Value Your Trade

We Will Buy Your Car!

At Capital Ford Winnipeg, we believe in making car shopping and car buying as easy as possible. One way we make that goal achievable for our Winnipeg customers is by offering a hassle-free way to sell their used cars. Not everyone has the time or desire to become a private party seller — and that’s where Capital Ford Winnipeg comes in. We will buy your car, so you don’t have to worry about posting ads or screening buyers. Then, we’ll help you put your car’s value toward the new Ford or pre-owned vehicle you truly want. Can I sell my car online? You can certainly start the process online, but we will need to physically inspect the vehicle before the sale can be completed. Learn more about selling your car to a dealership, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

How to Trade In My Car or How to Sell my Car to a Dealership

After you’ve received your trade-in estimate, the next thing you’ll want to know is how to trade in your car, or more specifically, how to sell your car to a dealership. The first step is to bring the vehicle to our dealership in Winnipeg for an appraisal. Our certified service team will examine the condition of your car and make sure it’s a good fit for our used car inventory. When you visit for your car’s appraisal, be sure to bring your trade-in estimate!

Once we’ve examined your car, you can negotiate or accept our offer and finalize the sale. We pride ourselves on offering the fairest possible offer on trade-in vehicles, aiming to make the trade-in process transparent and simple. In fact, there are a couple of major advantages to selling your car to a dealership, including:

  • You can haggle at a dealership. We encourage our customers to always do their own research to make sure they’re getting the most reasonable trade-in offers.
  • Can you trade in a car you still owe on? You can with a dealership. If you’re upside down on your car loan, you can consolidate what’s owed on your current car with the price of your new ride.

Once you have settled on a price, you can choose to sell the car to our dealership outright or put the value of your vehicle towards the purchase of a brand-new Ford car, truck, or SUV.

Value Your Trade-In: FAQs

Q: Can you trade in a financed car?
A: Yes, you can. If you have positive equity on the car (as in, it’s worth more than what you currently owe), you can trade it in easily. The dealer will purchase the car and pay off the loan, then they’ll put what’s left toward the new vehicle price, giving you a major advantage. If you have negative equity on the car (as in its worth less than what you currently owe), the dealer may still buy the car and pay off the loan, but the difference will be rolled into your new car loan — meaning you’ll still need to pay it off eventually.

Q: How soon can you trade in a financed car?
A: There’s no time limit that’s set in stone, but it’s a good idea to wait until you have positive equity.

Q: What does it mean to be “upside-down” on a car loan?
A: Being “upside-down” on a car loan is the same thing as having negative equity. If, for example, you owe $30,000 on a car that’s worth $25,000, you have negative equity.

Q: Can I trade in my car for a cheaper car?
A: If you still owe money on the car, you can trade it in for a cheaper one. If, for example, you owe $15,000 and the car is worth $20,000, the dealer can purchase the car as a trade-in, pay off the loan, and put the $5,000 toward your new auto loan as equity. If you don’t owe money on the car and own it outright, there’s nothing stopping you from trading it in for a cheaper car; you can do whatever you’d like with it.
