How to clean up

・Exterior
1. Wash car body, window, and wiper
2. Wash wheels and outside of the tire
3. Clean up under the car with a high-pressure washer
4. Wash the engine room
5. Wax for car body, wheels, tire,  and engine room

One Point
If there are scratches or dents on the car body, you should go to a repair shop to get a quotation for repairing.
However, you don't need to fix it before selling.
Because if repair shop doesn't have enough skill for painting, the damages will become bigger.
You can discuss with a buyer who will repair the damages. Buyer? or Seller?

・Interior
1. Remove all the private items in the car
2. Remove and clean up the floor mat (If wash by water, it should be sun-drying 3 to 4 hours)
3. Wipe the window, dashboard, seat, drink holder and handle
4. Vacuum inside of the car, seat, under the seat, and trunk
5. Remove the smell

One Point
When you clean inside of a car, deodorization is the most important point.
You may not realize, but each car has its own smell after using several years.
If you are a smoker or you have a pet, there is a unique smell in your car.
AutoMarche advises that how to remove the smell as below.
