"Easy, straightforward way to sell a vehicle! I worked with Dave and couldn't have asked for more. He was quick to respond, very helpful in helping us understand the process and sold my car in the first weekend's auction for exactly what we were hoping for. Couldn't be happier and will definitely be in touch with Dave again!"
"I'm not a salesman and find the situation of trying to sell my own car to be awkward and uncertain. A family member suggested using ADESA in Richmond. My vehicle sold first run for more than I would have got for trade in! The whole process was easy and quick. Took it in Wednesday, sold Saturday. The fees were reasonable and the staff very helpful. I'd use them again, thanks Nakul Sharma!"
"When I first heard about ADESA I was very skeptical, as the program sounded too good to be true. I was fortunate enough to work with Dave Moodoo who went above and beyond to answer all of my questions, even on the weekend. I brought the vehicle out for an appraisal/inspection and was very impressed by the facilities. Dave worked hard to ensure that the vehicle went for top dollar and I was impressed at just how easy it was to sell my vehicle. In the future, I will head straight to Dave at ADESA Calgary."

Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely not, but we will still run the offer by you. You ultimately have the final say for any offers that are under your minimum sale price. However, if the offer hits or exceeds your minimum sale price, we will accept the offer on your behalf.
The fees depend on how much your vehicle ends up selling for. Here are some examples:
- Sale price of $5000 = Fee of $445
- Sale price of $10,000 = Fee of $570
- Sale price of $15,000 = Fee of $695
- Sale price of $20,000 = Fee of $745
In the off-chance that your vehicle does not sell after 3 live auctions, we would only charge a fee of $149. This includes the $35 vehicle history report that we would have to perform. We will supply you with a copy of the report.
- A transfer of ownership (document varies depending on province)
- A photocopy of your driver’s license
- Also note that your vehicle will also need to be free and clear of any liens (any debt owing on the vehicle).
Your vehicle will run in 3 different live auctions. Additionally, it will be posted up on our daily online auction. This way, we know we’ve hit all of our potential buyers.
That’s okay! Around 90 per cent of the vehicles we sell are not safety certified. All we need to do is declare any major problems with the vehicle.
We strongly advise keeping the insurance on your vehicle or at least having storage Insurance to make sure you’re covered for any acts of nature. Better safe than sorry.
Transporting Your Vehicle To ADESA
You can either drop it off yourself during our office hours, or for a small fee, we can pick it up for you — even if it’s not in running condition. Watch our video for more details.
