How can I find out how much is the real actual value of my car?

Other than supercarros comparing?

Where can I get an estimate in Santo Domingo?

Not sure. I am trying to get an estimate when I start shopping for a new one I want to use it as part of payment.

Of course I would like to know beforehand how much it is worth still more or less so I won't get cheated too much :D

Just start shopping and offer your car for trade.

I expect evry dealer will value it differently...US/Can does.

Depends on which dealer needs to fatten the used inventory.

There are no shortcuts...
even in NoAmerica, the valuations just give you a guideline until the dealer has the final say

I sold a car last year. I used Supercaros to get a feeling. Then I looked it up in the Blue Book. Took the Blue Book and adjusted to fit. I then added 20%. Lower then Supercaros but 20% higher then Blue Book. Sold via my mechanic in 2 weeks and his fee is off the buyer and not me. (I think?) I did not pay for any paperwork or anything. Just "sign here". Got my price less U.S. 500 so I was very happy. Cash deal with a stack of U.S. 100. bills.

I make a rough guess this way. Take book value of a car in the US and add 40%. The Gorgon would have an idea .

But then he is not free.

He does charge yet I don't see any paid for advertising for his services.
That is if you are using him to purchase a car. I was only stating that he could provide an estimate of the worth of a car.
I have no idea if he charges anything for that, nor what he charges to help purchase a car.

his services are more of a 'voluntary' nature , as I understand it but let him confirm that

Not a fixed fee schedule

I concur with William.....when I dealt with him ...he was very easy to deal with ....but alas some people never want to pay for anything and expect everyone but themselves to do things for free

You said you have insurance through Banreservas....so do I.....call them....they base their insurance premiums on the value of the vehicle....or the value insured.

How they arrive at it I do not know. They are historically below what you will find for prices on Supercarros.....but not by much.

The car was initially insured with 1.6 Million DOP.

Since I got the loan I pay the same monthly fee for insurance. No deduction because it is becoming less worth over time... Left to pay for the car loan is like 700 K.

Yes, but look on your policy. Mine has a valuation, or alternatively the max they would pay. It changes each year at renewal.

This site has a calculator.

Depending on mileage (not sure how many I will have next year so I calculated 45000 miles) I am getting a trade in value of 16,000 to 17,000 USD. More than I thought.
That is a US price.

A better calculator and the one banks use here (US) can be found at www.NADA.com

But it does little to provide more than a base price in the US.

When you are ready to trade/sell send me a PM with your specs and I will get you a DR value via my clients.

Thank you! Will do that. :)

NADA gives me roughly the same estimates 16000 - 17000.

I have the "Full" version. Which was cash 37,000 something US compared to 22,000 for the basic one in 2014.

The basic ones are on suppercarrros at sales prices from 825,000 to 960,000 DOP
