Should I service and MoT my car before I replace it?

I will be changing my 19 plate Toyota Corolla for a brand new one in early March 2024. My current car is due for an annual service and MoT on the 10th. Would it be prudent of me to have it serviced and MOT'd before taking delivery of the new one?
This largely depends on how you are moving on your current car. If you plan to sell privately then a complete history and fresh MoT will help its value, but if you are part-exchanging with the dealer and a price has already been agreed then this may not be necessary.
