If your car is in impeccable condition, it sells faster and for more money than if it shows signs of neglect. Car dealers detail every pre-owned car on their lots because they know it increases car values and their ROI. Private owners are also smart to take advantage of these profit gains.
Selling and detailing experts, such as the Car Care Council, NADA, and Kelly Blue Book, give pertinent information and explain why preventive care of your car is worth your time and effort. Thorough detailing eliminates defects such as swirled, scratched and oxidized surfaces, and increases your car’s value, producing the WOW factor that gets you top dollar.
Blue Star Auto Salon offers a specialized Auto Resellers Detailing Package to improve all components of your car’s interior and exterior, including paint, body, wheel surfaces, encompassing complete reconditioning and readiness to sell. This convenience eliminates considerable time and effort that would be required to do it yourself. A DIY job will not match the expertise, state-of-the-art equipment, and eco safe steam technology available in our detail shop.
Owners keep cars longer in a challenging economy, an average is 5-6 years in the US, before selling or trading for a new car. People are often unaware of their car’s diminishing appearance over time.
A once shiny new vehicle appears inadequate when given a once over in anticipation of selling for the highest list price. In one customer’s words, “I left my 1992 Lexus outside under the trees for ten years. I found Blue Star Auto Salon…my car looks brand new, interior and exterior, and Stephen even detailed the engine. I couldn’t have asked for a better result.” Though astonishing to hear, it is not surprising that Blue Star’s professional detailers make such a marked difference in the appearance of their client’s cars. They do it every day.
Ultraviolet Rays from the sun and environment are the number one cause of damage to your vehicle. The exterior takes a serious hit when exposed to weather and elements that cause dull paint and fading, scratches, rust, effects of winter chemicals, UV damage, and parking lot dings.
The hazy appearance of the paint and headlight lenses are caused by UV inhibitors that begin to fail at 50% of a 5-year wear cycle; surfaces become oxidized, cloudy and yellowed. This damage can be reversed by professional detailing.
Upon close inspection, owners find their car interior shows definite wear and tear with carpet and upholstery stains from food and beverage spills, muddy shoes, and pets.
Detailing the interior will sanitize and bring it back to original new like condition, dramatically improving the beauty of leather, fabric, and carpets.
Exterior paint oxidation and defects can be prevented by regular detailing and applying a wax/sealant coating, periodically. Along with providing greater shine and gloss, the applications will add protection that includes important UV inhibitors that extend the life of your paint.
Blue Star Auto Salon professional detailers bring your car back to its original beauty and increase its value between $300 to $500, or as much as $2,500 or more, depending on year, model, and overall condition.
