Kelley Blue Book, the leading provider of new car and used car information, now offers dealers and other industry service companies a free, no-obligation, 30-day trial of its newest valuation product Quick Values, www.quickvalues.com.  Quick Values is a fast and simple solution delivering comprehensive new- and used-car values to banks, insurance companies, governmental agencies and auto dealers, all in an easy-to-use, self-service model.

Kelley Blue Book is offering this free 30-day trial to new industry users any time between May 23 and July 23, 2011, to showcase the company’s accomplishments in making Kelley Blue Book® Values among the most trusted and relied upon in the industry.  To take advantage of this free offer, log on to www.quickvalues.com and register with your email address to access the most timely automotive information available today.  No credit card information is required to sign-up and there is no obligation to purchase anything at the end of the trial.  This service allows for an unlimited number of users per established account, giving both small and large organizations the flexibility to quickly access Kelley Blue Book Values.

“We are so confident in our values, we want to put them in the hands of the industry at no-cost for 30 days so that they can see for themselves,” said Paul Johnson, president and CEO, Kelley Blue Book.

With Quick Values, users receive instant access to the full range of trusted Kelley Blue Book new- and used-car values, including industry-relevant information not available on kbb.com, such as Wholesale Lending Value and Auction Value, all updated weekly.  Additionally, for used cars, Quick Values provides Kelley Blue Book® Certified Pre-Owned, Trade-In and Suggested Retail Values, and for new cars, Quick Values offers Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), Invoice and Fair Purchase Price (which reports what others typically are paying for new cars this week).  Quantitative adjustments are made for condition, mileage and optional equipment.

Users can identify a vehicle by its Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or year, make and model to obtain relevant, regionalized values for their business.  Each valuation report includes every Kelley Blue Book Value available in Quick Values, including Auction Value.  The valuation reports are printable and allow users to type in reference numbers or detailed notes for inclusion in the pricing report.

“We have made significant strides in valuation methodology over the last two years, putting Kelley Blue Book Values closer to real market conditions than ever before.  Our analytic capabilities provide dealers, banks, finance and insurance companies with unrivaled insights into the future of the automotive marketplace, continuing Kelley Blue Book’s preeminence in vehicle pricing and values,” said Johnson.  “With our game-changing enhancements in data collection, advanced statistical modeling and personnel, businesses can manage an entire portfolio of inventory more effectively and profitably than ever before with tools like Quick Values.”
