Luckily, you don’t have to go through any hassle to find out what your vehicle is worth when you use our trade-in value tool at Westbrook Toyota. All you have to do is enter your vehicle’s year, make, and model. You’ll then enter your name, email, phone number, and other information about your vehicle. You’ll then receive an estimate of your vehicle’s trade-in value.

Appraise Your Vehicle

After you’ve determined what your vehicle is worth, you’ll need to get an appraisal. You can save time from searching all over Madison for an appraisal and visit Westbrook Toyota. We can examine your vehicle inside and out to determine its condition. We’ll also consider our used inventory to see if we can actually sell the vehicle. You’ll want to be sure to bring your trade-in estimate and other offers for reference when you visit us.

Final Offer: Negotiate or Accept

Once we’ve appraised your vehicle, you can either accept our offer or negotiate for a lower price. One of the benefits of trading in a vehicle at a dealership is that this process is pretty straightforward. You can also put any remaining amounts on your current loan and consolidate it with the price of your new car when you trade at a Clinton dealership. Once you have accepted an offer, you can take your trade for cash or put the car’s value towards a new car.
