How to Trade In Your Vehicle at a Dealership

Why Trade In Your Current Ride?

Selling your old vehicle can be a pain, especially with all the risks that come with selling via a private party. Trading in your vehicle is an easy and hassle-free way to sell your car quickly and simply. Dive in with us as we explore some tips and tricks to trading in a vehicle at a dealership, and explore how simple the process can be to find your next vehicle here at Kia of Orange Park.

Prepare Your Vehicle for Trade-In

The first thing that you’ll want to do when you decide to get rid of your old vehicle is to value your trade and see how much your car is worth. Typically this is done online by checking an appraisal site such as Kelley Blue Book® or Black Book® and entering in some simple information about your vehicle.

However, we at Kia of Orange Park provide a 10 Second Trade Value by letting you value your trade with just two easy steps. Once you’ve entered information like the year, make, options, and mileage, you’ll get an estimate for the fair trade-in value of your vehicle.

Once you’ve received your estimated trade-in amount, you’ll then want to assess if you have any outstanding debts on the vehicle, like a loan balance or a lien. If you owe more than your vehicle is worth, you may want to consider making a larger payment on your monthly note before trading in your vehicle, or consider rolling any negative equity into your next purchase. This means that the debt from your current vehicle will be included into the payment of your next auto loan.

If you’ve decided to move forward with your trade-in, gather your paperwork to ensure a smooth trade. This will include the title, loan paperwork (if applicable), registration, as well as service and repair records. When you’re ready, bring your vehicle into our Kia dealership and allow our experts to make your trade-in process easy and hassle-free.

Experience a Simple Way to Sell

When you bring your old vehicle into our Kia dealership, our experts will value your trade and give you a written offer for your vehicle. If you like the offer, you can accept the payment for your current ride or you can apply the value of your vehicle to a new Kia.

We strive to make the process easy and simple. You don’t have to get your old car fixed up or washed before bringing it to us—we’ll buy from you, even if you don’t buy from us!
