How Instant Cash Offer works
Step 1: Consumers visit the Instant Cash Offer tool online
Car owners fill out a detailed description of the vehicle they’d like to sell or trade on Autotrader, KBB.com or your dealership website. Your dealership staff can also guide them through this process in your showroom.
Step 2: Instant Cash Offer tool generates the offer
The car owner receives an Instant Cash Offer to be used for trade-in or outright sale. The offer is valid for seven days.
Step 3: The customer brings you the offer
Once you have confirmed the vehicle information, the customer can apply the offer toward another vehicle or sell the vehicle outright.
Step 4: You decide what to do with the vehicle
After you’ve acquired the vehicle, you have seven days to decide whether to resell it on your lot or sell it to Cox Automotive for the full offer amount. You choose!
