Are you in the market for a new car? You’re probably gearing up for a long day at the dealership. Everyone knows what a hassle it can be to search through all the cars on the lot, listen to the sales pitch of the bloke who follows you around while you’re searching for the vehicle you want, and then waiting for hours while they decide whether or not to approve you for a car loan.

Oh wait! You forgot the most important part: begging for a decent trade-in offer on the car you already own. Using a car broker can help you to avoid these very common and costly mistakes.

Not Researching Its Value

The car dealership is going to do its research before making an offer on your car, how much research did you do before you brought it in? Car dealerships are in the business of making a profit, so you can be sure that anything they offer you has a comfortable profit margin built in for them. If you don’t know what the true value of your used car is, you’re probably going to take an offer that’s far too low.

Visiting One Dealership

Another mistake many people make is limiting their search for an attractive trade-in offer to one dealership. Sure, it takes a lot of time and effort to travel around to multiple dealerships, but if you don’t, how can you be sure you’re getting a competitive offer?
