HOW DO YOU SELL OR TRADE IN A CAR?
After you’ve received your vehicle’s estimate, it’s time for an appraisal of your vehicle! Here at Land Rover Freeport, we 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 us on Long Island for your car’s appraisal, be sure to bring your trade-in estimate!
Once we’ve examined your car, you can negotiate or accept our offer and finalize the sale or trade. We pride ourselves on making the selling or trade-in process a simple and transparent exchange by offering the fairest possible offer.
CAR 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. Our dealership will purchase the car and pay off the loan, then we’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), we 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, we 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.
