Get Your Trade-In Car Value

When learning how to trade in a car, the first step is to get an estimate of how much your vehicle is worth. This is quite easy around Fitchburg since you can use our value your trade tool to get an estimate of your vehicle’s value. Just enter information such as the make, model, year, and mileage, and leave us some contact information, such as your email address, name, and phone number. You could also use trusted tools, such as Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®.

Get an Appraisal

The next step in learning how to sell a car is to head over to Ron Bouchard Kia for an appraisal. Our experts will take a look at the overall condition of your vehicle, and determine whether we can sell it based on our current used inventory. It’s important to bring your trade-in value to the appraisal as this allows you to negotiate your offer.

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

One of the advantages of selling to a dealer is that you’re able to negotiate after being given an initial offer. We make this entire process quite simple, which is one of the many advantages of selling your car to a dealer. Here are some of the benefits you can expect:

  • Ron Bouchard Kia allows our customers to negotiate their initial offer, as opposed to a traditional used car dealership, where it is more difficult to haggle a final price. This is why it’s also critical to bring along your trade in value, and any additional research.
  • In the case that you’re upside down on your loan, you can consolidate the price of the loan with that of your new car.

Once you’re comfortable with your appraisal offer, you can accept and either trade it in for a new-to-you vehicle such as a used Kia Forte or accept the cash.
