How Do We Appraise Your Vehicle?

We have implemented the most advanced vehicle appraisal process in the country. This process combines the experience of Certified Appraisers along with the industry’s latest technology.

To start, we do a road test to assess the vehicle’s mechanical condition. We inspect your car’s interior andexterior to establish its condition in relation to its age. Excessive wear can lower the estimate of your car value.

We check the vehicle’s age and mileage. We inspect the paint, repairs to the body, scratches and bumps.

Next, we utilize the following industry-leading technologies:


vAuto is an online technology we use to search over 10,000 websites every hour in real-time and compare what private sellers and dealers are asking for similar vehicles.

The CARFAX® Vehicle Valuation Report provides us with real-time wholesale values of vehicles just like yours from the Adesa Dealer Auctions. We also recieve regional historical transaction prices of what other dealerships in Canada actually sold vehicles just like yours for.

TradeRev is an online system to participate in real-time vehicle auctions. It allows us to obtain instant bids from buyers across Canada, and know what others are willing to pay for the vehicle, right now.

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

Every car has a unique 17 digit number, called its Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). We’ll need your vehicle’s VIN in order to look up its features and get bids for it.

You can find your VIN as a barcode on your vehicle or on your insurance.

Common locations of a VIN barcode:
