Auto Dealership Trade-In Tips

tips for vehicle trade in at dealership

A dealership trade-in is commonly the easiest way to buy a new car. You could attempt selling your automobile yourself, however, if you’re seeking fast and easy then bringing it to us is your best option. Even if you are trading in a car with issues we can work with you to get you the very best deal possible.


Are There Dealership Trade-In Deals?

Yes, there definitely are such things as dealership trade-in deals. A dealership trade-in deal is one where the dealer acquires your vehicle when you get one of ours. For one reason or another, some models are much more in demand than others. Maybe it’s a weird paint color, doesn’t have the technology purchasers desire, or perhaps an updated version just came out, regardless of the reasons it’s better to sell the vehicle and bring in something that is likely to sell. If you’re looking for a trade-in deal, your best bet is to look into the new designs from the previous year. The brand new models are beginning to roll in and we need to make room for them. So, if you do not require to have the newest version of a vehicle then we might be able to get you a trade-in deal.


Will Auto Dealerships Do An Even Trade?

We will definitely do an even trade for your automobile. The important things to bear in mind when searching for ‘even swaps’ is that you may discover the retail value of your car and match it up with an automobile we’re selling, but we aren’t able to provide retail prices on a trade-in. Every trade-in will be required to be inspected for prospective problems and safety concerns. In many cases, there will be expenses connected to ensuring the trade-in is ready to be resold in a safe condition. Additionally, if your automobile isn’t paid off you’ll want to make sure that the dealer will settle your trade-in balance on any type of agreement. Every one of those items costs money, so your best option is to identify the trade-in value of your car, and browse our automobiles for something near that price. Bear in mind internet websites can only give a quote on what your vehicle’s value is. An exact value can only be given with an inspection. We make use of an industry-standard automobile assessment system to figure out the value of your trade-in.


Should I Trade In My Vehicle or Sell It Myself?

The traditional wisdom is that you’ll get even more money if you sell your automobile outright and afterwards acquire a car from the dealership. Nonetheless, that might not in fact hold true because in the majority of states the sales tax obligation paid on a car purchase is determined after your trade-in has been factored in. For example, the car you wish to buy is $30k and if you purchase it outright you pay tax obligations on the complete $30k. If we give you $15k for your trade-in, then you would be accountable for the tax obligations on the $15k remaining on the price. The taxes would be essentially be cut in half. So, while you might be able to get more money by selling it yourself, the lower tax obligations and ease of trading it here can negate any added dollars gained.


How Can I Get The Best Trade-In Value?

There are a couple of simple methods to make certain you get the very best trade-in for your car. If you adhere to these basic tips, it’ll help you get the best deal.

Make Sure Your Car is Clean

No one wants to buy a gross vehicle. If your automobile is loaded with garbage and is dirty, we’ll need to pay somebody to clean it. Spotless automobiles are simpler to sell, make it easy for us to purchase yours.

Show You’ve Taken Care Of It

If you have service records then bring them along to show that you’ve cared for your ride. Unless your vehicle still has a warranty, possible buyers will surely be worried about reliability. Having records highlighting regular service makes a vehicle much easier to sell.

Would have received 5 stars across the board if oil change didn't take over an hour. Otherwise it was perfect. Will use this dealer in the future.

Shawnee Mission Kia is always a pleasant experience. Their service advisors are professional, courteous and informative. The facility was sparkly clean, everyone wore masks and hand sanitizer was readily available. Even my steering wheel was covered with a protective cover when I picked up my car. Very happy customer!

Staff was very friendly and service was efficient. Called a Lyft for me so I could get back-and-forth from work. It was a good experience for our first oil change and tire rotation 🙂

I went to Shawnee Mission Kia to look for a Kia Sorento. However, upon arriving I found a cute car I had never heard of before. When we arrived inside we were greeted by our salesman, Justin.

UPDATE: Jon the service director went above and beyond to change my experience with SMK to a good one. He called me and discussed my previous experiences and wanted a chance to make it right. I decided to schedule the same service and a few other things before I go out of town, and Jon and his team got everything done for me. They were even able to look into the starting issue to see if it was the starter, and they were able to rule out that it was a problem with the starter. I hope to receive the ...

I’ve been dealing with an engine issue on my Kia for over a year now, they went out of their way to make sure it would get covered under warranty. It’s been a pain bringing it back frequently but Begi is awesome to work with!!
