While we all wish good things could last forever, sadly, this is not always the case, especially with our cars. At Gwinnett Place Honda, we know that there comes a time when you need to sell your car. Maybe you are looking for a different model? Perhaps you don't need a car anymore and are looking for some extra cash? Whatever the reason, our dealership is the first place you should think of when getting ready to search "sell my car."
Although we are an authorized Honda dealership, we buy every make and model of used car, so don't be afraid to come here if you are selling a used Chevy, Ford, Kia, or Toyota. By carrying different makes and models of used cars, we offer our customers two great incentives. First, if you are looking to switch to Honda, we can put the value of your used car toward the price of a new Honda vehicle, even if you are not trading in a Honda model. Second, if our customers want a superior used model, they know they will find one here at Gwinnett Place Honda, even if they are buying a vehicle from another automaker.
There are some things you should keep in mind when you are selling your used cars to us. First, you are going to get a better deal from a dealership than anywhere else, and it is going to be hassle-free. Second, you can trade your car in for a different one from our dealership instead of selling it to us for cash. Third, if you have an outstanding loan balance due on your car, we will help take care of it as part of the process of buying your car. Finally, you should make sure you have all your car's papers in order before you start the selling process. Following the steps illustrated below will help us give you a great deal on your used car.
There are many ways and places to sell your car. You can put a classified ad in your local paper, and there are plenty of websites where you can sell your used things, including your used car. You can even put a little sign saying "For Sale" in your car's window. However, there are two problems with taking this approach. First, you will never know for sure if you got the most money for your used car. Second, selling it yourself to a stranger can be a major hassle.
When you sell to a stranger, you may start by thinking you are going to get the Kelley Blue Book price for your make, model, and year, but odds are the private buyer you found is shrewd and will bargain you down. This person will bring their own mechanic, find a bunch of issues with your used car, and then demand a lower price. Even if they agree to your price, what will you do if their check bounces? This is just one of many hassles when you try to sell your used car yourself, including buyers who complain about issues with the car after the sale and ones who are just really creepy people. Do you really want to have to deal with all this?
When you sell your car to Gwinnett Place Honda, you know that we are going to give you a fair price for your used car, regardless of the make, model, and age. You will also have peace of mind that there won't be any problems with the payment you receive from us. This is because our reputation for honesty and fair dealing is more important to us than any single deal. We want folks to know that when they buy a new or used car from us or sell us their used car, they will be treated properly. Our business was built on word of mouth from people like you, so we know that if you are happy with the price we paid for your used car, you will tell your friends and family to come by Gwinnett Place Honda when they want to buy or sell a used car.
The other major advantage of buying from our dealership is that the entire process will be hassle-free. Our used car team will meet with you, inspect your used car, and give you the best price for your vehicle. You won't have to deal with annoying calls and emails from prospective buyers. It is a one-stop deal for your used car right here at our dealership in Duluth, Georgia.
If you are looking to get your next car, then you can trade-in your existing car for a new or used model that is currently available at our dealership. One of the best ways to get the most for your car is to trade it in for a new one. If you are like many people, you probably only own one car. Unless you are planning to retire or move to a place in Atlanta where you can rely on public transportation, then you are going to need a new set of wheels. This is why it pays to trade your car to our dealership for your next one.
At Gwinnett Place Honda, we can provide you with a trade-in value estimate for your car in just 10 seconds through our online portal. That's right; you can get the value you need in literally the blink of an eye. All you need to do is put in the make and model of your current vehicle, as well as the trim level and model year, and we will give you an immediate valuation. Once you've decided on the next vehicle you want to buy from us, we will inspect your car and give you a full trade-in offer in under 30 minutes. You can then decide whether to take the offer in cash or put it towards a newer car from our inventory.
Trading in your car is a great way to avoid the hassles of a private sale. We will take care of all the paperwork involved in the transfer. This includes any transfer taxes or other expenses connected with trading in your car for a new or used model from us. We will also help you avoid the hassles associated with selling the car yourself.
Another benefit of trading in your old car is that Georgia's TAVT is calculated after the trade-in value has been deducted from the cost of the new car. For you, this means that you will be able to reduce the cost of your next car, while no longer having to pay insurance and registration on your existing vehicle. This is what is known as a win-win proposition, with both you and us receiving a great deal in the process: you get your next vehicle at a lower price, and we sell an existing one off of our lot while restocking our used car inventory with the one we just purchased from you.
One of the most common situations we deal with here at Gwinnett Place Honda is drivers who have an existing loan on a car that they are looking to sell. Car loans can be one of the biggest expenses for many people, and the economy can impact drivers who are in the process of paying off their loans. Many had unforeseen expenses like health emergencies. Others lost their jobs or saw their working hours cut. Whatever the reason, many drivers come into our dealership looking to sell a car that they still owe money on. Don't worry. Our dealership will work with you to take care of the loan in order to buy your car.
If you currently owe money on your car and would like to sell it to us, please bring all of your auto loan documents to our dealership, along with the car you would like to sell. While our sales staff and technicians inspect your car in order to give you a cash price and trade-in valuation, our finance team will review your loan documentation in order to determine the payoff amount. If you decide to sell your car to us, we will work with your lender to pay off your car loan as part of the transaction.
The payoff amount will be factored into the price we pay for your car or the amount of trade-in value we will give you for your next vehicle from our dealership. But no matter the circumstances, if we buy your car, we will pay off the car loan and make sure to give you a copy of the loan payoff release so that the loan will no longer show up on your credit report. If you have an outstanding loan on your car, we will make sure you have peace of mind when you sell the car to us so that you won't have to worry about making payments anymore.
When you are selling anything, even a used car, its condition is a major selling point. People will always pay more for something that looks good. When you sell a house, cleaning up all the clutter and giving your home a new coat of fresh paint can help you rake in more money without having to make any structural repairs to your abode. The same goes for a used car.
The first thing to do is remove all the clutter from the trunk, glove box, and interior. Over time, we all accumulate things like shopping bags, spare tools, brochures from tourist traps, and even an odd napkin or straw from our favorite fast-food restaurants. Get a large garbage bag and throw out all the things you don't want. Next, vacuum the interior to get rid of all the excess dirt. The same goes for the exterior. Take your used car to a car wash or just wash it at home, but pay careful attention to the areas where the most dirt collects, like the wheels, grille, and any chrome trim. Mere cosmetic issues can have a huge impact on someone deciding how much to pay you for your car. A little bit of elbow grease can help you get more money when selling your used car.
Whether you are planning to sell to our dealership or try to sell your used car yourself, you should keep in mind that whoever is buying your used car will have it looked at by a trained mechanic at a vehicle service center. Make sure everything is in proper working order. While this may cost you a few dollars, it will reduce the hassle of selling your used car and probably result in a smoother sale. Similarly, you should check the engine oil and other vital fluids. A simple oil change won't cost you much and will make sure your used car runs smoothly when the prospective buyer takes it out for a test run. A clean used car that doesn't have any performance issues will get more money than a dirty one with problems.
One thing you should make sure is in order are your car's papers. Here in Georgia, you are going to need to have the car's title, your vehicle registration, your insurance card, and a completed bill of sale. Make sure you have the original title. If you cannot locate it, you will need to contact your County Tag Office to get another copy. Having all of your paperwork in order will help make the process of selling your used car as smooth as possible.
Before you arrive to drop off your car to complete the sale, you should make sure to have the owner's manual, as well as all keys and, if applicable, remotes. If you are missing any of these items, we may have to adjust the sales price since we will have to replace them. You should also bring along any lender information if the vehicle is subject to a lease or loan. If you have paid the loan off, then a copy of the release will also be needed. Also, don't forget to have anyone listed on the title, lease, or loan present at our dealership for the sale, along with their state-issued photo identifications, such as a driver's license or passport. This will help the entire transaction go as smoothly as possible. If you cannot locate the title or any other critical paperwork, please let us know ahead of time so that one of our team members can work with you to locate the missing documents or obtain suitable replacements.
Here is another way where selling your used car to us has its advantages. If you are selling your used car to a private buyer, you will need to gather all of this paperwork yourself. This means you will need to fill out the transfer of ownership on the back of your car's title. You will also have to call your auto insurance company to cancel the vehicle's insurance and then cancel the registration, which must be done within 30 days of the sale. Finally, you will have to use the proper form to complete a bill of sale for the transaction. When you sell your used car to Gwinnett Place Honda, our used car team will prepare the transfer papers for you and assist you in canceling the insurance and registration for the vehicle. Our sales and finance team will also assist you with paying off any existing loan so that we can buy the car from you free and clear. This is just another way we make selling a used car as smooth as possible.
We are dedicated to making sure our customers are fully satisfied, whether they are selling their car to us or buying one from us. To us, selling you a car goes beyond just the sale, it is about making a connection with you and finding you the perfect match. Anyone can sell a car, but there really is a difference when you work with a dealership who is willing to go the extra mile to offer you a great deal on the vehicle you are trading in or selling. You’ll experience that difference here.
Whether you are coming by to find your next new or used vehicle, or you are looking to sell us your current car, we will always give you the highest level of customer service. This applies to all our different teams, from our sales staff to the team of trained technicians in our service department. We take the time to train every member of our staff and get them to understand why customer service is the most important part of our business. You will see this throughout our dealership. We make sure that everyone who visits us leaves completely satisfied. Doing what’s right for our customers is our first priority.
