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 on its worth. You can either take the money or put it toward 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.

Buying a New One

If you decide to use the money for a new car, you'll have to decide which one you want. Not only will our dealership buy your used car, but we'll help you find a great new one, as well.

One of our staff members will take you around our lot, pointing out the various models we have available. We'll discuss your wants and needs in a car, so we can pick a few that might be a great fit. Then, we'll let you take a car or two on a test drive, so you can experience the performance and features for yourself.

After picking out your new ride, you can head on over to our finance center to start the buying process. We'll take the money you received from your old car and apply it to the new one to determine your monthly payment. We'll then reach out to local banks and lenders to get you a great auto loan.

Then, that's it! You'll fill out some paperwork, and the car will be yours to enjoy!
