Trading Your Vehicle

If you’re looking into buying a new car, trading in your vehicle can be a convenient and cost-effective way to upgrade. Stay ahead and save the headache of guesswork by reading our tips. That way, you can get the most out of your trade-in experience.

Do Your Research

Before you decide to trade in your car, it is essential to understand the current market value of your vehicle. 

McGavock’s Car Estimate Calculator is a fantastic tool for quickly estimating your vehicle’s worth. Its expansive database can find your car’s value within seconds! All you need to do is plug in your vehicle’s make and model, and you’ll have the numbers in no time. By doing your research, you’ll be sure to find a fair offer during the negotiation process.

Prep Your Car

You want your vehicle to look nice and run smoothly before you trade it in, so take the time to deep-clean it! Vacuuming, wiping down the interior, or adding an air freshener can make all the difference. Of course, you also want to maintain your car by fixing any major or minor mechanical issues that could lower its value. You want only offers that will benefit you, so it’s essential to make an effort!


Schedule an appointment with the dealership and remember all sets of keys, your vehicle registration, and the title. Your dealer will review the information you provide to ensure everything is accurate. 

The dealer will give you an offer for your vehicle. However, remember to speak up when you think the price is too low. Then, back up your statement with the research you bring in. 

Talk to the dealer about every aspect of the deal before making a decision. Once you and the dealer agree on the value of the trade and new vehicle, you can sign and drive home in your new Nissan!
