John Clay Wolfe has bought over 50 THOUSAND cars since entering the business in 1996. JCW protects you from low ball dealership trade-in offers, he puts you RIGHT ON THE MONEY. Kelly Blue Book, NADA Guide, and Black Book publishes a value opinion of X-Y or Z. JCW wrote…"the book", and his opinion is an OFFER, backed with old fashioned US dollars.
Wolfe said, “our systems today decode the VIN's, so dealers text VIN #’s while trading cars among one another…..The non-dealer public is smarter than dealers think, they will quickly adapt to the same method…..If Suzy Q Smith sends me her VIN #, miles with a brief description, my system generates a HARD BUY FIGURE for her in seconds”.
GIVE ME THE VIN™ is JCW’s way of inviting the public into the licensed dealer world, and protecting them from low ball trade offers at the dealership. JCW's bid is honored at many franchise dealerships as an “IN & OUT”. When applicable, IN & OUT means JCW can buy your trade via the new car dealership, preserving your sales tax CREDIT.
If JCW doesn't bid your car, odds are you’re leaving a couple of grand on the table. John buys Trucks, diesel trucks, luxury high-lines, sports cars, normal cars, cheap cars, high cars, in between cars. From a $700 wore out civic, to a 20 thousand dollar 100k Suburban, to a 200 thousand dollar Rolls Royce Ghost. You get the picture, if it rolls and runs, JCW buys it. He is the Amazon.com of car buyers… He wants to buy your car.
A VIN # (VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER) is the 17 digit serial number that comes with your car. The VIN is found on dash below inspection sticker, and a sticker in the driver doorjamb. Those 17 digits contain things like factory build codes, year model, engine size, equipment options, and more. Ford Trucks, Dodge Trucks, and Nissan products do not decode fully, so know that comment box is important. Tell us options like COLOR, NAVIGATION, SUNROOF, LEATHER, KING RANCH, STICK SHIFT, LONG BED SINGLE WHEEL OR DUALLY. The VIN will get us close, but we still need you to fill in details. ONLY YOU know the problems with your car, so please be HONEST in your description. If it has hail, say HAIL DAMAGE. If it clunks when you put it in reverse, be upfront. Discussing problems on the front end, makes life easier than re-hashing price because of non-disclosure. We look forward to doing business with you.
