The Appraisal Process

What You Can Expect From Us:

Our Purchasing Team will take your vehicle through an extensive appraisal process that includes the following:

  • Exterior of the vehicle
  • Interior of the vehicle
  • Drive your vehicle for a short 1 mile test drive to test your engine, transmission and 4×4 systems
  • Review the CARFAX® report for a better understanding of your vehicle history

This process allows for a more accurate valuation of your vehicle in less than 30 minutes! Our Purchasing Team will then conduct research based on our available data resources to provide you with the Peterson Automotive Collection “Sell Us Your Car Service” offer to buy your vehicle. Our offer to purchase is valid for seven (7) days and comes with a complimentary CARFAX® vehicle history report
