Car dealer giving car key to buyer

 

We know you’re stressed. You need to sell your car and you are weighing your options. Well, you’ve come to right the place. You need a new car, right? Maybe it’s a pressing need or you just want to sell yours. At Dale Earnhardt Jr Buick GMC, we want to put the pieces together for you so you no longer need to stress. Read on to learn more about how to sell a car at a dealership. 

Preparing Your Car to Sell

Before you step foot in a dealership you need to make sure your vehicle looks great. Many Thomasville, GA and Crawfordville drivers detail their automobiles or take care of minor maintenance like an oil change or tire rotation before bringing it in. Here are some things you can do to prepare your vehicle for sale:

  • Clean Up Your Car: Clean your car inside and out. Spot clean upholstery stains, vacuum, and get rid of pet fur and odors. Replacing low-cost parts like floor mats or windshield wipers can also help refresh your car’s appearance and appeal.
  • Write Down the Benefits Of Your Car: Running a vehicle history report helps you save face and set the record straight in case there’s a misunderstanding with the price. 
  • Have Your Car’s Title on Hand: Your important documents: title, registration, license, maintenance, and receipts are things you bring to the dealer. If you added any customizations to your vehicle, you may need to remove them. You need to return your car to its original condition, however, some custom accessories like a roof rack carrier or bike rack can add value. 
  • Research Your Car’s Value: Utilize tools from Cars.com and Kelley Blue Book to see how they estimate its current value, or use the Dale Earnhardt Jr Buick GMC trade-in value calculator to get started.

How Selling Your Car to a Dealership Work in Your Favor?

The choice is yours to trade in your car at a dealership or to sell it on your own. However, selling a car privately in Panama City is often more of a hassle. How does selling your car to a dealership work in your favor? Here are some key benefits to consider:

  • Save Time & Avoid Hassles: You have to take pictures and take the time to list and advertise your vehicle when you sell it privately. Then, you may have to invite a stranger to your Crawfordville home to see the vehicle. Naturally, they will want to test drive your car—another potential risk. When you sell your car to a dealership, you can avoid all of these hassles and ‘what ifs,’ and the entire process will only take about one hour versus multiple days or weeks when you sell privately.
  • Lower Your New Car Price: Trading in is the better way to sell your car, and you reap the rewards. With a trade-in, the much more appealing option is to apply the money to your next vehicle purchase.
  • Save On Your Taxes: With this trade-in, there are no loose ends or complications. You won’t come up short at Dale Earnhardt Jr Buick GMC because you only pay sales tax on the difference between your trade-in amount and the price of your new vehicle.
