Test RidePut yourself in the buyer’s shoes. This first step is particularly advisable if it’s been a while. Getting your gears back in the game is an absolute must if your bike has been sat in the garage for some period of time. Whilst you’re on the move, you might want to be focusing on the sound and feel of your bike, more than the enjoyment of one of the last trips you might make on it! Take a mental note, or simply pull over for a little jot down on your phone; you don’t want to miss these moments!
Give it a Good Service!So, you’re back from your ride, you’ve spotted some things that need looking at. Now is your chance to fix them before anyone else notices! It will save you a lot of hassle and embarrassment when a buyer comes to buy your bike, and questions your price. The last thing you want is someone rightly haggling you down for any mishaps that your bike has encountered over the years. Here are some things that you might want to check, as well as the things you noticed on your travels: - Tyre pressure, as well as any damage on the wheels. - Replace the oil - Check the electrics – including the lights. - Check the brake fluid, if there were any errors, they should’ve come apparent during the test drive; but it doesn’t hurt to have a look! - Double Check the bodywork, any chips in the paintwork, or anything that will make your bike stand out (not in the right way... yet) - Mirrors; check those too!
You’re not finished yet!You may be thinking; it’s all systems go! But it’s not, just yet! Following the service of your bike, you can now focus on making it look good; making it stand out from the sea of bikes that surround it. Your bike is now practically in competition mode, and you want it to be a winner. I know it might seem like a mission, but the next step is to give your wheels a wash, just a quick one! Following this, you want to give it a good coat of wax, and then another wash and polish just to remove any access wash, paint, or general grime that might be hiding in the crevices. The aim of the game is to make your bike look as good as new! It’s important to remember that this bike once stood out to you too, and you want to give that impression to the person who is buying the bike. If you’re selling it privately, then this is definitely the case. On the other hand, if you’re selling to a motorbike buyer like us; you’re going to want to make it look equally as spectacular! WeBuyAnyBike buy a lot of bikes, regardless of their age, mileage, or condition. However, if it’s in great condition, and you happen to stumble across one of our drivers, you want them to feel like they want to own the bike for themselves.

Sell Motorbike; The Private ValuationsYes, these do exist! However, it is important to be mindful of the fact that there are many people on second-hand sites. A lot of these people may not know a lot about bikes, and they may be asking for very little or highly over the advised asking price. Comparing prices to these similar bikes may seem like a good idea, but you can only really compare mileage and age on these websites. Comparing the condition, on the other hand, this step is a tricky one. You could start contacting these people, pretend to be their buyer, but this would take a lot of time and hassle.
