Ira Subaru has a wide variety of automobiles to lease or buy. However, we buy used cars, as well, from drivers all over the Wakefield, Reading, and Danvers areas.

Learn all about the process below, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Used Cars Sold Privately vs a Dealership

You may think it's easier to sell a vehicle directly to a buyer. However, you'll usually have to go through the following steps:

  • List the car.
  • Answer phone calls.
  • Meet with prospective buyers.
  • Negotiate a price.
  • Handle paperwork to close the deal.

Not only that, but selling on your own could take about six to 10 weeks longer if the vehicle isn't in high demand.

If you're looking to sell your car quicker, then you'll probably want to work with a dealership. Plus, they'll take care of all the things we mentioned above. Once you sell your car to the dealer, all you'll need to focus on is which car you'll be buying next.

Selling Your Pre-Owed Car

The process of selling a used a car to a dealership is pretty straightforward. Before you bring it in for an inspection, you'll want to make sure all necessary maintenance has been completed and recorded. This includes oil changes, tire rotations, fluid top-offs, etc.

You'll also want to make sure the car gets thoroughly cleaned inside and out. Take care of any rips or stains that might be in the upholstery. If there are any tiny scratches on the exterior, see if you can get some paint to touch them up. Make sure all your personal belongings have been removed. You'll also want to make sure that everything that came with the automobile is in its proper place.

After your vehicle gets inspected at the dealer, you'll get an estimate of its worth. You can either take the money or put it towards a new ride. Then, you just need to sign some papers, and the car will officially belong to the dealership.

Bring your vehicle to our Danvers location and receive a free written Appraisal and Commitment to Purchase, good for three days.
