If you want to buy or lease a 2018 Jeep® Grand Cherokee or RAM 1500, but are concerned about being able to afford a new vehicle, you may be overlooking a valuable asset that can make your upcoming transaction more affordable. And that asset is your current vehicle.

As central Florida Jeep dealers near Orlando, we work with drivers who want to trade in their cars every day. Trading in your current automobile is a smart way to make buying or leasing a new vehicle more affordable in many instances.

There are some things you should do to ensure you get as much money as possible for your current vehicle. You need to gather all the paperwork you’ll need to make a deal, for instance. This paperwork includes your automobile’s registration, title, and maintenance records. If you don’t have your car’s title because you still have an outstanding loan, you’ll need to provide the contact information for the financial institution that holds your automobile’s title.

You should make sure your car is clean on the inside and outside, too. As you clean your vehicle, be sure you remove all your personal belongings. You should put any accessories your car came with back in your vehicle as well, such as your spare tire and your navigation system’s SD card or DVD. If you have a second set of keys for your automobile, make sure you bring them with you when you trade your car in.

It’s advisable to top off your vehicle’s fluids before you trade your car in. If you need windshield wiper fluid, brake fluid, or oil, you can find the supplies you need in our Jeep parts center near Apopka, FL.
