Start Your Car Appraisal
An important first step in the car buying process is determining your current car’s worth.
This helps you decide whether to sell it or trade it in, and plan for your next car purchase. Our Sales Consultants make car appraisals easy with no cost or obligation to purchase.
Here’s how our car appraisals work:
Inspect the car’s current condition.
The first thing we do to determine your car’s current value is conduct an in-person inspection, mechanical review, and test drive. We will note factors that impact your car’s worth, including its year, make, model, trim level, present mileage, signs of wear, and more.
Inspect the car’s history.
Next, we run a CARFAX Vehicle History Report™ using your car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) to check for previous accidents, damage, recalls, etc., and look at the car’s service records.
Appraise the car.
We enter your vehicle’s condition and specifications – including engine type and features like entertainment system, leather seats and moon roof – into our online vehicle valuation tool to determine your Kelley Blue Book® trade-in value. Keep in mind that used cars rarely qualify as “excellent condition,” even when well-maintained.
Present the value and offer.
Lastly, we share your car’s value with you, along with our written trade-in offer, which is good for 7 days or 300 miles , whichever comes first.
