Admit it, now that the weather is warming up and the sun is shining, all you can think about it buying that new car to enjoy it in.
And if you’re thinking about purchasing a new car from us, we’ll take your old one (here’s why)!
When you trade in your vehicle at one of our dealerships, you avoid the hassle of trying to find a buyer on your own, especially if it’s someone you don’t know or necessarily trust.
Even if you suspect that your trade in value might be low, there are some ways in which you can increase your chances of getting a better offer.
Get an estimate of your offer
Do your homework! The biggest mistake you can make is not knowing what your current vehicle is worth before you walk into the dealership. You’ve already completed all of your online searching for your new car, and now it’s time to search the value of your trade in.
Luckily, we have you covered. You can calculate your vehicle’s value here – it’s simple.
Make your vehicle look its best
As you’ve noticed on your search, the range of you trade in value depends on many factors like the age of your car, the history and mileage. Now, these are all things beyond your control, however there are other more cost effective ways to improve the condition of your vehicle to score a better deal when you trade it in at your dealer.
- Find the maintenance paperwork – Are you able to provide complete maintenance and service records for your car? If so, it will be worth more as a trade-in. Take time to track down all of your paperwork so that you can use this for your trade.
- Clean everything – And we mean everything. Break out the vacuum and clean up all of the crumbs, debris and outside elements in your car. Don’t forget the trunk. Shampoo your carpets and wash the seats as well. This deep clean may not get your vehicle looking like brand-new, but it will improve the value, giving you back more for the effort you put in.
- Determine what is cost-effective to repair – Does you vehicle only have a few minor dents and scratches? If so, it might be worth it to have these things fixed before your trade. Try and get an estimate for the repairs to see if it’s doable. The difference between ‘average condition’ and ‘above-average’ condition can make all of your hard work and repairs worth it at trade in time. However this is not always the case. Give some thought to whether or not it will benefit you.
