Getting Your Vehicle Appraised Online and In-Person

Getting your vehicle appraised online through Duval Buys cars is a great place to start. When you complete our online trade-in form, our system evaluates a variety of data to give you a complete assessment of your vehicle's value. To start, enter in the year, make, model, and trim of your car, all of which can be found on the title, registration, or bill of sale. From there, provide us with some contact information for you so that we may reach out to you for an in-person appointment.

For an in-person appraisal, you can visit one of our locations in the Jacksonville area. If you cannot come to us, we will send an appraiser out to your home. You can continue to work with us remotely after you get your appraisal, and we will send someone out to confirm its value in-person. We will come to your home, give your car a quick inspection to ensure its value is correct, and can pay quickly.

What Factors Do We Consider When Making an Offer for Your Vehicle?

When appraised in-person, our experienced appraiser will evaluate the vehicle up close. Using algorithms, our vehicle appraisal report evaluates several different factors when determining your vehicle's value. You'll receive this objective third-party report without charge. Many factors help us determine how much we're able to pay you for your vehicle. We always aim to give you a fair and competitive offer!

  • Supply: Your final trade-in appraisal report will include a map that shows how many vehicle like yours are on sale in or near the Jacksonville area.
  • Value Range: The value range is a scatterplot graph that shows where your vehicle's value falls in dollars and lists a few cars within a 50-mile radius that are like yours.
  • Demand: There will also be a small bar graph that tells you about your car's demand by showing you, on average, how many days it would take to sell your car, versus how long it would take to sell the average vehicle like yours. If the bar for your car is lower than that of the average, it means that your car is in higher demand and that you should be able to sell it within a shorter time frame.
  • Costs: The form evaluates potential costs associated with your vehicle and how much its value can be decreased through factors like depreciation, advertising costs, net profit, and more.
  • Estimated Value: At the bottom of your trade-in form will be a total value range for your vehicle. Our team will assess your car's condition in-person and, depending on any repairs it may need, will make you an offer within this dollar range. You may not receive the highest value possible.
  • Condition: Our appraisers will look at the car's title and its past service records when appraising the car in-person. If there are any discrepancies that exist between the report and your car's actual condition, we will make a note of it. Likewise, if you still owe money on the car, or it needs critical repairs, we will factor these costs in when appraising it.
