Get Your Trade-In Car Value

The first step is knowing your vehicle’s value. Kelley Automotive Group keeps this step quick and easy thanks to our value your trade tool. Simply enter your car’s year, make, and model, as well as your name and contact information. Next, add detailed information about the car’s condition, then you’ll get the estimated value of your car. For additional assistance, check out online tools like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®

Get an Appraisal

With your trade-in estimate completed, visit Kelley Automotive Group near Winter Haven for an appraisal. Our factory-trained and certified service technicians will examine your car’s condition inside and out while taking into consideration our current used inventory to determine if we can sell the vehicle. Bring your trade-in value estimate, and the other offers, to the appraisal as a reference. 

Negotiate or Accept the Trade-In Offer

After the appraisal, you can either further negotiate the deal or accept our offer and close the deal. The entire process is straightforward, and there are numerous benefits of choosing our dealership for trading in your vehicle.

  • Unlike other Auburndale-area used-car dealers, you can negotiate the trade-in offer at Kelley Automotive Group. 
  • If you still owe on your auto loan and want to consolidate that amount with the price of your new car, we can help you with that. 

After accepting the offer, you can finalize your trade for cash or put it towards your next vehicle purchase.
