Did you know that cars with great photos get up to 80% more requests? Sometimes making the most from your car listing is as simple as getting the right photos of your car up. So, here are a few tips on making your car’s listing more attractive and maximizing your earnings with great photos.

Here’s What To Do

Get your car squeaky clean. And show it off in an area with plenty of light (not in a garage and not after dark).

Highlight all the angles. Let people see your car’s full glory from multiple angles, inside and out. And show the whole car from at least one exterior angle.

Get creative. Don’t be afraid to make it clear why your car is unique. A memorable setting for your photos can inspire the imagination of renters.

Here’s What NOT to do:

Don’t rely on stock photos. Renters want to see your car, not a generic photo of the same model.

Don’t crop in too tight. Unless you’re only renting out part of your car, avoid photos that cut off part of the car (except for when you’re zooming in on a feature).

Don’t upload rotated photos. Rotate your photos to right-side up before you upload them. This is easy to do using Microsoft Paint, iPhoto, or another photo-editing software.
