Car Appraisal – How to Find out What Your Car Is Worth

car appraisal

If you’re tired of paying for costly repairs on your current car, it may be time for a new set of wheels. And when you’re looking to upgrade to a later model car, you may want to consider trading in your old car. Presenting a trade-in car at the time of purchase is the best method of lowering the price of the vehicle. However, you don’t have a clue how to find out what your vehicle is worth. Don’t fret! A car appraisal is easy to get at Peters Auto Mall.

Kevin and Angie Peters started Peters Auto Mall in 1993 with a vision to make used car buying enjoyable. We strive with each transaction, including trade-ins, for 100% customer satisfaction. Our appraisers will perform an inspection of your vehicle to make sure you get top dollar for your trade in. Moreover, if you’re in the market for a quality used car, you’re sure to find it on our lot. Plus, we have an abundance of financing options to make it happen. Even if you have a low credit score, we can find affordable financing for you.

Benefits of Buying a Used Car

It used to be that many people shunned buying a used car. Today, however, the used car market is robust and thriving. Since new cars are so expensive, many shoppers are turning to the used car market for the best values. In fact, the average price of 3-year-old used car is a little less than half what it would cost new. With most of the depreciation occurring in the first 3 years of a car’s life, used cars retain more of their value.

Moreover, you can save money on other fees associated with owning a car. Generally, insurance rates and registration fees are based on a car’s value. A lower car value means you’ll pay less on these expenses. And with cars lasting longer, past the 200,000-mile mark, you could have years of dependability.

What Is Your Vehicle Worth?

If you’re considering trading in your car, you’ll first need to know its worth. This is easy to do using our online form. Answer a few questions about your vehicle and within 48 hours we’ll get back to you with an estimate. Then, at your convenience, bring your car down to Peters Auto Mall for an appraisal of your vehicle.

Our full car appraisal takes about 20 minutes. The inspection covers the condition of the interior and exterior, engine and transmission. We’ll review the options, features, and mileage of your car. Finally, we’ll check the vehicle’s history report. After analyzing all the data, we’ll present you with an offer. If you accept our offer, you’ll sign the car’s title over to us. Then, we’ll apply the amount toward the purchase price of your new car.  However, if you need some time to think about it, you can; our offer is good for 7 days.

What Documents Do I Need?

When you bring your vehicle in for an appraisal, you may see the car you want. We can let you drive your dream car home that day providing you have the necessary paperwork with you. First, if you own your car, you’ll need the title with all title holders present. On the other hand, if you still owe money on the vehicle, please bring the payoff information. You can easily obtain this by simply calling your lender and requesting a payoff statement. Additionally, you’ll need the current registration for the trade-in and a valid driver’s license. Finally, please bring all the keys and remotes.

Moreover, if you’ve used our pre-approval process, we can get you on the road even faster. It’s easy and requires only a few minutes of your time. Simply answer a few questions, and in seconds you can see your credit score and have pre-approval.
