Our Comprehensive Online Trade-In Form at Total Motors

At Total Motors, our online appraisal form is significantly more detailed than those you might find from other dealerships, but it is these details that allow you to get the most current and accurate value of what your vehicle is worth. You may notice that we ask some questions often not asked by other dealers.

We need basic information like your contact details and which location at Total Motors where you'd like to complete the trade-in process. We then need key information about your vehicle such as make and model, model year, VIN, accrued mileage, engine type, exterior color, transmission type, number of doors, and drivetrain type. We also take into consideration various features that include leather interior, navigation system, sunroof, DVD player, satellite radio, and CD player. We then need to know if your current vehicle was ever a lease or rental return, if your odometer is operational and accurate, whether you can provide copies of service records, who has the official title to the vehicle, and if there are any lien holders. You'll then do a self-evaluation using a 1-10 rating scale for the following aspects of your vehicle:

        Overall body condition - are there any dents, scratches, rust, or noticeable physical damage?

        Engine - how is the running condition?

        Glass - any scratches, chips, or cracks?

        Exhaust - is it rusted? Any leaking or noticeable noises?

        Tires - are they properly aligned and inflated? How much wear and tear is noticeable?

        Transmission/clutch - any slipping, grinding, or hard shift happening?

        Interior - do you see any uncleanable stains, large rips or tears, burns, or faded or worn material?

Your responses to these questions can make a major impact on what your vehicle is worth, so please answer them in an honest and careful fashion.

Finally, we want to make sure that all options and accessories are functioning properly, if your vehicle has ever been in any accidents (and if so, what the cost of repairs amounted to), whether there has been a paint job done, if you bought your vehicle new or used, description of existing damage, and if the title is designated "Salvage" or "Reconstructed."
