Do I need to make an appointment?
It isn't necessary, but we suggest it because we want to make sure our Used Car Manager is available to you. You can contact our Used Car Manager at (781) 261-5000.
Why do you want my car?
We rely on obtaining quality used vehicles for our pre-owned inventory - demand is greatly outpacing our supply even with all of the trade-ins we take in.
Can't I just sell my car myself?
Absolutely, but we can save you a few headaches if you are interested. When you sell your car yourself you are responsible for
What happens to the cars we buy?
As long as the car passes our standards for resale - which include a thorough safety check, a multi-point inspection and a thorough reconditioning - we offer the car for resale. For cars which end up not passing our criteria, we send them to local automotive auctions.
Can't I just appraise my car online?
There are many quality tools and programs online to estimate how much your current vehicle is worth. These tools are a starting point to get a feel for the range of what your car may be worth. But ultimately there is nothing that takes the place of us seeing and - more importantly - driving your vehicle. Once we physically evaluate your car, we can give you our concrete opinion on what it is worth to us.
What goes into our appraisal?
There are many factors in the appraisal process including:
How will modifications I made to my car affect the appraisal?
The answer is "it depends", sometimes an added feature can improve the value of your car, sometimes it can have a negative impact (especially if it voids the factory warranty). Every situation is unique.
What should I bring with me?
If you are thinking about an immediate sale, bring your car's title, registration and any payoff information. All titleholders should be present and you'll need your IDs.
If you have maintenance records, bring them - they exhibit the care you took to keep your car in good condition. Please bring all of the keys, remotes and owners manuals - these are like gold in the used car business!
What happens if I disagree with you valuation of my car?
Simply walk away - this is a no-obligation process. The most important thing to understand is that we approach the appraisal process with the intent of reselling your vehicle. We take into account market factors, as well as what our repair, maintenance and reconditioning costs will be to bring a vehicle up to our resale standards. Many times we can easily work out a price for your car which both of us think is fair. But if what we come up with doesn't correlate with what you think, then we thank you for the opportunity and we both move on.
