Maybe you have a vehicle that you need to trade in before you can get a new car (or a car that's new to you). Trading in your vehicle doesn't have to be complicated. Here at Toyota of Fort Worth, we strive to ensure that our customers understand exactly how we value their trade. Keep reading to learn more about what you need to do before bringing in your vehicle and how we value your trade-in.
Essentially, the less work we have to perform on your vehicle to make it sellable (repairs, cleaning, paint touch ups, etc.), the more it is worth to us. That means you should detail your car, or at least wash and vacuum it, before receiving a trade-in quote from us. A good idea would also be to fix any scratches or other minor flaws, as this will make your car look as good as new, making it worth more money than a dirty and scratched one.
Depending on what our current inventory looks like, your vehicle may be worth more or less to us. For example, if we have more than plenty of vehicles that are like yours that have yet to sell, we can't offer you a higher trade-in price. On the other hand, if we think the likelihood of selling your vehicle is high, then we're more apt to offer you a better price.
Why trade in your vehicle with us rather than with another dealership or try to sell it yourself? The biggest benefit for people to trade in their vehicle with us is that it's a lot easier than attempting to sell it yourself. It can be a big hassle — not to mention taking time out of your busy schedule to schedule test drives — inspections and having to communicate with potential buyers. This can be overwhelming for a lot of people.
If you have any further questions or would like to know more about trading in your vehicle, contact us today or stop by our dealership at 9001 Camp Bowie West, Fort Worth, TX 76116. We look forward to serving our customers near Arlington, Burleson, Weatherford and Keller.
