Benefits of Selling Your Car to a Dealership | Coast to Coast Auto Sales | Indianapolis, IN
When you want to get a new car, you usually need to sell your old one to help fund your new wheels. While you can take the time to sell it yourself, there are a lot of benefits to selling it directly to a car dealership.
When you take your old car to a dealership, you can be in and out of the door within a few hours. On the other hand, trying to sell your car on your own can take weeks or months. It involves advertising the car, detailing it, arranging times for potential buyers to test-drive the car. You must also do all the bargaining, and there’s always the risk that the buyer will back out at any time.
Another benefit for the dealership is how easy the process is. Car dealerships are experts on buying and selling cars. The dealer will handle all of the necessary paperwork and you know you will leave with money in hand. If you try a third-party sale, you will be responsible for the title transfer, bill of sale, and any other necessary documents. You will also have to deal with all of the buyer’s paperwork and financing, as well.
Save Money on Taxes
In most states, if you sell your car to the dealership while buying one from them at the same time (trading in your car), then you can usually save money on the sales tax of your new car. For example if the dealer gives you $10,000 for your old car and your new car costs $30,000, you will only pay sales tax on the remaining $20,000.
