How to Sell a Car at a Dealership

You know that you can enjoy impressive savings by selling your car, but how does selling your car to a dealership work? We’ve laid out the process from start to finish, so you can take the first steps on your next adventure with confidence. After you’ve learned how to sell a car at a dealership, you can trust our team to help you get every penny that your vehicle is worth!

How Does Selling Your Car to a Dealership Work?

So, you’ve decided that it’s time to sell your car. There’s nothing too complex about selling your car or trading it in at a dealership. Here’s a step-by-step overview of the process:

  1. Clean up your car, covering both the interior and the exterior of the vehicle. Although it’s not usually a good idea to invest in expensive repairs, detailing your vehicle and catching up on services are often helpful.
  2. Make a thorough list of your car’s benefits and attractive features. Along with your vehicle’s maintenance history, you should record any special features, accessories, or modifications that it’s offering.
  3. Have your car’s title on hand. Although it is possible to trade-in a car that you’re still paying off, most drivers will need to have the title of the vehicle they plan to sell.
  4. Do a little research to determine your car’s value. Explore online resources, and find out how much similar vehicles are selling for in Edgewater and Crofton.

After you’ve taken the preliminary steps laid out above, it’s a good idea to contact our dealership and make an appointment! This allows the next steps—seen below—to take place as smoothly as possible:

  1. When you arrive at the dealership, you’ll be connected to our used car manager. They’ll collect your information and run a report to ensure that the information you’ve provided is accurate.
  2. An inspection will take place. This inspection will cover your vehicle’s key systems, so the dealership can be certain that the vehicle is a good buy.
  3. After the inspection, you’ll receive an offer. In most cases, it’s both possible and beneficial to negotiate.

Here at Jaguar Annapolis, our offers are never contingent on whether you choose to buy one of our new or pre-owned vehicles! Should you choose to accept your offer, you can take cash for your vehicle or apply the money directly to your next loan.

Benefits of Selling Your Car

Selling a car to a dealership like Jaguar Annapolis is always quicker and easierthan selling it on your own or trying to find a buyer on the side of the road. What’s more, trading in your vehicle with a dealership allows you to save on taxes, too! If you sell your car at a different location, you’ll pay taxes on the vehicle’s full purchase price. If you sell your car to a dealership, you’ll just pay taxes on the difference between your old vehicle’s trade-in value and the new vehicle’s purchase price.
