Follow These Tips to Get More Money Back From Your Vehicle Trade In

It is income tax season, and this means that a lot of people are getting ready to purchase new cars. Before you get ready to purchase, you want to make as much money as you can from the dealership for your vehicle trade in. There are several things that you can do to accomplish this goal, including taking a look at custom auto paint options and various auto body repairs.

Fixing Up Your Car

There are quite a few things to do before you bring your car in the dealership to find out trade-in value.

The first thing you want to do is wash the car inside and out. This will ensure that your car looks neat and well maintained, as well as give you an idea of what needs to be fixed up.

Try to fix any dents and scratches. You don’t want to give the dealership any reason to offer you a lower price. There may be all sorts of different auto body work that needs to be done, and when you can get it done affordably, it can be well worth it so that your income tax return goes further on your new car.

Take a good look at your tires. While you shouldn’t generally purchase new tires before you trade in your vehicle, it may be worth getting a new set if there is no remaining tread. At the very least swap them out for a used set that is in better shape than yours. Poor tires are going to make dealerships question whether everything else is in good working order, too.

A Few Other Tips

There are a few other tips you want to follow in order to get the best deal on your trade-in as well.

Don’t clear out your car of all personal items. Even though you are going to the dealership with the idea of making a deal, a car that's too clean shows the dealership that you eager for a deal, giving them the upper hand.

Take the time to do your research on what your make/model is getting on the used car market so that you know whether the dealership is offering you a good trade-in value. You may even want to print out trade-in values from Kelley Blue Book to show them.
