Selling your car or truck? It's important to keep in mind that
prospective used car buyers evaluate the person selling the care almost
as much, if not more, than they examine the car itself. In order to win
their interest and their trust it is crucial that you should make a good
impression. Wherever possible possible, strive make your prospective
customers feel comfortable and be open in your response to their
inquiries.

Be ready to answer their questions as soon as prospective buyers start
calling. Answer questions posed over the phone honestly in an effort to
prepare callers for what to expect when they see the car. This works to
save both you and the customer a lot of time and work by making only
those appointments that have a reasonable chance of becoming a sale.
Furthermore, strive to make appointments with each customer for a
specific time, rather than leaving them to some vague time such as "after
work", or "Saturday afternoon".

Remember that making an appointment when selling a car increases the
chances of the buyers showing up. Don't feel obligated to wait for a late
customer. To help things go smoothly, request a contact number
(preferably a cell phone) and take it in stride if some prospective
buyers don't show. Cancellations, with or without notice, are simply part
of the process.

It should be expected that any potential buyer will ask to test-drive the
car. Ride along with them so you can answer questions, as well as ensure
the safety of the automobile. There is also the possibility that the
customer may not be familiar with the area, so riding along with them
allows you to serve as a guide.
Some of the buyers are likely to want to have the car inspected by a
mechanic. If a mechanic has already checked it, this is the right time
to show that paperwork. This is a reasonable request in any transaction
such as buying or selling a car.

Protect Yourself

It is important to be cautious and to take steps to ensure your safety
and the safety of your interests. For example, holding onto a buyer's
driver's license is a reasonable safeguard if a buyer insists on going on
a test-drive by his or herself. If the buyer has a problem with this
arrangement there's a very good chance that allowing an unsupervised
test-drive would go against your best interests. On the other hand, it's
not unreasonable for a buyer to want the car checked by a different
mechanic if it has already been checked by yours. Be prepared to go with
the flow a little bit, and you are more likely to get a sale.
