Determining Your Offer

and understand the criteria around it


Determining Your Offer

One of the biggest hindrances faced when buying a new vehicle from a car dealership in Pretoria is selling your old one. At Citton Cars, we make this transition as easy and transparent as possible for all prospective clients.


What we do

When appraising your vehicle, we do not do a general thumb suck and hope for the best. There is a checklist we go through so that we can give you the best deal possible.

The process is quick and easy, taking about thirty minutes of your time, while each appraisal and written offer on a vehicle is good for seven days. This gives you the time to think about our offer and whether you still want to sell you vehicle.

When determining our offer, we look at a number of criteria:

01 Current market conditions

Prices fluctuate all the time, depending on national sales trends, the current exchange rate, etc. It is, however, a good indicator of whether we are giving you a fair offer on your vehicle.

02 The inspection

We give your car a thorough inspection, both on the inside and the outside. Although small imperfections would not have much of an impact on the offer we give you, we do need to take major defects into consideration, such as dents or other damage.

03 Your vehicle’s history

Your car’s logbook tells us a lot about your car. It gives us an idea of its past and the care taken of it. It is an important document when determining an offer.

04 The test drive

We will, of course, take your car for a test drive to see whether everything is in working order. This includes such things as your car’s flicker and other signaling lights as well as the breaks, to mention but a few. If repairs are needed, we would need to take this into consideration and adjust our offer accordingly.
