If you’re thinking of buying or leasing one of our new Porsche cars and you have a vehicle, you might be wondering what would happen if you decided to trade in your current automobile. While you don’t normally have to buy or lease a vehicle in order to sell your car to a dealership, people normally trade in their current car in order to use the proceeds as a down payment on another automobile.

Even when our Porsche dealership was still known as Brumos Porsche, we made trading in a vehicle easy at our location. In fact, we make the process so simple, you can even get an idea of what your vehicle is worth from the comfort of your own home by using the trade-in value estimator on our website. To use this tool, visit our website, click the New Vehicles tab, and then select Value Your Trade-In.

Before you visit our Porsche dealership in Florida to trade in your vehicle, make sure you clean it and remove your personal belongings. Be sure you have all of the necessary paperwork, such as the vehicle’s title if you own the car outright, and all of the automobile’s accessories (e.g. spare tire, extra key fobs) are available when you stop by our location, too.

When you’re here, let our sales staff know you have a trade. We’ll perform a visual inspection of your car and one of our factory-trained technicians will check out some of the vehicle’s mechanics. We may even take your automobile for a test drive! In addition, we’re going to check your car’s vehicle history.

Once we’re done, we’ll present an offer to you. Once you accept our offer, the paperwork will begin but it shouldn’t take too long to complete, especially if you hold the title for the car you’re trading in.
