Refer to websites such as eBay to get an estimated price, but view the prices for cars that were sold and for those that are still selling. Get the history of your car from an online service. If you can document your vehicle's service history, including providing information about the parts used in repairs and work orders, it can make a huge difference in the price you can ask. Detailing the car can also help to attract more buyers and to increase its price.

If you are selling a car online, take as many quality pictures of it as possible, and upload them with the listing.

Always include your phone number in the listing so that buyers can easily reach you.
