Having trouble finding buyers for your car, so you’re finding yourself struggling to sell your old car? You’ve kept it in pristine condition, but you want to be rewarded for that effort by getting the most money you can possibly enjoy when you trade in your vehicle. But when you come into a dealership near Cody such as Yellowstone Toyota, you’ll get even better savings than you’ll get from selling to a third party. But how do you trade in a car at a dealership, and what are the benefits? Our finance department has put together this handy guide for you to show you how easy it can be for you to learn how to trade in your car, and if you’re curious about any of our processes, you can contact us today with any questions. 



Get Your Trade-In Car Value

The first step to learning how to trade in your vehicle is learning the value of it. To do that, you need to calculate how much your trade in vehicle is worth. It’s easy using our value your trade-in tool. Drivers in the Billings, MT area enter their personal information such as name, email, and phone number. Also, their car’s year, make, model, and name. Additionally, you need to complete information about the automobile’s condition, then the value of the car is totaled. Look on Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value® for more research. It’s a smart way to show you’re a savvy shopper.

Get it Assessed

The next step in learning how to trade in your car is to visit our Toyota dealership in Powell to get an assessment. Our process is looking at your car inside and out and determining our current used inventory to decide whether it has resale value. Don’t forget to bring your estimate or any other counter offers. 

Negotiate or Take a Trade-In Offer

So the appraisal is done. It’s time to negotiate. You can negotiate or accept the deal and settle the price. That’s why it’s an advantage to trade your car at a Laurel, MT dealership. It’s a simple transaction. Shall we go on?:

  • At used car retailers it’s one and done. Meaning you must take the offer they quote. Here at Yellowstone Toyota, it’s your option to bargain. 
  • Also, we understand your auto loan may need consolidation and want to help.

And that is all you have to do!
