Classic Car Seller’s Tips

  1. Before you place the car for sale

    Take it to a qualified mechanic that specializes in that type of classic car. If there are repairs needed, consider how those additional costs may increase the overall value.

  2. Research similar models

    See the range of prices for your particular classic. Typically, classic car values are higher for those that have been well maintained and are as original as possible. How does that year, make, model compare to others in the product line? How does car condition factor in? It’ also often best to avoid adding aftermarket parts to a classic if you plan on reselling it in the future.

  3. Put together an advertising plan

    This may include an Internet or newspaper posting, pictures and detailed information about your vehicle, contacting local dealers, mentioning the sale to friends and family, and posting an ad in classic car magazines. You can increase the appeal of your classic by taking quality photographs.

  4. Respond quickly

    Respond quickly when potential buyers get in touch with you, and be sure to respond professionally. You are now in a salesperson role, and all that that entails. Obviously this often means bending to the prospect’s availability to view or discuss the car.

  5. Or… save yourself the hassle!

    If you want to skip the time researching, advertising, dealing with all the tire-kickers etc, you may want to get in touch with the professionals at AlexManos.com who can buy your car outright and provide a fair current market value for your car.
