How to Sell Your Car at a Dealership

When choosing to sell your car to a dealership, you get to enjoy a more convenient and streamlined process compared to selling it privately. That is because many of the steps required when selling privately aren't required when selling to a dealership.

Instead, in just a few simple steps, you can sell your car at a dealership, which our Blaise Alexander Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT of Lewisburg team outlines for you below. See how you can get a great offer for your car before choosing the new ride you want to drive along the roads of Sunbury, Danville, and Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.

Steps to Selling Your Car at a Dealership

Step 1

Find your vehicle's worth

Step 2

Prepare car for sale

Step 3

Visit dealership and get offer for your car

Get an Estimated Value for Your Car

The first thing you will want to do is see what your car is worth. That way, when you do visit the dealership, you will know how much you can expect to get for your car. To do so, you can use our value your car tool. With it, you can see what your car's estimated value is based on factors like:

  • Model and model year
  • Mileage
  • Condition of the vehicle
  • Included packages, if applicable

Another helpful reason to get an estimated value for your car is so you can start to budget for the new car you want. If you plan to use what you earn towards the purchase of your new car, you can see just how much you can expect to offset for the costs of your new vehicle.

Prep Car for Sale

Once you have a starting point of what you can expect to get for your car, you can then start to prepare your car for your visit to the dealership. What exactly will you need to do before bringing your car by the dealership? It is best to handle the following tasks, so you can ensure you get the best offer for your car:

  • Clean the interior and check operation of features 
  • Examine and wash the exterior
  • Handling any routine maintenance that is required

Along with preparing the car and working on boosting its value as much as possible, you will also want to have all the documentation needed to sell your car organized. Gathering your title, registration, and proof of insurance can help make the transition from your current car to the new car a quick and easy process.

Get an Offer for Your Car

At this point, you will be ready to stop on by the dealership and complete the process of selling your car. When you do visit the dealership, a quick inspection will be performed and then you will receive an offer for your car. You can choose to accept the offer one of two ways:

  • Sell Your Car: You can choose to simply sell your car, and you will get a cash offer for your vehicle.


  • Trade In Your Car: With a trade-in, you can choose to get credit to use towards the purchase of the new car you want in exchange for your vehicle.  

With a trade-in, you can save on the costs for the new ride you want since the amount you will be offered will be subtracted from the total cost of the new car. This too results in less taxes being owed.
