You also have access to in-app chat, where you can instantly have any of your questions answered by our support team.
How do I submit my vehicle for appraisal to a dealer?
The GetaRealOffer app enables you to select dealers from your local area or any region of the country. You can shop your car to three dealers at once, but If you are not satisfied with the offers, choose three more dealers to send your appraisal request.
How do I monitor and chat with dealers?
You are never left wondering what’s going on because the app sends you notifications when the dealer has accepted your request, shared your request for valuation opinions, and presents a trade or purchase offer. You can use the in-app chat function to chat with the dealer during the entire process.
Will I have a bunch of dealers calling me?
We do not share your contact information until the dealer accepts your appraisal request. Once the dealer accepts your request, you and the dealer can access the in-app chat function to converse.
How do I receive trade or purchase offers from dealers?
Once you send a dealer your appraisal request, the dealer can share your vehicle record with their network to get additional valuation opinions. If a dealer has shared your request, which means they are shopping your vehicle to try and get you the highest value, then you will be able to see that activity in the app.
Once a dealer provides a trade or purchase offer, you will receive a notification informing you that a new offer has was presented.
What should I do after I accept an offer?
Once you receive an acceptable offer, you can schedule an in person appointment with the dealer via the app. You can always use the in-app chat function whenever you have follow-up questions.
If I sell to a dealer, how do I get paid?
Once you receive an offer that you are willing to accept, click schedule an appointment in the app to arrange a time to meet with the dealer. The dealer will facilitate payment once you and the dealer have looked at the vehicle in person.
When I meet with the dealer to complete my sale, will they try and negotiate the sale price that we agreed to?
When you create your vehicle record in the app, take the time to fully disclose all of the vehicle details and take good images, then the dealer will be less likely to find any reason to adjust the offer. However, the dealer will change their offer if you incorrectly disclose previous damage, mechanical condition, and vehicle features.
If I am not satisfied with the dealer with whom I have scheduled an appointment, am I obligated to follow through with the sale once I have met with the dealership?
No, if you are not satisfied with the dealer that you intended to sell or trade your car to, you can walk away as long as you have not signed a Bill of Sale.
