How Do We Come Up With Your Offer?

The appraisers at our Pennsylvania Honda dealership are experienced and will provide you with an offer that you're sure to love! There are a few factors we consider when appraising your vehicle:

Vehicle Condition

One of the most important factors influencing the price of your car is its overall condition. It's important to keep both the inside and outside of your vehicle clean and undamaged to get a good deal. At Apple Honda, we have a team of professionals who examine every part of your trade to ensure it's in good condition aside from normal wear and tear.

Features & Packages

Most car manufacturers offer a variety of trim levels for their vehicles. They may also offer special security, off-roading, navigation, entertainment, or performance packages for select vehicles. If your car has any of these additional features, it may be worth more when we appraise it.

Vehicle History Report

A vehicle history report is a document that gives an overview of all the services your car has received and records any crashes it's been involved in. As part of the appraisal process, our technicians will review your report and factor it into the final price. Ideally, the vehicle will have a record of regular maintenance with few major repairs and accidents.

Test-Drive Your Car

For us to value your car, it's important to see how it actually performs on the road. When we appraise your trade-in, one of our trained technicians will take it for a quick spin. This allows them to gauge the performance of basic functions, such as steering and braking.

Year, Make, and Model

A vehicle's original price is one factor that our technicians consider when making an appraisal. They'll consider the car's make, model, production year, and mileage to help them make a price estimate. It's important to note that we can buy cars of any make, not just Hondas.

What Do I Need To Sell or Trade In My Car?

When you bring your car in for sale, it's important to bring your car's title. This demonstrates your ownership of the vehicle and your ability to sell it. Also, try to make that you have information on your car payments and bring the individual listed on the title if isn't you. It's also important to bring current and valid registration for your vehicle to help ensure we're able to give you an offer.

To validate your registration and title, we'll need an up-to-date, state-issued photo ID. If there is more than one person listed on the title, make sure they're all present with ID. Finally, it's important to bring the vehicle's original keys and fobs. If you don't have the original keys, that's OK, but it may affect the final payment you receive.

Vehicle Title

We'll need your car's title, if you have it, or your payoff information. Whoever is listed on the car's title should be present when you visit our dealership.

Registration

A valid and current registration for your vehicle. This way, we can confirm ownership of the vehicle.

Valid ID

A valid state-issued photo ID. If there is more than one titleholder, everyone must have their ID with them!

Keys

All keys, key fobs or remotes! If the original keys are missing, the offer for your vehicle may have to be adjusted.

Our Offer Is Good For Six Days.
