Steps for How to Trade in Your Car

The first step is to get your trade-in value for your current car. There are many simple online tools available to help you determine how much your car is worth. Shottenkirk Toyota of Weatherford makes it easy with our convenient value-your-trade tool. Simply enter your car’s make, model, and age, along with your contact information. Then, add some information about the car’s condition, and you’ll soon get an estimated value for your vehicle. 

If you want, you can compare estimates using Kelley Blue Book® Value or Edmunds True Market Value® as well.

Get an Appraisal From the Dealership

Once you have a trade-in estimate, contact dealerships around Fort Worth to get an appraisal. Most dealerships will check your car’s condition and consider their current used car inventory to determine how easy it will be to sell the vehicle if they take it in on trade. Make sure to bring your trade-in value estimate with you, along with any other trade-in offers you might have received.

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

The last step in how to trade in your car is the fun part. Once you get an offer, you can either negotiate or accept the offer outright and close the deal. The whole process is relatively straightforward and one of the main benefits of trading in your car to a dealership. Other benefits of trading in your car include:

  • The first offer you receive from a Azle dealership isn’t set in stone. If you want, you can negotiate the price up based on your trade-in value research. 
  • If, for some reason, you’re upside down on your car loan and need to consolidate what you owe with the price of your next car, a dealership is your best bet. 

Once you have accepted an offer, you may finalize your trade-in for cash or put the amount toward buying a new vehicle. Imagine how much more fun your commute to Mineral Wells will be in a new Toyota!
