Auto Dealership Trade-In Tips

tips for vehicle trade in at dealership

A dealer trade-in is usually the most convenient means to get a brand-new automobile. You can try selling your vehicle on your own, however, if you’re looking for quick and simple then bringing it to us is your best choice. Even if you are trading in a car with problems, we can work with you to get you the best deal.

Are There Dealership Trade-In Deals?

Yes, there is definitely a such thing as a dealership trade-in deal. A dealer trade-in deal will be one where the dealer acquires your car, truck, or SUV when you purchase one of our vehicles. For one reason or another, some vehicle models will be more popular than others. Perhaps it’s a strange paint color, doesn’t have the technology buyers want, or possibly an upgraded version just arrived, regardless of the factors it’s better to sell the car, truck, or SUV and bring in something more probable to sell. If you’re seeking a trade-in bargain, your best choice is to look into the new designs from last year. The Honda new models are beginning to roll in and we need to make room for them. So, if you don’t need to have the most updated version of a vehicle then we may be able to get you a trade-in deal.

Will Auto Dealerships Do An Even Trade?

We will absolutely do a straight-up trade for your car. The important thing to bear in mind when searching for ‘straight-up trades’ is that you might find out the retail worth of your vehicle and match it up with an automobile we’re offering at the same price, but we aren’t able to offer retail prices on a trade-in. Every trade-in will be required to be inspected for prospective issues and safety concerns. In most cases, there will likely be expenditures connected to ensuring the trade-in is prepared to be sold in a safe condition. In addition, if your vehicle isn’t paid off you’ll want to make certain that the car dealership will pay off your trade-in balance on any type of agreement. Every one of those items costs money, so your best bet is to determine the trade-in value, and search our vehicles for something near that price. Bear in mind internet research can only supply an estimate of what your automobile is worth. An exact value can only be given with an evaluation. We utilize an industry-standard vehicle evaluation system to figure out the value of your trade-in.

Should I Trade In My Car or Sell It Myself?

The traditional wisdom is that you’ll get even more money if you sell your car outright and then buy a car from the dealer. However, that might not really be true because in most states the sales tax collected on a vehicle acquisition is determined after your trade-in has been factored in. As an example, the automobile you wish to purchase is $30,000 and if you acquire it outright you pay taxes on the complete $30k price. If we offer you $15,000 for your trade-in, then you would be responsible for the tax obligations on the $15k remaining on the price. The taxes would be essentially be halved. So, while you might be able to get more money by selling it yourself, the lower taxes and convenience of trading it here can negate any extra dollars you would get.

How Can I Get The Best Trade-In Value?

There are a couple of easy methods to ensure you get the very best trade-in value for your vehicle. If you adhere to these simple ideas, it’ll help you get the best deal.

Clean Up Your Car

Nobody will buy a gross automobile. If your vehicle is filled with garbage and is dirty, we’ll need to pay someone to clean it. Tidy vehicles are much easier to sell, make it simple for us to buy yours.

Show You’ve Taken Care Of It

If you have maintenance records then bring them along to highlight that you’ve looked after your vehicle. Unless your car still has a service warranty, possible buyers will surely be worried about dependability. Having documents showing regular maintenance makes a vehicle simpler to sell.
