Consequences of a Private Sale

When you sell to private buyers, they may come back a few days later demanding their money back because they are dissatisfied with the car. Or worse yet, they may sue you for all kinds of unfounded damages simply because they want the car for free and want to make money off the deal.

When you sell your car to us, you can forget about it when you hand over the keys. You won't have to worry about us hounding you about it at a future date.

We keep all our transactions honest and transparent because we want to uphold our good reputation and keep you as a customer. We hope that you'll buy your next vehicle from us, so we have every incentive to make your transaction go as smoothly as possible.

Taking Care of a Current Loan

Before you consider selling your current car to anybody, you need to pay off any existing loans. Only then will you get the title (pink slip) that you can then transfer to someone else. If you sell your car to us, you don't have to worry about your old financing. We'll pay it off and fold any money that you owe into the loan for your new purchase.

Saving Money

A private buyer can afford to give you the high retail Blue Book price for your sale. Our offer will be the high wholesale price at best because we need to make money on the deal. But if you sell your vehicle to us in the form of a trade-in, you can save more money than you make on a private sale.

Because we're giving you a credit on the purchase of your next car, we can offer you a bit more. You won't need to borrow as much, which gives you lower monthly installments, less total interest paid, and a lower overall cost.

For example, assume you want to buy a $35,000 car at an Annual Percentage Rate of 2.4 percent for a term of 60 months.

·         Without a trade-in, your estimated monthly installment reaches $620 for a total cost of $37,200.

·         With a trade-in worth $7,000 at the same terms, your monthly payment drops to $496 for a total cost of $29,760. You end up saving $7,440, which is more than the cost of the trade-in.

You'll also save money on sales tax because, in Ohio, it is charged on the price of the car minus any trade-in allowance. If you sell your old vehicle to a private buyer, you'll need to pay the full sales tax on any car that you buy.
