You want to get the most out of your current car, so knowing how to boost your vehicle’s trade-in value can help. Red Noland INFINITI accepts gently used cars from Colorado Springs and Cimarron Hills, Colorado, owners to build our pre-owned inventory. Make sure you get the compensation you deserve by following our tips for Fort Carson and Canon City, Colorado, motorists.
Before you make any changes or bring in your car, find out how much it’s worth. If you know how much you can get for it, you’ll know what kind of down payment you’ll have. If the amount isn’t to your liking, find out the measures you should take to increase its value to a more satisfactory level.
Our Value Your Trade appraisal tool can be used to determine the current value or research the amounts on trusted sites like Edmunds.com or Kelley Blue Book. Be aware that the value may change daily according to the market demand. On the trade-in day, the latest estimate will be honored.
When using our appraisal tool, you’ll need some vital information about your car. It’s easy to find that info from your registration, owner’s manual, or the car itself. Enter the make, model, year, and condition. Mileage can help, too, but it’s not required. You may also attach current photos of the exterior and the interior.

Once you’ve taken out the trash, wash the windows, wipe down the dashboard, and vacuum the upholstery and floor. A clean car shows off all its appealing features.
Remember to take out all your personal items, from gloves to phone cords. Check the trunk and glove box for anything you may have forgotten. Don’t forget to erase personal information from any on-board devices to protect yourself.
Now that you’ve taken care of the items listed throughout this article, be sure to bring these items with you:
Plus, you’ll want to bring your driver’s license, social security card, and down payment if necessary. Then, you’ll feel confident and ready to trade in your car.
