Every trade-in will need to be inspected for prospective troubles and safety concerns. In most cases, there will likely be expenses related to making sure the trade-in is prepared to be sold in a safe condition. In addition, if your car isn’t paid off you’ll need to ensure that the dealership will pay off your trade-in balance in any type of agreement. Every one of those items costs money, so your best option is to figure out the trade-in value, and search our cars for something near that value.

The traditional wisdom is that you’ll obtain more cash if you sell your vehicle outright and then buy a vehicle from the car dealership. Nonetheless, that may not really be true because in most states the sales tax obligation collected on an automobile acquisition is determined after your trade-in has been factored in. As an example, the car you want to buy is $30k and if you acquire it outright you pay taxes on the complete $30,000 price. If we offer you $15k for your trade-in, then you would be in charge of the taxes on the $15k remaining on the price. The taxes would be literally be halved. So, while you may be able to get more cash by selling it yourself, the lower taxes and simplicity of trading it here can offset all added money you would get.
