Are you planning on buying a new car? Most likely, you have an old car. You have a few options on what to do with it. You can keep it, and solely use your money to buy a new one. On the other hand, you can sell it privately to someone you know or probably on the Internet. Finally, you can trade it in at car dealerships here in Ipswich, QLD. You can use the resale money for a new car.
It Has Some Good
Now, trade-ins have quite a negative reputation since dealers tend to evaluate your old car at the lowest price possible, and then they sell it for a profit. Trade-ins do have their advantages, however. More than that, with the right steps, you can improve your old car’s resale values.
It is Convenient
Trade-in is the fastest and most convenient way to get rid of your car. You can avoid worrying about advertising; avoid waiting for a possible buyer and avoid the paperwork that comes with private car sales. More importantly, trade-ins help in reducing the amount you have to pay for your chosen new car. When you trade-in, you only have to pay the difference between the prices of the new car and the resale value of the old one.
It Can be Negotiated
When it comes to negotiations over the resale value of your old car, you will have more power depending on the model, the condition, the colour and accessories of your car. For one, cars in good or great condition can price much higher than beat up ones. You can have your car detailed and steam-cleaned to add some glamour to it. Black and silver cars will also have better resale values than pink or purple cars.
When should you trade your car in for something new? Experts from Boettcher Motors suggest you trade-in before the mileage goes over 100,000km, or just about the time that the warranty expires.
With all this, are you ready for a trade-in?
