4.3 Stars
We've purchased thousands of cars from customers across the Albany, Saratoga and Schenectady area in upstate New York and received a lot of great feedback. See what’s behind our 4.3 star average rating.
I was looking to sell my 2017 Kia Optima. I called around to other companies who are interested in purchasing vehicles. I quickly found out most were too busy to answer any questions without seeing the car. I could understand this but I was just looking for a price range. I did my homework and had an idea what it was worth and what was reasonable to a dealer to purchase for them to make a living too!!! I contacted Fogg’s and had a great experience. They were polite, knowledgeable informative. We scheduled an appointment and found the whole process to go very smooth. I was happy with the amount I was offered. I would highly recommend Fogg’s!!!!

First time ever buying a car of a lot, Foggs was helpful and worked with me to get the car I wanted. I was never up sold or tempted into anything I specifically didn't want, you couldn't ask for better people.

Highly recommend. I had a great sales associate Jake everything went really smooth and straight to the point. Everything was very simple. Went for a trade in and drove off the lot with a new car the same day.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about selling or trading your car? We’ve got you covered.
How much is my vehicle worth?

We can give you an offer in under 15 minutes! We include you in the valuation process so you know exactly how we arrive at our offer based on your specific vehicle, it's mileage and condition, and the market.

How do I sell or trade in my car?

After a quick 15 minute appraisal of your vehicle, we will walk you through exactly how we value your car and give you an offer! If you decide to sell outright we can cut you a check right away and if you decide you would like to trade in for a new vehicle we can help with that too.

What paperwork do I need to sell my car or to trade it in?

You will need a photo of the car's title and your drivers license if you own the vehicle. If you are still paying on it or you are leasing we can help you get any additional documents you may need.

What kind of inspection do you do on my car?

We look at all of your vehicle's details including the options your vehicle has, like Bluetooth or a backup camera, the mileage, and the condition of the vehicle as well as any repairs that may be needed.

Are there any restrictions on the types of cars you accept for trade-ins?

We accept almost anything! When you schedule an appointment we will get your vehicle details to ensure it's something we accept.

What factors do you consider when appraising a vehicle?

We look at the year, make and model, color, trim level, milage and overall condition of your vehicle. Market conditions are also an important factor in determining how much your car is worth. We are 100% transparent and will show you what your car is selling for in the area both at auction and at dealerships.

Can I sell my car if I still owe on it?

Yes! You can trade in or sell your car if it is financed and you are still making payments on it. We work directly with your bank to complete the vehicle pay off. We recommend booking an appointment before 3pm if you still owe on your vehicle to ensure that your bank is open so we can complete the necessary paperwork with them.

What do I do with my license plates if I sell my vehicle?

We will take your plates off for you. Then you will need to take them to the DMV to turn them in. Be sure to keep the receipt that the DMV gives you as you will likely need to provide it to your insurance company as proof that you turned in your plates. 

Where can I cash my check if I sell my car?

The bank we work with is Ballston Spa National Bank which is located less than a mile down the road from us. You are welcome to cash your check there, or with whichever bank you typically use.
