If you’re ready to purchase a new vehicle, you may also have a Mercedes-Benz to trade-in. Trading-in your current vehicle can either put some more cash in your pocket, or knock some off the total of your new vehicle. Wondering how to trade in your car so you can use this to your advantage? Review Fletcher Jones Motorcars’s guide on how to trade-in a car, and then start the process with our online value your trade-in tool! 

Value Your Trade-In

If you’re asking yourself how to trade-in your car, the first step is assessing your car’s value. This can be done quickly and easily online using Fletcher Jones Motorcars’s value your trade tool. You’ll just need to input some basic information like your car’s year, make, and model. You’ll also need to include your name, email, and phone number. From there, you’ll receive the estimated value of your car. If you want to compare our offer to other reliable resources, you can find similar online estimates from tolls like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®

Schedule an Appraisal

Now that you have some estimates for comparison, you can also choose to bring your vehicle into our dealership near Costa Mesa for an in-person appraisal. During your appraisal, our expert technicians will examine your vehicle inside and out to determine its condition. We’ll also compare your vehicle to the ones on our lot to ensure we can sell your vehicle. At this point, we’ll be able to give you a firm offer for your vehicle. 

Decide Whether to Accept Your Offer

Once you have an offer, you can decide whether you want to decline the offer, negotiate for a better price, or accept the offer you’ve received. At Fletcher Jones Motorcars, we make the process easy, and don’t require any commitment from you. In fact, you’ll have your offer locked in for 7 days or 150 miles, whichever comes first. While this is convenient, trading-in a vehicle to a dealership can also provide you with other benefits, like helping you out if you’re upside down on your vehicle. 

If you decide to accept the offer, you’ll need to bring in your keys, title, registration, and driver’s license. We’ll complete some paperwork, and then we’ll take your keys and offer you a check or credit toward a new car purchase.
