Tips To Get Your Vehicle Ready For Trade-In

September 23rd, 2015 by

2016 hr-vThere comes a moment in every drivers’ life where they realize that their current vehicle isn’t working for them. This could be for a variety of reasons – your family is growing, you need a more efficient vehicle, or you’re just ready for something new and exciting. Regardless of the reason, your premiere Colorado Springs Honda dealership, Freedom Honda, is ready to help you upgrade to a new vehicle. If you’re trading in your vehicle for a new one, here are some tips to get your ride ready for an evaluation.

Remove clutter. Before you bring your vehicle to be inspected, it’s important to remove all of your personal artifacts from your vehicle so whoever is evaluating it can see the current condition of every part of your vehicle. From hiking gear to hoodies to pool floaties, your trunk and back seat has the potential to have a lot of things taking up space. Leave them at home before having your vehicle evaluated.

Clean. Listen, we appreciate that we share a mutual love of french fries, but we don’t want to see them on your floorboard. Or under your seat. Or anywhere else for that matter. Take an hour or two to deep-clean your vehicle – remove all the trash and dust through vacuuming, wiping, and dusting. Get every nook and cranny – it’s the little things that can make a big impact. Be sure to give your vehicle a nice wash, too!

Address small problems. When trading in your vehicle, it’s not expected for you to fix major issues (if there are any), but by fixing small things, you can get more for your trade-in. Fixing dents, getting a new key or key fob, touching-up paint chips are just some of the little things that can be done to make your trade-in worth more and increase its appeal.
