How We Determine Your Price

Regardless of whether you're looking at purchasing a new or used vehicle at SMP, we want your trade! We sell all makes and models and are always looking for good quality used vehicles. Even if Stratford Motor Products does not have the car you're looking for and is unable to find a suitable replacement for you, we are still interested in purchasing your vehicle.


Sure other dealers and online estimators, like Canadian Black Book, can supply you with used car values but our experienced appraisers take into consideration your car's specific condition. So while online estimates may only provide you with a ball park figure of your vehicle's value, SMP will actually buy your car after it's appraised.


To get an offer for your car, simply bring it to Stratford Motor Products.

No appointment is necessary.

Your vehicle will be thoroughly examined. Our detailed physical inspection process takes approximately 30 minutes. Since every car is different our appraisers consistently focus on the following:

  • Year, Make, Model and kilometers
  • Interior and exterior condition
  • Aftermarket modifications
  • Structural Damage
  • Test drive for mechanical issues
  • Your car's History Report for any accidents, flood or frame damage


Using multiple sources of data, our appraisers also check general factors that affect any car of similar make and model. Your vehicle is compared against current and accurate market conditions, such as regional sales trends and auction data. Once our appraisers analyze the information we will give you a free written offer good for seven days.

Why sell your vehicle to SMP?

  • We back every appraisal with an offer the same day it's appraised. Online estimators only provide used car values with no offer to purchase.
  • SMP's appraisers take the time to physically examine your vehicle's unique attributes to establish a value and an offer. Online estimators simply use market data to provide an estimate without making you an offer for your car.
  • SMP will buy your car the same day it's appraised. Selling it yourself to private party could take weeks, have additional costs plus you could be dealing with untrustworthy people.
  • SMP will buy your car even if you don't buy one of ours.
  • Transparency. You can walk with and speak with our appraisers while your car is being inspected.
