About Kelley Blue Book® Values
For over 90 years, Kelley Blue Book has been The Trusted Resource for used car values, helping car owners understand what their used car is worth. Kelley Blue Book Values are the results of massive amounts of data, including actual sales transactions and auction prices, which are then analyzed and adjusted to account for seasonality and market trends. Kelley Blue Book Values reflect local conditions in over 100 different geographic regions and are updated weekly to give consumers the most up-to-date used car pricing information.

What Is the Trade-in Value of Your Vehicle?

Whether you are selling your car to us for cash or looking to trade it in for a newer vehicle from our inventory, the process starts by getting an estimate of how much your car is worth. The easiest way to do that is to use the Kelley Blue Book trade-in value tool right here on our website. This tool allows you to enter some basic identifying information about your vehicle and will help you learn how much it is likely worth based on current market conditions. If you like what you see or want to discuss things further, our finance team will be happy to help. The Kelley Blue Book estimate is just a starting point and is not set in stone. We always conduct a detailed inspection here at our dealership so we can precisely determine exactly how much your particular vehicle is worth, taking into account details such as its current condition and any accessories that have been added.

Kelley Blue Book is our partner of choice when it comes to valuing vehicles because of its long expertise. It has been providing used car values since 1926 and has become the industry standard. Unlike many other car values, Kelley Blue Book values are location-specific and based on actual transactions, so you will get a value for your vehicle that corresponds to recent sales of similar cars in our region. This value will also take into consideration the details of your vehicle, including its age, mileage, trim, options, and more, to ensure it is as accurate as possible. No online tool can perfectly understand the condition of your vehicle, which is why we also carefully inspect your car in person before making a final offer, but we have found that Kelley Blue Book is the most reliable source for used car values.

You Can Trade in Your Car or Sell It to Us for Cash

When you work with us, you can trade in your car for a new or used vehicle from our selection or you can sell it to us for cash. The choice is yours. If you are looking to clean up your driveway and get rid of an unneeded car, then we can write you a check for its full value today and have you on your way. That’s a lot easier than trying to find a private buyer, negotiate a price, and hope they have the money to pay. Plus, you can sell us your car even if you are still paying off an auto loan, and we will work directly with your lender to transfer the title. This makes it easy to sell a car to us and walk away with the money you need, no matter what situation you are in.

However, selling your car to us for cash is not your only option. You can also trade in your old vehicle for a newer model. Trading in your vehicle allows you to combine what would normally be two transactions––selling your old car and buying a new one––into a single transaction, which streamlines the process and can help you save money. For instance, when you trade in a car at a certified Alabama dealership, you only need to pay sales tax on the difference between the value of your trade-in and the price of the new car. That can result in hundreds of dollars of savings depending on the value of your old vehicle. Plus, we can help you roll anything that remains of your old car loan into the loan for your new vehicle, so you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket to sell your old car like you would with a private sale.

How Do You Trade in Your Car?

Trading in your car with us is a simple process, and you can get started right here on our website. The best place to start is to use our online trade-in value tool to get an initial estimate of how much your car is worth. This will help you determine what you can afford before shopping for your next vehicle. If you have any questions about the trade-in process, you can also reach out to our team for the answers you need. We are happy to communicate with you online, over the phone, or face-to-face here at our showroom. The next step is to figure out what car you will buy next. We have a large inventory of brand-new and pre-owned Chevy models, as well as used cars from other manufacturers, and our sales team will help you find the perfect vehicle for your needs.

Once you have settled on your next ride, our finance team will take over and handle the entire trade-in process for you. One of our team members will inspect your old vehicle to determine its current condition, and we will make you a competitive final offer. If you accept, we will deduct the value of your trade-in from the purchase price of your new vehicle. We will also show you available financing options for your new car, including current lease deals, and prepare all the necessary paperwork. This turns the entire complicated process of selling your old car and buying a new one into a single streamlined transaction that will get you back out on the road in no time.
