Step 1: Price your Trade-in

Firstly, you'll want to figure out the value of your old vehicle that you plan to trade-in. You can do this by using online tools like Kelley Blue Book or the Value Your Trade feature on our website. Make sure you're as honest and accurate about its condition so you get the right estimate of your trade-in's worth. 


Step 2: Clean it Up

Next, you'll want to clean up your old vehicle's interior and exterior to present it at the best value possible. You don't have to put too much money into this step, but making sure all crucial parts are working properly and everything looks fresh is a great way to boost the value of your trade-in, which means more money towards your new Volvo!
