Trading your vehicle in New Jersey takes more than just driving your car and waiting for an offer to come up. Trading your vehicle requires careful consideration and exceptional attention to detail. Some of the things you should do when deciding whether to trade in your car include:
This is one of the most critical aspects of trading a car. Many people don’t realize there are ways to make sure you are getting a fair price for your vehicle. For instance, if you are selling or trading your car, you should consult a trusted source of information like Kelley Blue Book (KBB).
KBB offers a comprehensive online pricing guide that considers several factors. All it takes is to provide necessary information on your vehicle including its year, model, make, mileage, and other information. Once you have filled in the required fields, KBB will provide you with your car’s current market value. With this number, you can have an idea of how much you can trade your car for. At Apollo Preowned Auto we use KBB guidelines to make sure you are getting a fair value on your trade-in.
If you wish to trade in your car, you need to do some research first. Going into a car dealership to trade your vehicle blindly makes no sense. Instead, ask for a quote from different dealers. This can help you have an idea of how close they are to your car’s current market value and see which offer is the best. At Apollo Preowned Auto we understand how the process works, and we make sure to honestly appraise your vehicle to provide you with the best value possible.
Once you have all the information and have chosen the right dealership, it’s time to seal the deal. Your dealership will deduct the value of your car from your new purchase, and you’ll be ready to hit the road on your new vehicle. Make sure there are no pending payments on your car. If you still owe money from a previous car loan, the process may be longer and more complicated.
For instance, owing money from a previous car loan means your dealer may need to negotiate with your financial institution to pay off your remaining debt. However, this does not mean your debt is extinguished. The money you owed to your former lender will be added to your new car’s price. In other words, you’d still be paying off your debt to your current lender.
At Apollo Preowned Auto, we can guide you through the entire process to avoid any potential complications during your trade-in process.
Yes! Part of the trade-in process involves the presentation of specific documentation pertaining to your car. For instance, you will need to show your car’s title, or “pink slip,” to let the car dealer know you are the legal owner of the vehicle. Additionally, you will need to show your vehicle’s registration. Furthermore, your driver’s license may be a requirement in the trade in process. Once you have confirmed all your documents, the dealer will ask for all existing car keys related to your car.
Having these documents on hand can make or break the whole experience. Make sure all your paperwork is up to date to avoid complications at any point during your trade-in. At Apollo Auto, we can guide you through the entire process so you don’t have to worry.
