Steps to Appraise Your Trade-in Car

If you’re wondering how to trade in your car, the first step is to use the tool above to get a near-accurate estimate of the market value of your trade-in car. Simply follow the prompts and provide information about your vehicle’s model year, make, model, trim level, condition, and add-on packages. Once you’ve gotten an estimate, put it in your back pocket. Then:

  • Contact our sales manager and schedule for an official inspection and appraisal.
  • Ahead of the inspection, clean your car. It’s probably cost-effective to have it detailed if there’s upholstery damage. Don’t worry about getting an oil change, though. Little maintenances are more cost-effective for us to take care of. If your vehicle needs major repairs, talk to our mechanics to get an assessment and way the costs against the market value of your vehicle.
  • On the date of the inspection, provide our sales manager with estimates you’ve received from our trade-in tool or other vehicle value calculators.
  • After the inspection, our manager will give you an offer. You can choose to accept it in credit or cash.
  • If you choose credit, we can guide you through the next steps of applying the value of your trade-in car towards your next vehicle.
