Cars become such an important element for making our lives easier that we end up building a sentimental bond with it. Therefore, when it is time to resell it, we all want to get the best deal, not only for obvious economic reasons but also because we believe it deserves it.

There are several things we can try in order to get a good deal for our old car. Good maintenance and a tidy record can provide a good hint to potential buyers of the car’s condition. Other elements like its mileage, brand, interior condition and avoiding over customization, can keep its resale value. However, after working for decades, fixing dents, creases and dings with PDR techniques, at Auto Rehab, we have learned that nothing works better to boost your car’s resale value than keeping its original paint.
