Find Your Car’s Trade-In Car Value

Before you can trade in your vehicle, you will need to find out how much it’s worth. Fortunately for drivers near Hoover and Meadowbrook, Riverchase Kia offers an online tool to help with that. Simply enter your car’s year, make, and model, along with your name, email, and phone number. You will also be asked to provide information about the vehicle’s condition. When all of the required information is entered, you will receive the estimated value of your car. You can research the value of your vehicle further with resources like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®

Have Your Vehicle Appraised 

Before you can receive your trade-in offer, the vehicle will need to be appraised in person. Our experts will examine your car’s condition from top to bottom while also taking into consideration our current used inventory to ensure that we can sell the vehicle. When you visit us for the appraisal, remember to bring your trade-in value estimate (as well as any other trade-in offers you may have received) for our reference.

Finalize the Offer

When the appraisal process is complete, you will be presented with an offer. You have the option to try and negotiate further, reject the offer, or accept it as is. Why should you trade your vehicle in at a dealership like Riverchase Kia? It has many perks, such as:

  • The ability to negotiate: The first offer you’re given isn’t necessarily set in stone, and you can choose to haggle up based on the trade-in value research you’ve done. 
  • The ability to consolidate your loan: If you owe more on your current loan than your vehicle is worth, dealerships give you the opportunity to consolidate what you owe with the price of your new car.
