How to Trade In My Car

So, what exactly happens when you go to trade your car at a dealership? One of our team members will typically meet you at the door to get things started. When you tell them you're interested in trading your car, they'll start by getting your model appraised.

As our experts check over your model, you can take some time to look through our inventory and take a test drive with your next vehicle. Make sure that everything is up to your standards and that you feel confident in your choice.

Once the appraisal is finished, our team member will make you an offer on your vehicle. This can be built directly into your payment plan to help cover the down payment. They'll use rates from a local bank or lender to secure excellent rates on your auto loan and show you the monthly payment for your purchase, including your trade-in's value.

Take your time looking over the paperwork here, and feel free to ask our team member any questions on your mind. They're here to help you!

If everything looks good to you, then you're ready to trade keys, and hit the road with your next ride!

What is the Value of My Car?

The value of your vehicle is determined by a variety of factors; key among them are the vehicle's:

  • Year,
  • Make,
  • Model.

You can use these three pieces of information to find out approximately how much your vehicle is worth on our website. In just a few seconds, our Value Your Trade tool can estimate the ballpark value of your vehicle.

When you visit us for an appraisal, your offer will be around that value. However, the vehicle's history and condition will also have some impact on the final value of the model.

Can I Boost My Car's Value?

The value you get on our website is just an estimate on your vehicle's value, so you can set your expectations. However, if you're looking to get more for your vehicle, there are a few steps you can take to get it.

Cleaning your vehicle and providing maintenance can go a long way in boosting your car's value. For even more details about how to boost your car's trade-in value, you can check out the full guide on our website!
