Determining the Value of Your Trade-In Vehicle

Budgeting your finances is the first step if you need a new car. Szott Ford can help, and you don't have to visit our auto lot in Holly, MI until the day you buy your vehicle. You have many auto dealerships from which to choose in Clarkston, MI, but none will treat you more fairly than Szott Ford.

Start with Our Online Trade Appraisal Tools

You can visit our website to use our online trade appraisal tool to obtain a rough estimate of your vehicle's trade-in value. We base this on make, model, year, and style. You provide the number of miles on the odometer, type of engine, and transmission, then estimate the vehicle's condition. These options mirror Kelley Blue Book - excellent, very good, good, and fair. Finally, you provide us with your contact information. We email you a trade-in value for your vehicle. You can use this method to obtain the value of your trade-in for any reason - outright sale, towards purchasing a new or used car.

Visit Our Lot After You Receive Your Estimate

You might receive more or less for the value of your vehicle. We'll examine your vehicle and check its VIN. Our examination by technicians and mechanics may uncover problems that decrease the value of your vehicle. We may also find out that you underestimated the value of your vehicle. You might humbly suggest that you maintain it in good condition. However, we may deem it in excellent condition. When this occurs, we increase the value of your trade-in based on the blue book values.

We also consider the cleanliness of your vehicle. You don't need to have it professionally detailed. You can clean it yourself. We look to ensure it has been vacuumed well and smells good. We check the seats and other upholstery to ensure they have no tears, pulls, or holes. We examine the dashboard and rear window board for holes or cracks.

Once we value your vehicle in person, you'll have it in writing. This lets you apply for loans knowing how much you'll need for purchase. When you apply a trade-in to purchase from our dealership serving Waterford, MI and Grand Blanc, NL, we subtract the amount of your trade-in from the total cost of the vehicle. That means you could knock a few thousand dollars off the price of your next vehicle. That changes the loan amount you need remarkably.

Finance Your New Vehicle

Szott Ford offers our customers a fair sale/trade deal regardless of where they reside in Clarkston, MI or Fenton, MI. We invite you to invest your vehicle's value toward purchasing something new or used.

Your trade-in isn't the only thing that can help you get into the car you want today. You can also obtain a loan through the finance center of Szott Ford.

While you visit our sales lot for your trade-in valuation and a test drive of the vehicle you want to buy, talk with one of our knowledgeable finance representatives. We help White Lake Charter Township, MI residents drive home the vehicle they need. Applying your trade-in to a new or used car purchase can more easily qualify for a loan. That's because you reduce the loan amount you need. This can also reduce the length of the loan.
