The trade-in process at Shift starts with you finding the car of your choice online amongst our inventory of hundreds of vehicles. Once you find a car you like, you can schedule a test drive online and let us know that you’re planning to trade in your car. A Shift Advisor will work with you to get you an online estimate for your car, and set up a trade-in appointment for you that will include both an evaluation of your car and a test drive for the car you chose.
To prepare for your trade-in appointment, you will need documents to sell your car, a valid driver's license to test drive the new car, and your preferred form of payment to pay the difference. Your Shift Advisor will work you to ensure you are prepared prior to our Shift Concierge meeting you for the appointment.
If you expect to finance the difference on your trade-in, we offer a network of trusted lenders that can get you competitive rates. We recommend you get pre-qualified with us prior to your trade-in appointment, so that we can get you the best rates and speed up your appointment. Learn more about financing with us.
