Frequently Asked Questions
Do I pay taxes when I sell my car?
Possibly. A buyer will not be required to pay taxes on the sale if it resulted in a capital loss. The state and federal governments consider selling your car for more than you invested as a profit. For example, if you purchased a used car from a family member for $1,000 and later sold it for $4,000, you will need to pay taxes on the profit. However, you won’t need to pay the tax immediately.
Can I sell my financed or leased car?
Yes. To sell a leased vehicle outright, a buyer must buy the vehicle for the amount specified in the lease contract before they can sell it, which sometimes involves taking out another loan.
Why should I sell my car to a dealership?
One of the best parts about selling your car to a dealership is that you don’t have to worry about locating a buyer, negotiating a price or waiting to receive your payment. Our professional sales team ensures the selling process is quick, transparent and easy!
What do I need to sell my car?
The selling process begins with gathering all documents related to your car, such as vehicle title, service records and the original sales paperwork if it’s still in your possession. While you likely know the basics like the year, make, model and current mileage, you also need to know your car’s trim level and the features that came with your specific vehicle.
