If you’re thinking about trading in your car, you probably want to be sure that you’re getting the most money that you can for it. Is there actually a best time to trade in a used car? We’ve handled a lot of trade-ins here at B&B Automotive, so this is what we think drivers need to know.
When You Should Trade In
Trading in your car can be done at any time, but it may be more beneficial to trade it in before certain milestones. Do you have a warranty on your vehicle? Trading in your car while it has warranty coverage can sometimes net you more money.
Trading in your car before it hits the 100,000-mile mark can also be a good idea. Modern cars are built to last and can go far beyond 100,000 miles, but this particular milestone can be a big deal to some buyers.
Finally, trading in your car during the first half of the year is often a good idea. In the second half of the year, new vehicles from a new model year start arriving. That makes your car seem like it’s one year older.
Which Cars Hold Their Value Best
All cars drop in value, or depreciate, over time, but some models hold their value better than others. If you drive a more specialized type of vehicle, like a high-performance car or a model equipped for off-roading, it might have more value on the pre-owned car market.
