How To Get More For Your Car On eBay Motors


									              How To Get More For Your Car On eBay Motors
Everyday more and more people turn to eBay to sell products online and eBay Motors,
the branch of the company created to sell vehicles is no different. I have bought and sold
vehicles myself at eBay Motors and have had great experiences on both sides of the

There are a few things that one should do in order to get the best price when selling
online however. First, you must detail the car so that it appears as close to perfect as
possible and you should not any flaws. This will circumvent any headaches later.

Don’t go cheap on your auction description and pictures. It is far better to take many
pictures and put them up as a slideshow than to put one picture and say email for more.
Many people will not go through the trouble of requesting more photos.

From experience let me suggest that you take pictures of the following:

Start at the driver’s side and take a shot at an angle shooting toward the headlight but
showing the entire driver’s side in the photo then move around the vehicle taking the
side, rear, passenger, and then straight on front. Be sure to take close ups of any damage
or flaws and point them out in your text as well. Next, take good pictures of the interior
including the seats, floormats and under the floormats, the headliner, and the dashboard
featuring the odometer to verify the mileage.

Next, you want to take pictures of the engine compartment which is why it is crucial that
it has been detailed as well. One little trick I have used that I haven’t seen many do is to
also take the dipstick out and take a close up of the oil to show that is fresh and clean.

Lastly, this is something I learned from a shopper on one of my auctions. People want to
see the underside of the car as well to be sure there is no rust or other damage so be sure
to take pics of the underneath as well as the fender wells.

Be sure to answer any email requests promptly and courteously and include your phone
number so people can call with questions.
