If you're looking to upgrade your current ride, then you may be wondering how to boost your car's trade-in value. Luckily, the team at Sam Pack's Five Star Subaru is here to give our friends from all around Grapevine, Fort Worth, and Dallas, Texas, the inside scoop.

Let's dive in!

Do Your Research

When you're ready to start thinking about trading in your car, the first thing you'll want to do is start researching. Use everything from dealership tools to third-party resources like Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds to get an estimated value of what your car is worth.

You can view what people traded similar cars for, but keep in mind that every vehicle is different and there are various factors determining value. This research is more to just give you a starting off point.

Schedule a Multi-Point Inspection

Since auto service is a huge determining factor in the value of a car, you may want to schedule a multi-point inspection. This service paints a clear picture of what components may be old and worn out in your car. You can then decide to replace these parts to help boost the value of your ride.

The best part is we offer a service center with a cozy waiting room. So, you can grab a cinnamon roll and Caffé Latte at Buon Giorno on your way in and then sit down with a good book while we look over your vehicle.

Use Trade-In Tools To Compare

Whether you're hauling a boat down to Lake Ray Hubbard or heading out of town to Wichita Falls for a weekend getaway, you live an adventurous lifestyle that doesn't stop for anything. Therefore, you'll want to make use of online trade-in tools.

While you're indulging in a relaxing cup at Seated Tea in the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, you can also fill out some information on your ride. All you'll need is your VIN and a few photos handy, and you'll be ready to get started from anywhere!

This tool provides you with an expected value of your trade, so you can visit the dealership fully prepared or make the necessary repairs you'd want to boost the value.

Visit the Car Wash

 In addition to performing any repairs needed to get your car in peak shape, you'll also want to make sure it shines. You're selling your car to the dealership, so you want it to look its best. Swing on by Tommy's Express® Car Wash or Wash Brother Car Wash to get the exterior nice and clean.

You'll also want to vacuum out the interior to ensure your ride is putting its best foot forward.
