Step 1: Cleaning/Detailing

  • Give your car a thorough clean. You might even want to have detailing done.

Step 2: Get the Necessary Paperwork

  • Obtain a safety certificate inspection so that you can officially declare your vehicle roadworthy.

Step 3: Get a Valuation

  • Receive an expert valuation of your vehicle and advertise. This involves composing an appealing but accurate description of your car and including some flattering and informative photographs of the vehicle, at various angles, to give a complete picture of how it looks.

Step 4 & 5: Get Prospective Buyers to Look at Your Car

  • Meet up with potential purchasers, so they can look at your car and decide if they are willing to accept the asking price.
  • Visit the Department of Transport and complete all of the necessary paperwork.
