If you’ve decided to trade in your car for a new Kia, taking a few preparations can help the process go much smoother. Follow these tips to ensure that you obtain maximum value for your used car during your next new Kia purchase:
Know the Value of Your Trade-In
You may have a rough idea of the value of your car, but only a non-partial appraisal can give you a number that you can cite with confidence when it comes time for a trade-in. Many dealers offer non-affiliated trade appraisals online, allowing you to enter the make, model, and age of your car, along with any damages it has suffered.
Clean It Inside and Out
Your car may run like a dream, but if it’s dirty and unkempt, it will look like any old clunker. Always be sure to give your car a thorough cleaning inside and out before bringing it to the dealer. For older cars, washing and waxing the exterior and vacuuming the interior is usually enough. If your car is newer, you may want to take it to a full-service car wash to have the exterior, interior, and engine professionally cleaned.
Get Minor Repairs
While you won’t want to invest in major repairs for your trade-in, repairing minor scratches, dents, and broken components can help enhance its value. More major damages aren’t worth your trouble. Your dealer will simply subtract the cost of any repairs from the value of your trade-in.
To help your trade-in go as smoothly as possible, be sure to neatly organize all vehicle records and bring them with when you go to the dealer. You’ll want to gather the car’s title, registration, owner’s manual, and any service records. If you use the same mechanic or dealer to service your car, you’ll be able to get a copy of its full service history.
