Motor Auctions In Belfast, Northern Ireland - Hints And Tips For Selling Your Car

If you're thinking about selling your car at one of our motor auctions in Belfast, there are a few things that you can do to help improve your chances of a sale. Selling your car in a motor auction is much quicker and less hassle than selling a car privately; it means that you don't need to be on hand to arrange multiple viewings with different potential purchasers or arrange to advertise your car for sale.

Selling your car at a motor auction means that you already have a captive audience, with many buyers in attendance at any one time ready to make a purchase. But while motor auctions can provide a much less stressful way to sell your vehicle, there are still a few things that you can do to help encourage people to choose your car over the competition.

Preparing Your Car For Sale At Our Motor Auctions In Belfast

Although a motor auction means that you are handing over the main selling aspects to somebody else, you still need to make sure that you have prepared your car in such a way as to give you the best chance of creating a good impression with buyers. The best way of doing this is to ensure that your car looks clean - if you have mud splatters all over the bodywork and rubbish scattered throughout the inside of the car, potential purchasers may well just move straight on to the next one. Investing just a small amount of time making sure that your car is clean is well worth it - you could even get somebody else to do it for you by using a professional valeting service if you don't have the time to see to it yourself.

It's also a good idea to do a little bit of homework, to help you gauge how much you should be aiming to sell your car at auction for. Have a look around at cars of the same make, with a similar amount of miles on the clock and in a comparable condition. You want to make sure that when you enter your car for sale at our Belfast motor auctions, you are pitching at about the right price. This will help you to set a realistic reserve price that won't put potential buyers off and at the same time won't leave you out of pocket by aiming too low.

Before you bring your vehicle along to our motor auctions in Northern Ireland, you need to make sure that you have all of the correct paperwork ready to submit when you enter your car into auction. You need your current MOT document, any other receipts that you may have for work undertaken on the vehicle, the car's service history (if you have one) and the vehicle registration document. You will also need the car's tax disc and all the keys that you have.
