Our sense of good old fashioned honest business carries through to every transaction we make, including our trade in process.

When learning how to trade in your car, before anything else, you’ll want to determine roughly how much your car is worth to nearby Glen Allen dealerships. Of course, the evaluation of a professional may determine a lower or higher value of your vehicle, depending on its condition, but having this number in your head before starting the trade-in process is a good idea. Our website makes it easier than ever to get a reliable estimate of your vehicle’s approximate worth by providing the Trade-In Value Tool. Another source you can try for vehicle value estimate information is Kelley Blue Book, a brand which has been around since the mid-1920s!
For the next step in learning how to trade in a car, we invite you to our Richmond showroom with your vehicle for trade-in, so we may officially inspect and appraise it. Our Used Car Intake Manager will greet you, briefly go over the process and answer any questions you may have, then they will proceed to thoroughly inspect your vehicle – sometimes relying on the assistance of our trusted Service Department.
Once the appraisal is completed and you’ve received the manager’s trade-in value offer, it’s time to either accept the offer or decline it to seek a better offer elsewhere. We’re confident that you’ll like the offer we have to make, though! We pride ourselves on making a fair and fast first offer that you’ll love on your trade-in, but if the difference in making good business is attainable via some negotiation, we welcome that! That’s just part of doing friendly business.
If you’re wondering how to trade in your car and get the best possible offer, a good maintenance record is key. Make sure your vehicle is up-to-date on essential services like oil and filter changes and tire rotation, and ensure all of your vehicle’s fluids are topped off. While the dealership you visit will take the condition of your car’s interior and exterior into account, the most important factor – and the thing that will earn you the highest resale value – is a clean maintenance record.
Trading in your vehicle to us is not only a friendly experience, it’s much safer and more convenient than making a private sale. We pride ourselves on making the trade-in and buying process as transparent and straightforward as possible – because you deserve the best in an auto dealer.
Remember, if you have any more questions about trading in a vehicle, you can contact us online or call us at 844-415-1110 to learn more! Feel free to browse our online inventory to discover exactly what you’ll be trading in for!
