Trade In

sign up for trade in valuation

A car trade-in is a process where a car owner exchanges their current vehicle as partial payment for a new or used car at Automark. Automark assesses the value of the trade-in vehicle and offers an amount, which is then applied as a credit toward the purchase price of another vehicle.

Trade-in Process:

  1. Documentation: The vehicle owner intending to trade in their vehicle presents a copy of their national ID and the vehicle’s logbook.
  2. Assessment: Automark conducts a thorough 95-point inspection of the trade-in vehicle to determine its condition, mileage, and market value. This inspection includes checking for mechanical issues, cosmetic damage, and overall wear and tear. The process typically takes 45 minutes to one hour.
  3. Offer: Based on the assessment, Automark makes an offer to the car owner for consideration within 24 hours.
  4. Credit Application: If the car owner accepts the offer, the trade-in value is applied as a credit towards the purchase price of the new or used car they wish to buy. This reduces the amount the buyer needs to finance or pay out-of-pocket to acquire the new vehicle.
  5. Transaction Completion: The car owner and Automark finalize the purchase of the new or used car by signing the trade-in agreements and trading in the old vehicle as part of the deal.
  6. Drive Away: Finally, upon presenting the original logbook for their old vehicle, the customer can drive away with their newly purchased vehicle, ensuring a completely hassle-free and satisfying experience.


  1. Convenience: Streamlines the process of replacing your old car with a new one, saving valuable time and effort.
  2. Risk Free: Experience a reliable and secure transaction with a trusted company.
  3. Cost Savings: Trade-in substantially lowers the financial burden, reducing the amount required for financing or out-of-pocket expenses when purchasing a new vehicle.
