How does trading in my vehicle work at a dealership?

Trading in your vehicle at a dealership is a great way to save money when you want to get an upgrade. When you trade in a vehicle at a dealership, the dealership appraises your current vehicle to determine its value. After looking over the vehicle and taking into consideration its make, model, year, and condition, the appraiser gives you an estimate of its value. You can then trade in your current vehicle and get back its value as credit towards the purchase of another vehicle.

It all sounds great, but my friend says BHPH dealers sell junk cars?

That is a common misconception that buy here pay here dealers sell bad cars. On the contrary, because you make payments to us, we are EXTRA invested in making sure you drive off in a dependable vehicle. That is why we inspect all of our inventory to ensure your driving safety. Other dealerships that sell your loan off to a bank have far less of an investment in things like if your car breaks down or if your payments are out of your budget. They are much more likely to take you for a ride!
