About Kelley Blue Book® Values
For over 90 years, Kelley Blue Book has been The Trusted Resource for used car values, helping car owners understand what their used car is worth. Kelley Blue Book Values are the results of massive amounts of data, including actual sales transactions and auction prices, which are then analyzed and adjusted to account for seasonality and market trends. Kelley Blue Book Values reflect local conditions in over 100 different geographic regions and are updated weekly to give consumers the most up-to-date used car pricing information.

At Edwards Chevrolet 280, we want to buy your car. Whether you are looking to trade in your old vehicle for a newer model from our extensive inventory or you are interested in unloading a little-used car for cold hard cash, make us your first stop when you are looking for the best way to “sell my car.” We promise to provide a quick and convenient car-selling experience that lets you get every cent your vehicle is worth without the hassle of listing your car for sale yourself or haggling with private buyers.

Simply fill out the trade-in value tool here on our website to get started, and our finance team will make you a competitive offer. You can also give us a call or visit us in person to discuss selling your car. After that, it’s up to you whether you want to put that money towards a new or used car on our lot or walk away with cash in hand. Whatever your goal in selling a car, we are here to help and will make sure that you have a successful car selling experience.

Sell Us Your Car for Cash or Trade in Your Vehicle

When you sell a car privately, your only option is to take immediate payment for your vehicle. However, when you work with us, you have options. If you are looking to sell your car for some extra money that you can put in your savings account, then we are happy to accommodate you and will write you a check that you can cash today. We will also buy your car even if you haven’t finished paying off the loan for it. Most private buyers won’t touch a car if you don’t have the title in hand already, but we will work directly with your lender to make sure you can pay off the loan and sell the car to us in one easy transaction. Our number one priority is ensuring that your experience with us is streamlined and stress-free when you visit us to sell your car.

You also have the option of trading in your car for a new or used vehicle from our lot. If you are like most people and are looking to sell your old car in order to buy a newer vehicle, trading in your car offers several important advantages over selling your car and can help you save a lot of money. This is because when you trade in your vehicle for a new model at a licensed Alabama dealership, you only pay sales tax on the difference, not the full price of the new vehicle. In contrast, if you sell your car and then buy a new one, Alabama views that as two separate transactions and makes you pay taxes on the full value of the new car. The more your used car is worth, the more money trading it in with us will save you.

How Do You Trade in Your Car?

Trading in your old car is a simple process when you work with us. You can start by finding your vehicle’s value so you know how much money you have to work with. We have an online trade-in value tool right here on our website that will give you a quick estimate of how much your car is worth, or you can contact our team and let us provide you with an estimate. Please keep in mind that these are only a preliminary estimate and that we will need to inspect your vehicle in person before making a final offer. Depending on the exact condition of your car, our final offer could be higher or lower than our initial estimate, so it pays to keep your car in good condition.

After you have a rough idea of how much your car is worth, you can start shopping for a new vehicle. We have our full inventory of new and used models listed here on our website, but we always recommend talking to our sales team and visiting our dealership to view our vehicles in person and take them for test drives. When you have settled on the car you want, our finance team will inspect your old vehicle and deduct its value from the cost of your new car. Once the paperwork is signed, you give us the keys to your old car, and we will give you the keys to your new car. It’s as easy as that.

How Do We Determine Trade in Values?

A lot of factors go into determining the trade-in value of your vehicle. This includes the model, trim, and options, as well as its age, mileage, and condition. All of these factors are then compared to similar vehicles on the market to determine the final value of your car, which can fluctuate depending on market conditions and even the time of the year. It takes considerable experience and a thorough inspection of a vehicle to know its actual market value, and many private sellers end up asking too much or too little for the car. If you ask too much, it will be difficult to find a buyer, and it could take months to finally sell your car. If you ask too little, you probably won’t have much trouble finding a buyer, but you will be leaving money on the table.

At Edwards Chevrolet 280, we are committed to offering you the current market value of your vehicle. That is why we rely on Kelley Blue Book to provide an initial estimate of the value of your car. When you use our online trade-in value tool, you will get a Kelley Blue Book value for your vehicle based on recent transaction prices for similar cars in our area. These values are not based on arbitrary formulas but on what actual cars are selling for, ensuring that your car is valued accurately to reflect current market conditions. Of course, Kelley Blue Book does not know the exact condition of your personal vehicle, which is why our experienced technicians will inspect your car before we make a final offer. However, it provides an extremely accurate starting point, and our final offer is usually quite close to what Kelley Blue Book predicts.
