3 Simple Steps To Having Your Vehicle Appraised.
We appraise each and every vehicle at Okotoks Honda. We believe that buying and owning a car should be easy, enjoyable and transparent. During the appraisal process we fully disclose the amount that you will receive for your trade as well as the amount you will pay for a newly purchased vehicle. By providing all information in the most transparent and easy way possible, our customers are able to make an informed decision that best suits their family’s needs and lifestyle.
Tools we use at the dealership to help maximize the value of your trade include a CARFAX vehicle history report. A CARFAX report provides us with the vehicle history to give us relevant information, such as past damage/accidents as well as servicing information, which can impact the vehicle’s value to help make an informed decision. Another factor that may impact the value of a vehicle is whether or not the vehicle still has the factory paint. We believe in doing our due diligence, through the use of various tools, to ensure the value of the trade is both accurate and fair for all parties involved.
Benefits of trading-in your vehicle to Okotoks Honda while in the process of purchasing a new or pre-owned vehicle not only includes taking the hassle and stress out of selling privately but also includes significant tax savings. When trading-in a vehicle you will only get taxed on the difference, not the full amount of the vehicle you are purchasing. The customer will be taxed on the difference between the value of the new or pre-owned vehicle and the value of the vehicle being traded in.
