Get Top Dollar for Your Trade-In

April 25th, 2023 by

Welcome to Community Buick GMC, where we understand that trading in your old car can be a daunting process. You might be looking to upgrade to something new or just want to let go of an older model, but you may not know the best way to get top dollar for your trade-in.

Below, we will share with you some key advice on how to prepare and present your car when trading it in and the benefits of working with our dealership.

Cleanliness is Key

The first step in making your trade-in stand out is cleanliness. Wash the exterior and interior of the car and remove any personal items like trash or toys from inside. The cleaner the vehicle looks, the higher its perceived value, which translates into more money during a trade-in.

 Fix Any Minor Damages

Minor damages may seem insignificant, but fixing them before trading your vehicle will work towards increasing its value. Common minor issues include dents or scratches on the paint job, broken side mirrors, ripped upholstery, or damaged headlights. Once repaired, present maintenance records of services performed by professionals. This shows that you have taken good care of the vehicle, leading to better resale value if negotiated well!

Keep-up Regular Maintenance

Not only should you fix minor damages but also maintain your vehicle regularly. This includes oil changes, tire rotations, and other recommended maintenance tasks. It’s important to keep records of all the services performed, including any repairs undergone. Having a well-maintained car will demonstrate to our dealership that your vehicle is in good condition, increasing its value.

Know Your Car’s Value

It’s always a good idea to research your vehicle’s value before trading it in. A variety of online resources like Kelley Blue Book or TrueCar can provide a valid estimate of your vehicle’s worth. Knowing this information enables you to negotiate effectively with our dealership for the best price on your trade-in.

Be Honest About Any Issues

Being honest about any problems or issues with the car during the trade-in process is essential for both parties – honesty is always the best policy! Whether it’s something easy for us to fix or more complex damage that will require professional repair, tell us everything so we can give an accurate appraisal and streamline the process of giving you a fair valuation of your car.
