Should I Trade-In or Sell My Car?

Should I Trade-In or Sell My Car?

If you have an extra vehicle at home you may be wondering which option is the best when it comes to getting rid of it. Here at Pohanka Auto Group we’re ready to help with a quick overview of two great options -- selling it and trading it in. When you’re ready to take the next step contact our team! 

Trade-In Benefits

For those who are in the market to purchase a new or even a used vehicle, trading-in your current car allows you to offset the cost. Depending on the trading value of your vehicle and the sticker price of the one you are looking to buy, you can lower your costs by as much as a third or help cover the amount you might normally have use towards a down payment. Keep in mind that a lower sticker cost also results in lower monthly payments if you decide to finance your purchase. Trade-ins work out well for customers that are ready to get a new vehicle and who want a streamlined process -- you can often get an in-person value appraisal and get the keys to your next car or SUV in the same day. 

Selling Benefits

But what if you aren’t looking to buy a new vehicle? We’ve talked with many customers who are down-sizing or moving into a downtown area where they don’t need a car. If that’s the case, we are happy to talk with you about selling your vehicle to us directly. Many dealerships are looking to purchase vehicles or you can also sell it on your own via online sites or by marking it for sale in your driveway. You’ll be able to streamline your budget without the insurance, title, license plate, and even parking fees that can come with owning a vehicle. There’s no need to waste your hard-earned cash on a vehicle you don’t utilize, so if you’re in doubt take a moment to calculate the amount of times you’ve driven the vehicle in question in the past six months.  

Save Time with Pohanka

Now that you have a few of the key features that distinguish selling and trading-in your vehicle, you’ll want to think about how you are going to complete the process. The good news is that the Pohanka Automotive Group is ready to accommodate both options. We are happy to provide quick and competitive appraisals for both trade-ins and sales. You can even start the process online with our interactive forms. Save time and get the most out of your vehicle by choosing our family of dealerships. 

If you’ve ever asked yourself “Should I trade-in or sell my car?” we hope you have the answer!  Pohanka Automotive Group is your source for vehicle sales and trade-in options.

I arrived at 0700 just a little after the doors had opened and warmly greeted by Ryan Bartholomew, my Service Technician. He is a pleasure to work with and he goes the extra mile to ensure that your repairs and vehicle needs are attended to. Moreover, Ryan and I have been connected since I purchased my vehicle from Pohanka and he can ALWAYS call me by name when he sees me. I come an hour away (Bowie, MD) for the customer service, to have my 2013 Suburban cared for. Job well done Ryan and Pohanka Chevorlet!

They had the car I wanted and worked to get it to me at the price I could afford. Anuj was prompt and professional with all contact, over e-mail and in person. This is the second car I've leased from Pohanka, and I don't know why I would visit any other Chevy Dealer.

This was the fastest and best used car experience I've had. David Poole, Juan Andrade, and Hunter Bowles were all very courteous and professional. A great value on a good used car with a wonderful customer experience. I would definitely go back to this dealership!

My wife and I just bought a used car from Pohanka Chevrolet and had an excellent experience! We loved working with our manager David Poole. I called and spoke with him a couple days before we bought the car. He texted me a couple days later and we worked out the arrangements before we even went to the dealership. This was great since we live over an hour away. When we got to the dealership Juan Andrade went on a test drive with us. He was very professional. Once we decided to buy the car we got in right away to finalize the deal. Hunter Bowles, who is the finance manager, processed a registration transfer for us right there then printed out a new registration card. Thank you for a fabulous experience!!

The experience was very positive. The sales associate focused on our needs and wanted to work with us to reach an agreeable negotiated price. Was very pleased with the final negotiated sales price. At all times, the sales associate was very transparent with us and he was focused on meeting our needs. I will recommend Pohanka to friends in the market for new or used car.

Just picked up my new Blazer yesterday. My sales consultant, Anuj Bharadwaj, was great! This is the 2nd car I've bought from him and my son has also purchased a car from Anuj. He is always the ultimate, gentleman, actively listens to my concerns and doesn't pressure me on anything. I always find buying a car from him to be a pleasant experience. In addition, meeting the Business Manager, Hunter Bowles, was also a good interaction. He has wonderful customer service skills and is also pleasant to deal with. He thoroughly explained all my options for extended warranties and found me the best interest rate. I have been buying from Pohanka Chevrolet for 20 years. I do recommend this car dealership.

Jason provided a first class sales experience. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and provided just the right amount of follow up. He knew the vehicle and was able to answer all of my questions. He also did a good job explaining the closing documents. I highly recommend his services.

I came in to have 2 recalls fixed on my vehicle. I tried calling another dealership who I ended up contacting 3x and they never got back to me. I called Pohanka and they ordered the parts for me the next day. My service consultant was Adrian and he was so nice. I hate going to car dealerships as a woman because they can tell I'm totally not a car person and try to take advantage. He was really nice and made me feel very comfortable. They even offered to shuttle me to and from my house while they fixed my car! I ended up getting an oil change as well. Would def return. Thank you Adrian!

Great experience. I worked with Jason Buckley, made the deal over the phone/emails because I am out of the area. They provided me a ride from the airport and the vehicle was ready upon my arrival. I highly recommend them, their price couldn't be beat in my area.

Working with Pohanka Chevrolet was a great experience and they couldn't have made the process any easier. Andrew Brunt was very attentive to what I was looking for without the high pressure sales pitch. I was able to take advantage of the employee pricing promo which allowed me to purchase a 6 yr 75000 mile extended warranty. Hunter Bowled explained all of the details of the warranty to my wife and I and was able to provide a price that we can afford. I will definitely return for my next vehicle and will tell my friends to visit as well.
