Once the trade is received here at our facility it will be valued within 24 hours of receipt and your credit will become live at that time. We will offer you an advance on day one of what we feel your trade would be worth using. We understand you may not agree with our value system and ask that you reach us ahead and fill out our form online so we can get your trade a pre-value. Once trades are dropped off and paperwork is received trades are final and products become the property of ACC and can not be taken back.
