How Exterior and Interior Car Detailing Can Increase the Value of Your Used Car?

Lambency Detailing

When it comes to owning a car, we often think twice about purchasing one because the value starts to depreciate the moment we drive it off the dealership lot. And all of a sudden, your new car is now a used car.

Aside from that fact, how you take care of your car can also affect its resale value. For instance, having a low mileage can increase the resale value as well as keep the interior and exterior in tip-top condition.

If you’re considering selling your car in the future and want to get the most money out of it, then you should get your car professionally detailed at Lambency Detailing. Here’s how car interior and exterior detailing can increase the value of your used car.

What Determines the Value of a Used Car?

There are several factors that determine the value of a used car, including mileage and the condition of its interior and exterior. In Singapore, the deregistration value of your car can add to how much money you can get back when you deregister the car. Let’s take a look at the factors.

1. Mileage

The mileage of a car tends to reflect the amount of wear and tear it goes through. If you only drive your car around the island for work or leisure, it will result in lower mileage, which also means that your car will require fewer repairs or services when it’s time for routine maintenance.

However, it’s not possible to keep the mileage down as you need the car to get to work, run errands, drive your family around, and long drives across the island during the holidays. This will result in the accumulation of miles which in turn reduces the car’s value.

2. Car condition

Let’s say you’re in the market searching for a used car and you spotted a few cars that you’re interested in. Upon closer inspection, you found that some of the used cars are reasonably priced as they are well-maintained, especially the interior and exterior.

This means that if you take good care of your car while using it, you can potentially fetch a high resale value in the future. Otherwise, you can only make do with the amount offered. Therefore, it is best to use the services of a professional car detailer to keep your car in the best possible condition.

How Exterior Detailing Increases Used Car Value

A vehicle’s exterior is the first thing that potential buyers like you will notice. Thus, it is important to keep your car in good condition and maintain its value by opting for paint protection, and the occasional polish and wax.

After all, car exterior detailing in Singapore can increase its resale value by making it look new and shiny. For instance, opting for paint protection like ceramic coating will protect your car from harmful UV rays as it offers superior resistance against heat, abrasion, chemicals, water, and impact.

Thanks to its silica base which is derived from quartz crystals and sand, the inorganic compounds will bond with the car paint to form a crystal-clear shell, resulting in a semi-permanent paint sealant that lasts longer than most car paint protection.

If your car’s paintwork is not protected, it will remain exposed to various environmental contaminants and hazards. Over time, this will reduce your used car value. This is why it is recommended to have a professional detail done every 6 months or so, depending on how often you drive your car and how rough your driving habits are.

How Car Interior Detailing Increases Used Car Value

Aside from noticing the exterior of the used car, potential buyers will also notice the interior condition of a used car. After all, potential buyers will only make their decision if they are satisfied with the car’s condition.

Just ask yourself; would you purchase a used car that is rarely maintained with stained upholstery or a well-maintained one with interiors that are spotless and clean? If it’s the latter, then you should consider a car interior detailing for your used car.

Besides, car interior detailing in Singapore is a service that is becoming more prominent and popular in the used car industry. It’s an effective way of increasing the value of your car, and it will also make your used car look brand new.

There are many benefits to getting your car interior detailed, such as making sure that there are no stains or dirt on the upholstery, and making sure that there are no stains on the carpeting. Car interior detailing will also help to keep your dashboard looking new for years to come.

In conclusion, getting your car’s interior and exterior detailed every 6 months or so by professional detailers like Lambency Detailing can help increase its resale value.
