Once complete, we’ll show you the value of your car, truck, or SUV based on the fair market price, which considers demand, condition, and other factors. By giving you access to the same data and process we use to value vehicles, you can rest easy knowing you’re always getting top dollar for your trade.

Have questions? We have answers! Here’s everything you need to know about valuing your trade with DePaula Auto Group.

Can I Trade My Vehicle If It’s Financed?

Yes! You’ll need to gather a few key details about the lender and your loan before visiting one of our dealerships. For example, we’ll need the lender’s contact information and the final payoff on the loan. This information is vital because it tells you how much you need to get for your trade to satisfy the loan.

Where Can I Find the Vehicle Identification Number?

You’ll need the vehicle identification number (VIN) to value your trade and complete the trade-in process. You can find the VIN imprinted on the bottom of the dashboard, visible from the windshield on the driver’s side. You can also find it on a sticker placed on the driver’s side door jamb, your state vehicle registration document, and your insurance card.

How Can I Be Certain I’m Getting Top Dollar?

We want you to have confidence in your trade, so we give you access to the same data we use with our 10-Second Trade-In tool. In addition, you can compare this offer to sites like Kelley Blue Book, which provides individuals with trade-in and fair market values based on the condition, age, and location of a vehicle. Kelley Blue Book values are also a great place to start negotiations. They’re especially helpful if your trade-in vehicle is financed, giving you a better idea of how much to expect for your trade compared to the final loan payoff.

How Do I Prepare My Vehicle?

You don’t have to do anything special to prepare your vehicle. All we ask is that you remove any personal items from the car, truck, or SUV once you accept the offer and we finalize the trade.

What Documents Do I Need to Bring to the Dealership?

You’ll need your driver’s license or government-issued photo ID and vehicle registration. If you own the vehicle, you’ll need to bring the title; or if it’s financed, you’ll need the lender information. You’ll also need to gather all keys, manuals, and service or repair records.
