How Do I Consign My Car?

If you’ve got an extra car or two just laying around, you’ve probably thought about selling them. Working as a private seller isn’t easy, but what else are you going to do? It’s not like you can have a dealership sell your car for you.

Well, that may have been the case before, but not anymore. You might not want to trade in your car, but dealerships can still help take an unwanted car off your hands. Some dealerships offer consignment services to help you sell that old car.

What is Consignment and How Does it Work?

The entire selling process is on your shoulders when you’re working on your own. It can be a bit of a burden trying to value your car, market it, find sellers, and actually sell your car. All of that weight is off your shoulders if you consign it with a dealership. It’s no easy trying to sell a car, so why not enlist the help of the experts?

Consigning with a dealership means they will handle valuing, marketing, and selling your car for you. The dealership will take care of all the paperwork for the sale and have the ability to be more flexible with financing. The dealership will take a cut of the sales for the work they did, but you’ll likely be able to get a much better price for your vehicle than if you went on your own. The time and effort you save are hard to put a price on.
