Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to buy a vehicle to sell mine to you?
No, absolutely not! We’re interested in buying your vehicle, whether you purchase another one or not. Our buying process is straightforward and transparent, so you see for yourself that you’re being treated fairly. No strings attached, no games, come let our experts make you an offer!
Is it safe to visit the store during COVID?
We’ve taken thorough precautions to ensure our business is safe at this time, and we’ve followed all the recommendations from the government. We have a sanitization team working through the day to continually disinfect common surfaces, as well as protective screens in our offices, hand sanitizer available throughout the building, masks for employees and customers, spacing to facilitate social distancing, and more. The safety of our staff and customers is our top priority.
How does the appraisal process work?
Typically, you bring your vehicle into the store, and we’ll make you an offer within 30 minutes. We’ll do a thorough inspection of the vehicle, including a brief road test. We also perform a market analysis to understand what comparable vehicles are selling for in our market. We put all this information together and present it to you in a clear and straightforward way. You get a real offer for your vehicle, with an explanation of what goes into it.
Am I better off selling privately?
It depends on your vehicle, and what matters to you. Selling your vehicle privately may result in a higher sale price, but it’s not without its costs. Cleaning and repairing any issues with the vehicle help you get more for the vehicle, but effective marketing and online listing is also essential for a successful sale. Private sellers must also contend with the challenges of meeting potential buyers, organizing viewings and test-drives safely, as well as ensuring that you receive payment in a secure way. When it’s all done, the process can take months, require dozens of hours of work, and there’s no guarantee it will be successful.
When you sell your vehicle at Heninger Buying Centre, the process is a breeze. You only deal with respectful professionals, and you receive secure payment right away. Also, our business leverages automotive connections across Canada and the US, finding the best market for the resale of your vehicle. There’s a good reason Calgarians have been selling their vehicle to us for over 52 years, come find out for yourself!
What is Fair Market Value?
You’ve probably heard the old expression, “something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.” A new vehicle from the factory comes with a price tag, but figuring out the price of a used vehicle is a bit more difficult. Fair Market Value is the price of a used vehicle, based on the sale price of similar vehicles in the same market. We use sophisticated market analysis tools to track the market for thousands of vehicles sold across the province and country.
What’s a GST credit?
If you’re selling your vehicle and purchasing another one, then you don’t want to miss out on your GST credit! When you sell your vehicle to a GST-registered business, you can save the tax on your next purchase. Depending on the value of your vehicle, the credit can be worth thousands of dollars! Don’t lose out on your credit, come see us at Heninger Buying Centre.
