How to Trade In A Car

man hands the keys to the car

As if the car-buying process wasn’t stressful enough, you also need to figure out what to do with your current vehicle. Fortunately, you can leave that part to the experts when you trade it in at your Rumson-area Jaguar dealership! Learn how to trade in a car with the guide from the Jaguar Monmouth finance center, and know that we’d be happy to take it off your hands. You’re just a few steps away from the new or new-to-you Jaguar you’ve been dreaming of.

How To Trade In Your Car: Step-By-Step

Learning how to trade in a car is a useful skill, and the knowledge will come in handy any time you trade up for a newer vehicle. Trading in your vehicle may seem daunting, but you can break the whole experience down into a 3-step process. Here’s how:

Step 1: Estimate Trade-In Value

Learning how to trade in your car starts with discovering its true market value. This will give you a sense of what your vehicle is actually worth, and it will also help you negotiate if you end up receiving a low offer. Here are a few points to keep in mind as you get started:

  • Kelly Blue Book and Edmunds both offer tools to reliably estimate your vehicle’s trade-in value. You can also use our free online Value Your Trade tool for an instant estimated trade-in value.
  • Trade-in value is based on factors like your vehicle’s make, model year, trim, condition, and maintenance history.
  • You’ll also want to find out what cars like yours have recently sold for in the Colts Neck area.

Step 2: Get Your Vehicle Appraised

Now that you know what your vehicle is worth, it’s time to visit your dealership for an appraisal. Jaguar technicians will thoroughly inspect your vehicle’s condition and review your maintenance history. If you’ve been keeping up with your recommended service intervals, there shouldn’t be any surprises!

A perfect maintenance history ensures that your vehicle is in the best possible condition, and in general, it will also maximize your vehicle’s resale value! If your car is a low-mileage, recent-year model that’s been maintained well, the dealership may be able to resell it as a Certified Pre-Owned model–and that means they’ll be able to put more money in your pocket.

Step 3: Negotiate or Accept an Offer

In some cases, the offer you receive may be less than the estimated trade-in value. If that happens, you have some room to negotiate for a higher offer. That’s why doing your research is such an important step in the trade-in process! If you know what similar models have been selling for recently, and your car is in great like-new condition, you may be able to leverage that information to your advantage.
