If you’re wondering how to trade-in your car, then you must be in the market for a new car.

Follow the steps below to learn how to trade-in a car, then visit us in Morgantown near Fairmont to browse our new vehicles.

Get Your Trade-In Car Value

The first step in the trade-in process is to value your trade online. You can use our convenient trade-in tool, Edmunds True Market Value®, or Kelley Blue Book® Value. Enter your vehicle’s age, condition, make, and model, then the tool will calculate the market value of your used car. If you trade-in your vehicle through University Toyota, you can opt to apply that value directly to your new or used vehicle purchase.

Get an Appraisal

After you receive a trade-in estimate, drive over to University Toyota in Morgantown to get your vehicle appraised by our service team. We’ll inspect all areas of your car and verify its condition. Bring the estimate you received from valuing your trade online, as that will help you negotiate if, for some reason, the estimate you received differs from ours.

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

Once our service team has completed their inspection, we will give you an offer for your trade-in vehicle. You can choose to accept it outright or submit a counter-offer for consideration. Our process is straightforward, adding to the benefits of trading in your car at the dealership.

  • University Toyota offers room for customers to haggle a better price for their trade-in car.
  • If your past auto loan payments are piling up, you can choose to consolidate what you owe to your new car loan.

Once you’ve settled on an offer, we can offer cash, or put it toward the price of your new car.
