Value Your Trade

What’s Your Car Worth? – Burlington Volkswagen in Burlington, NJ

Here at Burlington Volkswagen, we understand the desire among most vehicle owners to upgrade to a newer or nicer vehicle when the time is right. Part of our efforts to provide the best experience for you is the trade-in and trade-up mindset. Many people are only worried about getting into their new car, so they will let a dealership underpay for the vehicle being traded-in. Using our value your trade tool, you will get a real, fair valuation of your vehicle from your home.


Discovering Your Vehicle’s Real Value

These days people have busier lives than ever before. Because of this, you may find it difficult to make time to go to a dealership to get a valuation done. With Burlington VW you can use our online tool to get a trade price in minutes. Fill out our trade-in form with details about your vehicle, and we will make an offer on the vehicle.

Upon coming to our dealership, we will go over the vehicle to make sure that the condition is the same as stated in the form that you filled out. If so, you have two different routes you can take. You can outright sell us your vehicle without buying anything. Your other option is to trade it in on a different vehicle of your choice. We almost always have a wide selection of cars, trucks, and SUVs with a near guarantee you can drive away in the perfect vehicle for you.

Benefits of Trading In over Selling Privately

When you are facing the decision between selling your vehicle privately or at the dealership, you should weigh your options and go with the one that works best for you. Your friends at Burlington VW are here to help get you into the right vehicle for you no matter what.

Choosing to trade your car in overselling it privately saves you the time and hassle of negotiating a fair price. When taking it to the dealership, you can skip these steps and take the fair offer that we give you.

How Do You Trade in a Car?

After you’ve received your trade-in estimate, it’s time for an appraisal of your vehicle! Our Burlington dealership can take care of this step for you. We’ll examine the condition of your car and make sure it’s a good fit for our used car inventory. When you visit for your car’s appraisal, be sure to bring your trade-in estimate!

You can haggle at a dealership. We encourage our customers to always do their own research to make sure they’re getting the most reasonable trade-in offers.
Can you trade in a car you still owe on? You can with a dealership. If you’re upside down on your car loan, you can consolidate what’s owed on your current car with the price of your new ride.

Value Your Trade-In: FAQs

Q: Can you trade in a financed car?

A: Yes, you can. If you have positive equity on the car (as in it’s worth more than what you currently owe), you can trade it in easily. The dealer will purchase the car and pay off the loan, then they’ll put what’s left toward the new vehicle price, giving you a major advantage. If you have negative equity on the car (as in it’s worth less than what you currently owe), the dealer may still buy the car and pay off the loan, but the difference will be rolled into your new car loan — meaning you’ll still need to pay it off eventually.

Q: How soon can you trade in a financed car?

A: There’s no time limit that’s set in stone, but it’s a good idea to wait until you have positive equity.

Q: What does it mean to be “upside-down” on a car loan?

A: Being “upside down” on a car loan is the same thing as having negative equity. If, for example, you owe $30,000 on a car that’s worth $25,000, you have negative equity

Q: Can I trade in my car for a cheaper car?

A: If you still owe money on the car, you can trade it in for a cheaper one. If, for example, you owe $15,000 and the car is worth $20,000, the dealer can purchase the car as a trade-in, pay off the loan, and put the $5,000 toward your new auto loan as equity. If you don’t owe money on the car and own it outright, there’s nothing stopping you from trading it in for a cheaper car; you can do what you’d like with it.
