Time 6 years ago

WHEN it comes to selling a car, the plan for most car owners is simple; they want to sell for as much as they can, within the shortest time possible.

That’s one of the less surprising facts contained in Auto Trader’s February 2016 Market Report, published today.

However, over a third (35 per cent) of consumers claim that when it comes to a part-exchange deal, they want to receive the best price possible, regardless of how long it takes.

The smallest percentage of consumers (19 per cent), claimed price wasn’t too important and convenience was the biggest factor.
