Car appraiser tools can be accessed on a computer, smartphone or tablet. If the truck is an older model, the appraiser tool may not be able to determine the value of the vehicle, since the model may not be in the database. Live help teams may be available to chat with individuals who need help while using appraiser tools.

The overall value of a truck can also be determined by its type of drive and transmission type. If you have the truck's original window sticker, all of the necessary information can be found there. Otherwise, print out an options page from a car appraiser website, or enter the information on a tablet or smartphone.

The condition of the truck also determines its overall value. The terms for a truck's condition can include "outstanding," "clean," "average," "damaged" or "rough." The outstanding condition is usually reserved for trucks that have hardly been driven and are in pristine condition. Trucks involved in accidents might only be in clean condition if they were repaired according to the manufacturer's standards and with factory parts.
