Looking to trade in your current ride and take a new one around Morrisville, Bristol, and Levittown, PA? You’re in luck, because the team at Grace Auto Group has put together this vehicle trade-in checklist for you.
Follow each step to be one step closer to your next ride!
The first step in trading in your vehicle is to determine how much your current car is worth. You can do this by using sites like Kelley Blue Book® (KBB®) or Edmunds to see the value of similar vehicles. But, keep in mind, that every car is different and factors like mileage, model year, and even exterior color can play a role on value.
For a really accurate estimate of your car’s worth, use our KBB® Instant Cash Offer tool on our website. You’ll be given an offer right away and be able to understand what your car is worth during a trade-in.
Once you know your vehicle’s expected value, you’re ready to build a budget. Consider your monthly expenses and where a new car purchase will fit into the mix. By combining your desired monthly payment with the value of your trade-in, you’ll be able to build a budget for your next ride.
With your budget in hand, you’re ready to start looking into the best vehicles to match. Take the time to look through the different features each car offers and how this differs for each model year. With a solid idea of your ideal car in mind, you’ll easily be able to pick out the best one to suit your needs and your budget.
Before you can drive off in your new ride, you need to make sure your current one is ready to trade in. Start by taking your vehicle to our service center to get a multi-point inspection. One of our technicians will inspect all major components and recommend what maintenance should be done.
Then, you’ll want to give it a thorough cleaning of the interior and exterior to ensure the car looks in peak condition. The best condition your vehicle is in, the more likely you are to get a better trade in value.
The final step before swinging by the dealership is to ready all the documents you will need during the trade-in process. It differs per person, but in general you will want these docs on hand:
Once these documents are assembled, you’re ready to stop by our dealership and finish the trade-in process!
