Determining Your Trade-In Car Value

When learning how to trade in a car with a dealership around Rock Island, it’s a good idea to understand what your vehicle is worth. Thankfully, Green Family Hyundai makes this a simple step with our Value Your Trade tool that allows you to enter your vehicle’s specifics to determine a value. Along with your car’s year, make, and model, you can add information about the vehicle’s condition and features to estimate the value of your current vehicle. It’s also helpful to use other online resources like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value® to do more research into the specifics of your model.

Stop in for an Appraisal

After you’ve established an estimated trade-in value, visit our Moline dealership for an appraisal. Our team will evaluate your vehicle’s condition and weigh it against our inventory of used vehicles to determine whether we can sell the vehicle. Be sure to bring in any research you’ve done along with the trade-in value estimate for our reference.

Accepting or Negotiating a Trade-In Offer

Once we’ve offered the appraisal, you have the option to accept the offer and complete the deal or you can negotiate based on the research you’ve done. Learning how to trade in your car can be a simple and straightforward process at a dealership. Other advantages of trading in a car to a dealer like Green Family Hyundai include:

  • We don’t shy away from negotiating. While other Milan-area used-car retailers offer prices set in stone, you have the opportunity to ask for a better price based on the research you’ve done at Green Family Hyundai.
  • When you still owe a balance on your auto loan, a dealership can help you consolidate what you owe while still taking home the model you have your eye on.

From there, you can accept the offer for cash or put the vehicle’s value towards a new Hyundai model.
