Steps to Take Before Selling Your Car to a Dealership

Before you sell your car to a dealership, there are a few steps you need to take to prepare your vehicle and set yourself up for success:

Determine Your Vehicle’s Value

There are a number of online tools you can use to determine your car’s trade-in value, including Kelley Blue Book and Cars.com.

Have Your Car Detailed

A simple way to increase the value of your vehicle is by having it detailed and washed. You should also replace mall parts like your windshield wipers and floor mats if they seem as though they’ve been worn out.

Gather Your Paperwork

Make sure you bring your title to prove that you’re the legal owner of the vehicle. You should also bring your owner’s manual, service records, and loan payoff information (if you still have a balance on your current vehicle). Having all your paperwork on hand will help to move along the process faster and more smoothly.

Choose the Right Dealership

Not all dealerships are the same. For example, if you have an older model, you may be better off selling it to a dealership that primarily sells used cars. On the other hand, most dealerships in the Stroudsburg area will be happy to buy a newer, gently-used vehicle.

How Does Selling Your Car to a Dealership Work?

Once you have completed the steps above, you’re ready to sell or trade in your vehicle at a dealership! While walk-ins are allowed, we highly recommend scheduling an appointment to sell your car so that you don’t have to wait around.

Shortly after filling out the online form, a staff member will contact you to gather your information and run a vehicle history report on your car.

When you bring your vehicle into the dealership to sell or trade it in, the service experts will perform a quick inspection to ensure that everything is in working order and meets their quality standards. Once you are presented with an offer, you can either accept it, negotiate, or pursue a different dealership to see if you can get a better deal.
