How to prepare your car for trade in

Before you come to trade in your car you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared. Here are the steps you need to check off your to-do list before you pull into our Clermont Toyota lot:

  • Research your car’s trade-in value. Knowing your car’s value ahead of time will help you determine if you’re happy with the deal our team puts on the table.
  • Get your car detailed. Doing a deep cleaning of the exterior and interior will make your car instantly worth more. Be sure to wax it as well. A coat of wax can make your paint job look brand new!
  • Fix any scratches, dents, or dings. You can correct cosmetic issues like these with very little effort and at a low cost.
  • Shampoo your interior carpets and upholstery to make your car smell fresh and stain-free.
  • Make sure you have all of your paperwork together and organized. You will be asked to provide any maintenance records as well as the car’s title. Also, remember to bring any spare keys you have to hand in.
  • Get all necessary repairs taken care of – brake pad replacements, old windshield wipers, or a burnt out headlight. These are small fixes that will raise the offer of your trade-in.

Once you have prepped your car, it’s time to head to Toyota of Clermont. Here is what to expect when you come to trade in your car:

  • When you pull into our lot find a salesperson and let them know you’re here for a trade-in. Be prepared to provide them your information and vehicle history report so they can put your car in the system.
  • Next, our Clermont used car director will collect your keys. Our service staff will conduct a thorough visual inspection of your car. From there, they’ll inspect under the hood and turn on your vehicle to ensure everything is running as it should. They may also take your car for a test drive if they feel it’s necessary.
  • Then, our team will determine the trade in value of your vehicle based on the information they pull and the current condition of the car.
  • Finally, we’ll make you an offer. If you are pleased with the offer and decide you don’t want to trade up with us, we can provide a full cash payout right then and there.
