How to Get Your Car Ready to Trade In

If you’re buying a new car and you want to trade in your old one, there are ways to get your car ready to trade in that will help you get more value of it. They can knock down the offer on your trade-in for a lot of reasons, so try to take care of these issues before the dealer ever sees the car!

Clean your car inside and out, including washing and waxing it and vacuuming the seats and floors, cleaning the dashboard, and rinsing off the floor mats. If the dealership doesn’t have to clean the car themselves, they’ll be more willing to give you a higher offer.

You should also take care of any small cosmetic issues yourself, like scratches and dents. These are guaranteed to lower your car’s trade-in value, and they shouldn’t be too expensive to repair. This goes for small mechanical issues too—replace headlights and top off fluids if you need to. The dealer will fix big mechanical issues, and the cost of repairing them yourself is higher than the amount you’ll pay extra because of the lower trade-in value, so don’t waste your own money on it.

Make sure to bring all the accessories that came with the car, like extra keys, SD cards for the navigation, or anything else that came extra with the car. Not having them will lower your trade-in value.

These are just a few things you can do to prep your car for trade-in. Give us a call at Nehl’s Chevrolet to find out more!
