Get Your Trade-In Car Value Now

Buying a new vehicle can be expensive. Even pre-owned cars & trucks are increasing in price. That’s why so many New Town and Belcourt car shoppers choose to trade in their vehicles to offset the cost of future monthly payments. To take full advantage of your trade-in, you’ll first want to know its value. That’s why we offer a convenient online trade-in valuation tool. Here’s how to use it:

  • Provide us some vehicle information so we know more about your year, make, model, features, and condition.
  • Provide us some personal information so that we can get back to you in a timely manner.
  • You should hear back from us with a trade-in estimate and request to bring your vehicle in for a final trade-in offer at our service center. It’s that simple!

Want to do more research on your own time? There are other online tools available, like the Kelley Blue Book® Value tool and Edmunds True Market Value® tool that can help you check your estimated trade-in value against what other vehicles like yours are selling for in Bismarck and nearby.

Get a Trade-In Appraisal

Learning how to trade in your car is relatively easy, but the process usually does require getting an appraisal after your initial trade-in offer. Thankfully, at our Chevrolet dealership and service center in Minot, we make getting an appraisal easy. 

The appraisal process entails us examining your vehicle’s condition, inside and out, and then also taking into consideration our current vehicles and market values. So what are you waiting for? Get your trade-in estimate and appraisal at Ryan Chevrolet!

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

After you get your vehicle appraised, you have options. You can negotiate for a higher offer, or you can accept outright and seal the deal ASAP. Either way, the whole process is fairly straightforward. That’s a main benefit of trading in your vehicle at a dealer vs. selling it to a private party. Other advantages include:

  • You can negotiate with a dealership such as Ryan Chevrolet. The first offer you’re given isn’t always the last, and you can choose to haggle up based on the trade-in value research you’ve done and current market prices.
  • If you’re upside down on your car loan, we still may be able to accept your trade-in and work something out. We strive to provide every Minot driver with affordable access to transportation.
