Are you considering trading in your vehicle? We are happy to offer top dollar for quality used cars to add to our inventory at Don’s Ford.

Clean It Up

It may seem trivial, but a clean car truly can make a difference. After all, it’s the best way for us to see the vehicle’s condition. Plus, of course, that means that there will be less time and work involved for us to get your vehicle ready to sell.

Bring Your Maintenance Records

Vehicles with a clean vehicle history report are almost always worth more. After all, they will look more attractive to a new buyer.

If you have maintenance records, it can help show that your vehicle has gotten the necessary service and maintenance it needs. It’s also important to bring records of any repairs your vehicle has had if it was involved in an accident.

Fix Up the Exterior

Fixing up the issues in your vehicle’s exterior can also help increase its value. Try to fix minor scratches and dings with a scratch removal kit. They are available at most auto supply stores, or you can purchase one online. You might even want to consider paint-less dent repair for major dents.

Complete Minor Repairs

You may also want to consider completing minor mechanical repairs that your vehicle needs. Of course, you want to ensure that the investment is worth it. You can utilize an online tool to get an estimate of your vehicle with its existing condition in mind. Then, alter the settings to like-new conditions to get an idea of how much your value could increase.  

We’d love to buy your used car. Visit our Ford dealership in Utica, NY to trade it in for top dollar today. We look forward to seeing you soon!
