5 Reasons for Why You Should Part Exchange Your Car

Top 5 Reasons To Part-Ex Rather Than Sell Privately

Are you looking to upgrade to a new car and get some money for your old one? You may be asking yourself “Should I sell my car privately or part exchange?". At Autozone and Car Credit Now, we offer part exchanges in Barnsley, which we believe is the best method of selling your old motor and we will explain the 5 main reasons why in this article.

  1. It is much quicker: From researching how much to advertise your vehicle for to taking photos and arranging viewings, there are a lot of steps involved in a private sale, which can make it a very time-consuming process overall. You may also be waiting a while for a buyer who is prepared to make a sensible offer. If you have a popular model in excellent condition listed at a low price you may get a lot of interest, but this is not always the case. On the other hand, part-exchanging is rapid. You could get a valuation today and then all you’d need to do is drive your vehicle to the dealership and swap your old car for your new one.
  2. It is easier: As mentioned in the previous point, there are a lot of different stages involved in a private sale which isn’t just time-consuming but it is also work that isn’t necessary when you part exchange. You won’t need to take photos from every angle and write up vehicle descriptions and figure out how various advertising platforms work. Trading in your car at a dealership is a far less stressful experience.
  3. You won’t have to be without a vehicle at any point: If you decide to sell your car privately, you can either buy your new car straight away before you’ve sold the old one or you can wait until the sale has gone through, which means that you may end up without a car or with two at once. Neither of these options is ideal as you will either need to find space to park two cars and you will be paying tax and insurance for both while you wait for your vehicle to be bought, or you will temporarily need to find an alternative method of transportation while you wait for your new car. When you part exchange, however, you will drive your car to the dealership and drive home in your new one so there won’t be any waiting period in between.
  4. You won’t be dealing with strangers: When you part exchange in Barnsley with Autozone and Car Credit Now, you will be taken care of by our friendly and dedicated team of professionals. While there is an element of risk involved with a private sale, our dealership is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and any payment made to or from us will be secure, with a receipt provided.
  5. The paperwork will be done for you: If you sell your car privately, it is your responsibility to inform the DVLA of the transfer of vehicle ownership and to complete the necessary paperwork, but at Autozone, we will handle all of this for you!
