What the heck is Dart?!
Well, first off, it's the very BEST way to Trade or Sell your vehicle — so jot that down. But, this ain't your grandma's trade-in tool. Nope!
Our team is made up of automotive nerds passionate about providing consumers with a better option. That's why Dart puts the power in your hands by giving you complete control over what
best to do with your sweet, sweet ride! It's our way of trusting that you know what your best paths are when it comes to your vehicle.
Plus, the whole process takes only moments!
First, you'll enter your information. In literal milliseconds, Dart will provide an instant and transparent cash offer for any vehicle you want to sell.
PLUS, we'll connect you with the closest dealerships to your location in case you're simply interested in trading your vehicle for a nicer, newer one.
Pretty neat, right? We think so.
How does this dang thing work?!
When you pull up dartoffer.com, you can choose between two easy information options. Do you have the Vehicle Identification Number
for your automobile?
Perfect! Use the VIN
Option and enter it in along with the Current Mileage
Don't have it handy? You can simply switch to enter your Year
, and Model
. You'll then be prompted to select the Series
or Trim, Style
, and Current Mileage
Next, we direct you to select the vehicle Condition
. We provide five options:
This tier describes units in "above-average" condition, i.e., ones without mechanical or cosmetic service needs.
They're sittin' pretty. She's also roadworthy without needing new tires, repairs, or significant — or even minor — glow-ups.
The inside counts too! Clean interiors undamaged by tobacco smoke hotboxing, or excessive wear and tear.
About what you can expect for something described as "decent."
Average is the operative word here. These are typically units with the usual mileage for their lifespan and location, including standard wear and tear.
This condition reflects units that require maintenance or service beyond the "Decent" state and
includes mechanical repair surpassing standard interior or cosmetic wear and tear. A good ole fashioned fixer-upper, if you will.
- Defective (Lemon)
This condition reflects units that the manufacturer has previously acquired due to a warranty defect that impaired use or safety.
However, unlike actual lemons, the only lemonade you can usually make with these is probably already in the radiator.
Whoo, baby! This condition reflects units that have been damaged and/or deemed a total loss by an insurance company that paid a claim on them and are only suitable for salvage.
It might make a great starter vehicle for your least favorite child.
After that, your estimated purchase price will instantly populate along with the details you provided (in case you fat-fingered the info).
After that, your last step is to decide whether you want to Trade
There are, of course, benefits to both. Typically, though, you'll be offered more for a trade-in than you would for cash outright, though the final decision is always yours.
Remember that any offer you receive is not iron-clad and that vehicle values can be fluid depending on innumerable factors.
Dart calculates this amount using the Black Book® standards for vehicle value processing, and it is constantly updating.
We would love
to get our hands on your beautiful vehicle or take it in on trade toward a replacement.
We always do our best to crunch the numbers to calculate the correct at-the-moment value. The final offer might wind up differently, but just know that we did our homework to make this work for everyone involved.
Where can I trade in my vehicle?!
We're not just going to send you off into the world without a safety net! Each location we work with is part of a network of carefully vetted dealerships within Northeastern Iowa
, and it covers a pretty wide area!
Not in that region? No worries
We'll still assist you! Many of these locations are set up to work with folks in a long-distance capacity. So that should take some of the hot-collared stress out of the whole thing!
