Tip #1 Talk to a Mechanic Friend
To know the true worth of your Jeep, you need an expert set of eyes to have a look at it. The first thing that you need to do when you decide to sell your old Jeep is, invite over a reliable friendly mechanic who can look at your Jeep. He/she will help you lay your cards on the table and will help you prepare a deal. Once you know the best and worst deal that you can get on your Jeep, depending upon its condition, you are ready to invite some potential sellers.
Tip #2 Make it Look Good
If you are planning to post an online ad for your Jeep, you need to make sure that it looks as good as new. A full-fledged cleaning service at a reputed service station will only cost you a few dollars but will increase your chances of getting a good deal by attracting potential customers.
Tip #3 Keep all the Necessary Documents Handy
Once you have sent out the invitation to the potential customers, you need to start collecting all Jeep’s documents needed to make the transfer. The resale value of your Jeep increases by several folds if you can furnish all the service and registration documents at the time of transfer. If you find that some of the documents are missing, it is a good idea to apply for a new set of documents at the RTO as well as the dealership from you purchased the vehicle.
Tip #4 Flaunt the Modifications
Now that you have your car ready for sale with all the necessary documents, you need to list down all the modifications that you can sell along with the car. Some people will really love your car only because their taste matches yours.

It is advisable to always mark up the price of your car by a significant amount over the best deal price. This will allow you to still make the sale at the best price after negotiations.
