If you are thinking about selling your car, you want to get as much money for it as possible. If you put your car for sale online, you never know who is going to make an offer on your car. It might be a while before one comes in, but when you get an offer, how do you know if it is a good one or not? At the Glockner Family of Dealerships, we encourage you to take advantage of the instant cash offer from Kelley Blue Book. That way, you know exactly how much your car is worth, and you can bring it to our dealership to learn more. How does the process work, and what do you need to know?

Describe Your Car

Before you can get an instant offer for your car, you need to describe it. You will be asked to enter a variety of details about your car including the make and model. You will also include the year of your car. You will also be asked to judge the condition of your car. For example, if you have taken care of your car appropriately, it might be very close to new in terms of its condition. Or, if you have had your car for ten or twenty years, it might not quite be in the same condition; however, it still has value. You need to enter a variety of demographic details about your car before you can get an offer for it.

Receive an Instant Cash Offer

After you have entered the details regarding your car, you should receive an instant cash offer. It will take a few seconds for the website to calculate the value of your car, and you will receive an offer. Keep in mind that this does not necessarily mean that everyone is going to give you that much money for your car. The offer simply represents what Kelly Blue Book thinks your car is worth. The value of a car can change quickly, so the offer you get for your car from this tool will be good for seven days.

Bring Your Offer To Glockner Family of Dealerships

If you like the number you see, the next step is to bring it to the Glockner Family of Dealerships. We have a wide variety of dealerships available, and you can select the one that is most convenient for you. You should drive your car to the dealership and present the offer you received online. Make sure you bring the same car to the dealership. The dealership will verify the offer using the same questions. Then, they will take a look at your car to make sure nothing has been overlooked. If all of the details match, you will receive an offer for your car that matches the number on the sheet of paper.

Get Cash or Trade It In

Finally, you can either receive cash for your car or trade it in for a new one. If you find yourself in a pinch, we can put cash in your hand on the same day. That way, you can use it to cover an emergency expense. Or, if you are thinking about switching to a new car, we can take the value of your old car and apply it to the new one. This can significantly reduce the price of the new car. If you would like to learn more about how you can swap your old car for a new one, visit the Glockner Family of Dealerships today.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is my Instant Cash Offer calculated?


Your Instant Cash Offer is calculated using a proprietary tool that accounts for fluctuating market conditions and used car prices that may vary from day to day, like home or stock prices. The calculation includes multiple data sources and is based on factors that affect used car pricing such as:

  • Your Specific Vehicle Details
    Our tool factors in details that are specific to your vehicle and critical to its evaluation, including mechanical condition, options, interior and exterior, mileage, year, make and model.
  • Supply and Demand
    Consumers have a large role in determining a car's value. When more buyers demand a particular vehicle, and its inventory is down, the value goes up. For example, when gas prices are at a premium, fuel-efficient vehicles may be in higher demand and sell for higher prices.
  • Historical Trends
    Historically, some cars hold their value and are in higher demand than others. Similarly, sometimes transaction prices for vehicles steadily increase over time, making those cars a more sought after commodity.
  • Regional Differences
    Buyers may be willing to pay sellers higher prices for the same vehicle depending on regional differences. For example, buyers in rural areas may consider large trucks more valuable than buyers in a city where parking spaces are tight.
  • Local Market Influences
    We also take into account comparable vehicle sales in your area - this information may include dealer sales data, auction prices, and private seller prices from local advertisements.

How is an Instant Cash Offer different from Trade-in Value Range?


The Kelley Blue Book® Instant Cash Offer is:

  • A fixed offer applied toward your next car purchase or used t osell your current car to a Participating Dealer (pending inspection)
  • Valid for 7 Days
  • No need to negotiate because each offer is a fixed amount
  • Based on specific details related to the condition and features of your car, like installed options, dents, mechanical issues, and local market demand

Do I have to purchase a car with my Instant Cash Offer?


No. You can walk away with a check in hand or use the Offer towards the purchase of another vehicle.

How long is my Instant Cash Offer valid for?


Your Instant Cash Offer is valid for 7 days. After that time, you can resubmit your request, but your Offer amount may change.

Am I obligated to redeem my Instant Cash Offer?


No. There is no obligation to trade-in or sell your car by simply receiving an Offer. The choice is yours.

What information should I bring when I drop off my car?


To finalize the sale, bring the following information to a Participating Dealer:

  • Your Instant Cash Offer certificate
  • Your vehicle title.; If you don't have a title because your car is being financed, bring your lienholder information. If your car is leased, check with your leasing company to find out what paperwork they require.
  • Your vehicle registration
  • A valid driver's license or other government photo ID
  • All keys, keyless removes and manuals
  • Service and repair records
