Before Selling Your Car

Before diving into the steps of selling your car, it's essential to understand some of the tasks you will want to complete first. These may include evaluating the current market demand for your specific make and model, understanding the overall condition of your vehicle, and gathering relevant documentation such as the vehicle title, service records, and any outstanding loan information.

Those documentations will be important so you can easily transfer over the title as well as showcase the great condition your car is in, which can help you earn the best value for your car. It is also best to clean the interior and exterior of your car as well as consider handling any services it needs. This too can help to increase the overall value of your car.

Steps to Selling Your Car to a Dealership

Now, let's delve into the steps involved in selling your car to a dealership. Working with our team here at AcceleRide®, you’ll find it is quite easy to sell your vehicle directly to a local dealership. In fact, there are only three quick steps to earn the compensation you seek.

  • Provide Information – First, you’ll need to provide our team with more information about your vehicle. Its make, model, mileage, year, VIN (vehicle identification number), and other pertinent details will tell us a great deal about the vehicle and its potential value on the open market. Including photos too can help you get the most accurate offer for your car.
  • Get an Offer – Once we’ve learned more about your vehicle and have done some research to determine its worth, we’ll be able to provide you with an offer for it. This will be a fair offer for the true value of your car right up-front.
  • Get Paid – If you find our offer to be a good fit for you, you can accept it and get paid instantly. We can pay you online via Zelle® or you can pick up a check at one of our local dealerships. The choice is yours how you’d like to get paid!

The Benefits of Selling with AcceleRide®

Understanding the benefits of choosing AcceleRide® over other selling methods is crucial for making an informed decision.

  • Convenience: The primary advantage is the convenience of completing much of the selling process from the comfort of your home, especially beneficial for individuals with busy schedules or other commitments.
  • Fair and Competitive Offers: AcceleRide® utilizes a trusted process that combines online data and specific vehicle details, ensuring that the offer presented is fair and competitive in the market.

When You Visit the Dealership

The finalization of the transaction is a crucial step in the process of selling your car to a dealership. AcceleRide® strives to make this stage as smooth as possible, ensuring that you walk away with the compensation you deserve. Once you've provided all the necessary information about your vehicle and received a preliminary offer, the next step is to schedule a visit to your local dealership.

When you arrive at the dealership, your car will undergo a thorough inspection. This step is essential to confirm the accuracy of the information provided during the online evaluation. The inspection is typically carried out by experienced professionals who will assess the overall condition of your vehicle, including its mechanical components, exterior, and interior.

After the inspection is complete, you will receive a final offer based on the results. With the offer accepted, the team will then guide you through the necessary paperwork to transfer ownership. This typically involves completing the bill of sale, ensuring that both parties have all the required documentation, and handling any state-specific requirements for the transfer.

Once all the paperwork is in order, you'll receive your compensation promptly, whether you want a check or prefer to be paid digitally through Zelle®.

Considering a Trade-In?

If you're in the process of selling your car to a dealership, it's worth exploring the option of a trade-in. A trade-in allows you to exchange your current vehicle directly with the dealership when purchasing a new one that you can enjoy smiles for miles in.

AcceleRide® provides an integrated and convenient platform that streamlines the selling process and also offers the flexibility of exploring trade-in options. A trade-in involves using the value of your current vehicle as credit toward the purchase of a new one. This can ultimately offset some of the cost of your new vehicle with the equity you've built in your existing one. This allows you a feasible way to transition from your current car to a new one.

With AcceleRide® too, you can browse through a wide range of makes and models, review specifications, and customize your deal—all from the comfort of your home. When customizing your deal online, you’ll be able to seamlessly integrate the value of your trade-in into your payment plan. The user-friendly interface makes it easy to understand how your trade-in impacts your financing, providing transparency throughout the process.
