How to Trade In a Car

Excited Couple Reviewing Trade in Offer with Salesman

Trading in a car at a dealership helps you mitigate the stress of selling your vehicle privately, which can often consume both time and money. Furthermore, you can put the money you earned from the trade towards a new Honda vehicle! So, you may be asking yourself, “how to trade in your car?” The expert finance center at Brown Honda of San Angelo can help you through this process, and provide you with a stress-free experience. To learn more about how to trade in a car in the Lubbock area, feel free to contact us anytime!

Getting Vehicle’s Trade-In Value

The first step in learning how to trade in your car is to get your vehicle’s trade-in value. Luckily, this is very straightforward for those in the Midland area, as you can use our value your trade tool. Just provide us with the make, model, and year of your car, and leave some contact information. If you know any other aspects of your vehicle, include those to get a more accurate value. You could also use the trusted tools provided by Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®

Getting Your Vehicle Appraised

Now that you’ve done some research, and have an estimate of your trade-in value, you can visit our Honda dealership in San Angelo for an appraisal. One of our experts will conduct an inspection of your vehicle to assess the interior and exterior condition. Furthermore, we will take a look at other vehicles on the lot to determine if we could sell your car. It is important to bring both your trade-in estimate and any other research you’ve conducted so you can negotiate. 

Negotiating Your Trade-in Offer

Once the appraisal is complete, and you’ve received your offer, you can either negotiate or accept the offer. This is where the trade-in estimate comes into play, as you can use your own research to negotiate the final offer. We make the entire process simple and stress-free, which is another reason you should consider trading in your vehicle at a dealership. Some of the benefits include:

  • The ability to negotiate your trade-in offer. Unfortunately, many used car lots around Odessa won’t allow you to negotiate your final offer. However, our dealership gives you the flexibility to negotiate your final offer based on your estimated trade-in value, and any other research you’ve conducted.
  • If you’re in a situation where you have gone upside down on your loan, you can consolidate this into your new loan with the help of our dealership.

When we both reach a figure we feel comfortable with, you can close the deal for cash or put the money towards a new vehicle.
