How to Maximize Your Car's Trade-In Value

At Holman GO, our sales team is focused on helping you pick out a vehicle that you will genuinely appreciate driving for many years. When you are ready to make an upgrade, you understandably want to benefit from the highest resale or trade-in value possible for your current vehicle. Numerous factors impact your car’s value, and the good news is that many of these factors are under your control.

Easy Ways to Maximize Your Car’s Value

Your car’s value is directly affected by its condition throughout the interior and exterior as well as under the hood. To preserve the exterior state, park your car in a sheltered area when possible. Remove bird droppings as soon as possible as they are acidic and may damage the paint. Drive safely to avoid accidents that could impact future value. If your car is affected by minor dings or scratches, schedule a professional repair service as soon as possible. Inside the vehicle, keep it as clean as possible. Avoid eating and drinking in the car. If you are transporting pets or objects that are heavy or sharp, cover the seats with a protective cloth first.

Regular auto maintenance that is completed according to the automaker’s recommendations is essential for maximized value. These efforts, as well as your focus on keeping mileage to a minimum, will help your car’s mechanical components to remain in excellent condition for as long as possible. Any repair issues should be identified and addressed as soon as possible. This is because matters neglected can lead to stress and excessive wear on other components. Remember to rotate the tires regularly and to keep them properly inflated. In addition, maintain records of all auto services that have been completed. This document provides proof that you have taken great care of the vehicle.
