Estimate Your Vehicle’s Trade-In Value

If you’re just beginning to learn how to trade in a car, no worries — we’re happy to guide you through the process step-by-step. Before you bring your car to our dealership for an official appraisal, we recommend getting an estimated value to help plan your budget

You can get an instant estimate using our online Value Your Trade tool. Enter the make and model of your car, along with details about its condition and your contact information. The Kelley Blue Book Value® and Edmunds True Market Value® tools also offer instant trade-in value estimates free of charge. It’s a good idea to get multiple estimates to gain a good sense of what your car is worth.

Get Your Car Appraised

Once you’ve estimated your vehicle’s trade-in value, you can head over to a Navarre-area dealership for an appraisal. At Allen Turner Genesis, certified Genesis technicians will examine your vehicle’s condition and features carefully to determine whether it is a good fit for our used vehicle inventory. Remember to bring your trade-in value estimate to the appraisal, just in case you need it to negotiate.

Negotiate or Accept Our Trade-In Offer

With the appraisal complete, we will make you an offer for you to sell us your car. You may accept the offer, negotiate for a higher offer, or have your car appraised at another dealership. Trading in and selling your car to a dealership like Allen Turner Genesis makes it far easier to upgrade to a new vehicle by streamlining the entire process. Other benefits include:

  • Many Mobile, AL-area used car dealerships do not allow you to negotiate for a better offer. tIf your trade-in value research suggests a higher value for your vehicle, we’re happy to work with you.
  • If you owe more on your trade-in car than it is currently worth, we can help you to consolidate what you owe with the price of your new car.

Once you accept an offer, you may choose to receive cash for your trade-in or put the trade-in value toward the cost of a new car.
