Options for Selling Your Car

There are a couple options when considering selling your car depending on your time-frame.

Option 1: Sell to Expat Auto

THE WAY SELLING YOUR CAR SHOULD BE

  • Avoid the Hassle
    Forget about wasting time advertising your car, not to mention the tire-kickers and window-shoppers.   Bring your car to Expat Auto and we’ll give you a fair price for your car. We’ll even take care of paying off your loan, so you can wipe your hands clean of your vehicle.
  • Fast payment
    After we inspect your car at the dealership, we’ll issue an offer for your car. Appraisals are free of charge, and if you decide to take our offer, we’ll get you the cash while you wait.
  • No strings attached
    Some dealers give lowball offers if you aren’t willing to trade your car in towards a new vehicle. We’re proud to be different from the other guys, in that regardless of your intentions to upgrade your car, your car is always worth the same.

 

You can get started by either

  1. filling out the form below so we can make an initial assessment (Please keep in mind that the final offer will be dependent on inspection at our office)  or
  2. Come into our office to get an appraisal.

* If we don’t want to buy it, or don’t have the buying power at the time, you could also leave it with us on a very short term basis and we can reach out to our dealer network to try and get you the best wholesale price we can find for you.

Option 2: Use Our Consignment Sale Service

If you have a little more time to work with, under most circumstances we can get you more for your car using our consignment sale service, which we can provide for you whether you will be in the country or you will be leaving.  Most of our clients using this service have left the country already.  We will do a consignment agreement and after the sale we will provide you with a full report and transfer the funds to your local or international account.  See more details here about our consignment service here

Should you decline to have the vehicle purchased at your first appointment, the offer will be valid for 7 days from the day of the evaluation.  Should this 7-day window expire before the car is purchased, Shift will need to re-quote and re-inspect the vehicle before purchase

We review current market conditions as well as your car’s specific year, make, model, sub-model, mileage, and vehicle history (if any). We examine your car’s condition inside and out for major defects like frame or flood damage. We also test drive your car and check to see if there are any obvious issues with power, braking, tire noise, suspension noises, amongst other things. If repairs are needed, we may adjust our offer accordingly. In regards to cleanliness, the long-term maintenance and care of your car is what’s most important in determining our appraisal offer.
