Each part of a vehicle has the potential to be what sells an automobile. This is why a vehicle must be properly cleaned before taking images to sell it online. Millions of automobiles are displayed for sale online everyday; therefore making your vehicle stand out above many others is the secret to selling it fast!
Make The Vehicle Irresistibly Photogenic
First off, spend some time cleaning the vehicle from top to bottom. A clean car has a better chance at selling fast over a dirty one! The hard work involved in cleaning the vehicle will be noticed in the photographs. That labour will pay off by providing you the top money for the vehicle.
Clean the engine first. This is the first thing that a potential car buyer looks at when they shop for a vehicle. It can be done at home with engine cleaner, old cloth rags and a hose to rinse it off. Make sure the engine compartment around the motor is vacuumed to remove debris such as leaves and pine needles. Remove any grime build up with cleaner and old cloth rags.
The interior should be the next area to clean. Use a leather conditioning formula for cars with leather interior. Cloth interiors can be scrubbed with detergent and a brush. The carpet should be done using the same formula. The dash, doors and glass should be cleaned with auto detailing sprays.
Vacuum the trunk and use the interior formula if needed. Wash and wax the vehicle to bring out the shine. Spend the time necessary to clean the tires and wheels. Buff the headlights with a cleaner that makes them look new.
Excellent Auto Photography
Nothing looks worse than seeing online car advertisements with blurred or poorly lit photographs. The key to great pictures is using good equipment. Never be lazy by using a cell phone camera if a DSLR camera is available. A tripod with that camera can make those images tact sharp. Keeping the camera from moving can bring out greater details in the images.
Beautiful pictures of the vehicle will bring buyers to the doorsteps. Start with the clean engine. Take a few photographs of the motor to add online so buyers see it. Make a few images of the side, front and back of the vehicle to post online. Open the doors of the car to display the interior. Also take a few photos of the interior section to display online. The seating area, shifter, door panels and the instrument panel are good photographic opportunities to offer details to buyers.
Use an image-editing program similar to Photoshop to adjust the images and reduce the size of the files for faster uploading. The colour of the photographs can be changed to make them more appealing to customers. Any part of a photograph can be cropped out and adjusted to show more details.
Upload as many photographs that are allowed on various advertising websites. All of the hard work spent cleaning the vehicle will now show in the photographs. The shine and mirror finish of the automobile will be noticed in the pictures drawing more interested buyers!
