How we determine the offer to buy your car

How we determine your offer

To get an offer on your vehicle, simply bring it to Hertz Car Sales, no appointment necessary. Your vehicle will be examined inside and out, and we'll give you an offer that day. 

Our car appraisers put your vehicle through a detailed process, ensuring you get a fair and honest offer. The process in determining your offer includes a physical inspection of your car. Since every car is different, our appraisers focus on:

  • The year, mileage, make, and model of your car
  • Interior/Exterior conditions
  • Aftermarket modifications
  • Structural damage
  • A test drive for mechanical issues
  • Your car's history report for possible flood or frame damage and any accidents

Our specially trained appraisers use 
Kelley Blue Book, a third-party independent estimator, as a guide to determine the value of your vehicle taking in consideration your vehicle's specific options and condition.  Using multiple sources of data, appraisers also check general factors that affect any car of similar make and model. Your car is compared against current and accurate market conditions, such as national sales trends and auction data.

Once our appraisers analyze the information, we'll give you a free written offer good for seven days. Our 
FAQ section can help answer any questions you have before your visit.
