Frequently Asked Questions About Selling a Car Online

Nothing! With no fees, commissions, or hidden charges - users are able to access our massive used car database and advertise their cars for free!

How long does it take to sell a car?

Selling a car privately can take varying amounts of time depending on factors such as the demand for the car, its condition, the asking price, and the effectiveness of marketing efforts. Factors like competitive pricing, popular models, effective advertising, and a well-maintained vehicle can help sell the car faster. However, there is no set timeline, and it could take anywhere from a few days to several months to find a buyer. Being patient, persistent, and realistic in pricing and marketing strategies will improve the chances of a successful sale.

Having an instant cash offer can speed up the process, and in some cases, you might find a buyer quickly. However, it still depends on factors like the demand for your car, its condition, and how well you present it.

Can I sell a car without title in my name?

Selling a car without a title in your name can be complicated and potentially problematic. It is generally advisable to have the title transferred into your name before proceeding with the sale. This ensures legal ownership and provides the necessary documentation for a smooth transaction. To obtain a clear title, you will likely need to follow the processes outlined by your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or relevant agency to transfer the title into your name. Familiarize yourself with the specific laws and regulations in your jurisdiction regarding vehicle sales and title transfers. Consulting with legal professionals or contacting the local DMV will help you understand the requirements and obligations involved in selling a car with a valid title, protecting both you and the buyer in the process.

Can I sell my car with a loan?

Yes, you can sell your car even if it has an outstanding loan. However, there are two important things to keep in mind:

First, you need to check how much you still owe on the car loan compared to what the car is worth. If you owe more on your car loan than what you can get from selling your car, you'll have to cover the difference. It's a good idea to check your car's value before selling, so you can plan how to handle any extra amount you owe. You might use your savings, ask family for help, or consider a personal loan. If you can sell the car for more than you owe, it's a smoother process. You can sell the car, pay off your lender on the same day, and get the vehicle title released.

Second, your lender will have specific rules you must follow to complete the sale, so it's essential to know and adhere to them.

How can I find out the amount needed to pay off my vehicle?

Typically, you can contact the financing company to ascertain the payoff amount for the car. In certain instances, it may be necessary to reach out to the original dealership where the car was purchased for this information.

What to do with license plate after selling car?

After selling your car, it is important to remove the license plates from the vehicle. Check the regulations in your area to determine whether you need to return the plates to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or dispose of them in a specific manner. If you plan to replace the sold vehicle, you can transfer the license plates to the new car. Otherwise, you may need to obtain new plates from the DMV. Ensuring compliance with local regulations regarding license plate disposal and transfer will help you complete the process smoothly.

How can I optimize the sale of my car?
