How Does Selling Your Car to a Dealership Work?

Man and Woman Signing Contract

If you’re getting ready to upgrade to a new or pre-owned vehicle from our inventory, you might want to consider selling your car. When you sell your vehicle, you can typically use that equity towards your new auto loan.

But, how does selling your car to a dealership work? Our experts at DeYarman Automotive Group are here to help you answer that question. We’ll go over the details of how to sell a car at a dealership so that you can upgrade your Knoxville adventures with a stylish new ride!

How to Sell a Car at a Dealership: Before You Schedule an Appointment

While you can certainly sell your vehicle on your own, selling to our dealership comes with plenty of advantages. Bring your vehicle into one of our dealerships, and you can rest assured that you’re working with a trustworthy team vs. a stranger that you might not be familiar with.

We’ll also take care of the complicated paperwork for you, so you can rest easy during your transaction. Before you schedule an appointment to trade in your vehicle at one of our dealerships, here’s what you should do:

  • Clean Your Vehicle: When you clean your vehicle inside and out, you’ll be able to get the most for your trade-in value.
  • Familiarize Yourself With Your Vehicle’s Perks: Whether it’s a full record of your vehicle’s maintenance history or extra key fobs, knowing all the perks of your vehicle will make it more appealing when you’re getting ready to sell it.
  • Gather the Paperwork: If you can get your vehicle’s title in hand and you have an estimate of your vehicle’s trade-in value, you can make the process even smoother when you sell us your car.
  • Choose the Right Dealership: If you decide to visit a Indianola dealership that’s not one of ours to trade in your vehicle, ensure that they can offer a seamless transaction. You want to ensure that the dealership knows the value of your vehicle and can get you the most for your vehicle trade-in.

How to Sell a Car at a Dealership: Once You Get There

So, how does selling your car to a dealership work once you get there? After you’ve scheduled an appointment and the dealership is expecting you, here’s what you can expect the trade-in process to be like:

  1. You can always walk into one of our dealerships to sell us your vehicle, but it may be more efficient to schedule an appointment online from the comfort of your own Pella home.
  2. Once you get to our dealership during your scheduled appointment, we’ll inspect your vehicle and go over any necessary information you have for us, whether it’s the number of keys or your maintenance history.
  3. After we’ve inspected your vehicle, we’ll provide you with a more exact trade-in offer.
  4. If you accept the offer, we’ll complete the final paperwork, and you can be on your way.
