TRADE-IN YOUR
VEHICLE

Looking to trade in your car for a used car for the best value? Trading in your used car is a great way to get a discount on your next new or used car. You can also tell us more about your trade in vehicle and we can reach out to you to discuss your options!

Usually, when you trade in your car for a used car, the trade-in value of used vehicles are determined based on empirical data of similar vehicles sold in auction, and the current market prices of similar used vehicles available online. It is very important to do a thorough market research to find out how much your used car is worth. This helps you get a ballpark estimation of how much your vehicle is worth.

Your trade-in will be less than the actual value of your used car, as we have to resell your used vehicle close to the market price so we can make a profit. You can see this as a cost of convenience. Use online resources and websites to check the prices for vehicles online that are similar to your make, model, year and mileage.

Trade In Your Car For A Used Car

When trade in your car for a used car, mileage in fact is a key factor in determining the price of your trade-in car. Used cars with lower mileage are more attractive to potential buyers. The lower the mileage on your used cars, the more value you will get from it while trading-in.

On average used cars have a mileage of around 25,000 km per year. If your used vehicle has a lower than average mileage per year, you can always expect good prices for it. So for example, if you have a 2015 model that has less than 100,000 on the odometer (or less than 20,000 km/per year), you can negotiate a great deal as your car is expected to last longer.

Upon inspection, dealers usually rate your vehicle as excellent, great, good, or fair. Excellent condition means your vehicle has no exterior or interior damages, no mechanical problems, and every system is functioning well and in order. Very Good condition means your vehicle has minor visible or aesthetic flaws like scratches, tires mismatched, or minimal wear and tear on the body or interior. It has no mechanical issues.

The vehicle in good condition indicates that it has some issues like minor rust, visible wear, and tear to the interior and exterior body. It may need some servicing done, but doesn’t require major repairs.

Finally, a vehicle rated fair indicated that it needs mechanical repairs, repainting, and/or reconditioning. It may have reparable damages, and parts may need to be replaced. It is important for you to understand the condition of your car and what you would rate it before considering a trade in your car for a used car.
