By servicing your car at the dealership, you can present a full list of receipts to prospective buyers who will see that you cared about your car.

You can protect the exterior of your vehicle with a wrap which shields the paint from rocks chips and other debris. It costs less than $500 and usually pays for itself after the first year. You also want to make sure you protect the interior of your vehicle by applying a protective product to your vehicle’s upholstery.
