A List of How We Determine Used Car Values
At a certain point, every car owner has the thought, “I want to sell my car for cash.” Or they want to know, “How do I get the most money for my used car?” These are common questions for people who want or need to sell their used car. Most people want to sell their car for max value with the least hassle. Often, their first thought is to trade in their used car.
When determining the trade-in value of a used car, many people ask, “What things do car dealerships look at when they buy used cars?” The #1 thing car dealerships look at when calculating the value of your car is how much they think they can sell your car for. Their goal is to make a profit off you, NOT to give you the most cash for your car.
That’s messed up, right? We think so too! At Get400More.com, we buy used cars and pay more than dealerships, CarMax, and everyone else. How? Because we don’t use online car calculators or use trade-in values when evaluating how much your car is worth. Our local car buyers in Raleigh and Wilmington look at five main things when writing a cash offer for your used car.
#1 –Your Current Cash Offer, If You Have One
At Get400More.com, we guarantee we’ll beat ANY cash offer, on average, by $400. If we don’t, just send us your “Bill of Sale” and we’ll write you a check for $100. We pay more money for used cars because we don’t sell cars or accept trade-ins. Get400More.com wants to buy your car, and we’ll pay more to get it! We’ll even come to you and our deals typically only take 15 minutes.
Don’t already have an offer for your car? No problem! We’ll still give you the best cash offer for your car.
#2 – Vehicle Make and Model
We don’t rely on book values or online car calculators to determine the value of your car. Our local car buyers in Raleigh and Wilmington take time to learn about your vehicle before writing a cash offer to buy your car, truck or SUV. Our process starts with your vehicle’s make and model. We’ve helped thousands of people in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Wilmington, Fayetteville surrounding areas sell their car for more money!

#3 – Vehicle History
Online car calculators, CarMax and local dealerships don’t place much value on vehicle history when you sell them your car. Get400More.com does! We consider things such as mileage, interior and exterior condition, maintenance records, incidents, and more. If you’re curious about the value of your car, simply text a picture of your vehicle’s VIN number and mileage to our Raleigh car buyer at (919) 999-2817 or our Wilmington car buyer at (910) 550-3586. The VIN number can be found on the driver’s side dash, inside the driver’s side door, on the registration card, and the title of the car. If you already have a written cash offer for your car, send us a picture of that too!
#4 – Vehicle Operating Condition
Get400More.com does not buy junk cars. Your vehicle must be in running condition and must be able to pass all North Carolina safety and emissions inspections. After you call or text one of our local car buyers, they will schedule a time to meet with you and test drive your vehicle. If everything checks out, they’ll give you a check that you can cash the same day! We’ll come to you and the entire meeting typically takes 15 minutes or less.
#5 – Vehicle Ownership Status
If you still owe money on your vehicle, which can complicate things when you sell your vehicle to TrueCar, Autotrader, CarMax or a local dealership. Get400More.com will still write you the best cash offer for your car, even if you owe money on it. Simply provide us with a printed copy of the 15-day payoff amount of your loan from your lien holder. If you owe more on your vehicle than our cash offer, you’ll need to pay us the difference.
