Dear all,

I would like to know the meaning of the following sentence. Is this a correct sentence?

"We should have had the car repaired before trying to sell it".

I just can't understand why "had" is used there


Thanks in advance

Dear sir,

We should have had the car repaired -at some time in the past.

Sir, so this means that I had to get repaired my car some time in the past but not happened

It would have been a good idea to to get it repaired, but this was not done.
