How Dealers Value Your Trade in Punta Gorda, FL

Trading in your current vehicle has never been more simple when you work with us. Our convenient online trade-in tool, powered by Kelley Blue Book®, will give us your car's value in less than a minute. But you might be wondering how the trade-in process works. While this service uses an algorithm based on Blue Book® Values that considers many factors (like make, model, age, mileage, etc.), there are a couple of things that you need to be aware of that also affect the value of your car. Keep reading to learn more about how exactly dealers value your trade and what you can do to up the value of your vehicle.


Your Vehicle’s

The fewer things that our team has to do to make your car sales-worthy — like interior cleaning, touching up exterior paint, minor repairs, etc. — the more it’s worth to us. You’ll most likely want to wash, vacuum and detail your car, SUV or truck before driving down to our dealership to confirm your online quote. A clean, presentable vehicle will sell more quickly than a dirty, unkempt one.

Our Current

We consider what's in our current inventory when we look at trade-in models. So, for example, if you’d like to sell us your Lincoln Continental and we have a lot of Lincoln Continental models that have not yet sold, then our trade-in price most likely won’t be what you want. But if we believe that the likelihood of a sale for your vehicle is high, you’ll see our trade-in quote potentially climb higher.
