Selling your motorcycle can be intimidating, but it's really not difficult to accomplish. If you're hoping to sell yours soon, use these simple tips to prepare for the selling process.

Get Ready to Sell Your Motorcycle

There can be a number of reasons why you want to sell your motorcycle, but the idea of doing it may be stopping you. Whether you're stressed over how long the process will take or what it will require of you, there really isn't much to worry about. To sell your motorcycle, use these tips.

Determine Your Motorcycle's Value

As you get ready to sell your motorcycle, your first step will be to determine how much your motorcycle is worth. Do your best to be objective and take into account factors, like how old your motorcycle is, how it runs, and any other details that will make a difference. If you need help pricing it accurately, use a service like Kelly Blue Book to ensure you get it right. Keep in mind that if the price is too high, you'll have trouble getting interested buyers. You should also be open to negotiation since it's likely buyers will try to get you to lower the price.

Get Your Paperwork in Order

Before you list your motorcycle, be sure you have the paperwork you need in order. The most obvious thing you should have within reach is the title. If you find a buyer who is interested in purchasing your motorcycle, having the title ready to go will make the process faster, ensuring they don't lose interest while you look for it. You should also have the VIN ready in case someone asks for it. Chances are they'll use it to get a vehicle history report, so be sure you're honest about the information you give them. A bill of sale isn't always necessary, but it's definitely a good idea to fill one out when you finalize the sale. Include the terms of the sale and be sure the buyer signs it. This will help ensure that there are no issues to contest after the sale is finalized.

Get Your Motorcycle Clean

After compiling the necessary paperwork, it's time to clean your motorcycle. You can deep clean it yourself or take it to a professional to have it washed. The point is to get your motorcycle as clean as possible, without missing a single spot. Once it's clean, be sure to also give it a wax. This will keep it protected, but it will also make your motorcycle look shiny and more impressive. Don't forget to also take care of important tasks, like giving it an oil change and even a tune-up so that it's ready to impress potential buyers.

Advertise Your Ride

Now that your motorcycle is looking sharp, it's the perfect time to list it for sale. When choosing where to list your motorcycle, you may want to go for a combined effort of online listings as well as print ones. You can put an ad in the paper and also advertise your motorcycle on selling websites, social media, and forums. Be sure to start off your listing with a great headline. Your ad should include basic information about your motorcycle as well as some details and your contact information. For online listings, be sure to include plenty of photos of your ride. Take these in the daytime when the sunlight is most flattering. Shoot it from different angles and be sure to get detailed shots as well as wider shots.

Meet up With Potential Buyers

Finally, after posting your ad, you might start to get quite a few calls and messages from interested buyers. Do your best to answer all of these so you don't lose any potential buyers. Answer their questions and set up appointments to show them your motorcycle in person. These appointments should take place in a public area that isn't your home and be sure to take someone with you. Don't be surprised if the seller wants to negotiate, since this is common.
