I am in the process to sell my 2004 Toyota Hilux KZ-TE D/C 4x4.
It have a dent on the mudguard and bonnet. See Photo. Drive into a erosion ditch late at night while taking photos of the milkyway. I do have a quote for repair. I am selling because I a buying a Landcruiser.

What will you recommend:

1. Sell as is and reduce the sale price with cost of repair?

2. Repair and show buyer the photos of the damage before repaired?

I agree
If you still have blank pages in your passport, it's probably time for a road trip.

Take pics BEFORE repairing it, add the repair quote, and volunteer this information when selling.


The buyer may just notice fresh paint and think "accident" ....


and ask the panelbeater to buff up the paint and make her all pretty again ... maar dan gaan jy NIE verkoop nie ... :)

The neater the vehicle the easier it sells. Not everybody will see the potential to repair it and those who do will try to push your price down even further.

If if you dont sell her for much more after the repair, you will be able to sell her much faster when she is fixed.

Thanks for the advice. I have accepted the quote and will take the vehicle in for repair.

Vertel my meer oor die verkoop?
'02 KZ 'Lux. Cooled. Chipped. Onca'd. Cherished!

A 4x4 is merely a machine that enables you to get stuck further away from civilization.

Thabo,

Ek vat die bakkie die 26ste April in paneelkloppers toe en verwag dat hy begin Mei gaan uitkom. Dan gaan ek hom adverteer en verkoop. Daar is 'n lang lys ekstras wat ek dan sal lys. As daar belangstelling is om die bakkie met selfgemaakte alu-cab, laaistelsel en dakrak te koop sal ek hom so verkoop, anders verkoop ek die ekstras los.
Dis 'n 2004 Hilux KZ-TE D/C 4x4 met so bietjie oor die 155k km op. Ek het hom in 2013 met 90k km op gekoop.
Ek is baie gelukkig met die bakkie, maar sal hom nie kan hou as ek die Troopy kry nie.
Sien foto.
Ek sal hom eerste hier adverteer.
Vra gerus as jy nog wil weet.

Ek sal die prys gee sodra ek die bakkie begin adverteer. Nog nie gereed om te verkoop nie.
