Estimate Your Car’s Value

The first step of how to trade in your car is learning how much your car is worth. How much can you get for your car? Find out by using our trade-in valuation tool, which will give you a highly accurate estimate. For outside references, refer to sites like Kelley Blue Book or Edmunds True Market Value®. Simply navigate to the site, answer a few basic questions about your vehicle, and get an estimate. Once you have a few estimates, Milton drivers can bring them to our dealership for help with negotiating.

Prepare Your Vehicle for Inspection

You can optimize how much your vehicle is worth before the inspection in order to maximize its value. That said, you’ll need to decide which opportunities to fix up your vehicle are cost-effective, and which aren’t, given the estimated value of your vehicle. For instance, if the repair your vehicle needs is major and likely to cost more than the car is worth, it’s better to sell the car as-is. If a major repair is cost-effective, we recommend having it taken care of in advance, as you’ll still come out on top.

As for the little fixes, absolutely clean your vehicle and have its upholstery detailed (if necessary). Don’t worry about small maintenance, however. A car that’s slightly overdue for an oil change or windshield wiper replacement is worth the same as a car that’s just been tuned up.

Get a Quote

Now that you know how much you can get for your car according to third parties, the next step of how to trade in your car is to bring your car to our dealership. Our mechanics will take a look at the estimates you’ve brought, and then look over the car to determine its condition. We’ll give you a quote, which is exactly what we’ll pay for your car should Mississauga drivers trade in their old car at Mercedes-Benz Burlington.

Prequalify for Financing

Visit our finance page or your local financial institution to prequalify for financing before you visit the dealership. Prequalification will let you know how much car you can afford and get a better idea of how far that trade-in will take you. It’s also a great way for those with less than perfect credit to see the impact of their FICO score and decide how they want to proceed in private.
