Sell Your Vehicle with Us!

Selling your vehicle in Elizabeth City? Make sure to make the right decision when selling your vehicle. Go to a dealer you can trust.

Selling your car can be a scary proposition. First you have to make sure it is in tip top shape, then you have to drive to the dealer, haggle with a price that is fair for your vehicle, and then there is the actual selling of your vehicle. After that, what do you do? Use the money to buy a new vehicle, use the money for something else, or maybe you save the money for the future. Regardless of how you plan on using the money, you have to make the steps to selling your vehicle first. But are you making the right decision?

There are many ways to go about selling your vehicle, but the best way to do it is through your local Chevrolet dealership. We accept vehicles of all makes and models. If you are looking to sell and don’t know where to start, Performance Chevrolet has your back. We have been a trusted dealer for many years and our sales department is here to help you.

But over the past few years, other options for selling your vehicle have come to the surface. Can they be trusted?

Carvana/Carmax vs. Performance Chevrolet

A new popular way to sell your vehicle is by using new online car dealers. These dealers offer you the convenience of buying and selling your vehicle from your home. But how do you know who you are working with? Will they actually be giving you the best deal? What extra fees are included in this process? How will I know I am not getting ripped off? Will they have my best interest in mind?

Why take the risk on any of those thoughts when you can come to Performance Chevrolet where you know you will be treated right? Our goal is to satisfy you, our customer, and to make sure you are not being taken advantage of. We even have some special perks if you do decide to work with us when selling your vehicle.

Your Vehicle – and the documents that go with it

You’ll need to bring a few things with you to make sure the sale of your vehicle goes smoothly.

A Clean Car

You don’t need to get it detailed – we’ve got one of the best teams of detailers in Elizabeth City right here at Performance Chevrolet. They’ll go through the car before it moves along to the pre-owned market. Still, you want to make sure you have any personal belongings out (don’t forget to check the trunk) and it doesn’t hurt to at least tidy up and toss away loose trash. But wiping out the air vents? We got that.

Service Records

Beyond the vehicle history report, we love to see documentation of regular preventative maintenance, as well as major repairs that you’ve had to take care of over the years.

Vehicle Title and Registration

We’ll need these papers to take ownership of your vehicle. We trust you, but we still have to make sure that the vehicle is yours to sell, free and clear.

Loan information and Pay-Off Amount

Sometimes you don’t want to wait until your current vehicle is paid off – don’t worry, we can work with you on that. If you are still paying a loan, the company that owns the vehicle will want to get paid, and we’ll get the vehicle title from them.

The good news is that our team here at Performance Chevrolet will take care of that transfer work, they’re pros at it. It’s a standard part of the buying process!

What Should I do When I Have Sold My Vehicle?

After your vehicle has been sold, take a look at our new and used vehicle lineup. Let’s get you into a new (or new to you) vehicle that you have been dreaming about. But, if that is the case, make sure you have everything you will need when heading to our dealership! You’ll want to run down this checklist before heading out the door. Make sure you have everything complete and together – it’ll help the buying process to move along that much faster.

Your Driver’s License

Common sense, and really, who leaves home without it? We’ll need to make sure you are a properly licensed driver, so make sure your license is not expired.

Form of Payment

You can pay by check, by cash, by loan, and, in some cases, even by credit card. While our expert finance team at Performance Chevrolet will work to find you the best possible loan, you’re still likely going to need a down payment. Even if you don’t need it immediately, a down payment today means you’ll pay less interest tomorrow – it’s always a great idea to put something forward.

Recent Pay Stubs

The banks and creditors we work with want to know that you are currently employed, and can afford the payments of the loan they’re extending. The last few weeks’ paycheck stubs or direct deposit receipts help us to show them that you are worthy of getting that loan.

Proof of Insurance

We’ll take care of the leg work and get in touch with your insurance company to update them on the new vehicle details so you’re insured the minute you drive off the lot.

Credit Score and History

This helps to dictate the loan terms we can get for you. In the old days, it was a bit of a process to go through – today, almost every credit card company, bank, or credit union offers documentation of your current and recent credit scores. Bring that along with you and we can help you find better loans, faster.

Other Things

Odds and ends can go a long way to your car purchase experience. These are things that certainly will be helpful for you to bring along, and could end up saving you in the long run.

A List of References

Some lenders want to be able to call and check with business or personal references in addition to pulling credit scores and reports.

Pre-Approved Vehicle Loans

Even though we have some great connections with banks and other finance sources here at Performance Chevrolet, there’s always the possibility that your credit union, credit card company or bank can provide a better APR or help you get approved for a bigger loan. By getting pre-approved, you have something in your pocket already.

Rebate Eligibility Support

Many carmakers, Chevrolet included, offer a variety of unique discounts. From military service discounts to recent college graduate rebates, to customer loyalty discounts, there are plenty on offer. You’ll need the documents and proof to back it up though, so be aware of the individual requirements for each rebate.

When you come to make your purchase final, having all of these things on hand helps to make sure you don’t spend any more time at the dealership than you need to – not that we don’t like seeing your smiling face here, we just know you’ve got other things to do. They also help to keep you from making additional trips or missing out on potential savings.
