How to Trade In Your Car

The first step is to simply use our trade-in car value calculator above to get an estimate of how much your vehicle is worth. You’ll need to provide information about the vehicle’s model year, make, model, trim level, and condition, and take stock of any accessories or customizations it may feature. Once you’ve received an estimated market value for your trade-in car:

  • Get in touch with our sales manager to schedule an official inspection and appraisal.
  • They’ll confirm all the details you’ve provided about the vehicle and make an offer.
  • From there, you can accept the offer in credit or take a check.
  • If you choose credit, make sure to apply for financing in advance to quicken the process.

To maximize your offer, make sure to clean your car out, and to make note of add-on features, as well as other selling points. For instance, if you kept up with your recommended maintenance intervals and have a service history report, don’t forget to bring it!

Benefits of Trading In Your Car

Now that you know how to trade in your car, let’s explore the benefits. If you’re in the market for a new or used vehicle, a trade-in car is a great way to raise a larger down payment. Not only does a larger down payment lower your monthly payments across your loan term, but it also puts you in a better position to bargain for a lower insurance rate! Of course, if you’re just looking to sell, you can rest assured that you’ll receive the same offer, either way!
