Preparing Your Car for Sale – The Windshield
Now that you are ready to sell your car, the first thing you should look at is its engine. Make sure it runs properly, and soon after, move to clean it up properly, particularly the windshield. We have seen from experience that even the smallest cracks that would easily be repaired can end up bringing the car’s price by several hundred dollars, if not thousands!
Here are some practical tips to ensure that your car is ready for sale, particularly its windshield.
Get the Car Cleaned
No matter how good you are at cleaning your car, you can’t beat the professional touch. Get the car serviced and clean the windshield properly. Before a potential buyer comes, consider cleaning the windshield as explained in our guide here.
Clean the outside as well as inside.
Make Sure Your Car Is Roadworthy
Now, you need to check for anything that could hinder its ability to pass the vehicle inspection test, i.e., checking your windshield for chips and cracks. If any, you should consider getting your windshield repaired or replaced before you put it up for sale.
Remember, if you sell your car with a gash in your windshield, chips, or even if it just has scratches because of normal wear and tear, you won’t just have to deduct the price of the repair or replacement. Instead, you will also have to deduct ‘damages,’ i.e., the cost of inconvenience the buyer will have to go through to get the windshield replaced or repaired.
