How Much Should I Sell My Car For?
How much should I sell my car for? What is a good price for my used truck? What is my used SUV worth? These are all questions you may ask when you decide to sell your car and we understand at The Car Depot. When you sell your used car, truck or SUV, you want to get the best price possible to put toward your next car, a family vacation, a new house or just bills. No matter why you choose to sell your car, you want the best price possible and in the Birmingham, AL area – that means The Car Depot.
How To Set a Price for Your Used Car
We want to buy your car at The Car Depot – but you want to get a great price for your used car. When you decide to sell your car, it is important to determine a realistic price or a range of prices that you will accept based on used car values. Resources like Kelley Blue Book®, Edmunds and NADA can help you determine a fair market value for your used car, truck or SUV – and it is our goal at The Car Depot to meet or beat Kelley Blue Book® values.
Here is a list of factors that you will want to consider when you put a price tag on your vehicle and the steps you will want to take before you sell.
- Make, Model and Trim Level
- Vehicle Mileage
- Running Condition
- Accident History
- Automotive Marketplace Trends
- How/Where You Choose to Sell
- Number of Previous Owners
- Extended Warranties and Protections
- Vehicle Location
- When You Choose to Sell
- Aftermarket Features and Accessories
1. Collect Information on Your Car
When you decide to value and sell your car, you will want to have all of the information on your car ready to go. Know the year, make, model, trim level, additional features, current mileage and running condition before you sell. Check your maintenance history and determine if any minor repairs are needed that can help increase the sale price.
2. Check Local Car Values
The popularity of select makes and models in certain locations may have an impact on how much your car is valued at. Check local vehicle listings and prices to see how your used car, truck or SUV fits in the local market. You may be able to get more for your vehicle – or you may need to be willing to accept a lower price.
3. Determine a Price and Find a Buyer
Use the information above to establish a price range you will accept for your vehicle and determine how and where you want to sell. The Car Depot will pay top dollar for your vehicle in Birmingham, AL and there is no pressure to buy a brand-new car on the lot – we are not a dealership – and you can avoid the hassle of posting a used car ad online or in the newspaper.
