Having your eyes on a newer Hyundai vehicle would mean deciding to trade-in your current Hyundai vehicle. When successfully traded in, some cash will be added to get you the newer Hyundai vehicle you have your sights on. Similar to the football/soccer transfer market deals which you hear about, this is often known as a Vehicle + Cash deal. How do you prepare for swapping your current Hyundai car and adding some cash to get a newer Hyundai vehicle?
1. Be candid about any issues your Hyundai car has ever experienced and especially, issues it is currently experiencing. Telling half-truths about the actual status of your vehicle will get you a returned car and no deal because test drives, professional mechanic checks and vehicle history reports are for verifying if your car drives just the way you claim it does.
2. Today’s auto-market value for your car cannot be the auto-market value for your car when you bought it 3 years ago or even some months ago. Hence, brush up on what the market value is in order to avoid overstating or understating the value; this is what prudence entails. You can easily have an appraisal done at our Hicksville dealership but if you prefer going the online appraisal route, Copart.com and Kbb.com are excellent and trusted sources for price checks based on the model and year of your Hyundai vehicle.
3. Conduct minor repairs.
4. Avoid the major repairs because at the end of the day, you would have possibly spent thousands of dollars on them which means that the value of your trade-in takes a dive when the sale is over.
5. Clean every nook and cranny of your vehicle. Use lint-free cloth and a soft detergent type to clean the floors and the upholstery; vacuum the areas of the car where too much dirt has accumulated or where it is difficult to clean with a cleaning cloth; wash the windows with the right washing liquid; clean the engine compartment and the trunk as well. And remember to wax the chassis.
