Value Your Trade

When you choose to trade in your car at a dealership like Rick Hendrick Chevrolet Buick GMC Richmond, you can avoid the hassle of trying to sell the vehicle yourself, and you also have the opportunity to apply the trade-in value to the purchase of a brand new Buick, Chevrolet, GMC car, truck, or SUV. If you’re wondering, “How can I get the best offer on my trade-in car?” our finance team is here to help. Just follow the steps below to ensure that you receive the best trade-in offers in the Henrico area.

Get Your Trade-In Car Value

The first thing you’ll need to do is to determine just how much your car is worth. Rick Hendrick Chevrolet Buick GMC Richmond makes this step quick and easy for Glen Allen-area drivers with our convenient value your trade tool. All you have to do is enter your car’s year, make, and model, along with your name, email, and phone number. From there, add information about the vehicle’s condition, and you’ll receive the estimated value of your car. If you would like to do more research, there are other online tools available, such as Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®.

Get an Appraisal

Once you have a trade-in estimate, head to our Buick, Chevrolet, GMC dealership in Richmond to get an appraisal. We will examine your car’s condition, inside and out, and we’ll also take into consideration our current used inventory to determine whether we can sell the vehicle. Make sure that you bring your trade-in value estimate (as well as any other trade-in offers you may have received) for our reference.

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

Once we have completed the appraisal, you can choose to either negotiate or accept our offer outright and close the deal. The whole process is very simple and straightforward, which is one of the benefits of trading in your car at a dealership. Other advantages include:

  • Unlike many Goochland-area used-car retailers, you can negotiate with a dealership like Rick Hendrick Chevrolet Buick GMC Richmond. The first offer you’re given isn’t necessarily set in stone, and you can choose to haggle up based on the trade-in value research you’ve done.
  • If you’re upside down on your auto loan and wish to consolidate what you owe with the price of your new car, a dealership can help you do that.

Once you have accepted the offer, you can finalize your trade for cash, or put the car’s value toward buying a new car.
