Is Detailing Before A Sale or Trade Worth it?

Q: I am selling my vehicle. Should I detail it before I sell or trade it?

A: Absolutely. A detailed vehicle will bring a higher retail value if you are selling it yourself and your vehicle will have “enhanced curb appeal” any other vehicles that are for sale like yours. If you plan on trading the vehicle in for a new one, make sure it is completely detailed before the dealer prices it out. Most dealers devalue the trade for “reconditioning costs”” up to and exceeding $500. A completely detailed vehicle will increase your trade in value of your vehicle.
