Drivers who have a used Ford to sell probably want to make sure that they’re getting the most possible money for it. If you’ve found a new vehicle you love here at Folsom Lake Ford and plan to sell your current vehicle, our tips can help you get the most out of your current car so that you can pay for a new one.

Keeping Your Vehicle in Top Shape

If you ever plan to sell your vehicle, keeping it in top shape should be your first priority. If you properly maintain your vehicle, avoid mechanical problems, and keep your car looking nice and clean, that will help you sell it for the most you possibly can when you’re upgrading to a new vehicle.

Selling on Your Own or Trading it In

When it’s time to get rid of your vehicle, you might want to sell it on your own. After all, that’s a buyer paying you for a vehicle with no middleman to speak of. However, you should keep in mind that selling your car on your own can be an annoying endeavor. Some buyers aren’t serious, others will try to negotiate you down. On top of that, you’ll probably end up spending a lot of time dealing with the sale of your vehicle, and time is valuable too.

The other option is trading it in. You can use our online form to value your trade and we’ll finalize your offer when we see your used car for ourselves. You get a fair amount of money for your vehicle, and you can turn around and put that cash right towards a new Ford model!
