Find Your Trade-In Car Value

First thing first, you will need to figure out how much your car is estimated to be worth in the Winterhaven area. While the process of how to trade in a car is simple, you still need to make sure you are getting the most out of it! Use our value-your-trade calculator or one of the reputable online sources, like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®, to see your car’s value. 

Get an Appraisal in Lakeland 

With your trade-in value, you can now go to Regal Honda for an appraisal. Our team will inspect your car for the condition and consider our current selection to see how much we will offer you. We will also go over some paperwork and go over your car’s history report as well! 

Negotiate or Accept the Trade-In Offer

At this stage, you will receive an offer from us and you can choose to accept or negotiate it. The steps on how to trade in a car are that simple and when you work with a dealership, you can negotiate the offer amount until you’re satisfied. Plus, our finance team can also help you with other auto financing issues you may have in Plant City, whether it may trading in a financed car or securing the best financing plans with a bad credit score.
