Below, we’ve compiled all the need-to-know information to make your car-selling experience as easy as possible. Plus, we’re happy to help provide clarity as you prep your car for sale—so reach out to us to learn more!

Sell Us Your Car Online

We make it easy for you to sell your car without having to go through any third-party services or resources. Rather, we’re proud to offer our online appraisal tool to simplify the selling process. Simply enter all the necessary information about your vehicle—things like mileage, condition, and features—and we’ll provide an instant offer.

When you have your offer, head to our dealership, and our staff will conduct an additional appraisal to verify the vehicle’s condition. Once that’s complete, you’ll have cash in hand!

Preparing My Used Car for Sale

As you look to sell your vehicle, it’s important to keep your vehicle in its best condition to further add value. By doing so, you can profit more—so follow these steps to enhance your cash!

Do Research

Being aware of your vehicle’s value is an essential part of the negotiation process. As we discussed above, you can use our online appraisal tool to get an idea of what your vehicle is worth. Additionally, it’s worthwhile looking into websites like Kelley Blue Book® to get a clear idea of what you can expect as you negotiate a sale price.

Gather All Necessary Paperwork

No matter how or where you sell your vehicle, you’ll need all of the relevant paperwork to complete the sale. This primarily includes the vehicle’s bill of sale, title, insurance, and lienholder paperwork, if applicable.

If your vehicle is currently being financed, you’ll want to reach out to your provider to make sure you have all of the correct paperwork to finalize the sale.

Stay Up to Date with Maintenance Needs

Appearances matter. It’s important to make your vehicle the best it can look—and that begins by cleaning the vehicle and completing any necessary service or repairs. This could include anything from repairing dents to doing a deep clean of the vehicle’s interior.

If your vehicle needs maintenance, schedule an appointment with our service center. We’ll make sure your vehicle is in pristine condition to enhance your sale!

Benefits of Selling My Car to a Dealership

When you sell us your car, you avoid the middleman. This means you avoid fees for posting a listing on a third-party website, and you avoid having to complete the legalities of a car sale on your own. Rather, our dealership takes care of the entire process behind the scenes as to streamline the sale—and to provide added assurance from beginning to end.

Plus, when you sell us your car, you can rest assured that you’re getting a fair deal. We examine every facet of your sedan, truck, SUV, or van to ensure the best possible offer. We want to make sure you leave our dealership with the cash you deserve.
