WE'LL GIVE YOU MORE, GUARANTEED!*
INTERESTING FACT: most dealerships make a lot of money on vehicles that are traded in the dealership. Many New Car Sales departments at traditional dealerships lose cash and depend on their Used Car departments to pick up the slack. We Buy Cars Today was founded by a car enthusiast who used to work at many of those stores. Our mission is simple: quickly put more MONEY IN YOUR POCKET!
Have you ever had buyer's or seller's remorse? Ever been taken advantage of by people or companies in the car business?
We know how the car business work first hand and didn't like the unnecessary runaround. I opened We Buy Cars Today, for two primary reasons.
The first is so we can quickly put more money in your pocket when it's time to part ways with your vehicle, and the second is, so we don't have to buy cars from the stereotypical and predatory bad-guys and gals in the car business.
Our offers usually fall between a typical big-box dealership's trade-in value and higher offer you'd get if you sold your vehicle through a private party transaction, but without the hassle!
More on why you should sell us your car... If you're thinking about picking up a new vehicle, you're likely debating trading your vehicle into a dealership. You may not want to deal with the hassle of trying to sell your used car, but we make the process very simple! As a leading used car buyer, we will always offer a more significant cash value offer for your vehicle than a dealership will.

Many new car sales departments lose money when they sell vehicles. Age of inventory, lack of demand, and intense competition are a few of the reasons why.
Every day a new vehicle goes unsold is another small loss that continues to mount until it's finally purchased. As a result, it often falls to the used car sales departments to turn a profit if new vehicles aren't selling at the pace they hoped.
Many dealerships make a killing on traded-in vehicles. These departments offer minimal trade-in value on your used car before selling it at a much higher cost. Don't let a dealership shortchange you on your vehicle's worth!
We make the process a simple one. Fill out our handy questionnaire, and we will be in touch with you as soon as we can--we'll make you a prompt offer. Plus, when you choose to sell your used car to us and is not able to bring in your vehicle, we can come to your location to pick up it is up and leave you with payment in hand.
We buy used cars of all makes and models. If you have any questions about the process, feel free to give us a call. If there's one thing you take away from this, it's that you should never let a dealership take advantage of you.

2) WHAT ARE THE FACTORS THAT AFFECT A VEHICLE'S APPRAISAL VALUE?
A. WHAT ARE THE FACTORS THAT AFFECT A VEHICLE'S APPRAISAL VALUE?
A general rule of thumb is that as mileage increases, the wear and tear on the vehicle also increase--it stands to reason a car with more miles on it will not sell as quickly as a vehicle with fewer miles. High mileage will negatively impact the sale price, and it's often the most significant determining factor.
Next up is the vehicle's condition. While one may think the condition and mileage go hand in hand, this isn't necessarily the case. One could have a car with very low mileage that did not receive the proper care. You'll want to keep the exterior and interior as clean and intact as possible. Including minor dents and dings, as well as the state of the upholstery.
MAINTENANCE AND ACCIDENT HISTORY
Prospective buyers may check a vehicle's services records to ensure the previous owner adequately maintained the car. Involvement in a severe accident, or a history of critical mechanical failures, really hurt future resale value.
ENSURING YOU GET A GOOD DEAL
Your main takeaway from this is that you should not take one valuation source as gospel. After performing a fair assessment of your vehicle's actual cosmetic and mechanical condition, you should check various appraisal sources for a range of values that will help you to come up with a realistic number. It's important to know that you probably aren't going to get a top-dollar sales price for your vehicle unless it's in top-dollar condition and you and the right retail buyer for it.
Putting this into practice will give you a leg up on the competition, whether you want to buy a new or used vehicle or when you decide to sell your car. At the very least, it should help you manage your expectations in regards to how much you should be able to get for your vehicle. Even so, it would help if you were mindful of the other factors that affect vehicle appraisal, such as what the buyer will do with the vehicle.
