    you need to go after the sale! Have a car to sell? Tell us about it!

    The reality is that you’d probably get the most out of you car by selling it privately. However, selling a car on your own takes time and effort, and can also be unpredictable and stressful. Posting ads, answering phone calls, test drives, waiting around for a buyer to come up with a payment or arrange a loan – who has time for all that?
    Depending on the condition of your vehicle, you also may need to do some repairs in order to sell it for a decent price. And if something goes wrong after the sale, you may have an unhappy buyer to deal with. At Auto City, there is none of that! You still get a fair and reasonable value for your trade without the hassles and risks of selling it yourself. We’ll take your car AS IS and take care of all the paperwork. Do you have a car to trade in or sell? Trade it in to Auto City!

    You do not have to. We handle all the paperwork!

    Yes, you can. If you want to sell your car and it is not paid off, we will pay you the agreed price less the outstanding balance on the vehicle, which we will send to your lender. If there is negative equity in the car (the value of the car is less than the loan balance), then the difference between the agreed-upon price and the outstanding loan balance has to be paid to Auto City at the time of sale. If you want to trade in a vehicle that is not paid off, the process is similar. We will apply the agreed-upon trade-in value towards your new vehicle less the outstanding balance of your loan. If there is negative equity, it may be rolled into a new loan (contingent on lender
    approval) or paid to Auto City.

    Our offers are very aggressive and competitive, so if you have an appraisal from a different dealership or a car buying service, chances are good that we can beat it! Please tell us about your vehicle and the offer to beat and we will do our best to beat it.

    There is no problem if you are missing your title and/or registration as long as your vehicle is registered and titled in California. However, for out-of-state cars, the title is required.

    If you want to sell your car and you have negative equity in it (the value of the car is less than the loan balance), then the difference between the agreed-upon price and the outstanding loan balance has to be paid to Auto City at the time of sale. We will then pay off the lender on your behalf. If you want to trade in a vehicle with negative equity, it may be rolled into a new loan (contingent on lender approval) or paid to Auto City.

    Please bring the following: Your driver’s license or valid ID, title and/or registration if available, keys, and any service records available. If the vehicle is not paid off, please have your lender’s information and your pay off amount handy as well.

    There is no need to smog your vehicle if you are planing to trade it in or sell it to Auto City.

    We keep the best vehicles to recondition and sell from our lot and wholesale the rest. In fact, one of the major sources of our inventory are the cars we buy from the general public. Please check our inventory page to see our current selection.
