What is part exchange?

To part exchange cars, is when you trade in your car for another, by offsetting the value of the original car against the price of the new one. If the new car you’re going for has a lower value than the car you are trading in, the dealer will pay you back the remaining balance.

To find out the part exchange value of your car, simply submit your REG number below:
