Why a Consistent Service History Matters When Selling Your Vehicle

When it comes time to sell your vehicle, having a consistent service history – ideally from the same mechanics shop, will matter to potential buyers or dealerships for a variety of reasons, and we’re here to help explain what those reasons are!

Why a List of Prior Services Matters

Knowing when, where and why a vehicle has been serviced, is important to savvy car buyers. As well, such records could offer you a better argument for dealerships looking to lowball the trade-in of your car, and instead – increase your selling price substantially.

With prior service records, you can quickly show a detailed report of positive auto care, or any areas of concern a buyer might benefit from, as honesty also goes a long way in selling a used car.

From tire rotations and purchases, to brake service, battery maintenance, oil changes and more, these types of records will add value and trust to anyone looking to buy your vehicle, and can count for a lot!

How Positive Auto Ownership Helps Resale Value

Having your vehicle regularly serviced, especially at the same mechanics shop, also displays you as being a positive car owner who takes care of their car. Spending time and money, as well as displaying loyalty for a service centre, shows you take pride in your vehicle ownership, turning your maintenance receipts into a return on your investment!
