Should I Trade-In or Sell My Car?
If you have an extra vehicle at home you may be wondering which option is the best when it comes to getting rid of it. Here at Pohanka Auto Group we’re ready to help with a quick overview of two great options -- selling it and trading it in. When you’re ready to take the next step contact our team!
For those who are in the market to purchase a new or even a used vehicle, trading-in your current car allows you to offset the cost. Depending on the trading value of your vehicle and the sticker price of the one you are looking to buy, you can lower your costs by as much as a third or help cover the amount you might normally have use towards a down payment. Keep in mind that a lower sticker cost also results in lower monthly payments if you decide to finance your purchase. Trade-ins work out well for customers that are ready to get a new vehicle and who want a streamlined process -- you can often get an in-person value appraisal and get the keys to your next car or SUV in the same day.
But what if you aren’t looking to buy a new vehicle? We’ve talked with many customers who are down-sizing or moving into a downtown area where they don’t need a car. If that’s the case, we are happy to talk with you about selling your vehicle to us directly. Many dealerships are looking to purchase vehicles or you can also sell it on your own via online sites or by marking it for sale in your driveway. You’ll be able to streamline your budget without the insurance, title, license plate, and even parking fees that can come with owning a vehicle. There’s no need to waste your hard-earned cash on a vehicle you don’t utilize, so if you’re in doubt take a moment to calculate the amount of times you’ve driven the vehicle in question in the past six months.
