  3. Negotiate and accept a fair offer

Step 1: Research Your Car’s Value

Knowledge is power so you will want to gather as much information as possible before you attempt to negotiate. Online resources like Kelley Blue Book or our convenient Trade Value tool offer a chance to see your car’s trade-in value and the going rate for similar vehicles.

Any source will offer you an estimated value based on your car’s make, model, year, maintenance report, and current condition.

Step 2: Get an Appraisal

Your daily commute may take you from Collinsville to Broken Arrow or you may be an adventurous off-road driver! No matter how or where you like to drive, your odds of being able to trade your car in for a fair value are much better if you keep up with regular maintenance needs.

Your appraisal may be different than estimates you found online due to the specifics of your vehicle, surprises can be avoided if you are honest about your car’s condition when looking for estimates.

Step 3: Negotiate and Accept a Fair Offer

Doing your homework comes in handy at this stage; it can help you negotiate the best deal possible! If you accept the offer you can put the cash straight in your pocket or use that money towards the purchase of your new vehicle. If you are looking to buy a new car you will want to apply for financing, even if your credit isn’t the best. You also may be curious about meeting requirements before you make a purchase.
