Car Trade-In Checklist
If you’re in the market for a new set of wheels, have you thought about what you’ll do with your current model? While you could go through the process of selling it yourself, why not make things easier and trade in your car to Baierl Chevrolet?
Our dealership proudly accepts trade-ins from all our Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, customers, putting more cash in your pocket and padding our used inventory. Plus, with this handy car trade-in checklist, you’ll be ready to get the most value for your model.
Trading in Your Car? Follow This Checklist
❑ One Last Maintenance: Many aspects are considered when deciding your car’s value. This includes the make, model, mileage, year, and, most importantly, its condition. Catching up on your maintenance before you trade in your model will help it run smoothly and get you the highest value.
❑ Auto Body Work: Do you have any small dents or dings on your vehicle? First impressions are everything, and when you repair these blemishes, you’ll be putting your car’s best face forward. Even if you need an entire panel replaced, it’s smart to repair the exterior of your vehicle before starting the trade-in process.
❑ Detailing: Cleaning your vehicle from top to bottom is another way you can present a great-looking trade-in model. Make sure you detail the interior and exterior of your ride or have it done by a professional to save time. This simple process can raise your vehicle’s value by hundreds of dollars in some cases. Remember to remove any personal items as well.
❑ Service Documentation: When you can present a document that details the service history of your vehicle, you could raise its trade-in value even more. Keeping up on oil changes, tire rotations, and other preventive maintenance generally increases the longevity of your model, giving our dealership more incentive to purchase the vehicle.
To obtain a history of your model’s service history, speak with the professionals at the service center you go to. Or you can obtain a vehicle history report online.
❑ Gather Other Documents: Vehicle service history isn’t the only document you’ll need when trading in your set of wheels. To ensure the trade-in process is as streamlined as possible, make sure you bring along the following when it’s time for your vehicle to be assessed:
- Vehicle title
- Current vehicle registration
- Auto insurance information
- Owner’s manual
- Any additional keys/fobs
