Part-exchanging your vehicle is the most popular method of getting yourself into a newer vehicle.
Here’s a hassle-free guide to part-exchanging…
What is Part-Exchange?
To put it simply, part-exchanging means using the value of your current vehicle to go towards the cost of a new one. For example, your current vehicle is valued at £8,000, and the vehicle you wish to purchase is priced at £12,000. That means you only need to pay £4,000 towards the new one, otherwise known as “price to change.”

Can I part-exchange my vehicle?

What are the advantages of part-exchanging my vehicle?
The main advantage of part-exchanging your vehicle is convenience. it’s as quick and simple! What’s more, you can part-exchange your vehicle even if you have outstanding finance, which you can’t do if selling privately (you have to clear any outstanding finance if you wish to sell privately).
What are the disadvantages of part-exchanging my car?
The main disadvantage of part-exchanging is you might not get as much for your old vehicle as if you sold it privately. Of course, with selling privately comes the hassle of time-wasters and chancers trying to get it as cheaply as possible. But then, there’s always car buying services that will buy it off you, no quibbles. However, it’s very rare that you will get a better valuation from these services than just part-exchanging, especially with us.
