In a Pinch

use online tools If you’re planning to trade in your current car as soon as possible and just need a few quick tricks to boost its value, you’ll have a few options.

First, you’ll want to find the estimated value for your vehicle’s make, model, and year. You can use online tools to find this and get a baseline for what your vehicle is worth. With somewhere to aim, you can now get to work raising its value.

One of the easiest things you can do is simply clean the vehicle. Wash the exterior and try to buff out any small scratches and dents. Check the windows for any chips in the glass, too.

Inside, you’ll want to try to remove any stains, treat strange smells, and patch small holes or tears in the upholstery. Overall, the better your car looks, the more it will be worth.

Though, you should also try to take care of minor maintenance needs. If there are any dashboard lights on, try to resolve the issue. Simply refilling the tires to turn off the tire pressure indicator can really help you out.

When You Have Time

From minor needs, like oil changes, to more serious service like engine repairs, taking care of an issue as it arises will ensure that your vehicle is in good condition when you take it in for that trade assessment. If you keep a well-documented service record, this can also help to boost your vehicle’s value, as it proves your model was well-taken care of.
