If you’ve decided that it’s time to get rid of your old car, it’s understandable that you may be wondering where is the best place to start. No matter if you’re simply looking to sell your vehicle outright or if you’re simultaneously trying to buy a new vehicle — selling your car can be a daunting process. Fortunately, the Germain Buying Center is here to help explain how simple and straightforward the process can be. Our goal is to make selling your car as quick, convenient, and stress-free as possible. The Germain Buying Center gives you the convenience of selling your vehicle to a dealership, without the pressure of also purchasing a new vehicle.
Why Sell Your Car to the Germain Buying Center?
Whether it’s your very first time selling a car or you’re quite familiar with the process, the reality of the situation is that selling your car can be both time consuming and frustrating. Private car sales involve paying money to advertise your car, spending countless hours waiting for and communicating with potential buyers, having strangers in and out of your vehicle or near your home, and risking your safety when dealing with large sums of money.
Instead, trusting a reputable dealer group like the Germain Buying Center means that the entire transaction will be simple, straightforward, and secure. Rather than wasting days, weeks, or even months trying to sell your car on your own — our team can walk you through the process in as little as a few hours. In addition to receiving top dollar for your vehicle without any frustrating negotiation, we can handle all of the paperwork in-house for your convenience.
Tips for Getting the Most for Your Vehicle
Perform Routine/Required Maintenance
Ideally, this step begins long before it’s time to sell your vehicle. Performing routine maintenance procedures such as oil changes, tire rotations, brake inspections, and other preventative services help increase the value of your vehicle. It’s certainly a good idea to have this maintenance completed and documented by a trusted dealership.
Save Your Receipts
Has your vehicle had a major repair or service completed within a 6-month window of selling it? Keeping your receipts helps give you a greater chance to leverage these expenses when it’s time to sell. For example, a recent replacement of four new tires helps boost the value of your old car.
No matter if it’s done by yourself or by a professional, an interior and exterior vehicle detail helps increase value as well. Cosmetic appearance is a big factor in determining value. Clean, well-presented vehicles are simply more desirable than damaged, dirty, or worn-out models.
