What You Should and Shouldn't Fix Before Selling Your Car

After raising seven children through their teenage years, I've had my fair share of experiences with selling used cars that have body damage. As a child saved up to buy a newer car, I was relied on to find a way to sell their old one for the most money possible. I have learned that fixing small dents and other aesthetic issues with your vehicle is a great way to significantly increase the sales price you ask when you put it on the market. But not all dents are worth paying to have fixed because it won't affect the value much. Whether you are just trying to make the money back that you've put into your vehicle or you're trying to make a profit, hopefully the pages on this website will give you some insight into what's worth putting your time and effort into fixing and what's best left untouched.

2 Things To Consider When Designing A Car Wrap


Starting your own business comes with a lot of responsibilities. Beyond having to make sure that you have enough staff on hand to handle the demands of your business, you also have to work on getting customers to come into the business to begin with. As a new business, it isn't always easy to get new customers to come and give your business a shot. One of the newest ways to advertise your business is using a car wrap. As you look into one of these wraps, there are a few things you have to consider.

Who is going to have the wrap on their vehicle?

One of the things that you have to figure out is who you are going to have driving around with the wrap on their vehicle. Are you going to have it be all of your employees or just a select few? Will you offer some sort of incentive to those employees who decide to take part in your advertising campaign? Some employers step outside of the box and pay someone else to drive around with the wrap on their vehicle. This works well when you want to make sure your name is out there and you don't have enough employees to do the job effectively.

What the wrap is going to have on it?

You also have to figure out what you are going to put on the wrap. You don't want to overdo it and throw in so much information that no one is going to be able to make sense of it all. Remember, people driving down the road only have so much time to look at these wraps. Because of this, you need to make a major impact that is going to draw people to your business and want to give you a chance.

Choose font that is easy to read, such as Arial, Times New Roman or Courier. Opt for a black text to help it stand out and easy to see. Make sure to include the specifics, such as your business name, website, address and phone number. A logo or catchphrase is also ideal. The font should be large enough that someone can read it as they are driving down the road without having to try and squint or strain their eyes.

By going through the things above, you can make sure you get a quality wrap designed and begin promoting your business in no time.
