How to Trade In a Car

Excited Couple Reviewing Trade in Offer with Salesman

Whether you need a little more space or extra horsepower, sometimes it’s time for an upgrade for those Sparta Twp travels. And if you’re in the market for a new model, learning how to trade in a car can be a huge asset. When you trade in your old vehicle, you save yourself the hassle of selling the car on the private market – and you can also boost your budget in a big way! If you’re ready to find your new vehicle, take a look at how to trade in your car like a pro:

Research Your Car Value

It’s important to do your homework before you start the trade in process. That’s because every used vehicle is just a little bit different. Luckily, there are plenty of online tools available to help estimate your car’s current value based on factors like make and model, condition, and mileage. Just fill out the form, and you’ll receive an instant estimation of your vehicle’s value in the Hackettstown area. Check out the Sussex Honda Value Your Trade tool to get started.

Schedule an In-Person Appraisal

Now that you have an estimate of your car’s value, it’s time to get a quote. During your in-personal appraisal in Newton, an expert will go over your vehicle inside and out. This includes everything from road performance to vehicle history to appearance. After a thorough inspection, you’ll receive a specific quote that you can compare to your online research in Denville.

Negotiate Your Offer

Sussex Honda makes the negotiation process hassle-free, so you can spend more time on the fun stuff – like getting behind the wheel of your new car!

  • If your appraisal is satisfactory, accept the offer and compete the paperwork.
  • If you want to negotiate, be sure to bring your online research to make your case.
  • If you need to roll over your auto loan, talk to the finance department to find out how to do so.
