How to Get the Most Value for Your Trade-In

August 12th, 2021 by


If you’re out there driving around in a dusty ride you don’t quite love anymore, Carter Chevrolet presents an alternative to staying on your grind. You could take that car, truck, or SUV and trade it in at our dealership — the process is EZ PZ, and it puts you a step closer to a stylish new Chevy. Want to get the most value out of your trade-in in Okarche? Here are a few ideas.

Do Your Homework

If there’s anything we’ve learned from self-help gurus, it’s that it’s important to know your worth. Same goes for trade-in value. Before you even think about setting up a meeting with your boys at Carter Chevrolet, do a bit of homework yourself. You can use resources like CARFAX® to estimate the value of your vehicle, or you could get an instant estimate from us. This’ll give you an idea of how much you can expect to get from your ride.

Clean It Up

A great way to boost the value of your vehicle when trading it in is to enhance its curb appeal. Give it a nice loving wash and wax before you bring it to Carter Chevrolet. The inside is just as important, so consider going all out with upholstery cleaning, shampooing, steam cleaning, or whatever you think will give it that showroom-quality sheen. Do they make an air spray that smells like hot fried chicken? If they do, spritz some of that around in there. It might help around these parts.

Whatever you’re working with, you’ll get a fair trade-in value from your pals at Carter Chevrolet in Okarche, Oklahoma. You can then use that cash to put toward that hot new ride you’ve got your eye on, whether it’s a bold Blazer, a stout Silverado 1500, or a cool Camaro.
