Trading in your old vehicle can be a nerve-wracking experience. How do you know if you’re getting a square deal or if you’re cruising for a bruising rip-off? Truth be told, when it comes to trade-ins, you’re largely at the mercy of the dealer to whom you’re selling it. If you’re not a seasoned deal-maker or bargain-driver, this can be an unpleasant and stressful episode on your journey to an eventual new vehicle. At Southgate Volkswagen, we seek to take the suck out of the trade-in process and leave customers feeling satisfied that they’ve walked away with receiving maximum value for their vehicle. That makes us feel good too, and it highlight our commitment to honesty and fairness in dealing with our community and maintaining their confidence in us.
Trade-Ins: an overview
Trade-in values are lower than the retail asking price because they reflect vehicle reconditioning, repairs, transport, interest charges, and/or commissions necessary to sell a trade-in vehicle. Because of this, we urge customers to view asking prices as a rough guide only. Your vehicle’s history (including accident reports, documented service and maintenance records, out of province status, cosmetic requirements, and mechanical repairs) will also influence the assessment of your vehicle that’ll be reflected in its trade-in value.
