Where Do I Even Start?
There are several reasons that you may be considering trading in your vehicle. You may want a newer model, or your family could be growing so you need something bigger. Trading in your vehicle can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be if you do a little research to ensure you get top dollar for it. Our staff at Toyota Northwest Edmonton are happy to help you with every step of the way.
There are many benefits to using a dealership to trade in your vehicle for something newer. It is extremely convenient because you don’t need to spend weeks advertising your vehicle and meeting with potential buyers. All you need to do is show up with your vehicle and our sales department will take care of the entire transaction from start to finish–which may take a day or two. Trading in your vehicle will also significantly reduce the price of your new car purchase which means you’ll pay less tax and/or interest.
The most important factor to consider when trading in your vehicle is its condition, as this can make a huge difference in the amount you can get for it. Prior to visiting our dealership, make sure your vehicle is spotless, both inside and out. Along with this, ensure that everything is maintained and functioning properly, and if there is a defect, be sure to mention this to us. When you’re negotiating with sales, be sure to push the best aspects of your vehicle and be transparent about its history because this may improve the value you receive for it. Keep in mind that every dealer is different, so you may get a different value for your trade-in based on location or time of year.
There are a couple of online resources to help you gauge an approximate trade-in value. Our trade tool above is perhaps the most convenient option. It factors in location, trim level, add-ons, and the number of kilometers to give you an approximate trade-in value. However, keep in mind this is only applicable if your vehicle is a 2001 model or newer. For older models, VMR Canada will go back as far as 1983 and will factor in trim level and add-ons, but not location, number of kilometers, or the price of your replacement vehicle.
Trading in your vehicle can be a stressful process for some people, but our staff at Toyota Northwest Edmonton is committed to making the process as quick and easy as possible.
