When you consider purchasing a new vehicle, you may have to decide what to do with your current one. You could try to sell it yourself via private party sale, but trading it in at a dealership might be better. If you either own the vehicle outright or have positive equity, the value of your trade can be used as a down payment on a new car. Take the time to research your vehicle to get the best value for your trade. Huffines Kia McKinney would love to have you trade in your car with us.

Why Trade Your Vehicle to a Dealership?

Trading your vehicle to a dealership can be a quick and easy process compared to selling it in a private sale. You won't have to take pictures, list the vehicle online, field phone calls, or make plans to meet with potential buyers. Selling your vehicle in a private sale can be challenging if you still owe money on an automobile loan. When you trade your car to a dealership, the entire transaction is completed in one place, whether you owe money or not.

It's as simple as driving into Huffines Kia McKinney in your current vehicle and driving out in a new one. When you complete a trade with us, we take care of all the paperwork and any payment to your financial institution. Dealerships can offer top dollar amounts for trades, especially if you're considering buying a brand-new vehicle.

Maximize Your Trade-In Value

You can do a few easy tasks to maximize the value of your trade-in vehicle. These include:

  • Washing the exterior: Give your vehicle a good scrub before going to the dealership to create a better first impression.
  • Cleaning the interior: Clean out any garbage or personal belongings, wipe down the inside of your vehicle using a high-quality interior cleaner, shampoo the carpets, and either wipe down or shampoo the seats.
  • Fixing any damage: If your vehicle has dings, dents, scratches, broken bulbs, or cracks in the windshield, take the time and money to fix the damage.
  • Updating your maintenance records: Recording routine maintenance, repairs, and replacement parts can make your vehicle more valuable.

How To Trade Your Vehicle to a Dealership

The first step when considering trading your vehicle is to determine its value. You can use Carfax, Kelley Blue Book, or Edmunds to find the value of your vehicle online. Using several websites can give you a better idea of your vehicle's worth. You can also schedule appointments at your local dealerships to determine what they'd be willing to pay for your trade. An appointment is often necessary because most dealerships have one person designated to value trade-ins. Once you have a few estimates or offers, you can negotiate confidently to get the best value.

It's also important to carefully time your trade. Certain vehicles can be in higher demand during the year. For example, convertibles might be more desired in the summer, while pickup trucks and all-wheel-drive vehicles will be highly sought in the winter. If gas prices are high, you'll want to wait until they drop again before trying to trade in a gas guzzler.
