A little bit about AutoTrader
Although the website was first established in 1996, the company has been trading since long before then. The idea first came to fruition back in 1975. Founder, John Madejski introduced the idea to business partner Paul Gibbons in 1977 in the form of a magazine that he found in the USA. The company was initially called Hurst’s Thames Valley Trader. They later produced a second article in 1981, but this project didn’t last long.
Following the growth of the website, the publications were stopped in 2013 due to the success. Auto Trader has proved to be one of the most popular auto sales websites in the world. Statistics prove this! In 2016 there was told to be 8.6 million cars sold on the site.
Fun Fact: AutoTrader founder John Madejski left the company in 1991 to take over Reading FC!
How to Prepare your Bike for Sale
- Test Ride
The first step is to take a friend along on a test ride. This might be the last ride you get on this bike but it might be the most important! Ask your friend to sit at the side of a quiet road, then have a quick run up and down it. Having a second opinion from a completely different perspective will give you clarity on any noises that you might not hear your self.
- In The Garage
When you’re in the garage, you want to give your bike a service and a quick paint touch up. Well, a very detailed one at that. You also want to make sure that if you did hear any funny noises, to get them corrected right away. If you’re a bit of a mechanic whizz, you’ll know exactly what you’re doing, if not, take your bike to a mechanic, give him a list of what funny noises you’re hearing. Chances are, if he’s a decent mechanic he’ll be off on a test ride himself first, but there’s nothing wrong with some more opinions!
After you’ve painted and spruced it up, you want to give your bike a good wash and polish for picture day – get her looking as good as new!… You’re now ready to sell; whichever way you choose!
