    How to Determine Your Car's Trade-In Value?

    This is a straightforward process. All you have to do is fill out our trade-in appraisal form and input the required information about your car. Our user-friendly form automatically determines the estimated value of your vehicle and sends you a report based on the information you inputted. Trade-in value is determined by the year, make, model, mileage, class, desirability, and car's condition upon the trade-in date.

    How to Maximize Your Car's Trade-In Value?

    Once you've determined the estimated value for your used vehicle, you can do a few things to maximize this value even more. One option is to get your car cleaned and detailed. A clean and detailed vehicle is worth more as a trade-in than a dirty or poorly maintained car is. This is because it shows us that you care about the condition of your vehicle and that it was more likely to have been taken care of when owned by you. Another thing you can do to increase the value of your used car is to take care of minor repairs. Some minor repairs that you should consider are fixing windshield damage, minor engine issues, a burned-out taillight, and things such as. Another excellent option for better value is to provide servicing documentation. Service documentation from simple oil changes to engine repairs shows the dealership what kind of care your vehicle received when you owned it. Also, if you have documents to prove that your car has never been in an accident, that would be beneficial as well. These solutions can help increase the worth of your used vehicle by a couple of hundred dollars or more.

    Why Trade Your Car in At Elmswood Car Sales Ltd.?

    There are many benefits to trading your used car rather than selling it outright. For one, you save time and effort by trading in your used vehicle with us. All you have to do is bring in your used car, choose another vehicle from our lot, and we handle everything else. With this, you won't have to worry about supplying a safety certificate, emissions tests, or any other hassles of trying to sell it privately. Another bonus is that you save money on the car of your choice from our lot. Your trade-in value will automatically be applied to the total price of the new vehicle you wish to purchase, and you will only have to pay taxes on the price difference. This value will work as a down payment for your new vehicle leading to lower interest rates and fewer monthly payments. It's a win-win!
