How To Trade-In a Car In 3 Easy Steps

Before we specifically address how to trade in your car, it’s important that you understand equity. Equity is simply the amount of money between your vehicle’s trade-in value and your auto loan. You have positive equity if your vehicle’s value is worth more than your vehicle loan. Negative equity is the opposite of that and is also known as being “upside-down.”

Fortunately, you don’t have to drive all around Williston to find a finance team that can help if you have negative equity. Our multiple dealership locations are staffed with a professional finance team that has the expertise to assist various different financial backgrounds. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, here’s what the trade-in process looks like at our dealerships:

  • Get Your Trade-In Value: You’ll want to start by determining your vehicle’s trade-in value. We’ve got a trade-in tool that you can use from the comfort of your own home.
  • Trade-In Appraisal Confirmation: After finding an estimate of your trade-in value, you’ll want to bring it to our dealership for an appraisal confirmation. We’ll go over its service history, condition, and many other factors before providing you with a trade-in amount.
  • Accept Trade-In Amount: We’ll work with you to find the right trade-in value that you deserve for your ride. After you’ve accepted the trade-in amount, we can begin helping you find your next dream vehicle.
