MaxTradeIn Expands into Nashville, Moline, Champaign and Terre Haute and Surpasses $155 Million in Consumer Offers

INDIANAPOLIS (December 6, 2013)  MaxTradeIn™, the free online marketplace that gives car owners the ability to trade in or sell their used vehicle by selecting trusted local dealers to compete for their business, is now available to customers and dealerships in Champaign and Moline, lllinois, Terre Haute, Indiana and Nashville, Tennessee.

MaxTradeIn has experienced rapid growth since first launching in Indianapolis in late 2012. More than $155 million in offers have been made by nearly 200 car dealers throughout the Midwest that subscribe to the service.

The traditional trade-in process requires consumers to do a lot of research, drive from dealership to dealership and be an expert negotiator. MaxTradeIn offers consumers an easy way to receive multiple offers from local car dealers during a free 48-hour listing period, eliminating the stress of negotiating with several dealers or relying on suggested book values for their vehicle's worth.

“Your vehicle’s value can be influenced by several factors, including sales activity, current market trends, competition and location. Because of this negotiating offers for your trade-in or vehicle sale can be one of the most stressful parts of the car buying process,” said Justin Bates, CEO and co-founder of MaxTradeIn. “MaxTradeIn takes those variables off the table and connects you with trusted dealers in your area. Our dealers provide real-time trade-in and sale offers on your car—not ranges or estimates like you find online or in guide books.”

Founded by a team with more than 50 years combined leadership experience in the automotive sales industry, MaxTradeIn is also valuable to dealerships. The company offers two services that allow car dealerships to receive high-quality consumer leads on individuals who want to trade in or sell their used vehicle and purchase a new one:™ and MaxTradeIn DealerDirect™.

Dealerships that subscribe to are connected directly to qualified car buyers in their market who are seeking sale or trade-in offers on their used vehicle from as many as six dealers in their area.

“Other sites only provide estimated values and don’t provide details we as a dealership need to make a fair offer. MaxTradeIn educates customers about the trade-in and sell processes and directs them to include their VIN number, photos and details about their vehicle,” said Ben Weir, General Manager at Pearson Ford.” Because of this, we get more detailed listings and qualified customers with better expectations.This leads to more satisfied customers. ”

MaxTradeIn DealerDirect is a tool that is seamlessly integrated into a subscribing dealership’s existing website and enables site visitors to enter their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and a few quick details about their used car to receive a nearly instant offer directly from that dealer when selling or trading in their vehicle.

“MaxTradeIn DealerDirect is a great way to mainstream leads to your dealership website,” said Rusty Lasley, Internet manager at Dugan Chevrolet. “Between the dashboard and email notifications, it’s hard to miss a sale opportunity or buy for your used car inventory.”
