What's The Best Way to Sell a Car in Ontario?

What's The Best Way to Sell a Car in Ontario?

The ability to sell your car to a dealership without having to buy something in return is relatively new, but it has taken off in ways we didn’t expect. Had we known there was such an appetite for a service like this, we would have done it years ago!


We think selling a car to a dealership is popular for several reasons. It is those reasons we are going to discuss today.


If you’re on the fence about where to sell your car, perhaps this post might help.


Why Dealerships Are Better Than Private

Selling your car to a dealership is better than selling privately because it’s safe, involves a lot less effort, less risk, and removes payment anxiety completely.


Private sales may get you marginally more money but that gap has narrowed significantly.


In return for a slightly lower price, you can sell your car safely, not have to prepare the ad, take lots of pictures, and handle viewings and test drives and you don’t have to worry about being scammed.


Better Than Car Buying Services

Car buying services are convenient and a largely hands-off way to sell a car. They aren’t all good though.


Try a car buying service and you may think twice about using them. Many will use any excuse to reduce the initial offer price. They can push you hard to accept less and require you to drive to their assessment center for the privilege.


While you do need to drive to our dealership, we won’t put you through any of that!


Car Buying Middle-Men & Concierges

Selling your car to a dealership is better than using a middleman or car concierge because it’s simpler.


Many services like this charge a commission on all transactions and will usually require you to buy a car as well as sell one. If you’re just interested in selling, this isn’t going to work.


Plus, the commission they charge for their services can work out quite expensive. We know a couple that charges over $500 per transaction!


You make that back when you’re buying because you get dealer discounts as part of the service but you won’t feel the benefit if you’re only selling.


Selling our Car to a Dealership

Selling your car to a dealership is better than the alternatives because we have designed it to be.


All you need to do is prepare the car for sale, get all the paperwork together, make an appointment to have the car appraised, and then leave the rest to us.


We’ll check the car, take it for a quick test drive, and then provide a value. Accept the offer and we’ll buy the car there and then and deposit the money into your bank.


No fees, no commission, no trying to reduce the offer, and no high-pressure tactics.


It’s a simple transaction between you and us with no small print or hidden fees.


We think it’s now the ultimate way to sell your old car and we wish we had offered this service years ago!
