Get Your Trade-In Car Value

When learning how to trade in a car around Morgantown, you can easily get things done with our convenient online trade-in value tool. Simply enter vital details such as your car’s year, make, model, your name, email, and phone number and our team will take care of finding out how much your vehicle is worth. You’ll also be required to provide information on your vehicle’s condition, to give a more accurate assessment. Once you have the form completed and submitted, you’ll receive the estimated value of your car, and you can even compare it with other resources such as Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®.

Get an Appraisal

Now that you’ve had your vehicle valued, you’ll also need to have it appraised by our certified team of technicians who will take several important factors into consideration to deliver an accurate offer. Be sure to have your trade-in value estimate on hand as we look to appraise your car in terms of the following:

  • Mileage
  • Mechanical condition
  • Car features
  • Exterior/Interior condition
  • Market landscape
  • Current used inventory

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

After you have your car appraised by one of our experts, you can accept our offer outright or negotiate to close the deal. At Dan Cava's Buick GMC we aim to ensure an easy and enjoyable trade-in process, and offer other great advantages such as:

  • Unlike many Grafton-area used-car retailers, you can negotiate with a dealership like Dan Cava's Buick GMC. The first offer you’re given isn’t necessarily set in stone, and you can choose to haggle up based on the trade-in value research you’ve done.
  • If you’re upside down on your auto loan and wish to consolidate what you owe with the price of your new car, a dealership can help you do that.
  • Once you have accepted the offer, you can finalize your trade for cash, or put the car’s value toward buying a new car.
