Are you considering shopping for a new vehicle? An excellent way to get rid of an old one is by trading it to a dealership, like Pitre Kia, when you make your new vehicle purchase. 

Trading in a vehicle is an easy way for drivers around Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Rio Rancho, NM, to move on from an old car. Below, we'll discuss some reasons as well as what to expect when you trade in your old ride.


Benefits of Trading in Your Car

Trading in a vehicle is a convenient and easy way to get a vehicle out of your driveway. Rather than advertise your used car, meet strangers for test drives, and sell privately, trading a vehicle to a dealership saves you time and energy. We also take care of all the paperwork required for a vehicle sale, so you know that everything is taken care of. 

You can trade in a vehicle at the same time as your next purchase. The money you make from trading in your car can be applied to the cost of the vehicle you're buying. This means less financing and more focus on your new ride. 


What Happens When I Trade in My Car?

When you're planning to trade in your vehicle, you first should find out how much it's worth. You can do this by using our online Value Your Trade tool, which estimates its value. 

Afterward, visit our dealership with your vehicle and the title or loan information. You can either shop for your new ride first or take care of the trade-in, whichever you prefer. A member of our team will appraise the vehicle, confirm its value, and make a trade-in offer. 

Accept the offer and fill out some paperwork! You can then focus on finding your next ride and apply the money you made to it. 


 

How to Boost My Car's Trade-In Value

Everyone wants the most money they can get for their vehicle. There are a few things you can do to increase your cars trade-in value, including:

  • Cleaning your car
  • Bring any maintenance records
  • Repair minor issues

When you clean your vehicle, you can show you've taken great care of it. A car is worth more if it's in better condition. 

To prove how well you've taken care of your car, bring along any maintenance records you may have. This shows you've gotten the maintenance your vehicle needs to last on the road longer.

Does your car have any burnt-out lights or minor dents? Consider getting those repaired to potentially make your vehicle worth a little extra money.
