1.  Do you accept trade-ins?
Yes. In fact, we'll buy your car even if you don't buy one from us.

2.  Will you buy my car?
Once your car has been appraised, we'll give you a written offer that's good for seven days. And you are under no obligation to buy one of our cars if you sell us yours. If you decide to sell us your car, be sure to read our checklist of 
what to bring with you .

3.  Can I get my car appraised online
You must bring your car to a Hertz Car Sales to receive an appraisal. To determine your offer, one of our appraisers will need to inspect and test drive your car. When we're done, we'll give you a written offer good for seven days.

4.  What happens to the cars Hertz Car Sales buys?
Even though we'll buy most cars, not all will be sold to the public. Each car must pass our rigorous inspection before we'll consider it for our lot, and cars that don't meet our high-quality standards are sold at auctions to other dealers.

5.  Will you explain how you appraised my car?
If you have questions about the appraisal of your car, speak with the appraiser who developed the offer. Our appraisers can provide a thorough explanation about the factors that influenced your offer. Start now by contacting a Hertz Car Sales Consultant

6.  Will I get different offers at different Hertz Car Sales locations?
No. Your written offer will remain the same at any Hertz Car Sales Northwest location and is good for seven days. If you'd like to get your car re-appraised after the seven-day period, you can take it to any Hertz Car Sales Northwest location.

7.  Why is your written offer different from retail prices? 
Our appraisal offers vary from retail prices for several reasons. Due to the costs associated with reconditioning and applying guarantees and warranties on the cars we purchase for retail sale, we must purchase a car at a lesser amount than what we will sell it for. All cars that we purchase for retail sale, regardless of the condition, must undergo a thorough 128 point certification process or safety inspection and be reconditioned to meet our high-quality standards.

8.  How can I get an offer for my car?
You can have your car professionally appraised at any location. This process usually takes 30 to 40 minutes, and we'll give you a written offer that's good for seven days when we're done. For more information, find out how 
our appraisal process works.

9.  What makes Hertz Car Sales different from traditional dealer appraisals?
The Hertz Car Sales written offer is good for seven days, and is valid whether you buy a car from us or not. Most traditional dealerships appraisals are based on you trading in your car for a new vehicle, and they won't buy your car outright. And if you decide not to buy a car from us, your offer will stay the same.

10. Is your offer negotiable?
No. We make a written, no-haggle offer on every appraised car.

11. Will making modifications to my car affect the offer?
Supply and demand ultimately determines the desirability of any car or feature in the marketplace. A feature sometimes could improve the offer, and other times it could have a negative impact depending on the feature/modification. Sometimes, an aftermarket modification may void the factory warranty, thus reducing the offer. For more information, visit the Determining Your Offer

12. Will regular maintenance/repairs affect the offer?
Your car's overall physical and mechanical condition will have an impact on your appraisal offer. For more information about how we determine our offer, visit the 
Determining Your Offer section.

13. Do I need an appointment for an appraisal?
No appraisal appointment is necessary. Just visit Hertz Car Sales or call for details. Your appraisal takes as little as 30 minutes. If you would like to set up an appointment, contact Hertz Car Sales or consult a Hertz Car Sales Consultant

14. What if all titleholders cannot be present or one is deceased?
If all titleholders cannot be present, you must speak to a Hertz Car Sales Manager before selling a car to Hertz Car Sales.  In some cases, we may be able to accept a Power of Attorney, allowing someone else to sign on the absent titleholder's behalf. If a titleholder is deceased, you may have to transfer the title into your name before Hertz Car Sales can buy your car. This can usually be done by taking the title and supporting papers to the local titling office. However, because this process varies by state, ask a Hertz Car Sales Manager for more information.

15. Can you sell my leased car?
In most cases, you can sell your leased car in almost the same way as any other financed car. We'll appraise the car or truck, then contact the leasing company for a payoff quote and process any equity you might have. Please note that some leasing companies will not allow you to sell the car prior to the expiration of the lease. Also, be aware that your leased car might not be eligible for the trade-in tax savings described above. Check with your leasing company for complete details.

16. Do I have to sell my car at the same location that it was appraised?
You may sell your car at any Hertz Car Sales Northwest location. If you're within seven days of having the appraisal completed, a Sales Consultant at the location of your choice will be able to assist you. However, if your appraisal was completed more than seven days ago, Hertz Car Sales will re-appraise your car.

17. What if I owe more on my car than the amount of your appraisal offer?
If your pay-off amount is more than the offer for your car, the difference is called "negative equity." In some cases, the negative equity can be included in your financing when you buy a Hertz Car Sales vehicle. If not, we'll calculate the difference between your pay-off and our offer to you and you can pay Hertz Car Sales directly. Hertz Car Sales can accept cashiers or certified checks and certified funds. Hertz Car Sales also accepts cash and debit cards. If the amount you owe is less than $500, we will accept a personal check subject to third party approval. Our written offers are good for seven days, giving you time to get any necessary funds to settle your transaction.

18. If I choose to sell Hertz Car Sales my car, could I get it back?
No. All car sales to Hertz Car Sales are final.

19. What if I have a lien on my car?
We will need to contact your lien holder during business hours to get a 15-day payoff. To pay off the lien, we will need your lien holder's name and phone number, the name(s) on the account, and your lien holder's account number and social security number. If a previously paid-off lien is listed on the title, you'll need both the title and the lien release from the lien holder before we can purchase your car.

20. Can I sell a car on behalf of a company?
If you would like to sell a car on behalf of a company, please see a Business Office Associate for the requirements needed.
