Cash in on part-exchange deals this March!Back

At Trusted Dealers we like to make sure that our customers get the best deals possible on new and used cars, which is why we’re offering you the chance to get your hands on some mega deals during the next month.

With the new 13 plate just released on 1 March 2013, there has never been a better time to cash in on some great car-buying opportunities.

For many buyers, the opportunity to buy a new 13 registration plate will be a tempting one, which is why the Trusted Dealers are predicting a rise in part-exchange vehicles on the forecourts, available to purchase at highly competitive prices.

Plenty of buyers will be part-exchanging their used vehicles in order to drive away in a new 13 plate car, so if you are looking for a fantastic deal on a used or second-hand car, this is a great time to head to your nearest Trusted Dealer.

If you are thinking about buying a used car, below are some key points to remember to make sure that you make the right purchasing choice:

  1. Consider the vehicle’s residual value – this is the future value of a car taking into account its depreciation over a number of years. Opting for popular makes such as Ford, Volkswagen or BMW will ensure that your second-hand car’s residual value remains strong and will save you cash when it comes to selling your vehicle on.
  2. Consider the features offered – a car with plenty of equipment and safety features as standard is likely to sell better in the future, so it is well worth considering cars which offer features such as air-conditioning, electric windows, ISOFIX points, a CD player with AUX-in and more, to ensure it retains its value in years to come.
  3. Always test drive the car – it is very important to test drive the car you are considering before your make a decision. Not only is it a good opportunity to get a realistic feel for how the car drives, it is also an ideal time to have some one-on-one time with your sales advisor and ask any additional questions.
  4. Make sure the car has been checked – any used car you purchase must have a HPI or Experian check to ensure it hasn’t been lost, stolen or accrued outstanding finance. At Trusted Dealers we offer all of our customers our 10 Points of Difference promise which guarantees buyers leave the forecourt with added peace of mind.
