CARPROOF Vehicle History Reports releases a Used Car Selling Guide

LONDON, ON, Oct. 31, 2013 – CARPROOF Vehicle History Reports, Canada’s most trusted vehicle history report provider, announced today the release of its free 2013 Used Car Selling Guide, a new resource to help consumers sell their used car quickly, and with full transparency.

In this new Used Car Selling Guide, CARPROOF provides used car sellers with everything they need to know in order to conduct an open and honest used car sale. When consumers download the free guide, they will learn how to prepare a car for sale, how to determine the asking price, how to negotiate with a potential used car buyer, ways to finalize a private used car sale and much more.

Research has shown that buying a used vehicle can be an overwhelming experience and the information in CARPROOF’s Used Car Selling Guide can make that process easier for both the seller and the buyer. Sellers can help alleviate any negative feelings by providing buyers with as much information as possible throughout the buying transaction. A study commissioned by CARPROOF last year and conducted by BlueGuru Consulting found that six out of 10 used car shoppers place more trust in a used car dealer or seller and actually prefer that seller if they offer a vehicle history report.

Combining the information found within the Used Car Selling Guide with a CARPROOF vehicle history report enables a seller to establish trust and transparency with a buyer by removing the guesswork about a used vehicle’s past – replacing it with impartial, accurate and real-time data.
