What Is a Trade-in?

Trade in InspectionA trade-in is a vehicle you offer a dealership in exchange for credit toward your next car purchase. A trade-in can cover the down payment of a new vehicle and lessen the amount you pay up front. First, you’ll need to know how much your trade-in is worth.

During this process, the condition of your trade-in is directly related to how much value it carries. Simply put, the better the condition of your trade-in, the better the offer.

Here are a few factors that are calculated in your offer:

  • How many miles are on the car
  • The make and model
  • Damage and accident reports
  • The vehicle’s popularity
  • Interior/exterior condition 

Benefits of a Trade-in

There are several reasons why shoppers participate in trade-in deals. Here are just some advantages:

  • Covering Down Payment/Lowering Monthly Bills: A trade-in offer can cover the cost of your new car’s down payment. If your trade-in has an even higher value, you can also put your extra credit toward your monthly payments. 
  • No Strings Attached: When you agree to a trade-in deal, you also agree to trading your vehicle in “as is” condition. That means there are no lingering questions or concerns you need to answer to, unlike reselling a vehicle on your own. 
  • Sales Tax Savings: When calculating your sales tax on your newly purchased vehicle, you’ll receive sales tax credit based on the value of your trade. For example, if you’re buying a new car for $25,000 and the dealership offers you $10,000 for your trade-in, you’ll pay sales tax only on the $15,000 difference!
