How Does Selling Your Car to a Dealership Work?

Selling your vehicle is an easy and transparent process, but there are a few steps you’ll need to take to ensure you’re prepared and get the very best deal.

Clean Your Vehicle

If you want to increase the value of your vehicle before you bring it into the dealership, be sure to have it washed and detailed. It’s also not a bad idea to replace things like windshield wipers and floor mats.

Research the Value of Your Vehicle

Use our Value Your Trade tool or other trusted resources like and Kelley Blue Book to get an idea of how much your vehicle is worth.

Write Down Any Benefits Your Vehicle Has

Be sure to list any accessories (bike mounts, extra key fobs, etc.) your car has. You can also increase its value by providing a detailed history of your vehicle’s maintenance records.

Locate Your Car’s Title

To ensure you get your offer as soon as possible, be sure to have your car’s title on hand when you sell it.

What to Expect When Selling Your Car to a Dealership

Once you have taken the steps above, make an appointment with your dealership of choice to sell your vehicle. Typically, a Used Car Manager will collect your information and perform a vehicle history check on your car. In some cases, the Used Car Manager or members of the on-site service center will inspect your vehicle to ensure its in good condition.

After the dealership presents you with your offer, you can either accept it or take it to another Strongsville dealership to see if you can get a better deal. It’s that easy!
