Selling a car privately isn't for everyone. It can take a lot of time and money to safety, recondition, advertise and show your vehicle. People may want to trade you their vehicle(or snowmobiles/quads etc.) or make payments to buy your vehicle. Plus not everyone is comfortable meeting and dealing with strangers.
When you bring in your vehicle, one of our appraisers will walk around your vehicle to inspect for body damage, check the condition of tires and windshield, snap a few photos and take it for a short test drive to estimate mechanical reconditioning.
We then upload the serial number and the photos of your vehicle to our appraisal software, which automatically checks all the vehicles for sale online within 750 kilometers of Brandon, Manitoba, downloads recent auction sale results, Canadian black book values and our Auto group history for vehicles similar to yours.
We then download a Complete CarFax History Report for your vehicle, which is yours to keep for free even if you decide not to sell us your vehicle.
Once we've checked the markets and estimated the specific reconditioning costs we place a value on your vehicle and then present you with a formal written offer which is valid for 7 days. If you like our offer, we can write you a cheque right away or you can take your appraisal home to think about it.
