Kelley Blue Book – A Great Tool for Car Value Estimation

Estimate Your Car Value Before Taking a Car Title Loan in San Jose CA!

Anyone looking for the value of a car, whether to estimate the value of your own car in order to apply for a car title loan or to look to buy a used car can go to the Kelley Blue Book – a great tool for car value estimation. 

The History of the Kelley Blue Book

In 1918, the Kelley Car Company was established by a young man named Les Kelley. In 1920, he compiled a list of vehicles he wanted to buy and the price he was prepared to pay for them. This list was distributed to banks and other dealers. The list became well-known and Kelley’s estimations became so trusted that other dealers began using the list themselves. The list began to be used by dealers to estimate the price of used cars.

The Launch of the Kelley Blue Book

In 1926, Les Kelley decided to expand his list of vehicle prices and he produced his first Blue Book. In his book, Kelley listed the factory prices and cash prices for thousands of different cars. The Kelley Blue Book was a trade book used by businesses to work out loan values and retail prices. The company continued to add innovations and in 1993, they produced a consumer edition. To this day, the Kelley Blue Book is used as a way to estimate used car prices around the country. The Kelley Blue Book has continued to grow and innovate and it is used throughout the United States by personal consumers and businesses in order to estimate the car value when taking a car title loan, when buying or selling a car or just for general knowledge of one’s assets. The kelley blue book estimation is well known and widely used and accepted by millions across the United States.
