Finance Agreement

Trading in your car at the dealership can save you a lot of unnecessary hassles, such as posting a listing, negotiating offers, and more. What’s more, when you trade in your car at a dealership like Atlanta Autos, you can put the funds you receive toward the purchase of a used vehicle from our inventory. Our sales and finance teams are here to help you along the way! Read on to learn more about how to trade in a car. 

Learn Your Car’s Value 

First, you’ll want to figure out how much your car’s worth. Atlanta Autos can help with that step! You can use our trade-in value estimator to determine what your car’s worth, based on current market values. Simply enter your car’s year, make, and model, as well as your name and contact information. You can add even more information about the vehicle’s condition. If you you’d like to do research on your own, you can use tools like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®

Receive an Appraisal

After you’ve gotten a trade-in estimate for your car, bring it to Atlanta Autos in Marietta to obtain an appraisal. Our certified technicians will take a closer look at your car — inside and out — and compare it to others in our used inventory to determine whether we can sell it at our location. If you have other trade-in value estimates or offers that you’ve received from other sources, be sure to bring them with you. 

Negotiate or Close the Deal

Our team will complete an appraisal of your car, and you can choose to negotiate or accept our trade-in offer. We make trading in a car easy! What’s more, you’ll enjoy other advantages from the process, such as: 

  • You can negotiate. Our offers aren’t set in stone. So, you can haggle up, especially if you have other value estimates and trade-in offers on-hand. 
  • Are you upside down on your loan? Dealerships like Atlanta Autos can help you consolidate auto loans.
