How to Trade In a Car

Car dealer giving car key to buyer


Learning how to trade in a car can help you make a major impact on your monthly payments, and it’s easy to complete the four-step trade-in process at Land Rover Darien! Selling a car at home can take weeks or even months, but learning how to trade-in your car at our dealership could take five minutes or less! If you decide to come in for an appraisal, we can give you a cash offer in under an hour. 


1. Estimate Your Vehicle’s Value

Drivers who do their research can expect to receive more money in exchange for their trade-in. Check online databases like Kelley Blue Book to find out how much used cars like your own are fetching on the open market. You might also find valuable information by browsing local pre-owned inventories near Greenwich and New Canaan. 


Next, use our own trade-in value calculator to get an estimate of how much your own particular vehicle is worth! While you’re at it, find out how your trade-in will impact your monthly payments.

2. Schedule an In-Person Appraisal

Be wary of online offers. Many apps and “instant” trade-in tools will low-ball you because it’s impossible to know how much a vehicle is really worth without a hands-on inspection. Instead, schedule an in-person appraisal with our team. (In fact, you don’t even need to make an appointment! Just stop in.) We can make a detailed assessment and offer top-dollar for your trade-in. 


The vast majority of in-person appraisals can be completed in under an hour, and many will be completed in thirty minutes or less.

3. Negotiate or Accept Your Trade-In Offer

None of our trade-in offers are conditional on whether or not you buy a vehicle. You can choose to take cash or apply the full value to your next new or new-to-you vehicle. What’s more, unlike many other used car dealerships in the Stamford area, we are open to negotiating on our trade-in offers! That’s where your initial research will come in handy.


If your trade-in value won’t cover your next vehicle in its entirety, we’d be happy to help you secure financing
