Selling Your Car to a Dealer: The Easy Solution

January 28th, 2016 by

If you are looking at cars for sale in Albany, then chances are you are ready to buy a new one. But you are faced with a dilemma; to sell your car privately, or not to sell it privately. That is the dilemma. Selling your car privately only has one added benefit, which is more money. You make more money on the sale if you do it yourself, but selling it to a dealer is so much easier.

As if making the selling process easier wasn’t enough, there are also some benefits to gain when you break down why selling your car to a dealer is the easy solution.

No Hassle

Selling your car to a dealer gives you peace of mind, and also reduces your struggle when it comes to selling the car privately. You don’t need to worry about finding paperwork, a trustworthy buyer, setting up advertising, responding to e-mails/calls, letting strangers into your yard, or even finding the price of your car. This (and much more than you realize) is the amount of work it takes to sell your car privately; and it’s a big hassle. If you opt to sell it to a dealership, however, you can just drive your car to the dealership and sell it. They have all the paperwork there, and they will be able to tell you what your car is worth after quickly appraising it.

Sure, it might be less than what you would get for it if you sold it on Craigslist. But, in order to do that you essentially need to take on a part-time job as a dealer. If you want to experience how hard it is for them to try and sell a car, then by all means try and sell it privately. However, if you are getting rid of it to just get it out of your hands; sell it to a dealer.

They Take it No Matter What

Privately selling your car can be a stressful process, and it can be even more stressful if you have a car nobody wants. The dealer, however, will take it no matter what. They don’t care if there is a huge dent on the rear bumper; they are still going to take it. Why? Because, they will figure out how to turn it around and make a profit out of it somehow.

This means you don’t have to go through the extra work it takes to try and sell a car that’s not very popular; or one that’s not in the greatest shape. If you are sitting here reading this wondering if your car will sell quickly or not, then chances are it won’t. You know what people want because you see it on the road all the time. If it isn’t one of those vehicles you see frequently, save yourself from an even bigger headache; just sell it to the dealer.

Trade-in Option

You are selling your car, which means you want to buy a new one. Well, you’re in luck! Because taking your car to a dealer makes the buying process a lot easier. Some dealers will offer a trade-in option, and they will let you trade your older car in for a new one. Generally, opting for this will give you more bang for your buck, and the dealer will offer a larger value for trade than they would give you in cash for your vehicle. Which means you not only just made selling your old car easier, but also buying your new car easier as well.

When it comes to selling to a dealer, it’s clear that it’s not only an easier option; but also a more beneficial one. You might get more money for selling your car privately, but its very conditional. You need to have the right car for sale, at the right time, for the right price, while the right person is looking. After taking on the job of part-time car salesman for two or three months (what, did you think your car was going to sell right away?) you will reap the one financial benefit. Or, you can make the process easier, quicker, and more beneficial for yourself in other ways, and sell it to a dealer.
