April 24th, 2019 by

Whether you’re looking to go green with a bike, shopping for an upgrade, or need some quick cash, selling your car, truck, or SUV can be a headache. Well, it doesn’t have to be, because you can make the whole thing easier on yourself when you sell your car to a used car dealership.

Of course, it is still a process, but you can simplify it for yourself when you follow our four easy steps to sell your car to a Kendall car dealership in Alaska, Oregon, or Idaho.

know the detailsKnow the details

It’s important to know the details of your current car in order to get the best value from it. There’s a good chance you already know the year, make, and model of your current vehicle, but it’s helpful to have a strong understanding of features and amenities that are included with the trim level of your car. For example, your car has a better value if the model includes a touchscreen navigation system than if your glove box is stuffed with road maps. Make a list of the features to be sure you have a sound understanding of your vehicle’s details. Be sure to locate the title for the vehicle if you have it, as well.

Calculate the value of your vehicle

There’s a plethora of online resources that you can use to get an estimate of your used car value. Use online used car price guides like Kelley Blue Book, Edmunds, and NADA to get an idea of the value of your vehicle. This will help you know what to expect when you get to the dealership. Kendall Automotive Group makes it easy for you to calculate the trade-in or selling value of your car with our trade-in value tool.

Find a dealership near you

Most used car dealerships will buy used cars without expecting you to turn around and buy a car from their inventory in return. However, not all dealerships will buy your used car for the same value. Our car appraisal experts can also take a look at your car to let you know the true market value of your car in Alaska, Idaho, and Oregon. Locate your nearby Kendall car dealership, pay us a visit and let our friendly team know you’d like to sell your car.

Make a deal

Once you settle on a price to sell your car, our team will draw up the paperwork and buy your car for the negotiated price. If you happen to be in the red and owe more on the car than what your car is worth, ask our finance team at our Kendall Finance Center the options for you and go from there.

Follow these simple steps and you’ll be well on your way to selling your car, truck, or SUV to Kendall Automotive Group. Contact us at your nearby Kendall dealership for questions or assistance with selling your car. Our used car dealerships are available to serve you in cities across Alaska in Wasilla, Solodtna, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Kenai, Idaho in Meridian and Nampa, and Oregon in Eugene and Bend.
