The Perks of Trading in Your Car

When it comes time to get a new ride, you may be wondering what to do with your current one. Selling it to a third party may come to mind, but it can be a huge time commitment.

Between placing ads, meeting up with potential buyers, and negotiating the price, it can be a lot of work. That’s why, when you trade in your car to a dealership, all you must do is bring your vehicle and the proper documentation—we do the rest.

It’s simple, easy, and lets you get behind the wheel of your new car faster. Now that we have covered the benefits of trading in, let’s dive into how to trade in your car at a dealer.

How to Trade in Your Car


Get Your Instant Cash Offer

The first step to trading in your car is to get an estimate of its value. Our dealership offers a Kelley Blue Book® Instant Cash Offer, so you can get an idea of what your current ride is worth as a trade-in.

All you need is to provide some details about your vehicle. These include:

  • License plate
  • VIN
  • Make/model

From there, you can provide information about your vehicle’s condition and options, so you can get the most accurate offer. Once you get your instant cash offer, you can schedule a time to bring it into the dealership.

Bring Your Trade-In to the Dealership

It’s almost time to seal the deal. After you get the instant cash offer, you can bring your car to our dealership, and the team will look and ensure that all the information is correct.

If you’re wanting to streamline the trade-in process, there are some handy pointers you can consider before you bring your car into the dealership:

  • Clear out your car of any personal information and items.
  • Get your car cleaned and detailed, so it looks its best.
  • Bring all service records and get the vehicle inspected, so nothing gets missed.

These tips can help simplify the process, and the dealership team will take care of the rest.
