While the UK car market has been growing substantially since a few years now, the used car market is already swelled to more than twice the size of the new one.
However, while you're looking and comparing attributes of a brand-new car, the salesperson is focused on the most important thing, and that is ensuring you get the best possible value for your trade-in. You can easily find part swap appraisal software online.

By following a few simple steps, you can guarantee the highest price possible for the car that you've owned for a while which will significantly lower the expense of buying a new car.
1. Clean your car. Making sure your vehicle is looking top-quality can enhance its value, and increase its value. In contrast, an unclean car looks unkept and the seller will refuse to offer you more than the minimum. It is worth spending the money to take your vehicle to a professional detailer.
Should you choose to wash it yourself, make sure you vacuum the upholstery and use an upholstery cleaning product to eliminate any stains or dirt from the headrests, seats, carpets, and the roof liner.
2. Take all personal belongings out. Taking everything personal out of your car will help it look less cluttered and well-maintained. The glove compartment, too, should be clear, except for the owner's manual and the vehicle registration.
Be sure to clean the trunk and leave only an extra tire, and tire iron. All bumper stickers and decals must also be removed as long as you can do it without damaging the paint.
