We know the car business inside and out and are here to help. Here are some of our best tips to beat car depreciation and get the most out of your trade-in.

Start with A Used Car

Nothing loses value more quickly than a brand-new car once it leaves the lot. Used cars, however, have already been through that first giant step of depreciation and hold their value for much longer. You will have a better idea of what you are purchasing if you buy your used car from a dealership. They perform a rigorous inspection before any car hits their sales lot and access its car history.

Stay Mainstream

A vehicle purchase is one of the few buying decisions in life where reselling is virtually guaranteed. It would help if you considered what others would think of your car when selling. Popular models are popular for a reason. They are a known product with a history of dependability and style that appeals to many buyers, the more popular the model, the higher its dollar value is years down the road.

Protect Your Purchase

Nothing guarantees trust in a buyer quite like used car warranties. The buyer knows that the car was well maintained while in your possession. Peace of mind while you own the vehicle is a benefit as well. Whether selling your vehicle to a private buyer or trading it in, a warranty is a great way to add lasting value.

Limit Wear and Tear

Some factors in driving a car, such as kilometres travelled, can be controlled only so much. Your interior and exterior, however, can be protected from showing signs of use. Wrap the hood, front bumper, and door edges with protective film and add underbody protectants to keep your paint fresh and prevent rust damage. Custom floor mats will keep your flooring from getting worn and stained from use. Every year you keep up your car equals a higher sales value.
