If you are in the market for your next vehicle, and want to trade in your current vehicle, Mark’s Auto Sales can help.

The Advantages of Used Car Trade In at Mark’s Auto Sales

Let’s face it, while selling your car “for sale by owner” may allow you to maximize the selling price, it comes with its own list of costs and disadvantages. Here’s how trading your car in at Mark’s Auto Sales will help save you time and effort.

  1. Less Sales Tax – When you trade in your vehicle, it reduces the total amount of sales tax that will be collected for your next vehicle. Sales tax is calculated on the net selling price, which is the sales price minus trade in value.
  2. Save the pain of FSBO/Craigslist – Selling a vehicle on your own comes with its own list of challenges. If you have someone like a friend, coworker or neighbor that wants to purchase your vehicle from you, wonderful. However, many opt to trade in a vehicle to avoid setting test drives with complete strangers, selecting meeting spots, and handling / verifying the authenticity of the buyers’ cash.
  3. Put money you would spend reconditioning the vehicle towards your new vehicle – If your vehicle needs a few things fixed and replaced, in order to sell it, you may choose to replace those items; replace worn tires, replace a broken windshield, perform the brake maintenance that is long overdue, etc. However, these expenditures aren’t going to significantly increase the value of the used car trade in.  Those repairs and replacements could easily cost you $1500-$2000, but would not cost the dealer as much to recondition on a trade in.  That money could make a significant addition to your down payment.  Between your down payment and trade in, you can significantly reduce the total amount you need to finance for your next vehicle.
