Many drivers in the San Antonio area visit Mercedes-Benz of San Antonio with questions about how to trade in a car. If you have been wondering how to trade in your car, you have come to the right place. Selling your car to a dealership such as Mercedes-Benz of San Antonio allows you to avoid the hassle of selling the vehicle on your own, and we make it easy to put the value of your current car toward a new vehicle from our extensive inventory. Mercedes-Benz of San Antonio further explains how to trade in a car below. 

Find the Value of Your Trade-In

The first step of the process is finding out how much your current vehicle is worth. Mercedes-Benz of San Antonio makes this step convenient by offering an online “value your trade” tool. Simply enter your car’s year, make, and model, along with your name, email, and phone number. You will then be asked to provide information regarding the vehicle’s condition. Once you have submitted the form, you’ll receive your estimate. It’s that easy! If you prefer to do additional research to ensure you are getting the best possible price for your trade-in, you can try other online tools from reliable sources such as Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®

Have Your Vehicle Appraised 

After you receive an estimate for your trade-in vehicle, we will need to appraise the car in person. Our experts will inspect the car’s condition from top to bottom. Before we can finalize the offer, we will also need to take our current used inventory into consideration to determine whether we can sell the vehicle. If you have received other estimates, be sure to have them with you for our reference.

Accept the Offer or Negotiate Further

When the appraisal process is complete and you have received your offer, you have the option to accept the offer, reject the offer, or try to negotiate the price. What are some of the benefits of trading in your vehicle at a dealership like Mercedes-Benz of San Antonio? 

  • Many used car retailers near Alamo Heights and Shavano Park do not allow you to negotiate your trade-in offer. You have to accept it as is or reject the offer. That is not the case at Mercedes-Benz of San Antonio.
  • If you’re upside down on your auto loan and wish to consolidate what you owe with the price of your new car, we can help!
