Yes – you should clean your car before you sell. The fact is – we want to buy your car no matter what – but the better condition your used car, truck or SUV is in, the better price you will get. Autotrader states that a car wash, fresh coat of wax and interior detailing can translate to an estimated 200% return on your investment. When it is time to sell your car – better condition equals a better price.
