Why part exchange multiple cars?

As circumstances change your needs in a car adapt too. For whatever reason you may need to replace your car you can trade in multiple vehicles to a dealership to contribute to the cost of a new vehicle. By trading in more than one vehicle you can reduce the price of your new vehicle to a more attractive price.

However, you may find that you could get a better price for your vehicles by selling them separately and not trading them in as whilst completing a part exchange the dealership will hold the bargaining power and may not give you the best deal as they know you are in the market for a new car.

How does part exchange work?

Put simply part exchanging your car just means trading in your car for cash that will be deducted from the cost of the new car you are purchasing. You will go into a dealership who will buy your car off you for the amount they value your car for, and this will then go towards the cost of the vehicle they are selling you. So, when you are purchasing a new car the remaining balance to pay is the difference in price between your old vehicle and the new vehicle.

An example of how a part exchange works is if you went into a dealership and they valued your car at £4,500 and the car you wanted to purchase is £20,000, you would then need to pay £15,500 to purchase your new car.
