Steps to Boosting Your Vehicle’s Trade-in Value

If you’re ready to take the plunge and want to make sure you get the highest return for your investment, there are a few steps you can take now, including:

  • Clean It Up: Consider having your car detailed and polished to give it curb appeal.
  • Get Maintenance Up to Date: Making sure all of your vehicle’s maintenance is complete will give buyers confidence that you are serious about its care and they’ll be willing to spend more.
  • Fix the Body: A car loaded with dents and dings can put buyers and dealerships off. Visit a local body shop and have the damage repaired.
  • Get Your Paperwork in Order: Being able to demonstrate that maintenance tasks were performed on time, and that aftermarket accessories were added by a professional, will help to boost your vehicle’s value.
