Dealership Trade-in Tips and Secrets

What’s Your Car Worth?

Dealership trade-in tips and secrets to help you navigate the appraisal process at a car dealership.

I will always recommend selling your trade-in on your own over trading it in at a dealership.  You will be able to get much more money from your trade than with a dealership.  I understand some people must trade because they don’t have the time or patience and that’s okay.

Two common practices during the trade-in process are offering you wholesale prices or less… and attempting to “hold money on your trade.”  This means a dealer will initially offer less than what your vehicle is worth at the time of negotiation.
