How to Trade In a Car

2019 Nissan Murano Driving

Tifton drivers often ask us at Tenneson Nissan how to trade in a car. When you trade in your car at a dealership, you avoid the hassle of selling the vehicle yourself, and you can apply the trade-in value of your current car to the purchase of a new Nissan car, SUV, or truck. Here Tenneson Nissan explains what to know when trading in a car. Just follow the simple steps below, and contact us if you have questions about the trading in a car process.

Get Your Trade-In Car Value

First, find out how much your car is worth. Tenneson Nissan makes it easy for Tifton drivers to get an estimate on their trade-in with our value your trade tool. Simply enter your vehicle’s year, make, and model, along with your contact details. Then, add information about your car’s condition, and you’ll soon receive an estimate on the value of your car. If you want to do more research, you can do the same on Kelley Blue Book® Value or Edmunds True Market Value®

Get an Appraisal

Once you have your trade-in value, visit Tenneson Nissan near Albany to get an appraisal. Our team will examine your car’s condition and consider our current used inventory to decide whether it’s likely we could sell your vehicle. Please bring your trade-in value estimate with you, along with any other trade-in offers you may have received, so that we can use them for comparison.

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

Next, you choose to either accept or negotiate the offer and close the deal. The whole process is pretty straightforward, which is one of the advantages of trading in your car to a dealership. Other benefits include:

  • The first offer you receive isn’t necessarily set in stone. You can always try to haggle it up. 
  • If you’re upside down on your car loan and want to consolidate what you owe with the price of your next car, a dealership can do that, and a private party can’t.

Once you have accepted an offer, you can take the cash or put the trade-in value toward buying your next car.
