Value Your Trade Online

If you’re looking for an easy and convenient way to figure out what your current car is worth, we have the solution for you. You won’t need to leave the couch either. Simply tell us a bit about your car and we’ll give you an estimated value.

The details we need include:

  • Make and model
  • Model year
  • Miles
  • Condition

Once you enter that information, you’ll get an approximate value for your car. This lets you know what your options are and what to expect during your visit to the dealership.

After you have your trade-in appraised online, visit us. We’ll take a look to verify your car’s condition. After that, you’ll have the choice between cash and a trade-in credit. It’s easy to get this process started thanks to our helpful web tools!


Our 5-Minute Appraisal Process

When you bring your trade-in car to our dealership, we’ll check out your ride and learn more about it to give you a great offer. In just a few short minutes, our appraisal experts will learn more about your car and give you an offer for it.

It’s as easy as these simple steps:

  • Exterior evaluation: We take a look and see how things look from the outside. The fewer scratches and imperfections, the better.
  • Interior evaluation: Next, we’ll see what condition the inside of the car is in. A clean and comfortable cabin will increase the value.
  • Drivability: Here, we test out the performance and the capability of your car. It helps us know what state the engine and the other mechanical parts are in.
  • Cosmetic and mechanical repairs: If necessary, we’ll provide light tune-ups and fixes to further increase your car’s value.
