It’s really very simple to trade in your vehicle and get the fair market price at Honda of Toms River. Learn all about how to trade in your car and then stop by our dealership in Toms River today!

How to Trade In a Car: Preparing the Vehicle

Before you bring the vehicle in for a formal appraisal, you should wash it and clean and vacuum the interior, making sure to remove all personal items.

It is also a good idea to make any small repairs that are necessary. Any larger, more expensive repairs can be handled by the dealer since it will cost them less to fix than what you’d have to pay out of pocket.

  • Some information about the vehicle’s condition

Once you submit the online form you’ll instantly receive the estimated value of your car. It’s that easy!
