If you’re shopping for a new Ford vehicle at our dealership, you might not be sure what you should do with your current car. Selling it on your own can take up a lot of time, but trading it in at Zeigler Ford of North Riverside couldn’t be simpler! We make it easy to put the value of your current vehicle towards a purchase of a new model.

Trades in Basics

Before you trade in your vehicle there are a few things that you need to do. Make sure that you have all of the necessary paperwork, like the title and financing documents if you’re still paying this vehicle off. That way, we know that you own the car and that you can trade it in. Also make sure that you have other documents, like the owner’s manual; the next driver of your vehicle will surely appreciate that. Then clean your car inside and out. Look under the seats and in the glove compartment to get all of your belongings out before you sell it.

Then you can visit our website to use our “Value Your Trade-In” tool. This tells you approximately how much your vehicle is worth. It’s not a definitive offer, but knowing roughly how much your car is worth can help you see how a new Ford model like the 2020 Ford Escape or the 2020 Ford Explorer fit into your budget. Then just bring your trade-in to our dealership, and you’ll be driving off in a brand new vehicle before you know it!

So visit our Ford dealership serving Oak Park, IL and see how our Ford financing experts can help you. Whether you’re shopping for a new pickup truck, a capable crossover, or a spacious SUV, we’ll get you behind the wheel of the perfect vehicle in no time!
