Value Your Used Car with AutoTrader’s Trade-in Marketplace (TiM)

Important Please Read before you move forward

The AutoTrader TiM value is the guaranteed minimum value so your vehicle is likely worth more to us!  There is much more to a complete appraisal than just electronic data.  So, BMW Northwest’s Trade-in Offer will almost always be higher than the figure you’ll receive from the AutoTrader TiM.

Following these few instructions will help considerably:

1.  Enter Your VIN

Entering your VIN makes it easiest to compare your vehicle to others in the market for an accurate value.

2.  Be Complete

Although it takes a few extra minutes, completing the condition information will give you a more accurate number.  No used car is perfect and we understand that.  But since their system is entirely electronic if you input inaccurate information the value will be inaccurate.

3.  Don’t Rule Us Out

Look at the AutoTrader TiM value as a guaranteed minimum, NOT the last word.  We would like the opportunity to bid on your car regardless of the AutoTrader number.  Completing the contact information section in TiM not only locks in their offer, it also sends us the information so we can take a closer look.  If you’ve been accurate and complete in your self-appraisal, there’s more than a good chance we can make you an offer that will put a real smile on your face.
