If you’re like most drivers, you probably are going to finance your next vehicle. Whether you’re a new driver or a returning customer, our specialists take great care to secure terms that best fit your lifestyle.
One thing we encourage is trading in your car. This puts the fair-market value of your current vehicle towards the price of your next one. Not only can this end up lowering your monthly payment, but it also can free you from the extra insurance and maintenance costs, not to mention freeing up space in your garage.
If you’re interested to see what your car, truck or SUV is currently worth, we encourage you to enter its info through our Value Your Trade tool. Within minutes, you can receive an initial estimate you can later present to our appraisers.
A lot goes into determining a fair trade in price. Vehicle condition, mileage, and the local market all help determine what a dealer can offer you. A popular model with low mileage and minimal wear can often snag a better deal than an older model with more signs of use.
This isn’t to say your favorite set of wheels still can’t garner a fair quote. There are a few things you can do to increase your trade-in value, including:
Do Your Homework
In today’s online world, you can research almost anything, including your car’s value. Reputable sites like Edmunds.com and Kelley Blue Book use local market data to provide an independent estimate.
With this type of knowledge on hand, you’ll be able to better determine whether the price you’re offered compares to what you can find elsewhere.
Get a Check Up
To avoid any surprises, it’s a smart move to have your vehicle fully inspected by a certified technician.
While minor maintenance and repairs can definitely provide a boost, you’ll want to consider what types of repairs will increase value and which will only serve to drain your checkbook.
Perhaps the only people who know your vehicle better than you is the team over at CARFAX®. By presenting a detailed Vehicle History Report™ to our appraisers, you can gain greater peace of mind knowing your vehicle is being accurately appraised. Details include:
