This is no trade-in tool. Now part of CARS, Accu-Trade is a connected ecosystem of pure audience advertising, instant consumer experiences, and unprecedented appraisal technology to continually drive more highly profitable vehicles through your business.
Our technology gives consumers instant and transparent cash offers for their exact VINs on your website. Combined with your local customer service to conveniently complete the transaction, it’s a selling experience no one can beat.
All the vehicles you acquire will flow into Accu-Trade, the most powerful appraisal platform in our space. Created by Robert Hollenshead — the largest volume dealer, buyer, and seller of vehicles in North America — Accu-Trade is expertly engineered to enable dealer profitability.
Accu-Trade is built on a mountain of data, with all the guidebooks, vehicle history reports, market pricing, and control you need to nail the perfect price and turn each VIN profitably.
Accu-Trade is the only appraisal solution with an on-board diagnostics (OBD) scanner, which automatically syncs detailed mechanical disclosures from the customer’s vehicle right into your appraisal. These key deductions you would have overpaid for are then included in indisputably transparent reporting to the customer.
As part of CARS, Accu-Trade has exclusive access to the Cars.com marketplace, enabling you to turn our massive consumer audience into your new most valuable stream of inventory (and customers).
