When making your listing, you'll need to upload a great set of photos (4 – 10 different shots) of the vehicle.
Photos are what sell your listing to potential renters so it's important to get a range of good quality interior and exterior shots.
Shots you should have are:
- The main image: Take this looking onto the front driver corner of the car, from a slightly elevated position (as if taking a photo from waist-shoulder height). This is the most common angle to shoot cars from
- Front of vehicle shot
- Side of vehicle shot
- Rear of vehicle shot
- Front interior shot - the best way to get this shot is from the rear seat. Lift your camera up, almost to the ceiling of the car and tilt it down so that you just cut off the tops of the front seats. You should almost be able to get the front seats up to the rear-view mirror, depending on the size of the car.
- Rear seats shot – the best way to get this shot is side on from the rear passenger’s doors. Open the door wide, stand outside the vehicle and take a photo from a mid-height showing the seats and leg room.
- Trunk/boot shot – open up the boot and take a photo to give the renter an idea of the space in the rest of the car and are useful for those carrying other passengers or luggage.
Our top tips for taking great photos are:
- Clean both inside and outside of the vehicle before you take photos. Remove all accessories that are not included with the vehicle so you don’t set unrealistic expectations.
- ALWAYS use your camera landscape (sideways). Your images will fit the aspect ratio of our image uploader and website.
- Take photos in daylight, ideally when the sun is shining. Make sure the light is coming from behind you to avoid photos looking washed out.
- Take two or three pictures from each angle so you can choose the best ones.
- Take photos in a nice setting. We recommend going to a park, the lake or the sea.
- Make sure you fit the whole car clearly within the frame of the photo. You can always zoom in later with our image uploading tool
