If you are wanting to sell your truck, then you should take important steps to help it sell fast and for as close to the asking price as possible. Here are some of the things that you want to do that can help you to accomplish your goals of doing both of these things: 

Replace older tires

If you have older tires on your truck, then you should have new ones put on before you begin showing the truck to prospective buyers. Even if you decide to discount the price of your truck to account for the age and wear of the tires, people will often still make it a point to look at their condition and try to use it to bring down your asking price. They might play up any wear on the tires as if it is a huge issue. You can impress buyers by showing them a truck with brand new tires and it will make it easier for you to sell the truck for the price you have decided to ask for it. 

Have small damages repaired

If small damages to the truck are the only visual problems with it, then you may find it best to have the damage repaired. You will want to check into the cost of having the repairs done versus how much the truck would sell before the repairs and after you have them done. You might find that repairing them could earn you a very nice profit. In this case, it might be in your best interest to have work done to the areas that need repai. Some types of damage or damages in certain parts of your truck might cost much less to have taken care of than you may think. 

Have the truck detailed

A very important thing you definitely want to make sure you have done is to have the truck detailed before you allow potential buyers to come and see it. Detailing the truck will help every part of it look better. Not only will the truck be completely cleaned inside out, but the detailing will cause it to really shine. It can also make the truck smell great and a good smelling truck can sell a lot easier than a truck that has a stale smell to it when people go to take it for a test drive.
