How to Sell a Car at a Dealership

Usually, a dealer will offer to buy your current vehicle through a buyback program when you come into a Orange Park dealership. This allows you to either save money on your next vehicle or to take the offer and have the money apply to a later purchase. Whichever choice you make, you can learn how to sell a car with our guide at Beaver Chevrolet. We hope to make the selling process as non-intimidating and transparent as possible to get you the deal you deserve. Contact us if you have more questions about the car-selling process.

How Does Selling Your Car to a Dealership Work? 

Selling your car to a Ponte Vedra dealership is quite simple. Here are a few steps to take before taking your vehicle to a dealership: 

  • Clean Up Your Car: Having your vehicle cleaned completely. Washing, detailing, and replacing missing parts can greatly increase the value of your vehicle before you bring it to a dealership.
  • Write Down the Benefits Of Your Car: Write down a detailed maintenance history of your vehicle, complete with a list of additional features and accessories. This will make your vehicle more appealing to dealerships.
  • Have Your Car’s Title on Hand: Having your vehicle’s title ready will make the process quicker and more efficient.
  • Research Your Car’s Value: Using our trade-in value tool, you can find the value of your vehicle and use it to negotiate with your Jacksonville Beach dealer.
  • Pick Your Dealership Wisely: If you have a newer gently used vehicle, it is likely a dealership will buy it. However, if you have an older model, it may be easier to sell it to a used car dealer.

What to Expect 

After preparing your car for inspection, here are the other steps you can expect: 

  • Make an Appointment: It is best to make an appointment to help the dealer know when to expect you and so that you can have the proper documents ready. You can walk in cold without an appointment but expect a longer wait.
  • Used Car Manager: Most dealers will direct you to a used car manager to handle the sale, collect your information, and run a vehicle history report on your vehicle.
  • Inspection: Sometimes the car manager will inspect your vehicle, sometimes the service center will inspect your vehicle for quality and mechanical condition.
  • Consider the Offer: Based on the dealership offer, you can either accept the offer or reject the offer and try a different local dealership.
