Your part exchange - Buying a Car

If you’ve got a car to part-exchange, you’ll want to get the best price. There are a few simple things to do in order to get the most money for your old car.

• Make sure you can find all of the paperwork, including the V5C registration document and current MoT certificate.

• Check the details on the paperwork are correct, and get them corrected if need be.

• Make sure your service history is up to date. If you have missing stamps or have lost the service book, speak to your garage about filling in the blanks. Your car will worth more if the history is intact.

• Find all the sets of keys, including central locking remotes.

• If the car needs any servicing or remedial work, investigate getting it carried out. However, it's possible this may cost more than the additional value your car will gain.

• Dealers are unlikely to be bothered by a dirty car but ensure that it isn't filthy or unhygienic.
