Want to Get the Best Trade-In Deal?

If it’s time 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 helps lower the amount you will 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 for a rough estimate of what a dealer might likely offer for a trade-in.


Get your vehicle looking like new! The impression your vehicle makes on the dealer can pay big dividends. And it’s up to you!  It’ll pay to spend some time scrubbing and polishing the exterior and vacuuming and dusting the interior.  It could even be worth the money 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 and will know exactly what dealers are looking for in a vehicle.


Fix any mechanical problems your vehicle may have, or anything you’ve been putting off.  Hire your mechanic to check out the car and prioritize any needed repairs.  Knowing about these issues will also 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.
