Wondering how to trade in a car and maximize your profits? It’s easy, if you follow some key steps.
How do You Trade in a Car?
Ultimately, you want to get as much money as possible for your trade in. Accomplishing this is all about arming yourself with information:
- Estimate your car’s trade-in value. Go online for pricing guides and third-party data.
- Get quotes for your trade-in. Call or email local dealers for trade-in appraisal.
- Use your new car purchase as leverage. Keep your trade-in and new car purchase negotiations separate.
- You don’t have to trade in your car. You can always sell your car to a private party if you don’t like your offers.
When to Trade in a Car
When you don’t owe any money on your car, trading it in is a no-brainer. If you have a car loan, things can get a little dicey if you owe more than your car is worth because you’ll have to pay the difference.
