    Used Car Dealerships

    You can always take your truck to a used car dealership and tell them that you are interested in selling. They will appraise it as per their own formula and will give you an offer price right there and then. You can negotiate in most cases and the price they are going to offer you is going to be a fair bit less than the actual value. Your earlier exercises along with the appraisal from the dealership will clarify the picture further and you will have a price in between those in the ads and what you are being offered by the dealership.
