Clean your car
It may seem obvious but getting out a bucket and sponge and making your car look as good as new will help it to appear more appealing.
Keep your service records safe
Ensure that you have all service history and MOT information to hand as not only does it help with the value but will need to be provided with the car at the point of sale. It would also be a good idea to have an up to date MOT carried out too.
Check everything working?
Check all the electrics to ensure that it is all working correctly. If not, it might be an idea to see whether it is financially viable to get elements repaired prior to trying to sell your car.
if you have damage on the car you may wish to consider getting it repaired prior to getting your car valued.
Keep mileage low
the lower the mileage the better, so if you can restrict your driving time to keep your miles lower this will help.
Find your spare keys
it is always helpful to have two keys so get them ready too.
