Should I trade-in or sell my VW Polo?

I am looking to get rid of a 2011 Volkswagen Polo. I have gotten a quote from the garage, but I am unsure whether I should sell back to them or try and sell privately as I feel they did not give me the best offer.

Hi Katy,

Well, the value of your car will depend on its condition and service history, and don’t forget that trade-in value is usually €1,500 to €2,000 less than retail value. A 2011 Polo is going to be worth around €6,500 to €7,000 on sale, so around €5,000 as a trade-in.
