Below, we will discuss how you can sell your car to us, help you discover your vehicle’s trade-in value, and tell you what you need to do before the final appraisal. If you have any questions along the way, feel free to stop by our dealership near Lansing, East Lansing, and Williamston, MI. Let’s get started.
Sell Your Car to Us!
Selling your sedan, SUV, minivan, or truck to us before purchasing or leasing another one is a great way to get some money back for a down payment or a higher trim level vehicle! Our financial advisors are more than happy to talk with you about our trade-in and buyback programs.
Here’s how the process works:
Visit our finance center: Our financial advisors can give you a ballpark estimate on your vehicle’s worth. They’ll also tell you all the steps you’ll have to take later down the line.
Schedule an appraisal appointment: To help you get an official trade-in value, your vehicle will be examined by our in-house appraiser.
Accept an offer: Once the appraisal is done, you can negotiate the asking process until there’s an offer you’re 100% confident with.
Hand over the keys: After accepting an offer and completing the necessary paperwork, all you’ll have to do is hand over the keys and drive away in your new ride.
How to Determine Trade-In Value
While the final appraisal will give you your concrete trade-in value, you can also gauge how much your cruiser is worth by using the Instant Cash Offer tool on our website. Once on the application, you will need to input some vehicle information to help us determine a fair price.
As we’ve mentioned the appraisal multiple times, you may be wondering, “What do they check during an appraisal?” Our appraiser’s main goal is to check the vehicle’s overall condition. With that being said, they’ll check the following:
Any exterior cosmetic damages
Any incomplete maintenance needed
Any wear and tear in the cabin
Tire tread depth
Operation and more!
What Do I Do Before the Appraisal?
You’re going to want to make your vehicle look as good as possible before taking it in for your appraisal. Not only will you want to make it look sparkly clean inside and out, but you’re going to want to take it in for any missed maintenance schedules—a big part of the appraisal is checking its operation!
Before the appointment, you’re going to want to remove any personal items and information from the vehicle. This includes any cargo in the trunk, any registrations or receipts in the glovebox, or any personal information on the infotainment system.
