Excited Couple Reviewing Trade in Offer with Salesman

Whether you have your eye on the latest Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram model or you’re looking to increase your capabilities on your adventures around Seminole, you can avoid the hassle of selling your car by trading to a dealership. If you’re wondering how to trade in your car, the team at Tate Branch Hobbs has the easy steps you can follow to receive the best trade-in offer and easily apply your trade-in amount towards a new vehicle. Learn how to trade in a car below and contact us if you have any questions.

Determine Your Current Trade-In Value

To start the trade-in process, you should first understand how much your car is worth. With our Value Your Trade tool, you can simply enter your car’s year, make, and mode. You’ll then be able to detail the other factors to detail your model’s condition to get an estimated value. It’s also helpful to do more research on websites like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value® to dive deeper into the value of your model.

Schedule an Appraisal

After you’ve discovered how much your current vehicle is worth, head to Tate Branch Hobbs to get an appraisal near Andrews. Our team will take a closer look at your vehicle’s internal and external condition and weigh the model against our used inventory to determine how the vehicle will sell. Be sure to bring any research and the trade-in value estimate you found as it can help in the next step.

Deciding to Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

Once we’ve completed the appraisal, you have the option to negotiate or accept our offer and start your next adventure around Midland in a new model. As you can see, learning how to trade in your car is relatively straightforward, but trading with a dealership also offers benefits such as:

  • When you’re weighing how to trade in your car, negotiating can seem intimidating. However, we don’t discourage negotiation! While many used-car dealers around Andrews offer a price that is set in stone, you have the option to haggle based on your estimated trade-in value and any research you’ve found about your model.
  • When you find you still owe a balance on your auto loan, a dealership can help you consolidate what you owe into the price of the new car you have your eye on.

If you’re ready to accept the offer, you can either walk out with cash or put your trade-in value towards a new model.
