Better than Trade-In: the discount on your new boat or vehicle for you instead of for the seller!
- You can earn the margin that the dealer/seller calculates in your trade-in value (handling, profit):
- If you do not trade in but outsource sales to Umecom, your boat or vehicle will yield approximately 10% more.
- If the dealer's margin (%) on your boat or car is equal/higher, then our brokerage fee (%): outsource:
- Outsourcing is then/so sensible if your vehicle or vessel resp. will yield at least 5 or 10 thousand euros.
- No cure no pay. If the lower limit is not met, the assignment will lapse (Umecom cost risk).
- If you cannot live without a car (or boat), you should be able to own 2 (for a short time).
Suppose you are considering a different car. If it is purchased from a car company or brand dealer, trade-in is as efficient. Or not? Of course, if it is necessary for you to quickly get rid of the trade-in car. But that's the only advantage! And, the trade-in value also seems quite favorable. But, is that true?
It is often overlooked that the trade-in value presented actually consists of a discount on the new car and the purchase price paid for your car. And it won't be very high: costs must be covered to tidy up, advertise and sell your car. And there is still something to be earned on the trade-in car.
Taking this into account, selling yourself is always more interesting and will yield you more (provided, of course, that a discount is negotiated on the new car). And here again applies; if you don't feel like it or don't have the space/time for it, Umecom is the 'next best thing' for your sales. Even minus our commission. Your boat/vehicle yields approx. 10% more!
(Click for) a calculation example:
Suppose you have a new car in mind with a price of € 35,000. The dealer makes you an offer, in which you trade in and have to pay an additional €22,000. Ostensibly, you get $13,000 back for your car. However, if you buy the new car without a trade-in, you will ask for a discount and you can probably purchase the new car for €32,500.
In other words, the dealer made you a proposal, whereby the trade-in car only yields you € 10,500. And, that's the price for which he still has to 'process' your car and earn some money on it; your trade-in car will be advertised/sold for €12,500-13,500, so you will largely be giving away the discount on your new car to the dealer!
Suppose you outsource sales to Umecom. We agree on a lower limit of €12,000, but sell your car for €12,500. In the yield scale of 10,000-25,000 euros, we charge 5% commission. Your car will yield you (gross) €11,875, which is net (settlement costs) approx. €11,725. Your car will yield €1,225 more (= approx. 10%)!
