Preparing your EV for sale

The fact is that with new makes and models of EV’s coming into Australia, the marketplace for your used EV is already growing and when you make the decision to sell, there is one BIG question that comes to the forefront.

 

How do I sell get the best price for my EV?

 

Remember that EV buyers expect the extraordinary. That means picture perfect photographs, taking new images specifically for purpose, allowing you to control lighting, camera and all the driving modes!

 

Here’s a guide to help you get into pole position when it comes to giving your EV a second chance to drive on the quietly adventurous road of life.

Location, location, location

If you’re looking for love a bit of primping goes a long way.

 

A good clean will bring out the best in your EV. Start with a wash and dry of the exterior body, then vacuum and dust the interior of the EV.

 

Now, that we’re in pristine shape we can think about where to take photos and even some short, personalised videos that will help garner buyer intrigue!

 

In real estate, it’s all about location. We can apply the same principle to getting a good photo of your EV.

To showcase the best features your EV has to offer, consider a background will bring out the best features, curves, and colours of your EV.

 

If your EV lives a life of solace in your garage, get social.  Take it out for drive and find a scenic location outdoors.

 

Some of the best locations are often the closest – think about your local park, a nearby beach or even a historic house.

 

Choose a backdrop that’s interesting with colours that both compliment and contrast that of your own EV.

Lights and Action

Natural lighting is always the best choice for any photographs. When you are ready to take the sales pitch photographs of your EV to accompany the sales advertisement, choose the early morning (sunrise) or late afternoon (sunset) for magnificently soft, and professional looking images.

 

If you do have to take photos in the middle of the day, park your EV in full shade.

 

Be brave when you are photographing your EV. Move the car around, change directions or park somewhere else if where you are isn’t working for you!

 

Remember, you are trying to sell your EV – and that means showcasing a life that’s quietly fully charged and driven by amazing experiences.

 

Delve into the details

With your camera or smartphone in hand, stand about three and a half metres back from your EV and start taking photographs while walking around the exterior of your EV.


Aim for 10 good quality overview photographs that show the entire vehicle including the hood, trunk, frunk (if it has one), and include all the unique style features you love about your EV.

Don’t be shy to edit and crop, highlight and use tools to enhance your images. Although, please keep your photographs under 8mb each in size and organise them in a clearly labelled folder within your device so they are easy to access when you’re ready to use them.
