Your guide to part exchange

Trading in your car is quick, easy and totally faff-free with cinch

What is part exchange?

Part exchange is a way of using the value in your current car towards the cost of your next one.

We'll refer to your car as a 'part-ex' – so you know the difference between the one you're buying and the one you're trading in.
