Hey guys,

My other half said she wants to sell her RR Evoque as she is not using it as often as originally intended. She used to drive to work everyday, but now that she works from home with occasional trips to the office, we don't see any point in having 2 cars sitting on our driveway. Normally she would just end up part ex'ing the car for a different one, but this time she would just prefer selling. Now I haven't sold anything as such for quite some time and that the car is of higher value (around 拢13k), I thought I would ask some questions for some tips on selling the car online? Any tips on pictures? Decent location around Cheshire for photos?

The idea was to post it up on Ebay / auto trader but also debating on some more 'specialist' websites? RR owners forums or somewhere with an Evoque fanbase...anyone on here that would be interest, potentially?

A little bit about the car:

Range Rover Evoque 2.2 Diesel - 4wd: Think it is the Pure edition, but not sure, will find out before making an ad.
63 reg plate
84k miles with full service history and recent MOT
2 brand new rear tires fitted less than 200miles.
Sitting on 20inch HSE dynamic spec alloys
Panoramic roof, two tone paint finish (black roof & silver body), white leather, sat nav, parking sensors, auto wipers, auto lights, headlight washers and a few other specs. I will of course list everything I know of in the post.

The car doesn't need anything doing to it with whatever it had needed doing previously, was done promptly, with recent rear wheel bearing replacement (a proper pig to do! 馃挬 )

I will get the car up for sale probably this weekend, but in the meantime I thought I will ask a question, if you guys have any tips on making the ad stand out? bring more eyes to the advert?

thanks in advance

I sold my E91 on Autotrader, gave it a mini valet, didn't over-price it and the first guy who came to look at it bit my hand off.

Describe the car and options. also worth mentioning the condition of tyres and brakes as those are mostly things that needs replacing when you buy a used car. When was it last serviced and when is next service due, MOT when it expires.

Take proper photos after the car has been cleaned and make sure the photos cover all angles of the car and make sure the pictures are the correct way up. Also take good interior shots along with a boot and under bonnet shot.

Avoid cliche's like first to see will buy, they dont help you sell the car.

Iv sold a few cars on autotrader and the above has helped me sell my cars in the past. Longest advert i had up was for 3 weeks before it sold for my 645ci but that was during the fuel crisis, otherwise usually iv sold my cars within 2 weeks of the advert going up.

Given how often RRs like to go walkies, I鈥檇 also take the pics away from your home, make sure EXIF data is cleared from any photos you send/upload, blank the plates, and use a bit of caution about where/when you meet possible buyers for test drives.

See what WBAC, Arnold Clark, Motorway etc. will pay too, in this market they might offer a number you鈥檙e happy with to just walk away with zero effort!

Also thanks @Nyxeris for the heads up, I never thought about that to be fair.
