A good method to sell a used C4 Corvette involves researching about the vehicle's fair market value, requesting an appraisal from a knowledgeable classic car reviewer, cleaning the car, and taking quality photos of the car. Auction houses and consignment dealers are common places to sell a Corvette. Another option is to sell online by posting on auction websites.
The Kelley Blue Book website offers good estimates of potential values of Corvettes that are less than 20 years old. For Corvettes older than 20 years, the Sports Car Market Magazine offers price guides. It also helps to survey members of local Corvette clubs to get an idea of the potential price of a C4 Corvette as well as to find experts who provide Corvette appraisals.
After obtaining an honest evaluation of the car, it's important to clean and beautify the vehicle to attract buyers. This step involves cleaning out the interior and exterior thoroughly and taking care of affordable maintenance tasks. It's also essential to prepare all necessary certifications, including vehicle safety inspections.
A collector car auction is a good place to sell a rare, valuable Corvette. Alternatively, owners may choose a consignment dealer who's responsible for ensuring a smooth sale process and managing the car's pictures and marketing for a fee. When selling online, Corvette owners should be extra cautious in avoiding counterfeit payments.
