I didn't have a trade-in but I think you will need to complete that transaction at your dealer before PCD. I had to pay for my car at the dealer several weeks before PCD. Getting the timing of the PCD seems to be something the CAs are not all up on - mine seemed to struggle too. You might try searching posts by Jonathan (aka "I-Won-Today") who works at the PC, I think he explains when a time can be set and did it fairly recently. Look at post 2 in this thread for scheduling information:

If there is a major issue with the car, I think you'd have to work that out with the dealer too. The performance center touched up a very small chip in my paint as I waited, however. It took close to an hour but saved me a trip to the dealer. They have a full shop at the PC and train dealer workers so if you find something they can fix and you're willing to wait, they will try to take care of it.

Your CA should arrange for your tag and other registration materials to be sent to the PC and they will put it on your car. They do not attach the license plate(s) until you are there, however. So if you don't want the front drilled and bring a different mount they can take care of it (SC does not have a front tag). I think I ended up carrying my tag up there because the CA messed up and didn't get it in time for it to be shipped (or he had it shipped to the dealership and didn't feel like shipping it to the PC). I think the PC can put on a temporary tag if your CA really messes up.
