Reasons to Trade-In Your Vehicle | Eau Claire, WI

By Auto Ashley | Posted in Technology, Used Vehicles on Thursday, March 23rd, 2017 at 6:00 AM
Trade-In

Are you thinking about whether or not you should trade-in your vehicle?  Want new features in a vehicle?  Want to have the new car smell?  Just ready for something different?  Well, it is time to start thinking about trading-in!

Save yourself some time and trade-in here at Ken Vance Motors, where we make it easy for you to understand the benefits of trading-in.  When you are ready to purchase your new vehicle, you don’t have to wait until you sell the other, you can trade-in and get the value of your current vehicle directly applied to your new purchase.  Here are some reasons you don’t always think about when making the decision to trade-in:

Reasons to Trade-In

  • Avoid the Hassle.  When you sell your car on your own, it requires responding to a lot of calls and emails about the vehicle.  Then on top of that, you have to show the car and then allow people to test drive.  We want your car buying experience as stress-free as possible.
  • Value now.  Use the value of your trade and apply it directly to your new vehicle purchase.  Don’t wait the months it could take to sell your car on your own.
  • Upgrade Vehicle. Need the convenience of the latest technology?  Trade-in your outdated vehicle and get into a new one.  We make the process easy, so that you can get that heated steering wheel, seat warmers, or hands-free bluetooth speaker that you are looking for.  If you are after something different, don’t let the fear of struggling to find someone to buy it get in the way and make the trade.
  • Tax Savings.  In Wisconsin, it is required that sales tax be paid only on the difference between the price of your trade-in and the new vehicle you are buying, not the full price of the new car you bought.  This could mean a big savings on the tax you will pay on your new vehicle. However, this tax benefit does not apply if you sell your old vehicle yourself.

Stop at Ken Vance Motors and we will take a look at your vehicle.  Interested in finding out more before you stop-in, click here and fill out the form.  We hope to see you soon at Ken Vance Motors.
