If you feel it’s time to upgrade from your current car to a newer vehicle, Whitten Brothers is here to help. Our goals for the trade-in of your car are to get you the best value possible for your current vehicle as well as make the process of trading in your vehicle easy & efficient. One of the easiest ways to do  this, is to trade in your vehicle at Whitten Brothers, where you can purchase your next car in the same transaction. There are plenty of benefits of trading your car in with Whitten that we will get to, but first, let’s find out how this process runs at our dealerships. 

  • Quick & Easy. While this offer may not put cash directly into your pockets, it will go towards the new car you are buying without losing any equity in the process. The alternative is to sell your car yourself and the private sale process is time-consuming as you must take on all the responsibilities behind marketing the car, showing the car to potential buyers, negotiating the purchase price, and doing all of the paperwork for a title transfer.


  • One Transaction in One Place. Consider Whitten Brothers your centralized location for trading in your current car and choosing your new ride. You drive in with your older car, and will drive home in your car. We would love to work together to find the best opportunity for a car loan (check out our financing options), to make the process a truly one-stop shopping experience.


  • Dealer Handles the Paperwork. We know what paperwork needs to be filed with which government agencies, and will be sure to cross all the t’s and dot all the i’s. 


  • Existing Loan (if applicable) is Paid Off. If you have a car loan for the vehicle you are trading in, it will be paid off as a part of the trade-in process with Whitten. We will communicate directly with the lender so none of the title transfer responsibilities fall to you.


Q: Can I use my trade in as a down payment?

A: Yes!

Q: Can I trade in a vehicle if I owe money on it? If so, how does this work?

A: Yes! If you owe money on your vehicle, we will pay off your current loan on that vehicle, so you do not have to. If you owe less than your vehicle is worth, you can apply that equity as a down payment on your next vehicle. If you owe more than your vehicle is worth, we can work with you to help arrange financing & likely still get you into a new vehicle.

Q: What do I need to bring to trade a sell or trade a vehicle?

A: To sell or trade a vehicle, we need your Driver’s License & Registration. If no money is owed, bring your title. If money is owed, we will get a 10-day payoff from your bank with you.

Q: If my vehicle is broken or damaged, should I fix it before selling or trading it?

A: In short, no. The time, energy, & money you invest in repairing your vehicle will not by exceeded by the increase in value if you sell or trade it to us. You should sell or trade your vehicle as is & let us worry about the repairs.

Q: Why is it beneficial to trade-in?

A: When you trade-in you don’t have to worry about selling the vehicle yourself or any of the associated costs (advertising, showing the car, etc). A dealer may offer a price you could not get yourself as an incentive to purchase a new vehicle. If the trade-in has known problems that could plague you later (when the buyer returns complaining), selling the car to the dealer eliminates the bother. Trading-in a lease car may relieve you of, in the long run, monthly costs you cannot afford.

Q: How much can I expect to get?

A: Check used car values in guides issued by organizations such as or the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA). Often both trade-in and private sale values are listed. Factors such as mileage, overall condition, damage and known mechanical problems heavily influence the trade-in value.
