Different Ways to Boost Value

When preparing your ride for sale or trading in, there are a few easy steps you can take to ensure it is in good condition. Some of these can be seen below!

Car Wash

  • Cleaning and Detailing - If you’ve been driving a model for a while, it has likely become dirty on both the interior and the exterior. Whether you head to an auto wash or decide to do your own cleaning, you will want to take the time to clean these areas, so that it looks presentable during inspection and appraisal.
  • Catching Up on Service and Maintenance - You will also want to make sure your ride is up to date on any necessary maintenance. This will help ensure everything is in working order.
  • Collecting Service Documentation - For every service you’ve provided for your ride, it can be helpful to collect documentation. That way, there is visible proof that the model has been well-maintained and is in good condition.
  • Conducting Research with Trade-in Calculator - If you’re curious about your ride’s worth, you may also want to do some research. Using our Edmund’s Trade In tool, you can input some information regarding your ride and be presented with an estimate of its worth. Having this figure in mind could allow you to make sure that you maximize its value and get a fair offer.
