In order to find the Black Book value of a used car, head over to the Canadian Black Book website and enter the year and make of the vehicle, plus a current postal code. Then, users will be asked to choose the model of the vehicle before being taken to the screen that shows the average asking price and trade-in value of the car or truck.
When looking for the average asking price of a vehicle, users will need to select the trim of the vehicle. The next screen will show the average asking price of the vehicle in question. Those looking for the trade-in value will also need to choose a trim before being taken to a screen where they enter additions, deductions and the current mileage of the vehicle before being given the high and low trade-in values for the car.
Black Book also states that data is updated on a daily basis and can be delivered in a few different forms. The company has a mobile app, as well as an online service where car values can be obtained. Black Book also prints a hard copy version and distributes it on a weekly basis throughout the country.
