Trade-in your vehicle

Have you decided that now is the time to sell your current vehicle and purchase a new one? One of the best options is to trade it into a dealership and use the equity in the vehicle to lower the cost of your next vehicle purchase. One of the largest premier car retailers in the Southeast is ALM Cars, which has successfully helped many car owners easily trade in their vehicles for new ones. We want you to find the best trade-in offer for your car at ALM.

Here at ALM Cars, we have been providing the best luxury used vehicles to residents in metro Atlanta since 2006. We offer over 4,500 vehicles, a five-day exchange policy, and nationwide shipping. We’re conveniently located in ten locations throughout the metro Atlanta region and one in Florence, SC & St. Louis.

 

Getting started

When you first begin to think about trading in your vehicle, your first question will be how to best determine your car’s actual worth. This, of course, will depend on a number of factors. The most important are your vehicle’s age, condition, and mileage. Beyond those factors, other important considerations will be the make and model of your vehicle. A high-end luxury brand will most likely net you a higher trade-in value than a conventional vehicle made in the same year.

 

Simple procedure

At ALM Cars, the procedure is very simple to learn the value of your car. All you have to do is follow these three easy steps. Within just five minutes, you’ll have an offer online from the convenience of your home or office. We use the CARFAX trade-in value tool. First, enter your vehicle’s plate number and the state that which it is registered. Second, enter your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). It can be located in a number of areas: the lower left-hand side of your car's dashboard; or by finding on your vehicle's title, insurance card, or policy. Third, enter the make, model, and year of your vehicle. The tool will confirm your vehicle’s information and ask for a trim and other details as well like the color and condition. You will automatically receive the CARFAX value of your vehicle.

Next, before you bring your car to ALM, make sure it has been cleaned. The old saying about first impressions is true of trading in a vehicle. If you’ve removed excess bags and other items from your vehicle, it will make a great first impression on us. One of our team members will give your car a test drive and appraise its value. ALM will then make you an initial offer based on the CARFAX report. Depending on the time of year, there might be room for additional negotiation. Perks and deals might be running at the time of your trade-in that you can use to receive even more for your vehicle. Once you have a final offer that you’ve accepted, all you need to do is sign the car’s title over to ALM.

 

Benefits of trading in your vehicle to ALM

Selling a car on your own requires a ton of paperwork. However, if you trade your used vehicle in at a dealership like ALM, we'll take care of the paperwork for you. Our experienced sales team knows what documents need to be filed at the DMV.

Another key benefit to trading your car in at a dealer is saving money on the sales tax. In both Georgia and South Carolina where ALM is located, the trade-in value can be deducted from the new car’s price.

We understand that letting go of your vehicle can be difficult, especially if you’ve owned it for a long time. But it’s nice to look forward to owning a new vehicle with that fresh smell and all new accessories. One of the easiest methods is to trade in your vehicle and use that equity toward a new vehicle.

For the quickest and easiest way to trade in your used vehicle, contact a reputable used car dealership like ALM Cars.  We'll be happy to take a look at your current vehicle and give you the best trade-in deal for one of our outstanding new vehicles.
