How to Get the Best Trade-In Deal

Posted at Wed, Oct 19, 2016 10:15 AM

If you’re looking to buy a new or used vehicle, it’s also time to upgrade your current vehicle to maximize its trade-in value. In addition to a down payment, getting a good price on your trade-in will help lower the amount you owe on your new or used vehicle. Here are a few ways you can do this.

Check the trade-in value with a resource such as Kelley Blue Book. You can use KBB’s data base to get a rough estimate of what a dealer might offer for a trade-in.

Spruce up your vehicle by giving it some TLC. The impression your vehicle makes on the dealer is up to you. It’ll pay to spend some time scrubbing the exterior and vacuuming and dusting the interior. It could even pay to hire a local professional detail company to really make it shine. It’s a good idea to let them know you’re taking the vehicle in for a trade since they work for many of the dealerships, sprucing up vehicles before they’re sold.

If your vehicle has any mechanical problems, it’s a good idea to get those fixed. Hire your mechanic to check out the car and prioritize any needed repairs. Knowing about these issues will help you negotiate a good price for your vehicle. The dealer will appreciate knowing exactly what time of work is needed to get the vehicle into top shape for resale.
