When selling your truck, you want to price it so that you can get the maximum return on investment. You won't get as much as you paid for it but you can do a few things to determine what a good selling price is. Not only should the truck be priced fairly, but to sell it in a timely manner, you will need to align the price in accordance with the market value of the truck.
Things You'll Need
Log on to Kelley Blue Book's website at www.kbb.com. Enter the kind of truck you have, its mileage and trim details, and KBB will tell you what the market value of your truck is. This will give you a general idea of how much you should price your truck at.
Look at classified ads online and in print and see trucks that are similar to yours and how much they are priced at. You can use this to gauge where you should price your truck in comparison to other ads.
Get the truck professionally detailed. This will allow you to raise the asking price of the truck to show that you cared for your vehicle.
Tips & Warnings
- Utilize truck forums online for classified ads because they have large communities that are in search of trucks on a daily basis.
- Be careful of scammers wanting to send you a cashier's check from overseas. Always deal with people locally or willing to fly out to your location.
