Before you bring your current ride in for a trade, here are some tips to help you get the most bang for your buck!

  • Be informed – Have a good idea of what your car is worth. Not doing your research can make what should be a fun experience turn into a “bah humbug” time if you thought your 1985 clunker is worth more than it is.
  • Elbow grease – Even if your car is priced at a certain value on Kelly Blue Book, be sure to detail your car. Your first impression should be your best impression! You’d be surprised on how much of a difference aesthetics can make – which brings us to our next point…
  • Ability to sell – Many times, pricing is heavily based on how likely your trade-in is to sell…FAST! To increase your car’s marketability, certain things like body work, paint and overall condition can either add or detract from your car’s value.
