    I seem to recall them saying 48 hours, but so far it’s been six days and still no offer. Just “In Progress”...

    Huh, yeah, I got my confirmation and trade-in-value estimate within 24 hours of finishing out the survey from the SMS link.

    Maybe I need to give them a call...

    How was the value? KBB range I assume?

    I've got mine within hours of providing the pictures. It matched KBB closely. I was trading in another brand though (not Tesla).

    I am in my account and just got a vin and notice from my contact but I do not see any way to get to the survey. Is there something that pops up a link next to the "trade in pending" line?

    I got a low quote, but I was able to supply them a carmax quote which was matched for about 2k higher.

    My problem is I cannot put my trade in data in. Just wondering where do you put the pictures and rest of the data. I see no link, all there is is the "pending" line

    Your ISA should release that for you.

    Took 6 days before I was given an offer after pic upload. As you can see, it varies highly.

    Yeah. It was "good enough" that I wasn't going to go through the trouble of selling myself. Especially with the PITA that is dealing with plate transfer not in one transaction in NC.

    The process took a few days for me. It was quick once the ISA did a few things on her side.

    It was all a waste of time since I listed my car on Craigslist (for 500-1000 less than what should be true private market value) and got about 3.3x Tesla’s original trade in value and 2.5x the CarMax matched trade in value. My 3 should have been here by now (a different story) so I am a bit stuck.

    When I did it last month I got my quote about 90 minutes after uploading the photos on a weekday afternoon.
