How to maximise your part exchange value?
Trade-in value is decided by a few key factors, such as:
Year – You’re more likely to get a better valuation for a newer vehicle, the make and model will also determine this. If your vehicle sells better than others, then expect this to be reflected in the value of your part-exchange.
Mileage – The higher the mileage, the lower the value of your trade in price. As a general rule of thumb, if your vehicle exceeds the yearly average for its manufacturing year then it’s likely that the return price will be lower.
Condition – Vehicles hat have any interior/exterior cosmetic damage and mechanical faults will have a significant difference in its value. To avoid this, keep your vehicles in a good condition, have regular service intervals and replace any damaged or worn parts.
Owner & Service History – Strong service history can help you gain up to 20% more in trade in value as it showcases the vehicle has been kept to good standard of maintenance. In theory, this suggests that there are less things that are likely to go wrong with the vehicle. Similarly, the same rule applies to vehicle ownership; fewer ownership changes indicate the vehicle is in good running order and is likely to have been kept in better condition.

Settle Outstanding Finance
There can be a lot of confusion surrounding whether you can trade in a van that has outstanding finance, and whether this has an effect on your financial commitment to purchasing a new vehicle.
Depending on the type of finance option used, it’s important to remember that ownership of the vehicle isn’t assumed until the final payment has been made. In order to end your current agreement to purchase a new van, a settlement figure will need to be supplied by your lender.
Here at Vanaways we will settle any outstanding finance you may have on your old van. If you have any equity left from the settlement, this can be used towards your deposit with us for a new van.
