Part Exchange / Trade-In

Part exchanging at Carbase is a fuss-free way to put the value of your current car towards the cost of your new vehicle. Part exchanging your old car is a great way to keep the cost of your next used car as low as possible. 


At Carbase, we have a simple part exchange process to help you use your old car's value to lower the cost of your next car. This will not only reduce the cost of your next used vehicle, but it could help lower your monthly repayments if you choose to take out finance.

When you see a vehicle you like on our website, simply click the part exchange button, fill in your reg and mileage, and it will automatically calculate the estimated monthly finance payments if you were to trade in your car.

The valuation you receive from the Carbase team will be fair, transparent and fully explained. Your valuation will be based on your vehicle's condition and age along with the current market conditions and the specification of your vehicle. 

How much will I receive for a part exchange?

The amount you will receive for part exchange depends on several factors, such as:

- The age of your vehicle
