Watch: Autozen estimates
Selling your vehicle with Autozen starts with a free estimate on our website autozen.com. Once you’ve entered your vehicle details, you’ll be shown industry market data that tells us what recent cars similar to yours have been sold and are selling for. Keep in mind, this is an estimate, not an offer since it doesn’t take into account certain packages and add-ons that your vehicle may have.
Autozen goes the extra mile to learn the true value of your vehicle by getting the exposure it needs to find the buyer who wants it the most. Booking a walkaround with an Autozen Expert is designed to help us build a profile for your vehicle.
The walkaround is a vital step that our buyers trust as if they saw the vehicle themselves. This results in a firm offer that will not change, unlike Instant Cash Offer (ICO) sites & Online Dealerships.
Once our Autozen Expert completes your walkaround and has taken photos of your car, at your desired location, we start showcasing your vehicle, in real-time, to hundreds of professional car buyers.
We understand that selling a vehicle can feel intimidating and overwhelming. Car buyers change their buying habits daily and car valuation data is always fluctuating. But you don’t have to worry about any of that! Our team will take care of everything and will be there to support you if you have any questions. We do the legwork to get your car sold, paid and gone, so you can go back to the more important things in life. Book your walkaround today and get one step closer to a great offer without any of the work!
How we estimate your car valuation
Autozen's initial valuation estimate is based on your car's basic details (year, make, model, and kilometres) as well as current demand for the model year in the market. We use our own sales data as well as trusted 3rd party data to come to an accurate price estimate.
Before showing your car to our buyers, we'll come to you to get the full details of your car, so we can update this estimate to factor in the car's condition and any optional features or packages it may have. This will ensure we get you the best offer possible.
Autozen is dedicated to getting you the best price for your car, without the hassles of traditional car-selling options.

I have a question about my estimate
Although your initial valuation is based on our own industry sales data plus trusted 3rd party data from Black Book, it's our service and business model that will get you a higher price than ICOs, dealerships and other car-selling methods.
Completing the in-person walkaround will allow us to showcase your car to our large network of buyers that trust our thorough process and will provide offers with the same confidence as if they were seeing your vehicle themselves. This investment by Autozen is what makes our service more valuable than an online instant cash offer or services that ask you to take your own pictures and upload them.
What is my car worth?
The value of your vehicle depends on several factors but starts with the general trends on your make, model etc. and the supply and demand for your vehicle in the market around us. The market drives the final value that our buyers look at when bidding for your car.
As you start selling your vehicle with Autozen we can provide a more accurate value through a better understanding of your vehicle via our walkaround process. Our valuation estimate tool that gives you an initial range should be used for estimation purposes only.
Things that could help add value and maximize your offer
- Features that are in high demand or rare, for example, navigation system, sunroof, leather seats, backup camera, Apple/android car play.
- Factory accessories such as original tires, two sets of keys etc.
- Tire treads that are not too worn - tire tread depth can impact the value of your car, in fact, some dealers will have to replace tires entirely in order to re-sell it. Be sure to let us know if you have an additional set of wheels/tires.
- Low relative KM for the age of the vehicle
- Consistent service records
- Less than $5k in accident history (CarFax)
- Having a “spec sheet” makes a big difference for German cars (BMW/Mercedes etc).
- Having something that shows your car’s exact add-ons/upgrades helps us identify the features that can really boost your car's value.
What won't add value to your asking price?
- Listing at dealership prices
- Mods and customizations
- Money spent on repairs
- Avoiding the disclosure of things
Comparing estimation tools
While a seamless digital transaction process for buying or selling a car is still evolving, calculating the resale value of one online has greatly progressed over the past few years--and much to the benefit of consumers. As more sales data becomes available and with new technologies improving the digital experience for consumers, selling a used car in the future will probably come down to a few clicks.
In this article, we’ll look at the most popular online calculators and what the future looks like beyond just getting value for your car.
Autozen vs the competition
When the time comes to sell your car, the 4 main ways to sell a vehicle include: ICOs, dealerships, and selling private or online auctions.
Each used car has unique details and backstory just as each seller has a unique situation, needs and goals. What works for one seller and their car may not be the best option for another.
On this page, we've listed the pros and cons of each selling platform to help you understand your car selling options.
Autozen falls under the online auction category. Online auctions happen in real-time just like a regular auction but it's all done online through a special bidding platform with a specific time limit. Registered buyers/bidders compete against each other to win your car. More buyers drive the final offer price even higher.
