Before You Visit Our Dealership

✓ Find Your Next Vehicle: If you plan on trading in your model for a new ride, you’ll need to find a perfect match. With our expansive inventory of new Toyota models as well as research resources, like vehicle reviews and guides, you can easily set your sights on what you’ll want to drive next.

✓ Determine Your Vehicle’s Worth: Next, you’ll want to find out how much your trade-in vehicle is worth. Using our Trade-In Valet tool, you’ll determine its estimated value within a few minutes! All you need to do is provide information about your vehicle and it does the work for you.


Preparing Your Vehicle for Trade

✓ Remove Personal Items: Do an extensive sweep of your vehicle and remove any personal items. Make sure to check the door pockets, glove compartments, center console, and trunk or cargo area. This is also a good time to reinstall any factory items you may have removed (extra row of seats, entertainment system headphones, etc.).

✓ Wash & Detail: To ensure you get the most for your trade-in model, you’ll need to prepare the vehicle for an in-person inspection. Put its best face forward by thoroughly cleaning and detailing both the interior and exterior. Either do it yourself or hire a professional because first impressions are everything!

✓ Maintenance & Repairs: If your vehicle is due for a maintenance visit or needs some minor repairs, getting them done beforehand might result in a higher trade-in value. This can include anything from an oil change to fixing minor dents on the exterior.
