One of the most important elements of preparing a car for sale is choosing the price to list it at. Surprisingly, it can be a bit trickier than one would think. For some of us, our cars have been extravagantly well taken care of. A bit like a pet dog perhaps. But despite all of the pampering and “extras” that you may have added to your car, sentimental value must conform to the raw, real-world value that someone is willing to pay for your car.
Having done so myself several times, selling a car is no fun. No fun at all. If you’re stuck with your sale, then perhaps some changes need to be made. If you feel like your ad is lacking some zest, there are a number of things that you can easily do to spice it up. So let’s get your car sold already!
For years now we have been involved with a wonderful organization called Hope for the Warriors. Hope for the Warriors is a charity that contributes to the well being and restoration of service members and families that have been impacted by a significant wound or death sustained in battle.
It’s hard to believe that it has already been over five years since the birth of MilitaryCarLot.com. And yet every success story that we hear from you guys is just as exciting as the first one we ever heard years ago. Here’s what people have been saying lately:

Unless you are driving a miniature sized car, new auto designs are continually being optimized for safety. Regardless of how safe a car is designed to be, it can only go so far before the negligence of a driver causes a crash. In 2012, the fatality rates on U.S. highways spiked for the first time in years.
Winter driving puts all kind of pressures and pains on a car. Vehicles are susceptible to anything from salt corrosion to cracking hoses during the cold months. Once the weather warms up, giving your car a good measure of care is a must.
Serving in the military demands tough sacrifices. Many of us find ourselves constantly moving from base to base, serving away from our families for months or even years on end, serving in combat or even losing friends and loved ones on the frontline. We live in a great country which is why so many of us aptly respond to its call for service! Having given so much, it is always nice when someone throws us a bone.
It’s been a few weeks since our exploits at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and we have got yet another auto show coming to our hometown of Dayton, OH. When life gives you lemons, you go to an auto show. Okay so that might not make total sense, but the Dayton Auto Show is exactly where we’ll be tomorrow! Although it’s likely impossible to top the marvels that we witnessed in Detroit, there is always more one can learn about cars and what the auto industry is cooking up for us.
Spring is here! If you are or have ever been in the military, then you know that PCS orders are about to go out by the thousands.
