How to Trade In a Car

Young Couple Looking Over Paperwork

Trading in a car in the Waterbury area is quick, easy, and hassle-free at Honda of Watertown. It’s also much more convenient than trying to sell the car on your own, and if you are trading in your old car to buy a new Honda vehicle, you can apply the trade-in value towards your purchase. Of course, the first thing you’re going to want to know is “How can I get the best offer on my trade-in car?” Find the answer to that question and more in the following vehicle trade-in guide from Honda of Watertown.

How to Trade in a Car: Value Your Trade

The first thing you’ll need to do when attempting to get the best offer on your trade-in car in the Southbury area is to determine how much the vehicle is worth. The easy-to-use online value your trade tool from Honda of Watertown can help you get a fair market estimate in a flash. Just enter the vehicle’s year, make, and model, along with your name, email, and phone number. Then, add some information about the vehicle’s condition. Once you submit the online form, you’ll receive the estimated value of your car within seconds! You can also try some of the other online tools available, such as Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value® if you would like to do further research.

How to Trade in a Car: Get an Appraisal

Armed with the estimated trade-in value, bring the car, along with the title, registration, and any service records or loan information, to Honda of Watertown for a formal appraisal. We will conduct a thorough mechanical and appearance inspection of your car’s condition, and based upon the results of our inspection, we will present you with an offer.

How to Trade in a Car: Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

It is entirely your decision whether to accept our offer outright or try to negotiate a better deal. We make the trade-in process as fair, straightforward, and transparent as possible for Torrington-area customers like you, which is one of the benefits of trading in your car at a dealership. Other advantages of selling your car to a dealer include:

  • You are free to haggle over the price based on the estimated trade-in value.
  • If you still have an outstanding loan you are paying on your current vehicle, our in-house finance experts can help you consolidate what you owe with the price of your new car.
  • Once you have accepted the offer, you can take the trade-in value as cash or apply it to the purchase of a new Honda or one of our high-quality used vehicles.
