Benefits of trading in. 

Save time and hassles - no stress.

Trying to sell your car privately can be a hassle.  It is stress you don't need.  You have to do things like take photos, post it online, figuring out if you want to try a free listing or pay for an on-line listing to get more exposure.  You will need to  field phone calls, answer e-mails and have strangers come to your home for test drives. You also need to ensure your car is kept clean at all times, maintained and all parts are working to get a good offer and chance of selling it.  You will probably be asked to hold it while people try to work out their financing.  Trading your vehicle with us saves you the hassles, waste of time and headaches.

Save on taxes.

When you trade in your vehicle and purchase another vehicle, you only pay purchase and use (sales) tax on the difference between the trade-in value and the price of the vehicle you are purchasing.  That saves you money, reducing monthly payments or the cash outlay.  Consider this a $15,000 trade at Vermont's 6% tax rate equals $900.  That is a lot of money you save up front by trading.
