How to Trade in Your Car: Step-by-Step

Why should you learn how to trade in a car? Executing a trade-in at the dealership where you’re purchasing your next model is one of the simplest and most convenient ways to save on every monthly payment. Most importantly, it’s often much easier than selling your current vehicle privately.

While selling your current vehicle is an option, it can be a stressful, time-consuming process that might take weeks or even months. Here at Land Rover Paramus, we’d be happy to relieve you of those duties by making a trade offer. Here’s how to trade in your vehicle: 

  1. Determine Your Vehicle’s Trade-In Value: Utilize our trade-in calculator and do your market research on sites like Edmunds or Kelley Blue Book. See what average price your make, model, and model year seems to be going for in the Jersey City area. Compare that and adjust it to the condition of your vehicle. Doing your research will help you set realistic goals, and prepare you for any negotiations that may come later.
  2. Get Your Car Appraised: Next, you’ll need to get an appraisal from an expert. Our used car team members here at Land Rover Paramus are prepared to help you out today! This person will conduct a multi-point inspection on your vehicle, test drive it, and ask for the vehicle’s history. After gathering this information on the condition of your vehicle, they will appraise it and make you an offer.
  3. Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer: If the initial appraisal is within the range you found during your personal research, you can accept the offer and put the value of your current car toward the purchase of your new or new-to-you car from Land Rover Paramus. If you feel the appraisal was low, feel free to negotiate.
