Don’t be fooled into thinking trading in your car has to be a complex ordeal. To help demystify the entire process, let’s look at some of our most frequently asked questions:
There’s this idea floating around that selling your car as a private party seller means you’re going to get the highest price. This concept couldn’t be further from the truth. Maybe you’ll be able to sell for a slightly higher price than you might get with other options, but you also have to factor in all of the work getting your car ready for sale:
When you consider all of the time, work, and cash you put into selling your car, you’ll lose money on the final deal. The best way to skip the pain of private sales is to go straight to Ray Skillman Chevrolet. Not only will you get a no-obligation, competitive price, but we let you skip all of the prep work.

While owning a vehicle outright is the easiest way to trade in your car, you still have plenty of options if you’re still making payments on it. If you have positive equity, that is, you owe less o your loan than the car’s worth, you’re in a great position. We’ll buy your vehicle, pay off your loan, and put all of the leftover money towards your next purchase. If there is still money remaining after you select another car, you can just take it home as profit.
If you owe more on the car than it’s worth, called being “upside-down” on the loan, you can still make the trade. We’ll buy your car and pay off the loan. Your remaining balance is rolled over into your new loan.
