Get Your Trade-In Car’s Value

The first step in learning how to trade-in a car is learning how much your vehicle is worth as it stands. This lets you know if you’re getting a good deal when you receive an offer. Submit your car’s year, make, and model, and contact information. One of our team members will reach out to you to get more pertinent information.

While we have our own trade-in value calculator, there are other tools available, like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®.

Get an Appraisal

Now that you have a better idea of how much your vehicle may be worth, it’s time to get an official appraisal. You can do this by making an appointment at a reputable dealer like Gerald Kia of Naperville. No matter if you’re in Aurora or Yorkville, our team would be glad to complete a detailed car inspection.

If you choose to have your vehicle appraised with us, our team will examine the vehicle’s condition and determine if it’s ready for us to purchase. If you visit other dealerships as well, be sure to bring you appraisals and any other offers for us to reference.

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

Once the appraisals are complete, you may have some negotiation power. This is especially true of you have several competitive offers. While choosing the highest offer may seem like the straightforward choice, there are a few trade-in tips and tricks to keep in mind. Consider the following:

  • Some dealerships don’t let you negotiate your offer. Once they give you a trade-in amount, it can’t be increased. In many cases, our team at Gerald Kia of Naperville will work with you.
  • If you’re upside down on your auto loans and wish to consolidate what you owe with the price of your new car, you’ll have better luck at a dealership like Gerald Kia of Naperville.
