Your Car Trade-In FAQs Answered by Walker Toyota
Have all the knowledge you need to successfully trade a car in Louisiana by reviewing our frequently asked questions.
What is the trade-in value of my car?
Begin by estimating the value of your trade-in online, then schedule an appraisal at our local dealership to get the most accurate evaluation. We’ll assess your vehicle’s overall condition and hand you an offer that’s based on a few factors, including:
- Mechanical Condition
- Car Features
- Exterior/Interior Condition
- Current Market Pricing
How do you trade in a car?
Once you estimate how much your car is worth, we’ll be happy to take it from there with an in-person used car inspection. We’ll examine your vehicle and offer you a competitive price in minutes -- it’s that simple.
What is the benefit of trading a car in?
There are a host of benefits that come with trading in a car. Perhaps most beneficial is the stress you’ll avoid by handing over your old car to the professionals at Walker Toyota. Looking to trade up to a new Toyota near Pineville? Our simple trade-in process makes it easy to do so.
Should I trade in vs. sell my car?
While there’s a chance you receive more money for a private car sale, but that comes with its caveats. Here are a few reasons why trading in a car is often the better option:
- Save Time, Money & Stress: Are you willing to spend time and money on advertising? Ready to put in the work to schedule meet-ups with prospective buyers on weekends and after work? If not, know that the experts at Walker Toyota will be happy to handle the hard work for you.
- Avoid Detailing & Reconditioning Costs: Because an independent buyer will give you more money for a car without blemishes, that may require you to look into detailing services and potential body work. Here at our Alexandria dealership, we want to buy your car and hand you a competitive price regardless of its condition.
- Access to Your Next Car: When you choose to sell a car privately, you’ll more than likely be without a ride for weeks and weeks. By working with Walker Toyota, you'll be able to seamlessly trade in your old vehicle and take delivery of your new or used Toyota in one easy visit.
- Safer Transactions: To put it simply, there’s always a risk when you’re dealing directly with strangers. They may try to take advantage of you monetarily, or worse. Here at our trustworthy Toyota dealer in Louisiana, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about as our transactions are 100% safe, respectful and completed properly.
Can I trade in a car I still owe money on?
Yes! If you want to trade in a financed car, chat with our auto finance team about paying off the remaining loan balance.
