Do you fully understand the consumer legislation that applies to selling your car to another person? Even though the extra money you could get out of it is appealing, what happens later could create headaches and make you regret your decision. HGregoire knows its business, and it can buy your car with no strings attached at a very attractive price. And, as you know, you don’t have to buy another vehicle from us.
If you sell your car to HGregoire, you will not have to provide any type of guarantee whatsoever. Just come to one of superstores when the time is right, seven days a week, and meet with one of our appraisers. It will only take us a few minutes to inspect your car. It will be appraised while you are there. No hidden surprises.
Fair deals make for good business. Your car’s price will be established according to its value on the resale market. All of these factors need to be weighed in establishing its final value. Don’t let yourself be swayed by a misleading appraisal at a dealer who wants to sell you another car. The difference will be added to the price of the new vehicle.
Once your vehicle is appraised, our representative will ask you to sign two important documents. The first document certifies the odometer reading, to prevent any ambiguity for you and the eventual buyer. The second document certifies that your car has never been in a collision. The value of a car that has been repaired following a major accident is not worth as much, and the reseller must tell the new owner about it. Once all of these documents have been filled out, HGregoire will confirm the price.
We do a road test to assess the vehicle’s mechanical condition. We inspect your car’s interior and exterior to establish its condition in relation to its age. Excessive wear can lower the estimate of your car value. We check the vehicle’s age and mileage. Excess mileage can reduce the value of your car. Normally, a vehicle travels 24,000 to 27,000 km per year. We inspect the paint, repairs to the body, scratches and bumps. Structural damage can reduce the value of your car as it can point to a major accident that could affect how the vehicle handles. At HGregoire, we do not sell collision-damaged vehicles.
