Step-By-Step: How to Trade In Your Car

Follow these steps on how to trade in your car at Humble Hyundai:

Get Your Trade-In Value

First and foremost, you will need to understand the value of your car. Luckily, this step is simple, thanks to our convenient Value Your Trade tool. Enter model information about your vehicle, supply personal contact information, and include details about your vehicle’s condition. From there, you will receive an estimate of your car’s value. Take advantage of other online tools for comparison purposes, as well, such as Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®.

Schedule an Appraisal

Equipped with your trade-in estimate, your next step is to schedule an appraisal with Humble Hyundai near The Woodlands. Our team will closely examine your car’s condition, and we will also factor in the status of our current used inventory to determine whether we will be able to sell your vehicle. We will reference your trade-in estimate as we appraise your car.

Negotiate or Accept Your Trade-In Offer

When we complete the appraisal, we will provide you with an offer. You can certainly negotiate this figure based on the research you’ve done, or you can accept the offer outright and close the deal. Once the trade is settled, you can either take cash for the vehicle or apply the value toward the purchase of a new model.
