Sell Us Your Car

If you finally decided it's time to let go of your trusty old car and get a new one, you have two basic options: either sell it and shop for a new car or trade it in for another vehicle and just pay the difference. If you don't know where to start and which is right for you, then don't worry - we're here to help you.

What's the Best Way to Sell My Car?

If you're interested in getting cash for your car, you can do that by selling it on the open market or directly to a dealer. If you decide to go for the first option, then you are pretty much on your own, meaning that you have to do your own research regarding what the market price is for cars that are the same make and model as yours, but also with other similarities, such as age, engine type, and features. 

However, you're likely to get slightly more than you would if you took it to a dealer, as they have to resell it for a profit. It's up to you if the small price difference is worth you researching its price, advertising it, and negotiating with potential buyers all on your own. A simpler and more straightforward way is selling it to a dealer. You can find out how much your car is worth to them directly on their website, as all you have to do is input some basic details regarding your vehicle and you'll receive a cash offer.

How Does Selling to a Dealer Work?

If you've decided to avoid the hassle of advertising and selling your car, you can usually get a good price on it by simply contacting your local dealer. After getting an estimate of how much your car is worth via their website, the next thing you should do is pay them a visit, so they can physically check the car's condition, ask you relevant information about it, and make you a concrete offer. 

After they get a good idea of what your car's condition is, the people at the dealership will probably make you a fair offer, based on relevant information like what the price is on cars that are similar to yours, how many cars of the same make and model they currently have on sale, whether or not they need to invest time and money to make your car sellable, and other similar factors. 

How Much Can I Sell My Car For?

Although a significant part of your car's price is set by the market, there are still many things you can do to get the best deal you can. The first thing you can do is to make sure your car is in the best condition it can be. This involves taking care of all aspects that may make your car look less marketable but are cheap and easy to fix, such as small scratches and dents, bad lights, and other minor aspects that can make a difference.

You also need to thoroughly clean your car, both inside and out. Of course, car dealership professionals have seen many cars throughout their careers and they're not likely to be put off by a car simply because it's not clean, but a dirty car can tell them a lot about how that car was treated up until that point. So make sure you take care of all minor repairs and take your car to the car wash and you are likely to get the best price you can. 

Can I Get a New Car From the Same Dealer?

Trading in your old car for a new one is typically the most advantageous way of upgrading your vehicle, as some car dealerships give you a better evaluation for your used vehicle than they would if you simply trade it for cash. Once you go into your dealership with your old car, they will take care of everything for you. The first step is to thoroughly inspect your car and take it for a test drive, so they can evaluate its technical condition. Once they have enough information, they will make you an offer. 

Getting a new car from the same dealer where you sell your old one doesn't only make sense from a financial point of view, it's also amazingly convenient. You basically drive into the dealership with your old car and drive out with a new one, without losing time and stressing out about looking for buyers and taking care of the paperwork yourself. Also, if you need a car loan to cover the difference in price between your old car and the new one, the dealership can also help you secure it.

Finally, another major advantage of trading in your car for a new one is that you may have significantly less sales tax, as in many states your old car's trading value is deducted from the old one's price. So if, for example, your old car is evaluated at $20,000 and you want to buy a new $40,000 one, you only have to pay sales tax on the difference between the two, which is $20,000. So take a drive to a dealership today and you may be driving home in a brand new vehicle!

How Does a Concierge Dealership Service Work?

Using concierge services is the easiest and most convenient way to buy, sell, or service your vehicle. When choosing a new one, they give you access to a huge inventory, show you your lease and payment options, and even deliver your new car right to your door. When you sell or trade in your old vehicle, you can get a quick evaluation and have someone pick it up right from your driveway. 

Selling a car and buying a new one can be difficult and stressful if you're not sure what you're doing. Visit Koons Chevrolet White Marsh and our professionals will ease your mind and take care of everything for you!
