Get the Best Trade-in Value for Your Used Cars at KIA Richmond

There a number of factors that will determine what a dealer is able to offer you for your trade-in. 

These include

- Number of similar vehicles in the market 
- Overall market conditions
- Condition of the vehicle. This includes km, interior and exterior condition (appearance, odor, etc.), mechanical condition and tires.
- Vehicle history: service history  & accidents

 You can't control the market but presenting your vehicle in the best possible condition will help you receive the best possible offer. Here's what we recommend:


1. CLEAN YOUR VEHICLE INSIDE AND OUT. 

An important step in this process should be removing all personal belongings from the car. You may also want to deal with minor dings and scratches.


2. SERVICE YOUR VEHICLE. 

Is your car or truck overdue for an oil & filter change? Are fluids running low? Are the tires and brakes in good shape?  Just like your service records and the visual presentation, these details say a lot about how well your automobile has been maintained.


3. PROVIDE SERVICE RECORDS 

Detailed service records tell us that you've taken good care of your vehicle.


4. PROVIDE A CARPROOF REPORT 

A CarProof report outlines a history of insurance (accident) claims, lets us know about any liens on the car and tells us where the vehicle originated. Getting a CarProof before YOU purchase a used vehicle is recommended. At Land Rover Calgary we provide CarProofs, on request, for all of our used vehicles.


FIRST IMPRESSIONS 

 Are important and there's no such thing as a second first impression! Also, the less time and money that we have to put into your vehicle in order to sell it the more money we'll be able to offer you.
