Trading in Your Vehicle | Phil Gilbert Toyota

Is it time to upgrade your Toyota? Trading in your old vehicle for a new one can feel like an overwhelming process, but at Phil Gilbert Toyota, there are just a few simple steps involved. You can count on a fair price and a wide selection of Toyota cars for sale at our Sydney showrooms, so that driving away in your new vehicle is a breeze.

When trading in a car, the price offered for your old car will be taken off what you pay for the new one. The final price you pay is known as the “change-over price”. Trading up at a dealership instead of selling privately ensures a fast and simple transaction, and you get to skip all that time wasted with tyre-kickers who probably won’t end up buying your car. 

Visit Phil Gilbert Toyota in Sydney and our knowledgeable staff will provide their valuation skills and leading customer service to give you a fair price and a positive experience.

1. Bring in your vehicle

The first step is to bring your vehicle to your closest Phil Gilbert Toyota Showroom, whether that’s in Croydon or Lidcombe. We’ll examine your vehicle and ask some questions about its service history and general condition, so we can provide an instant trade-in valuation. In most cases, you won’t need to carry out repairs on your car, which is something you would need to do if you were selling privately instead.

2. Browse our inventory

The exciting part! A member of our team will show you around our available collection of new Toyota vehicles and can find out more about what you’re looking for, so we can advise on the car that best suits your needs. If you already have a Toyota in mind, let us know so you can check it out and take it for a test drive!

3. Change-over price

Once you have received your trade-in valuation and have chosen your new car, we’ll establish your change-over price - i.e. how much you’ll ultimately pay to leave your old car and drive away in a new one. We’ll then guide you through the paperwork and discuss options such as Toyota Insurance to help you get back on the road with confidence.

4. Drive off in your new Toyota

Upon completion of the paperwork, we’ll finalise the transaction and you’re ready to drive away in your new Toyota and leave your previous vehicle with us.
