As the motor industry prepares for a spike in vehicle sales following the introduction of the new registration plates in September, motorists are being advised to get their cars in top condition before selling.
Leading automotive publication, Auto Trader, recommends fully preparing your car to potentially increase its sale price. A spokesperson for Auto Trader comments, “Preparing your car properly can make a used car look new – adding hundreds of pounds to its value.”
WhatCar? also advise: “Whatever the car, bodywork damage should be repaired properly, or it will prove a complete turn-off to potential buyers, and a dealer may not want it at all.”
Minor dents, scratches and scuffs can all either put buyers off - giving the view that the car hasn’t been cared for - or provide a reason to knock money off the asking price.
ChipsAway, the UK’s leading minor car body repair specialist, can help motorists maximise the value of their cars with their high quality, cost-effective service. Professional repairs carried out using the ChipsAway system preserve the integrity of the car's original paintwork and therefore its value. Operating from fully equipped mobile workshops, specialists can repair everyday wear and tear to car paintwork such as scratches, bumper scuffs and kerbed alloy wheels, quickly and cost-effectively.
ChipsAway CEO, Tim Harris, said: “The new registration is always an exciting time if you are lucky enough to have ordered a brand new car, but it is important not to over look your old car. Whether you are selling privately or part-exchanging it, if your car isn’t up to scratch the price tag won’t be either!
“ChipsAway can repair minor dents or scratches at a fraction of the cost of traditional body shop methods– meaning you can achieve maximum profit from your car for minimum expense!”
