Earnhardt Lexus may be interested in buying your car. In fact, we are willing to buy your car even if you are not interested in purchasing from us at this time. Trading in your vehicle is a simple process that requires nothing more than ID and the proper paperwork. So, what exactly do you need to trade in a car? Keep reading to get the whole list.
By the way, we recommend making it easy on yourself by finding out what your car is worth before you come to the dealership. You can do that by using this tool: Kelley Blue Book Valuation. It’s an independent system that provides our customers and our company with the most appropriate trade in value for a car today. That’s why it is only good for seven days, just in case something were to change.
Title and Registration. These two legal documents, issued by your state of residence, must be in your name. If the title has two signatures, both people must be present. The Arizona DMV website has Arizona registration and title information.
Valid Driver’s License. Obviously, you will need your driver’s license so that your identification can be verified. The name and address must match the registration and title.
Loan Information: If a loan exists, you can still sell your car. The loan information is needed for the dealership to check with the lender. When you make the sale to Earnhardt, the loan will be paid off first, and the remaining amount will be yours to keep.
Maintenance and Service Records. Many sellers find they can get the best valuation by providing complete maintenance and service records.
In the private market, you will have to wait for a buyer and haggle on prices. At Earnhardt Lexus, the Kelley Blue Book valuation tool is a surefire way to get a solid offer today. With just a few clicks, you’ll know what your car is worth on today’s market. If you are willing to accept the price, it is easy to bring the certificate with you to the dealership. This can be done electronically if you can’t print it out.
At that point, we will doublecheck to make sure everything matches up to the year, make, model and condition reported to Kelley Blue Book through the independent tool. Assuming all is accurate, you will receive a check upon surrendering your clear title to the vehicle.
Trading in a vehicle is not a complicated process as long as you are the rightful owner of your vehicle and have all of the paperwork that a dealership needs to purchase it from you.
This is a good time for trading in your vehicle. There’s a growing demand for used cars at new car dealers. Give our system a try, and call us or contact us online if you have any questions. We look forward to doing business with you.
