The Kelley Blue Book® Instant Cash Offer is a real offer for a specific amount to purchase a consumer's car or apply the amount toward another car. The Offer is valid for 7 days and can be immediately redeemed during business hours at Archibald's Inc., pending inspection. It is based on specific elements of the consumer's car, like installed options, specific condition (such as dents and mechanical issues) and local market demand.

Yes, most of us do have a loan on our car. Archibald's Inc. will process the necessary paperwork for you to pay off your vehicle and pay any related fees. Any remaining equity is yours to cash in. If your car is financed, bring your lienholder information. If your car is leased, check with your leasing company to find out what paperwork they require.
When you present your Instant Cash Offer to Archibald's, the dedicated representitive will conduct a visual inspection of the interior and exterior, then may test drive the vehicle to confirm its mechanical condition. If the inspection report doesn't match your online assessment of your car's condition, the Offer may be raised or lowered based on the dealer's inspection report.
