Trade-In Vehicles

Yes, We Accept Trade-in Vehicles

It’s one of the most common questions we get at Eddie Mercer Automotive, and the answer is yes! We do accept trade-in vehicles, so you don’t have to figure out a way to arrive at our Pensacola dealership from Destin or Mobile or enlist someone to drive your old vehicle back with you.

How to Trade Your Vehicle In

Most of our customers do wish to trade in their current vehicle when purchasing their new one. While some people buy a new car every year, others wait until it’s about to fall apart before they think about trading. A newer, especially well-maintained vehicle is more likely to be sold on our lot, but we are interested in your vehicle whether it’s new or old — an older vehicle with some “wear and tear” will probably be sent to the auto auction.

In order to properly assess your vehicle, we must see it in person. Even if you gave us every possible detail, we still need to verify it. Phone appraisals will not usually be granted, so just drop by the dealership and let us take a look! In addition to cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs, we also accept motorcycles, boats, and off-road vehicles as trades. If it moves, we can move it.

Current Market Value

This is the most important factor we look at when we are assessing your trade-in. We are constantly updating our prices with the market to offer you the best savings on used vehicles and the best value on your trade-in. This means your trade-in could be worth more or less week to week depending on the current market. Prices don’t tend to change that dramatically in a week, but it can happen! Make sure you get your vehicle appraised the day you are ready and looking to buy.

Exterior Flaws

We actually prefer to do repairs ourselves, so don’t worry about fixing any exterior flaws before you bring it in. If there is a dent or a scratch that would have to be repaired, we work that into the trade-in value. Our appraisers know what it costs for us to pop out a door ding, repaint a bumper, brush touch a hood, or anything else that may need to be done. Please do not attempt to do repairs yourself. Most do-it-yourself jobs need to be redone by a professional and will be factored in accordingly.

Interior Condition

The interior can be the make or break area for some customers since that is where they spend their time. Our appraisers look at carpets, seats, headliners, and dashes to see if they can be restored to almost new condition. And don’t forget about smell! No one wants a stinky car, so smoke and other odors might be a deterrent when appraising your vehicle. Keeping the interior pristine is one of the best ways to get top dollar for your vehicle — keep it in mind for the next time you trade in!

Tires and Mechanics

Our appraisers look for tread wear and adjust appropriately if new tires are needed. They may lift the hood and listen to the engine to make sure it is running properly. They also check the transmission by shifting it in and out of drive and reverse as well as possibly taking it for a test drive if they feel there may be a problem.

We are honest and upfront about the cars we sell and we expect our customers to be the same. Please tell the appraiser if there are any problems we should know about!

We Also Buy Cars!

Considering selling your car, but aren’t looking to buy another? Simply bring in your car, let us know that you want to sell it, and we’ll offer you an on the spot appraisal.
