Time is money
This age-old phrase is very accurate when it comes to selling your car. When you try to sell privately, getting a good offer can take weeks or even months, and if you’re waiting to buy your next car until your current one sells, this most likely means miles are racking up, causing the value to go down. Conversely, when you sell to a dealership, you can sell your car and even get into a new one within just a couple of hours. Selling privately also consumes a lot of your precious time. Before listing the vehicle, you should give it a full detail to make it more attractive for possible buyers. Even after it’s listed, you have to keep up with advertisements, arrange meetings, and meet with strangers. This takes up unnecessary time, which can be saved by selling to a dealership!
Sell for cash or trade-in
Selling your car to a dealership opens up options for your next step. When you sell to a dealership, an expert will appraise it, and you’ll get a real offer in minutes. Your first option is to take the money for which your car is appraised and head out because selling to a dealership is a quick and easy hand-to-hand exchange between seller and buyer. If you need a new vehicle after trading in, you can roll the money that your current car is appraised for right into the cost of a new car. This allows you to walk into the dealership with an old car and out with a new one with virtually no wait time!
Save the hassle
Selling to a dealership cuts a lot of the hassle and drastically simplifies the process. Car dealers are experts at buying and selling cars, which is a given. This means that they know all the mandatory paperwork allowing them to take care of it efficiently. In turn, this will enable you to leave with cash or new keys in your hand. Conversely, selling to a third party puts all the necessary paperwork on you, including the title transfer, bill of sale, and other required papers on the seller. This takes up more of your time and creates more headaches for both buyer and seller.
