Galves Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How often are your books updated?
We publish an updated guidebook every week. The “American & Foreign Used Cars Edition” and the “Light Duty Trucks Edition” are published on an alternating, bi-weekly basis so every week one of these two books is updated. Our third book, the “Older Used Cars & Trucks Edition,” is updated monthly.
Q: How often is the online information updated?
Weekly. The information at galves.com is updated every Friday evening at approximately 11:30 pm (eastern)
Q: Are the values in the printed books the same as the online information?
Yes. The values in the printed editions are identical to the online information.
Note: The only discrepancy that may occur between our website and printed guides is on vehicles that have EXTREMELY high or low mileage (20,000 miles more or less than our declared “base mileage”). Because we can do a better job adjusting for mileage on the website, we feel our online values are usually more accurate on these vehicles.
Q: Does Galves publish regional values?
Yes. Our website requires the user enter their zip code so all values can be adjusted for the user’s specific region.
Q: I placed an online order for printed books. How long will it take to receive my printed book order?
Orders placed online at galves.com are processed the next business day. Yearly subscription orders for printed books are sent via First Class U.S. Mail from our office in NJ.
