How Dealers Value Your Trade in Greenville, SC

Dealing with vehicle trade-ins can be complicated. But it doesn't have to be! Here at Big 'O' Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, we strive to simplify the car-buying process, and that means helping guide you through the whole thing. Keep reading to learn more about how we place a value on your trade in, as well as why trading in your current vehicle can help you maximize your savings!

Your Vehicle’s Condition

The bottom line is that the less labor your vehicle requires after purchasing it (repairs, cleaning, paint job etc.), the more it is worth to us. So, you’ll probably want to detail, or at least wash and vacuum, your car before bringing it in for a quote. Consider fixing scratches and other minor flaws. This will help your vehicle look as good as new and worth more money than a dirty and scratched one.

Our Current Inventory

Your vehicle's value to us depends heavily on what our current inventory looks like. For example, if we have a lot of vehicles similar to yours that have not sold, then we probably won’t offer you a high trade-in price. On the other hand, if we believe the likelihood of a sale for your vehicle is high, then we’re more likely to offer you a higher value.

So why trade-in your vehicle?

You might be wondering why you should trade in your vehicle with us instead of attempting to sell it yourself. The biggest benefit for people who trade in their vehicle with us is that it’s much easier than trying to sell it yourself. Arranging test drives and inspections and communicating with potential buyers can be a lot to deal with. So, why not kill two birds with one stone?
