What is trade-in value?


The trade-in value of a car is the amount that a dealership offers to put towards the purchase of a new vehicle when you part exchange. This means that you trade-in your old car and walk away with a new car in the same transaction. Whilst it can seem convenient, trading in your old car can be complex due to there technically being multiple transactions. This can make it difficult to establish whether you’re getting a good deal and you may be able to get a better price by selling to webuyanycar.


How trading in a car works


When you choose to trade-in your car at a dealership, the price you’ve agreed on beforehand is subtracted from the price of the car you are purchasing. If you have outstanding finance payments, the dealer can take over the debt and pay off the loan, if it makes financial sense for them to do so. It is important that when you trade-in your car you get a good deal for your current vehicle and the one you’re purchasing. You should also consider the structure of the finance agreement and look at how much you’re paying over the entire term, not just the monthly payments.


Trade in isn't what you think!


Trading in your car during the purchase of a new vehicle can initially seem like the best course of action, especially when looking for a no-nonsense way to get rid of your old motor quickly.

What many people fail to realise however is that they can often get a lot less than what their car is worth, and the trade in value they receive is far from fair. While putting your old car in against the cost of a new one is good for reducing the price, surely it would be more beneficial to get a better price for your old motor elsewhere, and then use that money as a down payment on a new car?

Luckily there is a way to sell your car that is just as simple (if not simpler!) than trading in your car. Webuyanycar!
