Are you looking to clear up space in your driveway for your next Lincoln? Maybe you no longer need your current set of wheels? There are several reasons you may be looking to hand off your current car, and you might be wondering whether you should trade it in or sell it.

At Fred Beans Lincoln, we've put together this handy comparison for Chalfont, Doylestown, and Warminster, Pennsylvania, drivers curious about trading in vs. selling their car. Read through the benefits of each, then contact our team to trade in or sell your car with us today!

Should I Trade In or Sell My Car?

Trade in vs Sell When you choose to trade in or sell your car with us, there are many benefits to both options. Still, there are a few differences between the two that are important to go over.

Selling your car is a good option for drivers who have no need for their current car. At our dealership, we make the selling process simple: You bring us your car, and we make you an offer. Then, your old car is off your hands, and you make some cash, too.

For drivers looking to upgrade their current set of wheels, a trade-in is a good option. By trading in your current car with us, you can put the value of that car towards your new one. That way, you're clearing up that driveway space and contributing to the cost of your new car, too.

How Can I Trade In or Sell My Car?

Whether you trade in or sell your car, a great first step is to get an idea of what your current car is worth. Using our Value Your Trade tool, enter some information about your car-such as the make, model, year, and mileage-to receive an estimate.

If you're trading in your car, you'll want to research and test drive the model you're planning to trade your old car in for. A member of our team will inspect your old set of wheels, and our finance center can help you complete the trade-in paperwork once we've given you an offer. Soon enough, you'll be behind the wheel of your new ride!

If you're selling your car with us, however, you won't need to research and test drive our available models. Instead, a member of our team will inspect your vehicle, and then we can make you an offer.

How Can I Boost My Car's Value?

Before bringing your vehicle to our dealership, there are a few things you can do to help boost your car's value. A car that looks and runs its best will likely have a higher value.

Some things you can do to prepare your car for inspection include:

  • Cleaning it inside and out (have it detailed if possible)
  • Take care of any dents, scratches, or marks
  • Repair any old or broken parts

Timing and inventory are other factors to consider when trading in or selling your car. Your car may have a higher value when it's a busy car-buying period, like holidays or the start of a new year.
