How to Sell a Car at a Dealership, Step by Step

How does selling your car to a dealership work? It's honestly pretty simple! Our inventory buying process isn't different from other dealerships. The core concept we can promise consistently is a good old-fashioned sense of local business, that includes getting to know our clients and making sure they're treated like family. We extend that promise into our car intake process - no matter if you're trading in or simply looking to sell your car. Here's generally what selling your car to a dealership looks like, along with some helpful tips:

  1. Clean Up Your Car: Believe it or not, even just giving your car a quick vacuum and wash can go miles for your first impression at the dealership - a full detail goes even further! Weigh out the expense of cleanup vs. what you could get in return.
  2. Write Down the Benefits Of Your Car: Collecting a detailed history of any aftermarket or repair work will go a long way in helping the dealership's confidence in the vehicle you're trying to sell.
  3. Have Your Car's Title on Hand: Having your vehicle's title ready when you sell it will save time on the dealer's end and get you your offer faster. 
  4. Research Your Car's Value: Visit our webpage regarding car buying and you'll find a handy tool provided by the trusted folks at Kelley Blue Book which can help estimate your car's value in a matter of minutes!
  5. Make an Appointment: You're absolutely welcome to walk in anytime to conduct business, but we recommend making an appointment for your vehicle's appraisal, so we can ensure someone is available to work with you right away!
  6. Used Car Manager: We'll introduce you to who is essentially our "Intake Manager," someone who oversees the procurement of vehicles for our dealership. They'll be your point of contact during the sale process.
  7. Inspection: Either the used car manager or another trained associate will inspect your vehicle for damage and mechanical issues - sometimes relying on the help of the service department for advice on potential repair costs.
  8. Consider the Offer: Based on what the dealership offers you, you can accept the offer or go to another dealership to see if you can get a better offer. We're confident that if you make the short trip from Nashua to visit us, we'll make you an offer you'll love!
