When it comes time to sell your car, you want to make sure you get as much money as possible without pricing yourself out of a possible sale. Use this simple spreadsheet to make sure you've accurately assessed the value.

Available in both Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets formats, the spreadsheet walks you through the key steps in assessing your car: grabbing a basic Redbook value, examining current sales prices online for similar models, and then determining your own price.
The spreadsheet is part of a much more detailed guide to selling your car put together by a Brisbane car detailer, which includes links to how to obtain roadworthy certificates for every Australian state and is worth a read. We liked this observation on the psychology of detailing your car:
Never state that the car has been freshly detailed; you want to portray that you always keep it clean and tidy. When potential buyers were inspecting my cars, they would say "wow, it's clean" or "looks spotless". I would say "Really? It's a bit dirty at the moment…" and flick a tiny bit of dust off a seat. Works every time.
