How Is Trade-in Value Determined?

There are a few different factors that go into evaluating the value of your trade-in. The most common factors include:

  • Current market demand
  • Overall mechanical condition
  • Exterior & interior aesthetics
  • Accident & service history

What's the value of your trade-in? Good question! You can find out with our Value Your Trade tool. All you need to get started is your vehicle's year, make, model, and trim. Once you answer a few more questions about its condition, you'll receive an appraisal.

What Are the Benefits of Trading in My Car?

There are several advantages to trading in your vehicle. For starters, transactions like this are safer with a trusted dealership. On top of that, you'll also enjoy benefits like:

  • A tax break
  • Less detailing and reconditioning costs
  • Dealership advertising
  • Ease of purchasing another vehicle

When you purchase a car, you'll pay sales tax on the total purchase. When you trade in a vehicle, you only pay the sales tax on the difference between the purchase price of the new vehicle and the value of your trade-in.

If you trade in your vehicle, you'll need another set of wheels to drive home. It's easy to get your next car when you trade to a dealership. You can shop for a new or used vehicle that matches your lifestyle, and you may even have a nice down payment thanks to your trade.

Can I Boost the Value of My Trade-in?

There are a few things you can do to sweeten the value of your trade-in. You can take the following steps before bringing in your vehicle for a trade:

  • Bring the maintenance up to date
  • Take care of body work
  • Detail interior & exterior
  • Time your trade

It's always a good idea to take your vehicle in for a quick inspection before trading it in-even if you've kept up with the scheduled maintenance. A technician will make sure everything is in working order and may even recommend replacing some worn-out parts, which could give your vehicle's value a boost.

Scratches, dents, and dings have an impact on trade-in value, so a quick trip to the body shop could pay dividends. An experienced body shop technician can knock out minor dents and buff out scratches without the need for any new parts.

Should I Trade in My Car?

If you're ready for a new set of wheels, trading in your current car is a simple transaction that could help make the process even easier. When you trade in with a reputable dealer like Land Rover Solon, you'll have a team at your back to guide you through each step.
