Deciding Whether to Sell or Trade

As you prepare to get a new car, you have to go through the options you have with regards to your current vehicle. You will consider selling or trading the vehicle.

Selling your vehicle is a good choice if you don't need to get a new car right away. By selling the vehicle, you can get the value directly into your pocket and save for something in the future. You can also sell to a dealership, so you don't need to have a buyer lined up right away to complete a sale. The dealership helps to take care of that while helping you get the proper value you for your car.

Trading your vehicle allows you to get the value of the vehicle and apply it to the purchase of a new car. This can help you have a lower down payment or get lower monthly payments on your new vehicle. You may not get as much in return as through a sale, but the value you get in lower monthly payments can be worth it for you.

Use Our Trade Value Tool

If you decide to trade in your vehicle, you want to make sure you are getting fair value toward a new vehicle. This means you should do some research to make sure you know what a fair value is. You can do this step from home.

Our online trade in value tool can help you get more information about the value of your vehicle. This tool allows you to get a value estimate and begin your search for a new vehicle knowing what to expect in return.

After using this tool, you can take the next step in the process and speak to a member of our finance team. We can help you make progress with your search and prepare your options for a trade-in before you visit us at our dealership.
