Do a Deep Clean

A thorough, deep cleaning can reflect how you treated the car overall and give a positive first impression. Rid your vehicle of any garbage or junk, and have the car washed, waxed, and vacuumed. We even recommend cleaning the engine, so there’s no grease and grime when you pop the hood.

Fix Dings & Dents

Over time, minor dings and dents might accumulate on your car’s exterior, and unfortunately, decrease the model’s value. Consider getting these cosmetic issues fixed to give your car a like-new appearance.

Research the Value

One of the most important things you should research is the vehicle’s value. You can easily find the value of your car through websites like Edmunds, Kelley Blue Book, AutoTrader, and the National Automobile Dealers Association. You can also discover your car’s value by filling out our convenient online appraisal form!

Don’t Hide Any Information

Don’t lie about your car’s history, such as if it’s been in an accident because an experienced appraiser will be able to see right through it. When you come to our used car dealership to trade in your vehicle, we will provide you with the best offer based on its history and current value.

Don’t Accept an Offer You’re Uncomfortable With

If we offer you a price that you’re unsure about, we will gladly negotiate with you. Please discuss any concerns or limitations you have with our offers, and we will do our best to give you a pricing deal you are comfortable with.
