Leave a paper trail! Always keep records of your Orlando car maintenance so you can show the new possible buyers how well you’ve taken care of your car. Also keep repair records and receipts, as well as receipts for any parts and warranties that you add onto the used car. Don’t forget about warranties – you might want to pass them onto the next owner, so have documentation ready!
Don’t forget the soap! In order to boost resale value before you sell an Orlando used car, you should take care of the exterior (especially here in Central Florida where the weather is brutal in the summer). This means giving your car regular washes, as well as a applying wax on a routine basis to protect the paint. If your car doesn’t have a protective clearcoat, get one! Our Toyota Collision Center can take care of it for you… and they can also touch up dings, scratches, and chips, as well as provide paintless dent repair!
Up the value of your Orlando used car with these easy and affordable tips
Protect the interior of your Orlando used car. If you have leather seats or a leather steering wheel wrap, condition it to avoid cracking. You can also put seat covers and a protective steering wheel cover on to give your car a bit of a shield, and invest in a sunshade to help protect the interior of your used vehicle from the sun’s rays. Window tint will also help with this (and will keep you cooler on hot summer days by blocking out some light).
Get headlight restoration! You may have a shiny paint job and a sparkling interior, but dull or hazy headlights make your used Toyota car look dated and dingy. Give your used car the star treatment and schedule headlight restoration at our Orlando Toyota Service Center!
