Trade In Your Old Vehicle

When a customer trades in their old vehicle, we attempt to keep it simple. Our online trade-in form is safe and secure, and we use Kelley Blue Book® to provide our customers with an accurate estimate of their trade. This means you can feel confident that you're getting a good offer for your vehicle. We take pride in giving fair trade-in values, and we work hard to give our customers the maximum amount for what their vehicle is worth.

  • Documents for Trade-In (title, registration, current loan paperwork) 
  • All Sets of Trade-In Vehicle's Keys

What to Pay Attention to During Your Test Drive

While taking a car for a test drive is probably one of the more exhilarating steps in buying a vehicle, you should remember to take your time and pay attention to how it drives and feels. Take note of any must-have features and make sure the car checks off all the boxes on your list. If you have questions, you can always call us.

  • Get comfortable in the driver's seat 
  • Pay attention to the feel of the ride 
  • Try out various features both inside and out
  • Test out the parking and visibility in different environments
  • Don't rush the test drive
