If there is one good reason to sell a car then it’s to get another one! Everyone likes a change now and then and, once the first flush of proud ownership wears off, thoughts will always turn to the next car on the wish list. That's why here at eCars247 we offer a wide range of top-quality used cars that are sure to tempt the automotive taste buds of owners looking for a change. There's a catch though; first of all the current vehicle needs to sold and a car cannot be sold without potential buyers seeing it.
Take Plenty Of Photographs
A picture paints a thousand words; that’s what they say. With the rise of the internet as a shop window and sales tool, prospective buyers want to have a good hard look at a car before they start organising viewing trips or ordering directly online; an increasingly popular method of purchase. Anyone interested in a motor for sale will expect to see images. It falls to the seller to make sure that these photos are as good and as representative as they can be. That’s why we shoot our cars from every conceivable angle. Check out our individual galleries.
Spruce It Up
Obviously, and it almost goes without saying, your car should be well spruced up. Half-hearted won’t do. It should be gleaming. A thorough going-over or even a professional valeting will make it look its best. When that’s done, well, that’s the time to start snapping away.
Take a look at the image of the Porsche Cayman. The car was driven out to an attractive location on a nice day and shot using a simple consumer camera. It could equally have been done on a compact or a decent phone; high-end equipment isn’t necessary as even our smartphones do a decent job. Certain aspects are vital though: the exposure needs to be spot on and the shot, in this case, was taken from a low position to emphasise the sleek design of the Porsche. The inclusion of the road hints at driving pleasure and so on.
Technically, nothing much needs to be done but plenty of pics should be taken. It’s best to shoot early or late in the day to avoid any harsh glare from the sun (when available). If the camera has a fill-in flash facility then use it. A little bit of light blipped into the foreground will lift colour.
It’s a drag having to wait around for private buyers or to stand in the road watching time-wasters kick the tyres. Most sellers these days go for the part-exchange option as the smart and quick way to the next vehicle. eCars247

A little bit of prior attention and the route ahead to the next great car is an open road.
