Get Your Trade-In Car Value at Our Anaheim Used Car Trade-In Center

The first thing you need to do is get an estimate on your current car’s value. You can use our value your trade tool to figure out what you can get for your vehicle. You’ll need to the following information about your car to get the most accurate estimate as possible: 

  • Make
  • Model
  • Mileage 
  • VIN number
  • Vehicle’s condition

In addition, have your phone number and email address handy. You can compare the number you get by using the same information with car value sites like Kelly Blue Book or Edmunds. 

Get an Appraisal

Once you have your estimated trade in value, you can take the car to Weir Canyon Acura for an appraisal. Our service team will do a more detailed look into the interior and exterior condition of your car. We’ll also check our inventory to determine whether we can sell the vehicle. Be sure to bring your trade-in value estimate or any other offers you’ve received for our reference.

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

When you get your appraisal, you have the option to accept or negotiate the offer given from our dealership. One of the benefits of doing this at the dealership is that our process is simple and easy. You’ll be driving on Tustin roads in no time! Additional benefits include: 

  • You can negotiate the offer with a dealership. 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.
