KBB is probably the most well known competitive option by consumers, as it has been in-market for about a decade now. Accu-Trade’s founder, Bob Hollenshead, actually partnered directly with Cox Media to build this initial instant cash offering.
Accu-Trade is Bob’s next evolution of KBB ICO, focused on providing higher quality leads than its predecessor through a more powerful and detailed appraisal engine — taking into account all 17-digits of the VIN and a full ODB-II diagnostic scan, which can save thousands per copy identifying costly trouble codes.
KBB also does not provide the consumer any valuation until they complete the full form process, and then sends the lead to multiple dealers. Accu-Trade provides a dynamically updating value for each input to keep the consumer engaged and provide transparency on the process, on their way to transacting with your team (and only your team).
And while KBB does allow you to somewhat tailor the types of sell leads you get, they limit you to 10 unique “rules” for custom bid approaches. Accu-Trade offers the capability for you to set-up unlimited rules — down to the color and option level — ensuring that you can truly tailor an acquisition strategy for the inventory you want to sell.
With CarOffer’s vehicle appraisal capabilities and condition reporting, dealers have an idea of what they are buying, but they are only shown an incomplete set of historical data on the specific vehicles being submitted for valuation.
Alternatively, Accu-Trade shows dealers exactly what they are buying based on:
Unlike other appraisal solutions, Accu-Trade provides all the context necessary to make profitable decisions around both the acquisition and exit strategy for each vehicle.
A detailed breakdown of features offered by provider is available, and as you’ll see no other offering on the market can match-up with what the full Accu-Trade Connections package has to offer. There are your standard trade-in widgets, and then there is the connected Accu-Trade platform. There’s really no comparison.
