Our Vehicle Trade-In Tool

On this page, you’ll find our vehicle trade-in tool. Sourced from Kelley Blue Book®, it can provide you with an instant cash offer to buy your vehicle. Said offer can then be redeemed at our dealership within seven days.

To use this form, it will be helpful to have your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or your license plate number on hand so that this tool can identify your exact vehicle. Alternatively, you can enter in your make, model, year, and mileage to get your value.

This tool is also great because it provides a lot of additional information, including frequently asked questions about instant cash offers and where this Kelley Blue Book® tool sources its data from. You can scroll through the various questions to see if yours gets answered. If not, you can always reach out to our team for assistance.

Boost Trade-In Value

You want to get the best value possible for your vehicle, and there are ways you can boost your trade-in amount. First, you can start by cleaning out your vehicle. Remove all of your personal items from the car and vacuum the carpets, seats, and trunk area.

Then, you can wash it yourself or take it to the local car wash to give the exterior a nice shine. Should you notice some scratches or dents and would like to get them fixed, you can take it to a professional.

A quick wash and vacuum will show that you’ve maintained the vehicle’s appearance, but you also want to demonstrate that you maintained the car as a whole. Find your vehicle’s service records that outline what maintenance it has had throughout your ownership to give that value another boost.

Prepare To Trade In a Vehicle

You’ve washed the vehicle and found the service records, but there are still a few more steps you’ll want to take. As you get ready to set off to the dealership, make sure to bring the following items with you:

  • Spare keys
  • Vehicle title and registration
  • Any vehicle accessories that were included with your purchase

One last step is to delete information from all of your connected technology. This may include your navigation system, your garage door opener, and anything that’s paired to your phone.
