Why Sell Your Car to a Dealership?

Put yourself into this situation for a moment––you decide to sell your car on your own, which means that marketing it to potential buyers is all on you. Once you clean it up and take pictures of it, you need to figure out where you’re going to market it and what price you feel you deserve for it. Then, you have to sift through all of the “interested” buyers, answer all of their questions, haggle over the price, and maybe find someone to buy it eventually. All of this can span over months or longer, and what’s worse is that there’s no one there to help you along the way.

That’s where partnering with a dealership to sell your car simplifies the process. Not only do you get paid right away for your car, you won’t have to worry about finding a new buyer for it. The dealership handles all the details, so you won’t have to stress over it. Selling to a dealership allows you to walk away with the best value for your vehicle, as dealers like Ryan Nissan offer high values for cars in excellent condition. This means more money in your pocket and less time trying to find someone who is interested in actually buying your car from you.

There are also a lot of risks associated with selling your vehicle on your own that you won’t experience with a dealership. Our professionals are well-versed and experienced in handling your sale, so you won’t have to worry if you’re going about the process properly or if you’ve missed a step. The peace of mind that you get from allowing a dealership to buy your car makes all the difference in your overall experience. That’s why so many drivers turn to Ryan Nissan when they want to sell their vehicle successfully and for more money.

What Do You Need to Do Before You Sell Your Car?

It’s important to take some necessary steps before you sell your car to us. First of all, it’s advised to know what your vehicle is worth. Utilize our online trade value tool to get a fair market price for your vehicle, and remember, the condition of the vehicle matters. If you’ve been rough on your vehicle and it’s exhibiting a lot of wear and tear, failing to address these matters prior to selling it can cost you. That’s why we recommend getting your car inspected to see what may need attention and replacing any parts that are worn or broken if you can. This will help to increase the value of your vehicle when you go to sell it.

Appearance matters, too, so be sure your vehicle is clean and pristine. If you’re able, get it detailed inside and out so that it looks its best when you take it to the dealership. If detailing it isn’t in the budget, washing it and cleaning it as best as you can is advised. Removing all personal items and important documents is also imperative to ensure that none of your sensitive information is left behind. Taking some time to make sure your car looks good will add to the overall impression it makes when you bring it to the dealership.

You’ll want to be sure that you do your research and find a dealership that is well respected in the area. At Ryan Nissan, our customers keep coming back to us when they need a new car or when they’re looking to get top dollar for their vehicle. The proof is in all the happy customers that come through our doors and the reviews they leave for us. Partnering with a reputable dealership will allow you to have the experience you deserve when it’s time to sell your car.

What Paperwork Do You Need?

Having all of the necessary documents required to sell your car at the ready will allow the process to be completed smoothly. The car’s title will need to be presented if your vehicle is paid off. If it’s not, the title will be held by the lienholder. You’ll also want to ensure that you have identification on you so that the dealership knows that you’re the person who, in fact, owns the vehicle. The dealership will be happy to assist you with obtaining these documents, so a simple call or chat to clarify any questions you may have is always a good idea.

It's also recommended to have your vehicle’s service records handy so the dealership knows which maintenance needs have been handled, when, and by whom. Typically, drivers keep this type of documentation in the glove box, which makes it easy to obtain when you’re ready to sell your car. You may also want to run a vehicle history report so that you can be transparent with the dealership; however, the dealership will most likely run its own report. Any warranty information that is still relevant is also helpful to have, so be sure to bring that with you as well.

When you get prepared before you step into the dealership, you’re able to make the process much simpler, as well as faster, so you’re able to get on with your day. The last thing many drivers want to do is spend hours at a dealership or forget pertinent information needed to sell their vehicle. When you partner with us and get prepared beforehand, we ensure that your experience will be flawless.
