If someone has a trade-in with their vehicle, we'll give them market value for it.
A lot of trade-ins that our customers have are not running, or may not have a title, or they've got some issue that prevents them from being able to get it to us. So we'll tow the trade in here. We take trade-ins without titles. We try to make it as easy as possible for our customers. We accommodate them and get that taken care of.
The trade-in goes toward the down payment of the vehicle.
We have vehicles available for as low as $199 – we try to make it as easy as possible for someone who needs a vehicle to ride away in one.
Once we get the car in, we put it into the shop where it goes through an extensive process. We check out all of the factors that make for a safe well-performing car. That includes tires.
If tires are looking worn, we replace them. We fix the air conditioner, we replace belts, hoses, fluids, and make sure that all the fluids are in good shape. We check for any drivability issues.
We road test the cars before, during, and after the reconditioning process to make sure that the car drives well, shifts smoothly, the air conditioning blows cold, and that all the accessories work. Out technicians make sure all the lights are in good, proper working order.
All told, we invest a good amount of money in making sure each car we sell is reliable, safe, and drivable -- generally anywhere from $800 to $1,500 a car.
After all that, we put it out a lot for sale and provide a free three-year, 36,000-mile warranty that covers that covers the engine, the transmission, the powertrain, the alternator, the radiator, the starter, and the air conditioner. We provide free oil changes for as long as someone owns the car, even if it’s paid off.
