  • Catalog Your Car’s Add-ons and Accessories: If you added on any accessories or customized your car, make note of these additional features so that you can factor their value into the overall equity of the vehicle.
  • Procure Your Car’s Title: Make sure to have your car’s title on hand, so that you don’t have to order a new one when you arrive at the dealership for the sale.
  • Do Your Homework: Use our trade-in calculator and several other trade-in calculators online to get multiple quotes of what the market rate is for your model. Bear in mind that these quotes are estimates and our mechanics will have to verify the condition of your vehicle.

The Steps of the Sale

  • Inspection: Bring the quotes you received, as well as your vehicle’s service history to our Used Car Manager. They will inspect your vehicle and verify its condition.

  • Finalize the Deal: Once you’ve reached an agreement on the value of your vehicle, you’ll want to accept the offer and then choose between taking cash or trading your vehicle in for credit towards another model on our lot!
