How Detailing Your Car Boosts It’s Value

We Canadians are known to be smart and logical car buyers. Our car buying decisions are most often based on sound research and knowledge and less often on impulse. As a result of making such great choices, the average Canadian keeps their vehicle approximately 8-9 years before deciding to start anew. Which means that the longer we keep our cars, the more exposure they have to damages, wear and tear and to the elements. Hence the need for detailing!

Imagine walking into a dealership and you see two cars of the same model parked side by side. At this point, we know nothing of its mechanical function, but we can clearly see that one is filthy and looks run down and the other is sparkling clean and visibly well maintained. Which one would you gravitate towards? The clean one, right? That’s because detailing your vehicle is key to boosting it’s resale value – and we know it’s not just about proper mechanical maintenance.

Keeping the appearance of the vehicle in above average condition – inside and out – is also just as important. Giving your car a deep cleaning at least 4 times a year is recommended. That would include vacuuming, shampooing carpets, cleaning and treating the interior leather as well as the dashboard and components. Cleaning the exterior regularly and applying paint protection and a protective wax at least once per season are also key factors in safeguarding one of your largest investments. By paying attention to the shine factor of your vehicle, you may also be adding a few extra dollars in your pocket when you resell.
