At Steve Austin’s Auto Group, we’re always looking for quality trade-ins to expand our used vehicle inventory — and we want to help you afford a new car in the process! That’s why we’re ready to offer a good deal on your trade-in. To get the best offer from us, here are some ways you should prepare your old car beforehand and increase its trade-in value.
Fix Any Simple, Cheap Problems
You definitely shouldn’t overhaul your old car just to make a couple of extra bucks on your trade-in, but certain fixes could pay off for you, especially if your car is relatively new. This may involve patching a flat tire, fixing whatever is tripping the check engine light, and repairing any broken glass or burnt bulbs.
Clean It Up
A messy appearance can make a bad first impression. We want to see your old car in the best light possible, so show us how your car can sparkle. Clean it outside and inside, washing off any filth and removing all the trash that’s accumulated.
Have Thorough Repair And Maintenance Records
If you’ve taken good care of your car over the years while living in Bellefontaine, Ohio, we want to know that! Prove how dedicated you’ve been to caring for your old car by gathering all the service receipts and invoices, whether you paid a mechanic to do the work or did it yourself at home.
If you have any questions about the trade-in process here at Steve Austin’s Auto Group, we welcome you to call us. We’re happy to answer your questions and ease any worries you have. After all, we’re here to serve you!
