Ready to trade in your old car for a newer one from Southwest Motors? Our dealership in Pueblo, Colorado, will take your trade-in and give you credit toward your next vehicle purchase. Here are some tips to help you get the most for your trade-in.
Clean it inside and out
You’ll make a better impression when you bring us your car if it looks attractive and isn’t soiled. A thorough interior detailing and exterior polishing can set you on the right foot for receiving a better starting offer.
Inspect and fix
If your car suffers from any minor cosmetic or performance problems that you could easily fix — such as replacing a bulb or painting over scratches — it’s a good idea to fix those yourself. Any issues small or large can reduce the value of your car, so do your best to boost its condition without overspending.
Know the value
It helps if you consult Kelley Blue Book for an idea of how much your old car is worth. While we can’t guarantee a trade-in credit that matches its actual value, we use that as a starting point to negotiate with you so you feel like you’re getting a fair offer.
Here at Southwest Motors, we sell a wide variety of pre-owned trucks, SUVs, and sedans. We’re always looking for more cars for our inventory and would be glad to give you an offer on your car, whether you choose to trade it in or sell it to us.
