Researching Vehicle Online

Find Out Your Car’s Estimated Trade-in Value

Before you make any other move, you’ll first want to find out the value of your used car. To do so, we offer an online tool you can use to find the value. This Value Your Trade tool will take into account everything from the condition of the vehicle to the mileage.

Keep in mind that the number you’re given is just an estimate and should be used as a basis for your trade-in journey. We suggest using more than just our trade-in value tool to receive multiple estimates. This could help you when you’re agreeing to a trade-in when you visit our dealership.

Car Appraised

Get Your Car Appraised

The next step in the process is to get your used vehicle appraised. This can be done through a couple of ways, including through sites like Edmunds.

If you’d rather visit our dealership for an in-person appraisal, we’d be delighted to have you come in. Again, things like the condition of the car could play a role in the offer provided by our staff, but we’ll keep you in the loop the entire time. One benefit of visiting our dealership for an appraisal is that we’ll work quickly to provide you with a fair number without the need for second-guessing if you were to rely on a website.

Finalize the Trade-in

Once we’re complete with our appraisal, our associates will leave the rest up to you. One such option is to accept one of the offers provided by our dealership.

Alternately, if you’re trying to decide between more than one offer, consider choosing the one that best suits your situation. You know your car better than anyone, and with the proper research, you can work to get the best option for you. After all, we want to make sure you’re the happiest you can be when you pay us a visit.
