Optimistic Modes To Prepare Your Pre-Owned Car For Trade-In


Buying a car is an exciting endeavor, regardless of if it’s your first or not. With the delay in number of new cars produced and shipped presently, the preowned market has become a great choice for owners to look into. You can also get value for money on pre-owned cars at 30 – 40% off from the dealer showroom price. 


Benefits Of Pre-Owned Cars

How can you know if a pre-owned car is the right choice for you? We outline some benefits of buying a preowned car.

1. Savings 

This is the first and most obvious benefit of buying a preowned car. Pre-owned cars come with a much lower price tag. The average cost for a new vehicle in the UAE is little over 100,000 AED, and considering that depreciation hits hard as soon as you drive it off the showroom floor is a no brainer.  


2. Security

Many quality pre-owned cars today come with a minimum one year warranty that covers key components. This means you’ll get extra protection if something breaks down later on. There are also fewer chances of experiencing depreciation.


3. No New Car Payments 

You can purchase pre-owned vehicles without a long-term commitment. This means that you can keep your budget flexible for other financial obligations.


4. Lower Insurance Rates 

You’ll likely see lower insurance premiums if you opt for a pre-owned car over a new one. You may even be able to cut your rates in half in some cases.


Preparing Your Car For Trade-In

Selling your car for an upgrade is a painful but necessary decision. Most people don’t do it themselves because they’re afraid they might not get good prices. They contact sales agents who can take away a huge chunk of your car sales earnings. 

If you want to sell your car for the best market rate, a few simple things can make a huge difference. 


Preparing Your Car For Trade-In


1. Set Budget

The first thing you have to decide is the kind of budget you want to sell your car. Feel free to look around our website for more information about fixing your budget. Our blog section also provides key information on used cars, which can help. 


2. Type Of Car You Need

You can choose the car you need without being constrained by the price tag. Select electric, ICE, coupe, exotic, SUV, and more from the Allied Motors showroom. Some cars might be expensive but are cheaper when you go for a preowned options with a low mileage. 


3. Fixing Small Issues

Before you put it on the market, ensure that you have solved the little niggles of your car. Does the clutch pedal stick a bit? Does the wiper blade drag across the windscreen? Now is the time to get all of those little things fixed to dictate a better price. 


4. Vehicle Maintenance

The most important thing about selling your used car is the engine,transmission and AC. Ensure that you have the maintenance record up to date and get it serviced  regularly. It  also helps to get it serviced before putting your car on the market.


5. Car Mileage & Model Year

The mileage on your car and model year is also important and is a huge deciding factor when it comes to the sale price. Low mileage cars and less than 3-4 years old, when maintained well, can go for high rates, so there’s no need to worry. Also, if you have a vintage car or exotic, mileage doesn’t matter much compared to its current state. 


6. Updated Service Records

Having updated records of your service and maintenance from authorized dealers for your car is critical. Having proper records can make a huge difference in your sales prices. If you have inconsistent records, it gives the buyer more room to bargain. 


7. Thorough Valeting

Something that you just can’t compromise on is a good, thorough valeting service for your car. Ensure you opt for a quality cleaning service that gets all the dirt and grime off your car inside and out. It’s hard to believe, but a clean car can considerably improve the buyer’s perception of the car. And this means even better-selling prices.
