The Steps to Value and Sell Your Trade-in Car

The first step of how to trade in your car is to use our tool above to get a near-accurate market-based estimate of how much it’s worth. To value your trade-in car, simply fill out the fields for each prompt, providing our trade-in car calculator with the year, make, model, and color of your vehicle, as well as mention of any accessories or customizations it features. Also, provide us with a few exterior and interior photos and tell us what condition it’s in. From there, we’ll provide you with a market-based estimate of its value.

The next step of how to trade in your car is to call our sales manager. They’ll schedule an official inspection and appraisal in order to confirm the condition of your vehicle. After they’ve inspected it, you’ll receive an official offer, which you can either accept in the form of a check or use as credit toward your next model! Rest assured, you’ll receive the same offer, regardless of whether you choose credit or cash.

On a side note, if you plan on accepting the value in the form of credit, take a moment to explore our new and used inventories to get a sense of what models may interest you. Also, apply for financing in advance to expedite the process. That way, we can bundle your shopping journey and trade-in car valuation into one streamlined negotiation, saving you a ton of time at the negotiating table!
