It’s always an exciting time when you’re on the market for your next used car. You’re getting a new-to-you vehicle, and it’s an opportunity to potentially upgrade in features or size or lower mileage. While there are many used cars for sale in Durham, they aren’t created equal.

Step 1: Apply Online for Financing

The first important step to purchasing a used car from us is to apply for financing online. You can easily do this through our website with just a simple form to get the process started. This serves two goals. First, it gives you a better idea of what you could afford monthly on your car purchase. No one wants to find the car of their dreams and then find out they can’t afford it. Second, it gives our team a head start to help you secure financing, so you aren’t spending extra time at our dealership after you selected your car. We’re all about making this an efficient process for you!

What applying online for financing looks like is giving us some of your information so you can then see your pre-qualification status. We ask for your contact information so our team can work directly with you to find the right fit. To get started, just visit the "Finance" tab on our website, click "Apply for Financing," and fill out the form. If you have any questions, our team is ready to chat with you to help you every step of the way. Once you apply for financing, you can cross that off your list and move one step closer to choosing your next car!

Step 2: Get Your Current Vehicle Appraised

One of the great benefits of purchasing a car with us is we want to buy your current car from you! There’s no need to list your car or frantically try to sell your current car before you can buy your next car. We’ve made it simple to get your current vehicle appraised on our website and begin the process of putting that vehicle’s value to your next car.

It’s important to get your current vehicle appraised before you start shopping for your next used car. This just helps nail down your budget even more and helps our team better serve you. How you get started is by visiting our website, click on the "Finance" tab, select "Value Your Trade," input your vehicle’s information, and you’ll get an instant True Market Value Report estimate. The next step is to bring your vehicle to CBS Quality Cars for an official vehicle appraisal. We promise a fair and competitive assessment of your car’s value so you can ultimately choose the next car you want.

A common question we receive is, can you trade in a car you still owe on? Yes! The more positive equity you have on your current car, the easier it is to trade it in. If you owe more than the car is worth, it’s still possible to trade it in, but there are some extra steps. The difference from what you owe after the loan is paid off from the trade-in will be rolled to your next car loan. Reach out to our team for any questions or help on trading in your current vehicle!

You can start your search from the comfort of your home or office on our website.
