Find Your Trade In Value

No matter what condition your vehicle is in its current state, and before you get any work done on it, it’s worthwhile to find out what its initial trade-in value is. This reference point gives you a great starting position to work with, so you know a realistic value, and where you can go from there. How do you get this value? Here at Davey Auto Sales we make it as simple as can be, all able to be executed from our website. Navigate to our homepage here click the What’s My Trade Worth? banner then fill out the following steps to find your guaranteed trade value.

Pay Off Car Loans

This one may seem obvious, but it bears repeating. If you have any car loans currently on your vehicle, it’s going to make it a lot harder to sell. Ensure that you pay off all of your car loans to make your car more appealing to buy, without those attachments holding it back. Keep this in mind, as it may result in you having to plan ahead for enough time to pay it off, and may prevent you from being able to sell it immediately or get the value you desire.

Get Your Vehicle Serviced

Sometimes we’re not always the best at keeping up on our vehicle’s service, or ensuring that it looks as good as new. If you’re looking at selling your vehicle, though, this is something that can’t be ignored. Any lingering issues should be addressed, as they could result in a lower selling price if they still exist when you sell. Obviously this may require money to accomplish, but can often help you make it back in a sale, depending on what needs to be done.

Treat Your Vehicle to Detailing

As well, ensure your vehicle looks the part, too, as a shiny and clean vehicle is much more appealing than one that’s dirty and has been poorly looked after. All of the vehicles you’ll spot in our dealership here at Davey Auto Sales are some of the cleanest you’ll find in Oshawa, which speaks to the calibre of quality that’s expected from those buying vehicles in today’s world. From a simple wash to a more intensive detailing that may be needed, invest in a clean and/or detail to get your vehicle looking its best before sale.

Selling your vehicle privately can be done, but it can often be a massive headache as you have to take on all of the work yourself, and will be dealing with buyers who aren’t professionals and often may incorrectly value your vehicle in what they desire to pay. Working with a dealership such as ours ensures you only deal with experts who know the value of your vehicle, and can make the process simple and convenient. Speaking for our dealership, we’ve been doing this for decades with people just like you, so you can trust in our abilities and proper valuation.
