When it comes time to sell a vehicle, one of the more common questions drivers ask themselves is how to sell a car to a dealership. If you're wondering how to sell a vehicle to a dealer, rest assured that the experts at Off Lease Only are here to put you at ease. The process is easier than what other online car-buying sites might lead you to believe, so check out our step-by-step breakdown or reach out to us now to get started!

What Is My Used Car Value?

The first step that we recommend before selling a car is to determine the value of your trade. This way, you can get a feel for how much your vehicle is worth -- both as a trade-in or as a sale. In addition to using the online trade-in value calculator, we recommend coming in for an in-person vehicle appraisal. While other local car dealers may claim to give you the best offer online, they often don’t account for the actual condition of the vehicle and wind up giving you a lower trade-in offer than you expected. Off Lease Only will thoroughly inspect your vehicle with a professional used car appraisal, so you can learn the true value of your car from the start.

Fair Instant Cash Offers

While other car lots and online sites may play games with you, our used car dealerships believe in being as transparent as possible. How does our vehicle appraisal work? We'll begin by checking your car's structural condition -- both inside and out. Once we've examined everything from your car's paint to its interior features, we'll get under the hood to ensure that your engine, transmission, brakes and more are functioning at the proper levels. After we've verified that additional components ranging from your infotainment system to the windows are working properly, we'll analyze the used car market conditions and provide you with a competitive offer.

Make Off Lease Only Your First Choice

Whether you're interested in selling a leased car or trying to sell a vehicle you still owe money on, know that our nearby auto dealerships are here to lend a helping hand. If you want to get a fair used car offer or put your trade-in value toward a down payment on one of our many pre-owned vehicles, stop by today. Still unsure how to sell a car to a dealership?

Common Questions

How Do I Sell My Car at a Dealership?

To receive an official offer, you’ll need to have your vehicle appraised at the dealership. You can then complete the transaction if you have the following items on hand:

  • Valid state-issued photo ID/driver’s license for all registered vehicle owners
  • Valid car title or payoff information
  • Valid vehicle registration
  • All keys, remotes, and accessories

Keep in mind that if the vehicle is titled to more than one person, all parties will need to be present in order to receive payment.Requirements may also differ depending on where your vehicle is registered. For more information, please ask your Off Lease Only Expert.

Does Off Lease Only Buy Leased Cars?

In some cases, we may be able to buy your car even if it is leased rather than financed. However, you will need to check with your leasing company for more information about their policies and procedures.

Can I Sell a Car That is Not Paid Off?

If the offer you receive is less than the amount that you owe on the vehicle, you will have to pay the difference (i.e. negative equity) when you buy a truck or car.

However, if you plan to trade your vehicle in for another, you may be able to roll that negative equity into your new loan depending on your financial situation and credit history. And thanks to the super low prices at Off Lease Only, doing so might be a lot easier than you think! Ask your Off Lease Only Expert for details.

Why Sell Your Car to a Dealership?

You may choose to sell your car online rather than at a dealership, but there are some important points to keep in mind if you do. Selling a car online involves listing it, waiting for buyers to show interest, and scheduling test drives with potential buyers. If you’d rather expedite the process and shop for your next car right away—and ensure a fair offer—selling your car at a dealership is the way to go.

*All vehicles are subject to an actual appraisal in person. When an appraisal is finalized, the price we offer is the price we will pay for your car-guaranteed!
