Is it worth detailing my car before I sell it?

Oct 19, 2023 | General News

In our experience it is absolutely worth detailing your car before you sell it. You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. First impressions are everything when it comes to car sales, especially in Ireland. There is a huge difference in euros between a car in poor dirty condition and a professionally cleaned and detailed car. By difference we are talking thousands here, especially if the paint work needs paint correction to bring it back to life and restore it to its former glory. Let’s face it a vehicle in pristine condition, shiny and clean will draw in customers because its proof the vehicle has been taken care of. We have even had cases where customers decide not to sell their vehicle after having it detailed because they fall in love with it all over again!

Whether you are trading your vehicle or selling it privately, you want to get the most amount of euros for it. Statistics show that having your vehicle professionally detailed in advance raises the value of the vehicle by an average of 600 and in some cases a lot more. For example, if the buyer looks under the bonnet and sees an immaculate engine bay, they assume the car has been well treated all its life.

Every day here at our workshop, we restore cars to their former glory, amazing our customers and they are loving the “new car feel” we provide. We work hard to maintain an extremely high standard of clean, taking pride in our work.

Take the time to have your car professionally detailed before you sell it, one last hurrah before you let it go, it will mean a lot more money in your pocket.

Today, cars are very expensive, many people are having their cars detailed on a regular basis in order to retain its appearance and value when they sell the car, plus they have the added enjoyment of having a nice shiny car most of the time. If the car is maintained and detailed properly, it will keep the resale value high. Your vehicle is an investment and it’s nice to look after and have pride in it!
