Once you start the process to shop for another vehicle, you also need to think about what you would like to do with the car, truck, minivan, or SUV that you are driving right now. If you do not have experience with trade-ins, you can always talk with our team here at Dean Arbour Ford of Alpena. We have all of the insider tips and information on making your buying or leasing experience the smoothest process possible, including making sure that you get the highest value for your trade.

Cut Financing Costs

If you decide to trade in your vehicle for a brand-new Ford F-150 pickup or a Ford Edge, the funds will be available to use for a down payment on the purchase price. If you put this money together with any other funds that you have, this can significantly cut down on the cost of financing.


Trying to sell your vehicle on your own can turn into a bigger hassle than it needs to be. You may have to run advertising online or in print, then you have to work with buyers that may back out. Trading in your vehicle streamlines the process of getting another vehicle and not having to worry about what to do with your current ride.

We’re always here at our Alpena, MI Ford dealership to address all of your automotive needs. We also have convenient tools on our website where you can value your trade, apply for credit, and also learn all about the financing process. If you have any questions about trading in your ride or you want to learn about available specials, just give our sales team a call at your earliest convenience.
