How to Trade In a Car

Excited Couple Reviewing Trade in Offer with Salesman

 

Trying to sell a car yourself can be a hassle, but when you trade it in a at a dealership, you avoid the work yet to reap the benefits. If you have a car you’d like to sell to a dealership, you might be wondering, “How can I get the best offer on my trade-in?” The finance team at Allen Turner Chevrolet can help! Below, you can learn more about how to trade in your car the smart way, and maximize your trade-in offer.

Determine Your Car’s Worth

First, you’ll want to figure out just how much your car is worth. You can use our value your trade tool to get a quick estimate, based on current market values. Enter your vehicle’s make, model, trim, and year, and then provide your contact information. Beyond that, you can include information about the car’s condition, which will aid us in providing a fairer estimate. Of course, you can also do your own research, using tools like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®.

Get it Appraised

Next, it’s time to get your car appraised. We can provide an estimate based on market research, but to give you a final offer, we’ll need to sell the car in person. Our team will examine the car inside and out to determine if we could sell it as part of our used inventory. This would be the time to show us your trade-in value estimate, as well as any other trade-in offers you may have gotten from dealers.

Weigh Your Trade-In Offer Options

Once the appraisal is complete, you have three options: negotiate the offer, accept the offer and close the deal right away, or try your hand at getting another offer from a different dealership. We encourage our customers to do their own research, so they can get the best offer possible. Our trade-in offers are always fair and competitive, which gives our you the following advantages:

  • You can put the funds received from the car’s sale down on a new loan, giving you a headstart on paying it off.
  • Freedom to simply take the money and walk away. You can sell us your car even if you don’t buy one from us.
  • No need to take on the responsibilities of selling your car yourself. We’ll handle the hard work for you.
