Car Appraisal near me

If you are looking for a car appraisal near you, and you are in South East Florida, you’ve found us!

Getting a car appraisal before you buy, sell, or trade a car helps you get a good idea of the vehicle’s value and puts you in a better-informed position to negotiate. Several factors can affect a car’s value, such as your location and what kind of buyer you’re selling to (if you’re selling). Where you go to get your car appraisal could also affect the estimate you receive. Online guides, lenders, car dealers and professional appraisers can all offer car appraisals.

Maybe you’ve fallen in love with a used car and want to buy it — or maybe you’re planning to sell your own vehicle. In either case, you need to know what your vehicle is worth.

If you’re buying, selling, or trading a car, an auto appraisal gives you an accurate figure of what the vehicle is worth. Learn more about your appraisal options so you can decide which best fits your needs.

What is a car appraisal?

Also referred to as a valuation, a car appraisal assigns an estimated dollar value to a vehicle. There are a few situations where you might consider an appraisal:

  • When you plan to buy, sell or trade in a car and want to estimate the car’s fair market value.
  • To establish a dollar value of a vehicle when it’s considered an asset in a divorce, bankruptcy, or estate
  • To finance a vehicle older than, say, 10 years which will require an independent appraisal for the financing company.

Factors affecting a car appraisal:

Many factors can affect a car’s value, including make, model, age, mileage, condition, options, and location.

Doing your homework on a car’s value can help make you a more educated seller or buyer — and a better judge of whether a particular car deal is the right one for you. The information you get from a car appraisal can also come in handy during negotiations. And if you don’t feel comfortable with the final offer from a seller or buyer, remember that you can always walk away.
