Determine Your Price Range

With the current volatility in used vehicle prices, it’s now more important than ever to ensure that you’re getting a fair market price for your prospective purchase. Determine a price range that you’re comfortable with and be sure to stick with it. When you have your budget in mind, utilize an online appraisal software such as AutoTrader or Canadian Black Book to provide you an estimated price of the vehicle you want to buy. If you have a model you’d like to trade in with us, use our Trade-In-Appraisal to see how much you could earn towards a new pre-owned model.

At Mac Lang Orillia, we’ll provide all the requisite paperwork and mechanical history for the vehicle, so you can have a clear picture of the model history and condition of the vehicle you’re looking to buy.
