Selling a Car in Illinois

Many Smithton drivers often ask us for tips for selling a car in Illinois to a dealership, hoping to maximize their selling experience. By following a few simple tips, you’ll be ready to sell your car for a great price! Here’s what you should do before selling your car at our dealership or anywhere else:

  • Clean Your Vehicle: Clean your vehicle to the best of your abilities. It could be worthwhile to get it detailed at a trusted detailing center near Trenton. Cleaning your vehicle is an excellent way to increase its value.
  • List the Benefits: If your vehicle has a good maintenance history or rare features, listing these benefits helps boost its value.
  • Have the Title: Having the vehicle’s title helps ensure the selling process runs smoothly. Having the title typically means you have full ownership of the vehicle, which also makes it easier to sell your vehicle.
  • Research Trade-In Values: Understanding the market and your vehicle’s trade-in value is essential. Using tools like our trade-in calculator can help you get a fair assessment of your vehicle’s worth.
