How Toyota of Orlando gets used cars! 

Toyota of Orlando

When shopping for a used car, we always recommend doing research on the vehicle model, make, and on the car itself. It's important to know what kind of history the vehicle has had prior to signing on the dotted line. At Toyota of Orlando we want to ensure that we offer our drivers reliable and affordable cars. That's why we offer free Carfax reports on the preowned vehicles. However, we also want to explain to your where the used cars come from. There are two places where we get our used vehicle inventory: as a trade-in or at an auction. 


Most drivers are familiar with the trade-in process. Most new car buyers will trade-in their old car in order to get into a newer vehicle. This helps the customer get rid of the vehicle they had and invest into a newer ride. However, prior to the trade-in being approved the vehicle must go through a series of inspections to ensure it's in good shape for resale. Once that's complete, our dealership will clean and prepare the vehicle before it goes out on our lot. 


Auctions are usually held to help other dealers and manufacturers rid of some their late-model cars. Some of the vehicles found at auctions are end-of-lease vehicles, rental cars, finance repossession vehicles, and any other vehicles that were brought back to the factory. However, before bidding on a car our used car dealership will inspect it to ensure it's in proper shape for our drivers.
