If you’re excited to finally get the new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep of your dream, you’ll probably have to determine what to do with your old car. Do you give it to your 16-year-old? Sell it yourself? Trade it in at a dealership? While we can’t advise you on the first choice, our finance center pros are happy to detail and in-and-outs on how to sell your car and how to trade in a car. Once you decide which is for you, take a look at our new vehicles for sale in Williston to determine which is your next Stanley commuter.

Selling vs. Trading

Your car, truck, or SUV has served you well for years, but sadly, nothing lasts forever. Is it time to sell Ol’ Faithful? There are a few things you should know about selling a car for yourself.

If you want to sell your car privately, you need to…

  • Research the worth of your vehicle with resources like Kelley Blue Book
  • Set the price low enough to be appealing to customers, yet high enough that you make a profit
  • Wait for a buyer that actually wants to pay your asking price

After all is said and done, you might be surprised by how much time this task has taken. What if the customer wants to haggle? What if you can’t find the buyer in your local area? What if you have to expand your search beyond the Dickinson area? Selling your car is a nice idea on paper, but the reality is that it isn’t all that easy.
