How to Trade in a Car

If you’re thinking about your next ride around Saco, Scarborough, and Portland, ME, it’s always savvy to leverage your current ride for its value. By trading in your vehicle you can receive a better offer on whichever model you have your sights on next. Understanding how to trade in a car is important, though.

You Can Begin the Trade-In Process Online

The easiest way to start the trade-in experience is to utilize our helpful online trade-in calculator. For one thing, this calculator will give you an idea of the trade-in worth of your model. All you have to do is provide various insights about the car such as the make, model year, mileage, and condition.

Further, using the calculator will let our team know you’re interested in trading in your car. So from there we can be in touch, answer any questions you might have about the process, and generally help you move through the experience in an easy, efficient manner. After using the calculator, you can bring your car around and our technicians will give it a quick look over before signing off on the trade!

What Determines the Trade-In Value?

If you’ve taken good care of your vehicle over the years such as keeping up with routine service needs, it will improve the trade-in value of the model. In general, dealerships want to know the vehicle is going to be reliable for the next owner.

So variables like the condition, the mileage, and the exclusivity of the model are taken into account. At our dealership, we’re always looking to expand and improve upon our pre-owned lineup. We’ll be happy to offer strong value for whichever type of vehicle you have sitting in your driveway.

Ways To Improve Trade-In Value

If you’re trying to squeeze as much value as possible out of your vehicle, be sure to have the car thoroughly cleaned, both inside and out. You want the model to look as good as new when you bring it around to a dealership.

Further, have the model serviced if it is due for any oil changes, tire rotations, inspections, or other basic needs. Finally, a vehicle history report or some verification of the car’s prior services is extremely helpful. Knowing the model has been taken care of over the years will make it a more valuable proposition for the dealership taking it off your hands.
