Get the Best Trade-In Value for Your Current Car, Truck, or SUV

When it comes to buying a new set of wheels, the hardest part can be figuring out what to do with your old one. Getting rid of your old ride can be an emotional process. Every stain has a story behind it and it has been with you through several life events. No matter what your attachment is, it can be difficult to say goodbye. We here at Toyota of Somerset in Somerset, KY have put together a short trade-in guide to help you along the way. While this guide is not exhaustive, but it's a great starting point and our staff members are ready to help!

Step One

The first step to getting rid of your old ride is to determine the best way to do it. Traditionally, there are two options available. You could place it up for sale with a sign in your Danville, KY driveway or post and add online. On the other hand, you could sell it directly to us for more ease. The latter is easier for several reasons. When we purchase your old ride from you, the amount is applied directly toward your new one. In other words, we make the process almost effortless.

Also, when you sell us your ride, we can electronically transfer ownership. Doing this can help protect you from legal issues that might arise by selling your old ride to a third party.

Step Two

After you've decided to let us purchase your ride, you may want to start doing a little research on what you want to get next. You can start by seeing how much vehicles of the same make and model are worth. Doing this can help give you a realistic expectation when looking to buy something new.

When considering the quality of your trade, you have to consider a few things. For example, how well does it run? Has it been an accident? Have you kept up with routine maintenance? When it comes to finding a value for your trade, our appraisal experts are second to none and want to help you get the best value for your current car!

Step Three

Cars, by design, are meant to be driven, and as a result, life happens. However, that is not an excuse to leave the interior or exterior a mess. Take the time to clean your old ride and show us how much it meant to you during your ownership.

Go through your old ride and remove anything worth keeping. That includes garage door openers, the glove compartment, and maybe even give it a good wash. Daily treks through the Lexington area can give your car a fresh layer of dirt on the exterior. Wash it before coming to see us, this way we can see it the same way you used to.

Step Four

Arguably, this is the best step in the entire process, find your next set of wheels. Take your time and consider all the things that you love and dislike about your old ride. Making a list of these things is a great way to narrow down your search for the perfect replacement.

And, after you've completed that list, start to consider some of the things that you must have in your new one. For example, if you are concerned about budget, you may want to consider buying something pre-owned.

If you frequently found yourself without enough space for passengers or cargo, it may be time for something larger. No matter your needs, we are certain to have something that fits your personality.
