Myth #1: Car dealerships will only buy my used car if I am purchasing a vehicle from that dealership.
At Volkswagen of South Atlanta, you do not have to purchase a car from us in order to sell your used car. Our main objective at Volkswagen of South Atlanta is to provide our customers with the information they need to identify the vehicle that suits them best. Keeping this in mind, ensures our customers have a positive sales experience that keeps them coming back for their new vehicle, service, and more. Our consultants are not pushy sales people that try to get you to buy when you come to sell. Of course, if you are interested in trading-in your car or you discover that trading-in your car makes more since for you versus only selling us your used car, we will be more than happy to assist you with the process.
Myth #2: Car dealerships do not give you good value for a used car.
Some people choose to sell their cars privately versus selling to a car dealership because they believe they will receive greater value for their vehicle. However, with the introduction of consumer friendly car pricing services, sellers are able to feel confident that they are getting the best price for their car no matter who they sale their car to. At Volkswagen of South Atlanta, we take the guessing out of the car appraisal process. We use multiple pricing services to provide a quote at “book value.” We pay top dollar for used cars!
Myth #3: Selling a used car to a private owner is easier than selling it to a car dealership.
There are some benefits that make selling your car to a dealership easier than selling your car to a private owner that you may be interested in knowing.
Volkswagen of South Atlanta provides sellers a safe environment to sell their used car. Selling your car to a private owner leaves you vulnerable. More than likely you attracted potential buyers through the classifieds or an online advertisement, so you know very little about the potential buyer before they visit your home to view your car. If you do decide to sell your car to a private buyer, please take safety precautions such as meeting in a public setting and scheduling your appointment during the daytime hours.
You can save money on advertising when you sell your car to a car dealership versus selling your car to a private owner.
You can sell your used car the same day you visit us with no appointment necessary. Selling your car privately can take quite a bit of time. Not to mention, some cars don't fare well during certain times of year. We will buy your used car no matter the time of year.
It is your responsibility to prepare all paperwork that will protect you from future liability when selling your used car to a private owner. At Volkswagen of South Atlanta, we make certain we obtain all necessary paperwork that protects all parties involved.
