If you’ve been looking around at Toyota of Grand Rapids or looking into to CarMax, you may be thinking of trading in what you’re currently driving. We don’t recommend that. Dealers typically pocket 60-70% of the value of your vehicle. By contrast, a car charity donation in Grand Rapids enables you to write off 100% of the sale price of your car.
Believe it or not, there’s actually research that shows the validity of those findings. There have been more than one study finding that dealers actually raise the price of the new car when they find out you have a trade-in! They assume you’ll pay what they ask because most people find a favorite car and will pay asking price for it. The problem is this causes you to lose value when you trade in a car.
