|Importance of Adding Your TRIM & VIN|
When purchasing items as expensive as a vehicle, buyers are looking for as much information as possible, so the more you provide, the better. Adding your VIN and TRIM information will tell buyers more about the car’s make, model, and history. It also shows that you’re a trustworthy, serious seller, which will attract more serious buyers and save you time answering questions.
A TRIM is a variation of the standard set of features on a specific vehicle’s make and model (e.g., like the difference between having an iPhone 6 or 6S).
