Our Easy 3-Step Process

  1. Make an appointment to meet with an appraiser at one of our locations. West Los Angeles, Irvine, or San Diego.
  2. Immediately after the inspection and test drive you will receive a fair and honest offer to purchase your vehicle.
  3. If you’re satisfied with the offer, we handle all the DMV transfers and issue you a check on the spot.

It's So Easy!

  • The appraisal we provide is FREE.
  • We are the experts on evaluating your trade.
  • Based on decades of experience, each vehicle is carefully evaluated using the latest tools available, paying particular attention to market trends.
  • The offer to purchase will be good for 7 days or 350 miles (whichever comes first) from the date of the appraisal, with a $200 adjustment if the "purchase offer" is not accepted the same day.
  • The appraisal will be fully explained and all questions and concerns addressed, by the person writing the appraisal.
  • If you accept the offer, you will be paid with a Trade-In Solutions company check, unlike the competition that pays with bank drafts which are not immediately negotiable. 
  • We value your time. The entire process, from appraisal inspection, to documentation completion, and payment, will take 45 minutes or less.
