Carvana and Vroom do not require photos or inspections, Shift will come out and look at the vehicle before finalizing the numbers. You didn't try Carvana?Carmax $14,350
All of the appraisals were done online. I’m hoping when they physically see the car it’s close to what was stated online.
I just want to turn in my lease. I’m trying to minimize driving it. Do I even bother going to the VW dealership?
2 weeks later, it looks like they cleaned up the CX5, used PDR on dents, some touch up and possibly clearcoat, and listed it for almost $7k more than they paid us. Good for them if they can get that, not even mad:Here's a recent datapoint.
2015 Mazda CX5 FWD Grand Touring
39,000 miles, some dings here and there and a comprehensive claim on carfax for a windshield/dash repair.
Carvana offered $11,300
Carmax offered $12,100 (online via the Edmunds estimator)
Volvo dealer where we bought a new XC60 offered $9,300
Needless to say, the next day it went to Carmax and we left with a check for $12,100
I believe their offer print allows them to take money off if the vehicle doesn't meet their expectations or condition was misrepresented. my girlfriend traded her Subaru Outback in for a Golf Alltrack and the full quote was honored after they received and inspected the vehicle.What does carvana do about damage to a car? Their questionaire is pretty vague about this.
I have a friend looking to sell a one owner 2014 BMW X3 with 61,000 miles. The car has some damage to the front bumper cover and a deep scratch to one of the doors.
I am just wondering if they change the offer on site when they come to pick up the car or how any of that works???
Just to follow up. Shift called me yesterday to ask me if I was still interested in selling my car to them. I guess they were really wanted my Corolla but obviously I sold it already but I suppose they are pursuing some deals if they think you're serious to sell.My 09 Corolla XRS manuel had a high estimate of $5,000 from Shift (was $6,000 a month ago) if the car was inspected and approved, and all the other estimates done with Vroom, Carvana and Edmunds were slightly less than $4K.
Being that my Corolla was a stick, I was concerned that no one would want to buy it since beige is easiest to sell, but it turns out that I had two friends that were interested, and I ended up selling it to one of them for more than any of them. I just had to make a short 200 mile trip to sell it off, but I'll be able to see it again. (From So Cal to Nor Cal, where it was made)
Ewww. I replaced the stock Toyo's with Pirellis a few years ago when the Toyo's got prematurely loud. The Pirellis worked great and seemed to have a bunch of life left but maybe brand new tires of any kind are a plus for their sales?^ Looks like it also has a fresh set of Laufenns
Just a quick follow up to my Carvana experience. Flawless the whole way! They set up an appt. for Sunday 1/31 to pick up the LS460. They arrived on time, took a few photos, inspected the car, and had me sign a few docs. 5 mins later they were gone, having left a lockbox with the keys on the LS saying that a flatbed would be by shortly for pickup. An hour later the LS was loaded an gone. The ACH transfer hit my checking account today. Very happy with the whole experience and got a very fair price.With my wife gone to Louisiana for most of the year, back helping her military daughter with a newborn, we thought we'd sell her 2014 Lexus LS460. Amazing car, and I love it, but with another Lexus v8 in the garage (2019 GX460), we really don't need to giants around here. KBB trade in value ranges from low of $25,122 to high of $28,505. Here's the offers I got:
Shift: Lowball of $20,500
Vroom: Mid lowball of $23,595
Carvana: Score! $28,100!
I did all the online uploads of docs at Carvana last night and scheduled my ACH $$ transfer and pick up next week. Easy peasy. Sure I could have tried private party and maybe got $29500, but time is money in my world.
Funny story. This morning my cell rings and it's Shift wanting to know if I'm ready to proceed with their $20,500 offer. I told the nice lady that I was going with Carvana and their offer was nearly $8k higher. Click, the Beeotch hung up on me! Nice job Shift!
