Your offer is much more than a ballpark value

Your offer is not just a "used car value" like you find with online estimating programs including Kelley Blue Book. Our technically trained appraisers consider many factors about conditions specific to your car. Online estimating tools and many dealers will give you a general ballpark value. Our appraisal is a valid offer generated to give us the opportunity to buy your car!
