You may be considering part exchanging your Audi if you are looking to buy a new car and trade-in your existing one in the same transaction. However, sometimes it can be complicated when you are buying and selling your car at the same time, and you may want to research the value of your car before going ahead with the part exchange to ensure you’re getting the best price.
To make sure you get a fair price for your car, you should research how much your car is worth by getting a free valuation in less than 30 seconds or researching your car on popular car selling websites.
In comparison to selling your Audi privately, part exchanging will be more convenient as you won’t need to advertise your car, prepare your car for resale, spend time arranging viewings or deal with potential buyers. Simply all you need to do is find the car that you are looking to buy, ask the dealership if they can make you an offer for trading in your current vehicle and everything will be handled by the dealer. A recent survey of over 3,000 motorists conducted by webuyanycar found that almost 8 in 10 will consider buying their next car from a dealership, therefore it may be an attractive option to part exchange, however, we would always advise you check you are getting a fair price for your car as part of the transaction.
Despite part exchanging being a convenient way to sell your car, there are some drawbacks. Firstly, you may end up with less than the car is worth for the convenience of part exchanging as the dealership will have overheads and still need to make a profit. Furthermore, if the dealership you’re selling to doesn’t specialise in the car you’re selling, they may not be able to demand a high price at resale and won’t be able to offer you a competitive price.
When part exchanging, you also have less bargaining power over the price they offer because they have the vehicle you are interested in and therefore hold the negotiation. If you see a vehicle you are interested in, you may want to research the market first by getting an online valuation in less than 30 seconds and becoming a cash buyer, potentially getting you a bigger discount on your next car.
Lastly, the process of part exchanging can be more complex due to having two transactions take place in one go. We would recommend splitting up the deal so you are getting a fair price for your Audi and the car that you are buying, which should be less complex than the dealership withholding the information and treating it as one transaction.
If you have decided that you are happy with the valuation the dealership has given you for your Audi and you want to go ahead with the part exchange, you will need to provide them with the following:
