Selling Your Car To a Dealer is Hassle Free
So you just got a renewal notice from DMV and they are saying that you must include a smog certificate along with your check to renew your registration. You took it to a smog test center and it won’t pass smog, you can’t get it registered and you have decided to sell it. What do you do now?
HERE ARE YOUR CHOICES:
You Can Sell It Privately: If you want to sell your car privately you need to go through the expense of repairing it because CA law requires that the seller must provide a current smog in a private sale. Smog repair can be expensive because there are many factors involved; O2 sensors, catalytic converters, fuel injectors, spark plugs, etc.
You Can Sell To A Dealer: Or, if you are thinking “Sell My Car Now”, you can call it quits on the old beater, sell it to a reputable dealer “As-Is” and save yourself the aggravation. You do not have to smog you car first when you sell to a licensed and bonded California Dealer.
If you are a woman selling your car there are unique risks involved. You certainly don’t want strangers coming to your house and knowing where you live. Also, it’s not a good idea to give your cell phone number out in a Craigslist ad because people you don’t know can have your phone number forever. Remember, we want you to be well informed and make a safe decision.
Getting paid is an issue because you definitely don’t want to accept a check of any kind and counting out cash in a parking lot somewhere can be dicey to say the least.
Also, having your liability properly released is important because you don’t want any parking tickets, toll booth or Express Lane violations coming back to you.
The best thing to do is avoid the hassle and call Dennis Buys Cars. We will pay you the highest price and beat all written offers including CARMAX. We will pay you in cash if you like and even get you home in a complimentary Uber car!
