How to Trade In a Car

couple speaking to car salesman

Learning how to trade in a car is easier than you might expect, and the whole process can be completed in the space of an afternoon. Here’s what you should expect:

  1. Estimate your vehicle’s value.
  2. Schedule an appraisal at a dealership.
  3. Negotiate or accept your offer.
  4. Leave with cash or apply the value to another vehicle.

Trading in your current vehicle is really that easy! Explore the steps in greater detail below, or contact us now to get started.



Get Your Trade-In Car Value

If you don’t take the time to determine your vehicle’s true worth, you could end up getting burned. We’ve made it easy to value your trade-in online. You’ll just need to enter some basic information about your vehicle’s mileage, features, and condition. Still, it’s also a good idea to take each of the following steps:

  1. Cross reference the estimate that you receive from our dealership with estimates from Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®. We want you to get every penny that your vehicle is worth!
  2. Do your research and find out how much money similar vehicles have sold for in the past.
  3. Print out your estimates and have them ready when you visit your local Bedford or Beachwood dealership for an appraisal.


Get an Appraisal

Be wary of any online service that claims to make you an instant offer. Most ‘instant’ services hedge their bets by paying out less than the vehicles are really worth. By contrast, a real in-person inspection benefits the driver who has taken good care of their vehicle. Wondering what to bring when you trade in a car? Here’s a complete list:

  • Vehicle title
  • Current vehicle registration
  • Driver’s license
  • Keys and manuals
  • Loan payoff information

Our team can appraise your vehicle today, and the whole process usually takes less than an hour. Although you don’t need an appointment, we can offer a more streamlined experience to the driver who calls ahead in advance. Contact us online or reach out at (440) 359-6821.

Are you still paying off your loan? Trading in a financed car requires a little more work, but it’s far from impossible.


Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

Some used car dealerships will bar you from negotiating your trade-in offer, but this isn’t the case at Mercedes-Benz of Bedford. So, once you’ve received the results of your appraisal, you can use the estimates you’ve acquired to make sure you’re getting the money you deserve. 

Additionally, our offers are not contingent on whether or not you buy a vehicle off our lot. You can choose to take cash for your vehicle or apply the value to your next purchase. We’ll help you finance the remainder
