When selling your car, there are several documents you need to provide to ensure a smooth transaction:
1. V5C Registration Document (Logbook): This document contains important information about the vehicle, including its registered keeper, vehicle identification number (VIN), and registration details. You must have the original V5C document to sell your car.
2. Service History: Providing your car's service history can enhance its value and give potential buyers confidence in the vehicle's maintenance and condition. It’s important to also include records of any maintenance, repairs, and inspections.
3. MOT Certificate: An up-to-date MOT certificate is required for vehicles over three years old. It ensures that your car meets the minimum safety and environmental standards. That’s why most buyers expect you to have at least three months left on your MOT certificate.
4. Owner's Manual and Spare Keys: Including the owner's manual and any spare keys you have for the car can be a bonus for potential buyers.
