Whether it’s time to get a new car because your existing one isn’t cutting it anymore, or you know that it’s time for an upgrade, when you come to Patriot Auto Group, you get the best of the best.

You likely know that we have the latest models from the world’s top brands, like Buick, GMC, and Chevrolet. You probably also know that we have a state-of-the-art service center that’s perfectly equipped to get you and your vehicle back on the road promptly. But, did you also know that we’ll help you trade-in your car?

Trading in your existing car is one of the best and easiest ways to both get rid of your old car and save on your new model. Here at Patriot Auto Group, we can help. However, while we can help you value your trade right from our website, there are some things you should take into account when trading in your vehicle.

Before You Trade-In

Before you bring in your vehicle to trade, you’ll want to make sure that everything you want to keep is out of your car. This can be anything from clothing to your air freshener. Next, just like when selling a house, you want to present your car best. That’s why we recommend getting it professionally cleaned, inside and out. You’ll also want to think about getting any small damages repaired as they could depreciate your vehicle’s value more than the cost of repair.

Finally, before you bring in your vehicle for a trade-in, be sure to check your vehicle’s value online. We have a tool to help you do this, but we also welcome other estimates and will do everything we can to offer you the most accurate deal possible.
