Car Detailing for sale

To detail your car for sale, you will need to give it a deep clean and protection, both inside and out. This will help to make your car look its best and attract potential buyers.

1. Start with the Exterior

  • Wash your car thoroughly. Use a good quality car wash soap and a microfiber mitt to wash your car, one section at a time. Be sure to rinse your mitt frequently in clean water.
  • Clay bar your car. A clay bar can remove contaminants from the paint, such as overspray, tree sap, and bird droppings.
  • Polish your car. Polishing will remove minor scratches and swirls from the paint, leaving it looking its best.
  • Wax your car. A wax sealant will help to protect your car’s paint from the elements and make it shine.

2. Clean the Interior

  • Vacuum your car thoroughly. Vacuum the floors, seats, and trunk. Be sure to get under the floor mats and in all the nooks and crannies.
  • Clean your car’s windows. Use a glass cleaner to clean both the inside and outside of your car’s windows. Be sure to dry the windows with a microfiber towel to prevent water spots.
  • Clean your car’s dashboard and other surfaces. Use an interior cleaner to clean the dashboard, steering wheel, door panels, and other hard surfaces.
  • Condition your car’s leather seats. If your car has leather seats, use a leather conditioner to keep them from drying out and cracking.

  3. Document Service Records: Gather and organize your car’s service records and documents to show potential buyers a well-maintained history.

Detailing your car for sale not only improves its appearance but also helps buyers see that you’ve taken good care of the vehicle. This can lead to a quicker sale and potentially a higher selling price.
