FAQ'S

Selling Your Car to Sims Honda


1. Do you accept trade-ins? 


Yes. In fact, we'll buy yours 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 is good for 3 days. And you are under no obligation to buy a car from Sims Honda if you sell your car to us.  


3. Can I appraise my car online? 


Yes you can! You will still need to bring your vehicle to our dealership for an inspection for the final offer.


4. Will you explain how you appraised my car?  


If you have any questions about your minimum offer, you can ask to speak to a sales manager who will provide you with thorough information about the factors that determined your offer. 


5. Why is your written offer different than retail prices? 


Your online minimum offer might differ from the retail prices for several reasons. Due to the costs associated with reconditioning and applying guarantees and warranties on the cars we purchase for retails sale, we must purchase a car or truck at a lesser amount than we will sell it for. All the cars or trucks that we purchase for retail sale, regardless of the condition, must undergo a minimum of a 50 point inspection and up to 182 point inspection for a certified vehicle and be reconditioned to meet our high quality standards.


6. How do I redeem my Guaranteed Minimum offer? 


You must bring in your vehicle to Sims Honda for the verification and inspection process. This process will take 30 to 45 minutes. Once that is completed you will be able to redeem your offer. If you have a payoff due on the vehicle the sales consultant will explain what will happen with the process. 


7. What makes Sims Honda different from other dealership appraisals? 


The Guaranteed Minimum offer you receive from our Exclusive Buying Center powered by Kelley Blue Book and Autotrader.com is good for 3 days and is valid whether you buy a car from us or not. Most other traditional dealership appraisals are based on you trading in your car for a new one, and they won't buy your car outright. If you decide not to buy a car from us your Guaranteed Minimum Offer will stay the same.


8. Is the Guaranteed Minimum Offer Negotiable? 


Yes and No. The Guaranteed Minimal Offer is not negotiable because it is powered by Kelley Blue Book and Autotrader.com. However, our on-site buyers will determine if the vehicle is worth more and in some cases your vehicle will be worth more than your Guaranteed Minimum Offer. This is a case by case basis and will not apply to every vehicle. Make sure to ask our on-site buyers if your vehicle is worth more than your offer. 


9. Do I need an appointment for an appraisal? 


No appraisal appointment is necessary. Just visit Sims Honda or call us for details. You can also click the Guaranteed Minimum Offer to start the process online. Then you can come in for the verification and inspection process. The process takes 30-45 minutes. If you would like to set an appointment please contact us at 1-800-745-7467.


10. What if I owe more on my car than the Guaranteed Minimum 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 car from Sims Honda. If not, we'll calculate the difference between your pay-off and your offer and you can pay Sims Honda directly. Sims Honda accepts many forms of payments, please ask your consultant for details. The written offer is good for 3 days to give you time to settle the transaction. 


11. If I choose to sell Sims Honda my car, can I get it back? 


Unfortunately No, all vehicle sales to Sims Honda are final.
