The camera never lies

If youre buying
Adverts with only one or two blurry pictures wont give you much of an idea of the cars true condition. If thats the case, is the seller trying to hide something? If you think its worth the effort, contact them and ask if they can send you some better snaps. Look carefully to see if the pictures match the description.

If youre selling
Good, clear photos of the car are essential for painting an accurate picture of its condition. Cover all the important angles, including the front, side and rear and, if possible, the cars interior. If you can have only one picture, make it count. Check that the car looks clean, too.
