When trading in your old car for a different one you will want to get the best deal that you can for your old car. This means that you will want to have your old car looking as slick as possible, so you will need to get it looking as-new, or as close as you can to it. The more work you put in to getting it looking great will be money in the bank for you in the form of the trade-in figure, so it’s worth taking the time to pay attention to the fine details. Here are some things to do to make sure that your car is looking at its best.
For the inside of your car you will want to pay extra attention to detail. If you can afford it, it’s a really good idea to get it professionally detailed. This means that they will vacuum it, clean the windows, wipe all the surfaces, apply Armor All to the front dash, and generally get it looking as close to a new car as it can be. It’s amazing how much difference it makes to do the inside of your car thoroughly!
While you are at it, it’s really important to give the car a really good clean on the outside as well. Make sure you pay attention to all the small areas such as the mirrors, around the undersides and the wheels. There is no point having a great looking car on the inside and having left parts out of the outside.
As best you can, replace any small broken parts such as screws that are missing on the sun visor, buttons that might have fallen off or broken, fuses and make sure that the seat belts are all in good condition. You may find that you can get small parts from the wreckers at a cheaper cost than if you went to the cars manufacturer. Sometimes it can be these small things that make a difference as to how someone views your car. Paying attention to detail in the small areas shows that you are a person who looks after things, and will make a good impression on the evaluation of the whole car.
If there are any small dents on your car it’s a good idea to try and have them smoothed out before you try and trade it in. These small dents, though insignificant to the running of the vehicle could lose you a lot of money at the trade-in. It is quite costly to have them fixed by a panel beater, but there are companies that can massage the smaller dents out, which will have your car back to looking great in next to no time, and cost a lot less!
If there are any small ‘stars’ of cracks in the windscreen it’s a really good idea to have them repaired by a glass specialist. Small cracks or ‘stars’ often turn into larger cracks so it’s a really good idea to get them removed. For info about loans for your new car check out .
