Whilst you might initially shy away from part exchanging your car, there are many benefits of doing so. Of course, by part exchanging a car you might end up getting slightly less than the car is worth as those you are exchanging with will have to ensure that they do not lose out on the deal, but with all the benefits that you get from a part exchange it may still be very much worth doing.
Not only will you remove the cost of advertising your car and the commission you might have to pay if you sell your car through certain channels, but you will also remove the lengthy wait that will accompany the process of selling a car. This will also mean that you won’t have to spend time cleaning and preening the car each and every time someone wishes to look at it, and that you will also remove the need to accompany test drives and spend awkward moments haggling with those who might wish to take your car from you for next to nothing.
In turn, receiving slightly less than professional car valuations might value your car at may even end up leaving you with more money overall as you remove the fees associated with selling a car as well as the cost of your own time trying to do so.
The biggest benefit of course will be the ability to get the car you want straight away rather than having to wait weeks or months before you have the cash to get the car. Furthermore, by waiting you may find that the great deal you were looking at has expired or that the car you really wanted is no longer available nearby.
So long as you get a free car valuation and do not let dealers take you for a ride, part exchange may be the best way to get the car you want, quickly and cost-effectively, and it may well even save you money in the long run.
