How to Get the Best Trade-In Value

Posted at Mon, Dec 5, 2016 4:45 PM

If you’re on the market a new or used vehicle, you need to be thinking about upgrading your current vehicle to maximize its trade-in value. Getting a good price on your trade-in will help lower the amount you owe if you are financing your new or used vehicle. #TimsTruckCapital&AutoSales has some recommendations on how you can get the highest trade-in value for your vehicle.

It’s a good idea to check the trade-in value using a resource such as the Kelley Blue Book database to get a rough estimate of what a dealer might offer for a trade-in.

Give your vehicle some TLC. First impressions matter! The impression your vehicle makes on the dealer is up to you. We recommend spending some time scrubbing the exterior and vacuuming and dusting the interior. You might even consider hiring a local professional detail company to really make look its best. It’s a good idea to let the detailing company know you’re trading in your vehicle. Since they work for many of the dealerships, they’ll know just what needs to be done.

Fix any known mechanical problems. It’s also a good idea to hire your mechanic to check out the car to see if it needs any repairs. Knowing about these issues will help you negotiate a good price for your vehicle. It will be helpful for the dealer to know exactly what type of work is needed to get the vehicle into top shape for resale.
