Car Manager is ready and waiting for you. But if you are in
the neighborhood and want to drop in, by all means. You can
either give us a call at 978.624.4500 and ask for our Used Car Manager,
or send over an email.
Why do you
want my car?
We cannot get enough quality
used vehicles for our pre-owned inventory - demand is greatly outpacing
our supply, even with all of the trade-ins we take
Can't I just sell my car
Absolutely, but we can save you a
few headaches if you are interested. When you sell your car
yourself you have to figure out the process of listing the car online
for sale, communicate and coordinate and negotiate with potential
buyers, and then figure out the contractual and monetary logistics of
the sale. The benefit of selling to us is that we have been
dealing with cars every day for the past 50+ years, so you can have
confidence in our reputation and our ability to make the process fast,
painless and easy.
What happens to
the cars we buy?
As long as the car passes
our standards for resale - which include a thorough safety check, a
multi-point inspection and a thorough reconditioning - we offer the car
for resale. For cars which end up not passing our criteria, we
send them to local automotive
Can't I just appraise my
car myself online?
We need to see and drive
your car. There are many quality tools and programs online to
estimate how much your current vehicle is worth, and you should use
them to get a feel for the range of what your car may be
worth. But ultimately there is nothing that takes the place of
us seeing and - more importantly - driving your vehicle. Once
we physically evaluate your car, we can give you our concrete opinion
on what it is worth to us.

We will do a
thorough inspection of your vehicle, taking note of the interior and
exterior condition, any aftermarket parts or modifications, options and
accessories and features, any damage, as well as the specific year,
make, model and trim level. We will take your car for a
drive. We check your vehicle's history and maintenance
records. And we compare your vehicle against current market
trends and conditions on a national, regional and local basis.
We also factor in what we expect to incur in terms of reconditioning,
repair and maintenance costs if we intend to add the vehicle to our
retail inventory. The entire process should take less than an

What should I bring with
If you are thinking about an immediate
sale, bring your car's title, registration and any payoff
information. All titleholders should be present and you'll
need your IDs. If you have maintenance records, bring them -
they exhibit the care you took to keep your car in good
condition. And please bring all of the keys and remotes and
owners manuals - these are like gold in the used car
What happens if I
disagree with you valuation of my car?
Simply walk away - this is a
no-obligation process. The most important thing to understand is that we
approach the appraisal process with the intent of reselling your
vehicle. We take into account market factors, as well as what
our repair, maintenance and reconditioning costs will be to bring a
vehicle up to our resale standards. Many times we can easily
work out a price for your car which both of us think is fair. But if what we come up with doesn't correlate with what you think, then
we thank you for the opportunity and we both move
