How Does Trade In Work?

It can be a daunting process when it comes time to trade-in your current vehicle for a new one, but more and more dealers have made it easier over the years to determine the value of your car. Our Honda dealership serving Houston is no different, and our friendly, knowledgeable staff is here to to lend their expert advice to help you find the perfect new or used Honda model for you.

The trade-in process first begins when you value your trade through our trade-in form, which can easily be completed online from your home near Houston. The form will ask you to input your current vehicle’s VIN number, or its year, make, model, and style in order to get the most accurate value for your car. The quickest way to make sure you get the most bang for your buck is to input your VIN number, which can be found on your insurance card or where your driver’s side dashboard meets your windshield.

Prepare Your Car for Trade-In Near Houston

To ensure your car receives the best appraisal value and to speed up the trade-in process, Community Honda suggests drivers take a couple steps to prepare their vehicle before stopping in. Make sure your car is clean inside and out and bring all necessary documents and valuable accessories, like the car’s title, extra key fobs, and the owner’s manual.

When you arrive at our dealership, one of our team members will take a look at the vehicle to check its condition, cross-check it with your trade-in form, and make certain that all it’s mechanical parts are functioning. The trade-in offer you receive will depend on several factors, such as the vehicle’s condition, desirability, and if the dealer has similar cars on the lot. Should you choose to agree to a deal for both your trade-in and new car as well as have your car’s title and loan information handy, the paperwork for your trade-in will start and you can drive off in your new ride today!
