How to get good price for your used bike?

Selling used bikes can just be matter of few days for some, while it can be harrowing experience for many. Many will just click a photo and run an ad in the local daily others might keep pulling their hair to quote the right price for selling their used bikes. Whatever be it, here are some basic selling tips for your used bikes:

Keep all documentation handy:

Keep all the relevant papers handy for your used bike when you decide to go for selling the same. Try to get all the service reports too, the time you tuned your bikes and thereof. Placing those papers to your buyer will definitely bear a psychological impact, as he will believe that the motorbike has been taken care of very well.

Get it cleaned:

Cleaning the used bike is very important, and bear in mind that it should not be a 10-15 minute wash before your buyer drops in. Instead wax it, try to remove the corrosive abrasions and stains if any and give the vinyl parts a wash with appropriate rejuvenators to give a better look for your bike.

Get it tuned:

Do not put up your used bike for sale if it is overdue on service. Instead you can fetch a better price if you keep your bike serviced and engine tuned. Additionally, get the tyres checked and keep the chain lubed. These will certainly impress the buyer.

Know the price:

You need to price your bike right the first time. Do not quote in a hurry. Instead get a well-informed decision on selling price using Bike Price Calculator.

Click your bike through a lens:

Get your bike photographed in some nice clean location. Let the sun shine on surface of your bike and it can fetch you better price than clicking the used bike inside a garage or in a clutter-dumped place.

Add to Premium Listings:

Listing your bike in Premium Section will guarantee that your ad gets viewed by several prospective buyers. This will also ensure that your bikes ad stands out from the rest of the advertisements and you will get more number of inquiries. Higher number of inquiries means the probability of success rate equally increases.

But whether it is in the print media or online media make sure that you place the ad with a photo and for details and more specifications leave your phone number. Do not be rigid on the price; instead keep the option open for a small negotiation.

All the best!
