Our Vehicle Evaluation Process

COME SEE US

Simply bring your vehicle to First Texas Pre-Owned Superstore.

EVALUATION

You’ll meet one of our team members who will spend approximately 30 minutes evaluating your vehicle.

OFFER

After the evaluation, we will provide you with a written offer.

VALIDITY

The written offer is then valid for 7 days or 300 miles, whichever comes first.

If you want a fast, fair, friendly experience, come and sell your car at First Texas Pre-Owned Superstore. We’re locally owned & operated, and we know that everyone’s time is precious.

We believe whole heartedly in being upfront about how our evaluation process works, so whether or not you trade in your vehicle or sell it to us, our offer to purchase remains the same.

Most importantly, if you do decide to sell us your car, you may receive a check the SAME day–so long as there’s a clear title (between 9AM – 3PM, Monday – Friday).

5 Steps
 of our Vehicle Evaluation

Together, we'll walk around and visually look at your vehicle for scratches, dings, dents, etc.

Next, we'll test drive your vehicle to ensure that it is mechanically sound. During this step, we both invite and encourage you to come along for the ride to answer any questions that our evaluator may have.

Then we'll place your vehicle on a lift to be assessed by our ASE Certified Technicians.

Afterwards, we examine the current market, check for similar vehicles within the market, and analyze the NADA report.

NADA is what banks use to get an idea of what a vehicle is worth since about 70% of consumers finance their cars. To learn more about NADA, click here.

Finally, after taking into consideration all of the previous steps, we provide an offer to purchase your vehicle that's valid for 7 days or 300 miles–whichever comes first. When you decide to sell your vehicle to us, we can write you a check (if there's positive equity or a clear title) or put it towards a new car purchase for tax savings!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to schedule an appointment or can I walk right in?

An appointment is highly recommended so that we can provide you with the best service possible.

What is the vehicle evaluation process?

The evaluation process includes a visual inspection, a short test drive, a mechanical inspection, assessment of the market analysis, and then an offer to purchase. Click here to learn more.

Do you buy any vehicle?

We’re looking for vehicles that are 2005 and newer, with less than 200,000 miles, not salvaged, no flood damage, and are drivable (no tow-ins).

Will you still buy my vehicle even if there are modifications/aftermarket accessories installed?

It depends on what kind of accessories and what type of vehicle they’re on.

Will you buy my vehicle that I’m currently leasing?

Yes, we do buy leases. Please note that this is not the same as turning in a lease.

Am I obligated to buy a car from you?

Not at all! We will buy your car whether or not you buy from us. Many traditional dealerships require you to do this, which is not what we do. We always strive to make the process fast, fair, and friendly. View Inventory >

Do you do off site vehicle evaluations?

We do not make house calls. We do not make house calls.

What do I need to bring to sell my vehicle?

To have a successful evaluation, we need you to bring a few things. Click here to see what to bring along.

What is positive and negative equity?

If the value of your vehicle is worth more than what you owe, that’s positive equity. If the value is less than what you owe, that’s negative equity.

How do I get paid?

If you decide to sell us your vehicle and there is a…

CLEAR TITLE: We will write you a check if you come in before 3PM during the weekday; after 3PM we will write you one the next business day.

LIEN (with positive equity): We submit the paperwork to your bank or lien holder to process. Once that’s done, the bank will send us your vehicle’s title and we write you a check.

Depending on how quick your bank is, typically it takes 4-6 weeks. We highly recommend being proactive by calling your bank and letting them know you’re selling your vehicle to us.

What if I have a lien on my vehicle (it is financed through a bank)?

If you decide to sell us your vehicle that currently has a lien, you have 3 options…

  1. if there’s negative equity, you give us the difference to pay it off
  2. if your vehicle has positive equity, we can give it to you in the form of a check
  3. or even better, if your vehicle has positive equity, you may use it towards a new car purchase for tax savings!

If you might be in the market for a new Honda or a quality used car, check out our inventory to fall in love again.

What if I do not have the title to my vehicle?

We can’t buy any vehicle without a title. Please contact your local titling office on how to obtain one.

What if the vehicle I want to sell is not in my name?

For legality purposes, only the person(s) on the title or lien has the right to sell the vehicle. For questions about special circumstances, please give us a call.
