How To Get The Most Money For Your Part Exchange

The value of your car in part exchange can vary depending on a number of factors; 

Age, Mileage, Specification, Condition,  Service History and HPI Status. 

Prior to going to a garage to view a potential new car and have your part exchanged valued we advise the following to help achieve the highest value possible. 

Condition

It is always a good idea to give your car a good thorough clean or have it valeted professional before seeking a part exchange valuation. This gives you the best chance of receiving the highest price possible

Remove any 'tatty' stickers

Touch-In any scratches or imperfections with a touch-in stick or have a 'smart repair' company do the work for you. The costs for this are relatively cheap and could make a considerable difference to the value you receive. 

The interior of a car can look a bit tired after time. A deep cloth clean should bring it up like new.

If your car has had any kind of paint and or interior protection be sure to mention it as this is likely to add to the value. You can find details about our Ceramic Coat - Exterior Paint and Interior Protection on our Warranty page. Not only does it protect your paintwork for 5 years the package also protects the interior which can be great for those with small children. 

Here are some of the benefits; 

Gleaming Exteriors

. Protects against corrosive effects of bird lime
. Can reduce depreciation by up to £500

Spotless Interiors
. Makes spills, dirt and grime easier to remove

Service History

Vehicle registration document/ V5/ Logbook in your current address
Current MOT and any previous certificates you may have
Any documentation/ invoices for work carried out. This could be from a cambelt change, engine replacement, manufacture recalls and general service and maintenance receipts

HPI Status

It's always a good idea to check a vehicles HPi status before attempting to trade it in. According to HPI 1 in 3 cars have a hidden history. If you are unaware of your current status you can pay for a check and certificate at www.hpicheck.com
