Instant Cash Offer

Have you decided it's time to purchase a new vehicle but don't feel like dealing with the hassle of selling your current vehicle privately? At Tameron Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat, you can quickly and easily trade in your vehicle even if it isn't paid off. No dealing with strangers or listing your vehicle online. We've got better options for you here at our Daphne, Alabama, dealership and can help you get the price you want for your vehicle so you can get behind the wheel of one of our new Dodge, Ram, Fiat, Chrysler, or Jeep vehicles today.

How Does the Instant Cash Offer Work?

It's simple to get an instant cash offer on your vehicle at Tameron Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat. First, tell us about your car. We'll need to know:

  • Year.
  • Make.
  • Model.
  • Specific features.
  • Condition.
  • Mileage.

After that, you get your instant cash offer, valid for up to seven days. When you're ready, bring us your car and your offer, and we'll verify the information using the same questions you were asked at home. Our offer will be the same, whether you trade your vehicle for a new one or you want cash.

How Is My Instant Cash Offer Calculated?

We use a proprietary tool to calculate your instant cash offer. This tool accounts for used car prices and fluctuating market conditions and uses various sources to determine your offer. Your price will be based on:

  • Supply and demand.
  • Historical trends.
  • Regional differences.
  • Your vehicle's condition.
  • Local market influences.

The vehicle market quickly changes, so offers are only valid for seven days to reflect any possible changes.

Why Trade or Sell Your Car to a Dealership?

Many buyers prefer to sell their car or trade it into a dealership for one simple reason: it's easy to drive to a dealership in your old vehicle and drive away in a new one. It can even help you save money on your new vehicle if you have positive equity, reducing the amount you need to make for a down payment. You don't have to wait for a private party to purchase your vehicle, which can take time and lots of paperwork.

There are also tax advantages to trading in a vehicle. You'll only need to pay the sales tax for the difference between your trade-in and the price of your new vehicle. You won't need to pay sales tax on the full price of your new car. If you're buying a new car for $30,000 and your trade-in is worth $6,000, you'll only be paying sales tax on the $24,000 difference, which saves you money.

Can I Trade In My Car if I Still Owe Money?

Absolutely! Trading in a car that you still are paying off doesn't have to be complicated, and at Tameron Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat, we can help you trade in your vehicle for a new ride. There are typically two situations when trading in a vehicle that you still owe money on:

Positive Equity

Having positive equity on your vehicle means that your vehicle is worth more than the amount owed on your current loan. If you have positive equity, you're in an ideal situation when trading in your vehicle.

Negative Equity

Many people are in a situation where they owe more on their vehicle than it's currently worth. This is called negative equity and is often referred to as being upside-down on your loan. When trading in a car with negative equity, you'll have to pay the difference or roll over what you owe into a new car loan.

After you find a car that you want that can hold the value of any negative equity you may have, our financial experts can help you get the financing you need. If you're wondering whether you'll have positive or negative equity on your current vehicle, enter your information and get your instant cash offer.

How to Maximize Your Trade-In Value

When you trade in your vehicle at any dealership, you must present it at its best to maximize your trade-in value. Here are six ways to boost your trade-in value:

  1. Get any known mechanical problems fixed. The mechanical condition of your vehicle is critical. If you're aware of issues, it's best to get them fixed. If your check engine light is on, that's another factor that will lessen your vehicle's value.
  2. Get any recalls fixed, if there are any. These repairs are free for you and can boost the value if they're repaired before trading in your vehicle.
  3. Research the best time of year to trade in your vehicle. Certain models of vehicles sell better at certain times of the year, and when they're in high demand, your trade-in value will go up.
  4. Make sure the outside of your vehicle looks as good as possible. Repair any easy-to-fix damages and ensure all your lights are working. Washing your vehicle before coming in will boost your value even more.
  5. Straighten up the inside of your vehicle. Even if you do a quick vacuum, take out all of the trash, and make sure there are no significant stains, you'll be better off.
  6. Provide service documentation if you have it. Proof that you performed recommended maintenance when you owned the vehicle will show a lot.
