You’ve probably seen a lot of coverage in the news about inflation in Houston. One of the fastest accelerating sectors of the economy is used cars, so is now a good time to sell a car? It certainly is! “Should I sell my car to a dealer?” is probably a question you’re asking, and we have to say, the answer is “yes” if you’re looking for a great price for your used car. Do you need to know how to get a car ready to sell? Baytown Hyundai covers everything you need to know about getting your trade-in estimate and selling your used vehicle in Baytown. 

Why There’s a Chip Shortage & What This Means for You

Lots of recent news reports have been talking about a shortage of computer chips. Why is there a chip shortage? Due to COVID, the supply chains of electronics manufacturers have slowed down despite demand being at an all-time high. This translates to a chip shortage, and as a result, to higher used car values for available vehicles on the market.

Should I Sell My Car to a Dealer?

There are several reasons you should consider selling to Baytown Hyundai when preparing to sell your used car. For one, it saves you a trip if you get your car sold and your next one bought from the same place. In addition, you can avoid the hassle of a private party sale and having to haggle on prices. What’s more, you can count on Baytown Hyundai to give you an accurate valuation based on the finest objective measures of a car’s value.

How to Get a Car Ready to Sell

Ready to sell your car? Here’s how to get a car ready to sell:

  1. Be sure that you’re completely up to date on your car’s maintenance. That includes an oil change, tire rotation, wheel balancing and alignment, and the rest. Remember that Baytown Hyundai can cover your basic service needs or any service problem you may face.
  2. Get the car detailed by a professional to make sure it’s fully clean. The condition of your car’s interior will affect its valuation.
