Why Trade in Your Car with Us

Once you decide that it's time to upgrade and buy a new car, you'll have a few decisions to make about what you want to do with the car you're already driving. One option is selling it to a private buyer. While that may seem appealing, it can be a bit of a headache. First, you'll have to look up market value, market the car yourself, and possibly deal with drivers who want to haggle over price.

However, when you trade your car in at our dealership, you won't have to worry about any of that. Our finance center will take care of everything for you. We make it easy to get a good offer and can conveniently apply the value of your vehicle to the purchase of a new one.

Plus, buying a car from our Ford dealership offers its own unique advantages. For example, every new car we sell comes with over $1,600 in additional value. That's because some of the perks of shopping from Richmond Ford include:
