Selling to a dealership in your area no longer has to be a hassle with our finance department readily available to help you with the process. Apply for financing today to get started.

How Does Selling Your Car to a Dealership Work? 

Wondering if selling your car to a dealership is a good idea? Learn more about the car selling process below:

  • Clean Up Your Car: Having your vehicle cleaned complete with washing, detailing and replacements can greatly increase the value of your vehicle before you bring it into our Ormond Beach or Palm Coast dealership.
  • Have Your Car’s Title on Hand: Make sure to have your car’s title on hand to save time on your end as well as the dealer’s.
  • Write Down the Benefits Of Your Car: Write a detailed list of the maintenance history as well as the additional features and accessories such as bike mounts and key fobs.
  • Research Your Car’s Value: Use tools such as Cars.com or Kelley Blue Book to find the trade-in value of your vehicle. This can empower you to advocate for yourself when trading your vehicle.
  • Pick Your Dealership Wisely: If you are selling an older model, check out a used car dealership, but if you are interested in selling a newer gently used vehicle then a dealership like Daytona Mitsubishi is the best option.

The Next Steps at our Port Orange Dealership

The next steps are as follows:

  • Make an Appointment: Make an appointment so that your dealer can prepare for you and have the proper bill of sale ready to go.
  • Used Car Manager: Typically a used car manager will handle the sale, or they will delegate the task to a Daytona Mitsubishi salesperson. 
  • Inspection: The used car manager or the service department will then inspect the vehicle to see the quality and mechanical condition.
  • Consider the Offer: You can then either accept the offer or see if someone is willing to buy your car.
