Selling to a Dealership

Private Selling vs Selling to a Dealership

If you’re sitting on an automotive classic, private selling is often a lucrative path inside a niche market. For the rest of us, selling a used sedan, truck, or SUV can often be a lot of work for minimal return.

From the inspection process and posting to multiple auction sites to haggling with interested buyers, private sellers can often spend weeks or months before making a deal. This doesn’t even account for all the paperwork you’ll need to transfer and duplicate.

On the other hand, when you decide to sell your used car to our dealership, we guarantee to provide a competitive offer along with a seamless transition. Simply schedule an appraisal and our in-house team of experts will apply their knowledge and local market data to secure a fair price.

Resources for Selling a Used Car

Our friendly and experienced appraisers are only one aspect of our selling process.

Tell us your vehicle’s year, mileage, and condition to receive an initial estimate. On the day of your appraisal, our service team will give your used car a complimentary inspection to help secure an accurate price.

Like what you hear? Fantastic! Sit down with our finance team who’ll help you put the remaining pieces in place. Not only can they help transfer over the title and other paperwork, but they’ll also be the ones who’ll present you with a certified check.

All in all, selling a used car to our dealership can take a fraction of the time it takes to sell privately. You also will be able to drive away with complete confidence!

If you’re like most local drivers, you might consider rolling the value of your used car into a brand-new make and model! This has the potential to lower your monthly payments, making it easier to choose a higher trim level.  

To get a better idea of what your used car is worth, take a moment to fill out our Value Your Trade form. If you already have your sights on one of our new, used, or certified pre-owned models, use our handy car payment calculator to see how it can potentially fit your budget.
