Trade In Your Car in Englewood, NJ

How to Trade In Your Car

Picking out your new vehicle and taking it for a test drive is probably going to be the most exciting part of your car-shopping experience—but finding out how much your current Jaguar is worth is bound to be pretty fun, too! After all, used cars are fetching higher prices than ever before, and that means that your current vehicle might be worth significantly more than you’d expect!

There are lots of different angles to consider when you’re learning how to trade in your car, but we’ve laid out everything you need to know before you drive in from Englewood or New York City:

  1. Start the process by doing a little research of your own. That’s where our trade-in valuation tool comes in! We’ve partnered with Kelley Blue Book® in order to provide accurate trade-in car valuations based on real-time market data.
  2. With that said, it doesn’t hurt to check out local dealership lots and find out how much models just like yours are currently selling for on the open market.
  3. Once you’ve got the basics, make a list of all the things that set your vehicle apart. Does it have a perfect maintenance history? Unique features? What about modifications that make it perfect for Jersey City and Fort Lee adventures? No matter where you take your trade-in car, you’ll want to know what makes it stand out.
  4. Recognize that making big repairs isn’t likely going to be worth your time. But if there are little things that you can do to improve your vehicle’s looks—such as repairing dents or detailing the interior, you might expect to see a higher return as a result of your extra effort.
  5. When you’re ready to sell, you’ll need to schedule an in-person appraisal with your local dealership—Jaguar Englewood! An expert will tell you about your Jaguar’s worth, but you’re generally free to negotiate if the offers and estimates that you’ve received are higher than your trade-in car’s price.
  6. If you’re still paying off your loan and owe more than your vehicle is worth, don’t give up hope. We can work out a plan to help you move forward.
