Trade-In Value

Get Your Volvo Trade-In Value

How much is your used Volvo worth? Due the variety of online tools available, it can be hard to know how much money you should receive when you trade in your Volvo. We want you to know up-front what you car is worth though, especially because that information is important for many reasons. If you're planning on replacing it with another Volvo, the amount of trade-in cash you receive can inform your new choice of vehicle. Use our online Value Your Trade tool, and if you have any questions, let us know.

Volvo Value-Your-Trade Tool: Get Your Car's Worth

If the thought of driving to an auto shop and allowing a technician you don't know to appraise your vehicle makes you uncomfortable, then you'll love our easy-to-use online tool.

All you have to do is fill out the information requested on the form--after you do that, you'll receive a unique appraisal for your vehicle. To fill out the form, you'll need all of your vehicle information handy, including the title--we need to know if your title designation is "salvaged" or "reconstructed" or something similar.

Other than that, the questions are fairly basic, like repair history, paint jobs, water damage, and mileage. We'll have to verify that your form is correct when you bring the vehicle to our shop, but you can rest assured that our Value Your Trade tool is accurate and helpful.

Benefits of Trading in your Car

Do you have a used Volvo (or another make) that you're looking to move on from? We'd love to work out a trade in deal with you--here are some reasons to consider.

Firstly, trading in a car is easy! The process is best when you already know you want to purchase another car from us--you simply drive to the dealership in one car, sign a few papers, and leave in another car. You can apply your trade-in allowance directly towards the purchase of your new car. When you sell a used car, you often have to wait weeks, if not months, and you'll have to haggle with potential buyers and meet people via Craigslist. Trading a car in eliminates that process.

Also, you can receive a significant tax break when you trade in a vehicle and buy a new one in the same transaction. Tax laws in many states dictate that you only have to pay sales tax on the remaining value of your new car after the trade-in allowance is subtracted:

  • Trade-in Value: $7,000

  • New Car Cost: $36,000

  • You pay sales tax on: $29,000

How to Improve your Volvo Trade-In Value

While car dealers will mainly look for structural issues and performance specs when appraising your trade-in value, there are some things you can do to maximize the value of your used car. If you follow these steps, your trade allowance may improve.

The obvious first step is to keep your car clean. While most dealerships will detail a vehicle before selling it anyways, you don't want to show up with a dirty car that has food stains all over the seats (that's something that can actually cost the dealership money to fix before selling it!). Run your car through a car wash and give it a quick vacuum--it's the least you can do.

You can also get minor aesthetic details like bumps and scrapes fixed before trying to trade it in. Anything that the dealership doesn't have to fix itself will earn some more cash for you.

Lastly, you should get an estimate on any major repairs that your vehicle needs. That doesn't mean you have to fork over the money to repair it on your own before trading it in, but understanding the cost of a repair will help you negotiate a fair trade in price.
