Step One: Research Your Car's Value

When you first consider selling your car, it's always a good idea to research its current market value. What does current market value mean? Essentially, it's a combination of factors that contribute to its overall worth, including:

  • Vehicle condition
  • Mileage
  • Geographical location

To calculate your car's current market value, you can use a wide range of online resources to get an idea. These include systems like Black Book®, which provide you with insight into your vehicle's worth.

Once you have a range of what your car's value is, you can confidently begin getting quotes and finding the best offer from a dealership

Step Two: Get Ready for a Sale 

Now that you know what your car is worth, it's time to get it in the best condition possible for the sale. Regardless of the age of your vehicle or its mileage, you can always give it some extra TLC to ensure that you get maximum value.

For starters, make sure to address any maintenance concerns. If your car needs an oil change, tire replacement, or any other service, it's always a good idea to take care of it before you bring it by the dealership.

Similarly, if your vehicle has any significant wear on the exterior, like noticeable dents or scratches, you may want to get those addressed as well. The same goes for paint fade or discoloration that may be present.

Though the exterior of your car is important for a first impression, it's also what's on the inside that counts. If your interior has any stains or rips, it's a good idea to get those cleaned and fixed up.

Additionally, make sure to clear out any personal belongings in your vehicle before you make your way into the dealership. This way, your car has a clean slate and can be properly inspected without any of your items present.

Step Three: Seal the Deal

You have your car's value and it's prepped. Now, it's time to seal the deal and sell your car. For a streamlined experience, you can easily get your car's value online from our dealership.

Our values are calculated by using the same Black Book® data that dealers across the country utilize. All you have to do is provide us with your vehicle's:

  • Year
  • Brand
  • Model
  • Mileage

From there, you can also add on your vehicle's options for the most accurate value. Want to lease or finance the latest Ford vehicles? You can easily put the value of your car towards a new set of wheels.
