Get Your Trade-In Car Value

The first step to learning how to trade in your car is to use our online calculator. To get started, you’ll need to know your car’s year, make, and model, plus provide your name, email, and phone number. From there, the next step is to enter the condition of your vehicle, and then you’ll receive an estimate for the value of your trade-in near Nashua. You can also use Kelley Blue Book® Value or Edmunds True Market Value® to get an estimate on your trade-in vehicle.

Get an Appraisal

Knowing how to trade in your car using online tools is important, but appraisals are, too. Once you get your car’s estimated value, the team at Tulley Mazda will appraise your vehicle to better determine its condition before making an offer. Our specialists look for things like mechanical issues, how many miles are on your car, its maintenance history, and the condition of the interior and exterior.

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

What’s my trade-in value, and is it negotiable? Once you have your trade-in appraised, you can choose to accept the offer or counter it. Prepare to negotiate as the dealer may not wish to accept your counter offer. You should do extensive research on your own ahead of time to make your haggling more successful. Once you have agreed on a trade-in price, you can choose to accept cash or put the value of your trade-in toward your new vehicle purchase.

Special Financing

If you’re worried about how you’ll get approved for financing with your less than stellar credit score, then special financing may be an important consideration. Special financing offers include loan options for car shoppers with low or no credit history. If you decide that special financing is an option you’d like to pursue, then be prepared to pay a higher interest rate and a greater monthly payment than customers with higher credit scores. You can also negotiate for a lower interest rate by showing an upward curve in your credit history and proof of steady employment.
