How to sell a car - tip #1: Make sure you get your vehicle prepped for sale. When you buy a new Toyota or used car near Orlando, you expect it to have a clean interior and exterior and be up to date on all of its service, right? Same goes for your ride when you sell it privately. Make sure you give the interior and exterior a little TLC - wash, wax, vacuum, and polish. Also, empty your car out before you show it to potential buyers so they can envision it as their own without all of your stuff in it!

How to sell car - tip #2: Get all of the minor service issues taken care of; this means investing in things like oil changes or other routine maintenance, as well as replacing burnt out fuses or bulbs. You should also gather up your service records so the potential buyer can get the peace of mind that you've taken care of your car! You could even have a mechanic inspect the car for you and put their report in the file!

How to sell a car - tip #3:
Besides paperwork for service, pull together all the paperwork you have on the car before you sell it. If you've put on new tires or added any car parts or accessories, you should include the receipts in the bundle so they know where the parts came from and who they need to get in touch with should there be an issue.

How to sell a car - tip #4: Figure out your car's value! We have a handy Value Your Trade tool right here on the Toyota of Clermont website, so you can get your car's estimated value according to Kelley Blue Book based on things like year, mileage, and condition. 

Now you're ready to list your vehicle online or in the paper and start taking prospective buyers on out test drives - be sure to keep your insurance rolling until you actually sign over the title of the car to its new owner. You wouldn't want to get in an accident on a test drive with no insurance!
