Would you sell your first car to buy a new one?

I am running a water refilling station and I am thinking sincerely if I will sell my first car which is still on mortgage with a bank. I only have 17 months left to have it fully paid. The thing is, I am thinking of trading in this car to buy a box type car for delivery purposes with regards to my business. I am having confusions and a bit of sadness if ever I will let it go. What do you think? Are you going to trade-in your first car to have a delivery van for your business? Will you b e practical or sentimental?

You have to think practically! If you are fortunate enough to have a thriving business and the truck or larger car would make it grow, go ahead if the payments would not be more than you are paying right now. On the other hand, could you get a trailer and hitch it to your car? You may just be able to attach a hitch to the car and use a trailer to haul your goods. They even have trailers that are steel mesh and you can lock them during your delivery stops. Think creatively!

Pay the loan off of your current car. Becareful do you don't wanna end up going upside down on your loan, by trading it in for a new car. Keep your car in excellent shape in the meantime.
