Advice for Trading In a Car

Buying a new car can be stressful. One of the most difficult parts is trading in your old car. Trading your car can be a hassle, but it doesn’t have to be. At Trade-In Solutions, we make the process as easy as possible.

Unlike a dealer, our only business is to buy cars for cash. We don’t believe in haggling over your trade-in value. You won’t receive a low-ball offer from us. Years of experience has given us great customer service skills and the ability to make a fair, fast offer.

How does the process work? First, call us for an appointment to take your car to one of our locations for an appraisal. We accept walk-ins, but you may have a longer wait. Bring your title, registration, ID, and keys. If you don’t have your title or registration, we can look it up for you (In California). We are interested in cars from 2000 and newer and up to 120,000 miles. If your car has a loan, you will need a 10-day payoff quote and your financing information. We can take care of any repairs your car needs for less than it will cost you, so repairs are not a problem.

One of our appraisers will work with you to get the best price possible for your car. This takes about 45 minutes, including the paperwork. When you leave, you will know how much money you will get, and we will mail you the check through FedEx Standard Overnight.

Since you may want to shop around to get the best deal, Trade-In Solutions has a program called Everyday Offer Topper. We will do the best we can to beat your offer from another dealership. Just get a written copy of your offer and call us to talk about it. If it looks like we can beat it, fax or email us the offer, and we will get back to you fast with a decision.

Our goal is to earn your business by making your trade-in experience as simple as possible. Working with Trade-In Solutions is different from an auto dealership. With us, you can have your trade-in money in hand before you shop for a car. This lets you focus on finding the car that is right for you.
