When you’re in the process of buying a new car, sometimes the logistics can be tricky. It’s not uncommon to be ready to ditch your old car, unable to find a buyer for it, and you need the money from the sale to finance a replacement. It’s an issue faced by many that can be solved by trading your car in to a dealer, which comes with a range of other benefits you may not have thought of before. Find out why it is a great option to trade in cars in Auckland below.

1. Quick process

When you’re selling on your own, waiting for the right buyer to come along can be frustrating to say the least. It can take weeks, or even months, which is not ideal if you’re itching to get on and find something new. With a dealership trade-in, you can part ways with your car and pick up your new one in a flash. All it comes down to is having a car in mind at the dealership that you’re keen to trade for. Once that’s sorted, the deal can be done in a day.

2. Only deal with one person

When you sell your car privately, you need to be prepared to spend a LOT of time and effort to do so. You’ll likely be bombarded with calls from potential buyers night and day, have to field low offers, and accommodate those wanting a test drive at inconvenient times. When you trade-in, this whole part of the process is erased. You deal with one person, in one place, who is invested in making the journey easy and hassle free.

3. Reducing costs

Getting a great deal on a car is always good, and you can make it even better by trading in! The value of your current car is taken off the sale price of the new one, which makes it that bit easier to get your hands on a new set of wheels. Alternatively, you could use the money as your down payment for the upgraded car. You will also get to dodge the advertising fees that come with listing a car yourself, saving you that extra little bit of cash.

4. More finance options

Trading in is especially great if you need car finance, as it will reduce the amount you need to borrow. Don’t want to wait until you find a new car to get finance sorted? We make it easy by offering pre-approved car finance in Auckland. This way, you can head into the dealership to find your dream car confident that the finance you need has already been given the go ahead.

5. Maintenance is taken care of by the dealer

Does your car have a few scratches or dings? No time or energy to fix these issues before selling? A trade-in is a good option in this case, as the dealership will likely be happy to take your car as is. Once you hand over the keys these small maintenance jobs become the dealer’s responsibility, so you won’t have to worry about spending money on your old car, which you may not get back in the sale price.
