Apart exchange allows you to put the value of your old vehicle towards the cost of your new one and if you’re thinking of purchasing your next vehicle on finance, a part exchange could cover your deposit and even reduce your monthly payments. At Old Smithy Garage we accept any vehicle as part exchange, regardless of how old and what condition the vehicle is in.
How much you can get for your car depends on a number of factors. The make and model are probably the key ones – some brands and cars are more desirable than others, therefore they hold on to more of their value and command a higher price.
The age and mileage will also have a big affect on how much your part-exchange car is worth. The older the car and the higher the mileage, generally the lower the valuation. Equally important is your car’s condition – scuffed alloy wheels and bumps and scratches will lower the value of your car, because we’ll need to sort them before we move it on again.
Lastly, have all your paperwork in order – a taxed car with a full service history and a valid MOT certificate is worth more than a similar car without. Make sure you also have your car’s registration certificate – called the V5C – to hand.
