How to Get Your Trade-In Value

To trade in your car at our Green Bay area Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM dealership, or anywhere for that matter, you'll first need to know its trade-in value. Luckily, here at Kolosso CDJR we make finding that easy with our online value your trade tool. After you give us some information about your vehicle and a way for us to contact you, you'll get a trade-in estimate. Want to conduct further research to see how fair the value you received is? You can also use other tools like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®. Once you've received a trade-in estimate, it's time for an appraisal.

How to Get Your Trade-In Appraisal

Once you have a trade-in estimate, head to Kolosso CDJR for an actual appraisal. During this process, a knowledgeable member of our team will look over your vehicle, take it for a test-drive, and more. Then, you'll get a trade-in offer! Keep in mind that this offer is negotiable. 

How to Negotiate Your Trade-In Offer

You don't have to negotiate your trade-in offer -- you can accept it as-is -- but many Neenah and Oshkosh area drivers like to see if they can get more for their trade! If you do decide to negotiate your offer here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Unlike some Waupaca used-car retailers, you can negotiate with a dealership like Kolosso CDJR. If you've done your research on how much your car is worth, you stand a good chance of getting the purchase price of your vehicle up. 
  • If you're upside down on your auto loan and wish to consolidate what you owe, a dealership like ours is the perfect place to do that.
  • You can either apply the trade-in offer amount towards your new vehicle loan, or take it as a separate cash payment.
