McCluskey, Sell My Car!

Lately, if you been thinking “I need to sell my car,” you’re probably wondering how to get started. There are a few different routes you could explore in order to sell your car, but the trick is determining the right direction that makes the most sense for your lifestyle.

Although many people sell their vehicles privately, meaning they advertise the sale, schedule viewings for prospective purchasers, and handle all negotiations, for most of us, this isn’t a real convenient approach. Why?

Time is Money

Well, first of all, the time investment might outweigh any profit you actually make. Think about how long it takes to advertise your car, prep it for potential buyers to check out, schedule times to meet with those buyers, and then actually meet with them, answer all of their questions, address their concerns, and maybe even take the car for a test drive. If you’re a full-time working professional, a full-time parent, student, or any combination of the three, you simply don’t have the time to sell your car privately.

Make Your Sale Count at McCluskey Chevy

So, why not skip the hassle and go straight to your trusted dealership, like McCluskey Chevrolet? Let the sales team there handle the ins and outs of the car sale. After all, they are the experts and, what’s more, if you sell to a dealership like McCluskey, you’re already working with a motivated buyer.

Why would a dealership be considered a motivated buyer? Simply because the sales team needs a diverse inventory of used vehicles in order to keep competitive and stay ahead of the curve. McCluskey Chevy is no different, and boasts an extensive inventory of used and pre-owned vehicles. In order to back up that brag, the team needs a steady source of used vehicles coming into the dealership on a regular basis.

And that’s where you come in. Bring your vehicle down to McCluskey Chevy and let the team check it out and make you an offer. That offer will be based on the condition of your car, how well it’s been maintained, and what the team will need to do, if anything, to repair or remediate any issues in order to make it sale-ready.

Don’t stress about the state of your car. The team at McCluskey knows that used means used, and fully expects to see some wear and tear, dings, dents, even rust. As long as your vehicle is still in good working condition and will be a reliable ride for someone else, you’ll be presented with an offer.

Try a Trade-In

Not entirely happy with the offer? Thought you might be able to get a few extra bucks for it? Well, don’t forget, the associates and technicians at McCluskey are doing all the time-consuming legwork you wanted to avoid, and time is money. The good news though is that you have some recourse if the offer falls short of your expectations.

Why not trade it in for something from the McCluskey inventory? Putting your old car towards a new or new-to-you vehicle purchase is a great way to maximize the return on your current vehicle.

No matter which option you go for, a straight sale or a trade-in, you’re in good hands at McCluskey Chevy. Call or just come over today and let the sales staff take a look at your vehicle and help you determine your next direction.
