Since we got a new car for my wife as per the other thread, we ultimately had to let go of her Civic one way or another. For point of reference, this was a '14 Civic EX-L w/Nav with 76k miles that she bought new and babied since. We did not want to post the car for sale privately for the sake of not dealing with random people showing up on our doorstep and really just wanted something fast and convenient.
Carmax - we stopped in while running errands and 30 mins later, we got an $8k estimate.
Dealerships - average $6k to $8k but nothing in writing
KBB - did the process online and got a quote of about $8,300.
Shift's site was not working for a few days while we attempted so we gave up.
Vroom - did the process online and got a quote of about $8,500
Carvana - did the questions online, and got $10,300 This was done on 12/30 and took all of 5 mins to do.
We thought it was too good to be true so we accepted. Following that we were asked to upload a photo of the odometer, driver license, and front/back of the pink slip. Also on 12/30 when we accepted the claim, 5 mins to do.
The following day we were contacted via email that we can set-up an appointment to have the car picked up as the ownership verification was successful. We selected 1/2 at 3:30pm.
40 mins prior appointment, contacted by Carvana to confirm our appointment.
At 3:30, an Uber pulls up and drops off a Carvana rep. He introduces himself, loosely inspects and photographs the interior/exterior/odometer, starts the car, and confirms we are good. Paperwork was signed and he provided a pre-printed check for the full amount. 20 mins for the appointment and he drives off in our car and we have the check.
By far, the easiest transaction we could have ever asked for. YMMV obviously but we were shocked and pleasantly surprised as to how easy this all went down.
If you have any questions, let me know!
