Why Trade-In Your Vehicle at the Dealership

tips for automobile trade in at dealership

A dealer trade-in is typically the easiest means to get a new car, truck, or SUV. You might attempt selling your automobile on your own, but if you’re going for quick and simple then bringing it to us is your best alternative. Even if you are trading in a car, truck, or SUV with troubles we can work with you to get you the best bargain.


Dealership Trade-In Deals- Fact or Fiction?

Yes, there absolutely are such things as dealership trade-in deals. A dealership trade-in deal will be one where the dealer acquires your vehicle when you acquire one of our cars. For one reason or another, some car models are more in demand than others. Maybe it’s a strange paint color, does not have the tech customers desire, or maybe an upgraded version just came out, no matter the factors it’s better to sell the automobile and bring in something that is likely to sell. If you’re searching for a trade-in bargain, your best option is to take a look at the new versions from last year. The new models are beginning to roll in and we need to make space for them. So, if you do not need to have the most upgraded version of a car then we might be able to get you a trade-in deal.


Will a Car Dealership Do An Even Trade?

We will certainly do a straight-up trade for your car. The important things to bear in mind when trying to find ‘straight-up swaps’ is that you may discover the retail value of your vehicle and match it up with an automobile we’re offering, but we aren’t able to give retail prices on a trade-in. Every trade-in will be required to be checked for potential troubles and safety concerns. In most cases, there will likely be costs related to ensuring the trade-in is ready to be resold in a safe condition. Furthermore, if your car isn’t paid off you’ll want to see to it that the dealership will repay your trade-in balance in any type of deal. Every one of those things costs money, so your best option is to identify the trade-in value, and browse our automobiles for something near that price. Remember internet websites can only provide a quote on what your car is worth. A precise value can only be given with an evaluation. We use an industry-standard automobile appraisal system to determine the value of your trade-in.


Trade In My Vehicle or Sell It Myself – Which is Best?

The traditional wisdom is that you’ll get more money if you sell your vehicle outright and afterwards acquire a car from the car dealership. However, that may not in fact be true because in most states the sales tax paid on a vehicle purchase is determined after your trade-in has been factored in. For instance, the automobile you intend to get is $30,000 and if you buy it outright you pay tax obligations on the full $30k price. If we give you $15k for your trade-in, then you would be accountable for the tax obligations on the $15,000 remaining on the price. The taxes would be essentially be halved. So, while you may be able to get more money by selling it on your own, the lower tax obligations and simplicity of trading it here can negate any extra money you would get.


What Can I Do To Get The Best Trade-In Value?

There are a couple of straightforward techniques to ensure you get the best trade-in value for your car. If you follow these basic tips, it’ll help you get the best deal.

Make Sure Your Car is Clean

Nobody will buy a gross automobile. If your car is full of trash and is filthy, we’ll need to pay someone to clean it. Clean cars are much easier to sell, make it easy for us to purchase yours.

Prove You’ve Taken Care Of It

If you have maintenance documents bring them along to highlight that you’ve looked after your car. Unless your automobile still has a warranty, possible customers will surely be concerned with dependability. Having documents highlighting regular maintenance makes a vehicle much easier to sell.

Probably my first 5 star review for a car dealership ever. Thanks to our salesman Hasan Majied for making the purchase process super fast and efficient (after we had spent a bit of time landing on an agreeable price). We were in and out in record time. Can’t recommend them more and am happy to join the Mazda family. Hopefully our new CX5 treats us well for the long haul!

After not having a car payment for 3 years I reluctantly drove to Gillman Mazda where I was met by Mr Ricky Mehra who really understand what I was looking for. He asked lots of questions to get me in the right vehicle. After 2 days bonding with my new CX-9 I decided to sign the deal. The staff at Gillman are great I'd definitely recommend.

Walked in just wanting to look a used truck i saw online. A nice sales guy who goes by Wolf took me on a test drive and didn't pressure me at all to buy. He made the experience pleasant. He just wanted me to drive it to see if it was what i wanted. Great customer experience. Good job Mazda!
