How Do We Make Our Offers?

Several factors influence the value we offer you for your vehicle. Online tools that predict value based off the year, make, and model are helpful, but they don't always give a full story of the vehicle. That's why our experts consider additional information like:

Vehicle Condition

One thing we look for when buying a vehicle is vehicle condition. This means looking for any interior or exterior damage. The quality of the upholstery, exterior paint, and interior features can help us assign a condition to the car and make an informed decision about its value.

Vehicle History

Vehicles that are well-maintained and free from damage often carry greater values than those with infrequent maintenance records or questionable histories. We can use our system to learn more about the vehicle, like if it's been in an accident or how many owners it's had. All these details provide us with important information about your vehicle.

Vehicle Specifications

The make, year, and model of your car are also significant for our valuation. We use this information combined with everything else we know about your car to ensure our offer is fair and reflective of the care and time you've put into your vehicle. We also look at any features or special packages your car has. These are things like heated seats, navigation systems, or special safety features.

How Long Does an Offer Last?

When we make an offer, you have six days to decide how you'd like to proceed. We want to make sure you've had ample time to think about your offer and decide what your next steps are. Whenever you're ready to sell your vehicle or trade it in for a new Ford, we're here to help make it happen.

What Do You Need To Sell Your Car?

There are a few things we require in order to buy your car legally and to ensure we have all the information we need. Here's a list of what to bring when you come in to sell your vehicle:


Your vehicle's title is the document that officially recognizes the owner of the vehicle and provides other important information, like the car's VIN number. Be sure to bring your title with you so we can complete the sale legitimately and learn more about the vehicle's history. If your name isn't on the title, you can have the owner come with you to the dealership or call our office to help us work with your specific situation.


We also need the registration for the vehicle. This document, like the title, connects the owner to the vehicle and tells us you've followed all the right procedures regarding taxation and registration with the state. Make sure your registration is current before coming in to sell your vehicle.


Bring in your primary key along with all spare keys and key accessories you have for your vehicle. We sometimes have to adjust offers if original keys are missing in the sale. Keys, remotes, and key fobs are all important to have when selling your car.

Photo ID

Finally, be sure to bring a government-issued photo ID. If you are not the titleholder, or there is more than one title holder, know that every party on the title needs a photo ID for the sale. Make sure your ID is valid and not expired to help keep the process seamless and easy.

Tips for Selling Your Car

Here are some tips that can make selling your car with Apple Ford of York even easier:

Do Your Research

Doing your research before you sell your car can help you know what to expect when you receive an offer. Often, car value depreciates quickly, so it might surprise you when you learn what your car's worth. Looking for similar cars for sale in your area and using online tools can make it easy to input your car's information and condition and get a sense of how much it's worth. Of course, many factors affect the value of a car. We'll help you understand the reasoning behind our offer so you can rest easy knowing you're getting a fair deal.

Maintain Your Car Regularly

Regular maintenance can keep your car performing optimally. Our service center is a great resource that can help you stay up-to-date on service for your vehicle. Try to keep records of your car's service so buyers know it's well taken care of. Before selling, remove personal items and ensure your car is clean.

Consider Trading In Your Car

We're here to help you get into the car of your dreams. If you're considering a new vehicle, we can use the sale value of your car to put toward a new Ford. Our finance team is ready to help you get a great deal on a reliable vehicle right away.

Whether you're selling or trading, stop in to talk to us so we can answer any lingering questions you may have about the process and get you a great deal on your vehicle. We're looking forward to seeing you soon.
