How to Trade-In My Car

blue piggy bank
You’ve found the new Hyundai with features that you’ve always wanted, but how can you get the best deal on your upcoming auto financing package? Bringing in your old trade-in car can save you quite a bit of money, while streamlining your shopping process at the same time. Not sure how to trade-in my car in the Chicago area? No problem! Let Patrick Hyundai walk you through the process of getting an estimate and swapping out your vehicle.

What is the Benefit of Trading in a Car?

Whether you choose leasing or financing at Patrick Hyundai, trading in your car is one of the quickest and easiest ways to bring down your total loan cost. The dealership will buy your old car from you, so there’s no need to worry about the hassle of selling it yourself. Plus, the money you earn for your trade-in car goes directly toward your new vehicle. This reduces your down payment instantly, which puts you in a better financial spot from the start.

How Do I Start the Trade-In Process?

You’ve seen the benefits of trading in your vehicle, so now you might be wondering how to trade-in your vehicle. Well, it’s simpler than you might think.

  • Use our Value My Trade tool or other estimating tool to get a rough idea of how much your trade-in car is worth.
  • Find your next vehicle by browsing our inventories and see just how much your trade-in car value can reduce the price of your new ride.
  • Bring your car to Schaumburg with your title, auto loan payoff information, registration, and keys. We’ll do an inspection and finalize the process.

What if you have a current loan balance? Be sure to speak with our financial experts about your options. We can help you determine the best route to move forward.
