Preparing Your Bike for Sale
So, the time has come where you’d like to sell up. For one reason or another, it’s time to say goodbye to your old friend.
Whichever route you’ve decided to go whilst selling; we recommend starting the bike sale preparation around a week before your bike is about to switch hands. This will give you time to ensure your bike is fully fit, after you’ve provided with an MOT and a service. By doing this early you will have time to test out your wheels before parting ways.
So before you do anything to your bike, you want to give it a quick shower, removing any debris or grime that might get in the way when it comes to servicing the bike. The next step will be messy enough; you want your view to be clear as day so you can see what you’re doing, without any pesky chunks of muck in the way!
Servicing your Bike
With WeBuyAnyBike being the UK’s leading bike trader, over the years we have picked up on the different ways people generally service bikes, and which way they go about it. Therefore, we have come up with a little checklist for you to go through when the time comes to service your bike, preparing you to sell motorbike!
- Check Tyre Pressures
- Change the Oil & Oil Filter
- Double Check Brakes
- Check Electronics Including Lights
- Check Bodywork, Paint Surfaces and Mirrors
Once you’ve given your bike a good service, if you’ve noticed any paint chips on it, make sure to use an official motorbike paint specifically made for this type. There are a variety of cheaper paints out there, but these formulas may not mix well with your bike, causing it to look a little bit odd after you’ve applied it.
Following your re-paint, you want to sit yourself down, have a cup of tea, watch a bit of TV for a good few hours, or you don’t have to; it’s up to you! We just recommend leaving the paint to set a bit before washing it off. We know you’ve already given your bike a quick wash, but this one you want to give your wheels a good wash!
Remember when once upon a time, when you first bought the bike? There was a reason those wondrous wheels caught your eye, and it’s important to keep that time in mind. Try your best to recreate the appearance of your ride for the next owner.
