How Does the KBB Form Work?

With the Kelley Blue Book form, you can get a quick estimate for your old car in one of three methods: using your 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN), your license plate number or the make/model of your vehicle. The VIN method is usually the fastest as it will result in an offer tailored to your exact vehicle, without you having to take the extra steps of filling in the trim/extra features of the car.

What is the VIN and How Can I Find it?

The 17-digit VIN can be found on the registration of your vehicle or on its title. You may also find it in the original bill of sale and any relevant insurance documentation.

How is the KBB Offer Calculated?

Your KBB instant cash offer is compiled from a number of different data sources, including the current supply/demand of your particular car, historical trends on its value, its current condition, regional price differences, and any influences from the local market, including competitor sales data, auction prices, and private sales prices. Generally, the newer, more unique, and popular your old car is, the more you can expect to get back from it.

How Long is this Offer Good for?

Your Kelley Blue Book instant trade-in offer is good for up to seven days.

Will my Vehicle Be Appraised in-Person?

Yes, when you arrive for a test drive, we will have an expert appraiser on-site to evaluate your vehicle's current condition. As long as there are no discrepancies between your vehicle's history and its condition, the appraisal process should not take very long.

Am I Obligated to Trade-In my Car?

No, drivers from Bennington, VT to Albany, NY can simply sell us their vehicle for ash and take their business elsewhere. Our sales team will issue you a check after appraising your vehicle on-site, which you can choose to take with you, if you are not in the market for a new Ford or used car.

If I Decide to Trade-In my Car Can I Buy a New One Online?

Yes! Using our handy online retail tool, drivers can start their deal online from the comfort of their home in Pittsfield, MA. You can apply your KBB cash offer to your existing offer to see how much you can save. Then, you can take all the other major steps towards auto financing and leasing, including applying for credit and setting your auto loan conditions.

Say I Want to Lease a New Car, Can my Trade be Applied to That as Well?

You can apply your trade-in deal towards a lease agreement if you choose. However, trade is not generally required for leasing, as your monthly payments tend to be much lower in these agreements. Many of our new Ford lease deals may even waive the down payment portion entirely, making short-term costs even easier.
