Sell Your Car in Newport News, VA

Ready to sell us your current vehicle? Our car-selling process is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Receive your online quote: Our online trade calculator uses data from Kelley Blue Book to provide you with an estimate of your car’s current market value in just minutes. You’ll need to input basic information, such as your vehicle’s make and model, mileage, and an accurate description of its condition. This estimate will give you a good idea of your car’s worth ahead of its appraisal at our dealership.
  2. Stop by for an in-person appraisal: Head to our Newport News, Virginia, location as soon as you’re ready to receive an in-person estimate. Reaching out to us ahead of time to schedule an appointment is encouraged, but not required. Make sure you have everything you need to sell your car, including all sets of keys and important paperwork, such as your registration, driver’s license, and owners manual. Our appraisal experts will thoroughly examine your vehicle, test it, and provide a competitive offer.
  3. Get your offer: After our appraisal experts finish inspecting and testing your vehicle, you’ll receive a competitive offer. If you choose, you can walk away with cash. You can also use the offer as credit toward a down payment on a vehicle on our lot. Our financing team will assist in securing you the best payment plan for your financial situation.

Why Should I Sell My Car at Checkered Flag CJDR?

Still not convinced? Take a look at why so many folks in the Newport News area choose us when it’s time to sell their vehicles:

  • Fair and competitive offers: You won’t need to worry about being lowballed or misdirected. Our transparent process guarantees that the price you see is the price you’ll get without any of the back-and-forths typically associated with selling a car. You’ll receive a professional appraisal and are free to decide whether you want to accept our offer.
  • Receive cash or trade-in value: You have the flexibility to choose between a cash offer or trade-in value toward a new car. No need to wait for a check to clear — you can leave our dealership with payment in hand.
  • Quick turnarounds: Bring your car to us, and you’ll receive an offer the same day — no gimmicks or loopholes. Our goal is to serve our customers as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
  • No obligations: If you’re just looking for a quick way to get cash for a car you no longer need, we’re happy to be of service, and we won’t pressure you into opting for trade-in credit instead of the cash offer.
  • Hassle-free process: We take the stress out of selling. Our team will handle the paperwork and administrative details so you can focus on getting the best deal possible for your vehicle.
  • Supporting local business: When you do business with Checkered Flag CJDR, you’re reinvesting in the local community. We’re proud to serve our customers in Newport News and the surrounding areas to the best of our ability.
  • Flexible trade-ins: While the new vehicles at our dealership consist of the latest Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram models, we don’t discriminate when it comes to used cars. From Honda to Ford to Volkswagen, we’ll gladly buy a wide range of makes and models to add to our used inventory, regardless of model year, body style, or mileage.
  • Peace of mind: Negotiating a private sale with a stranger is not only time-consuming, but it also requires you to have faith in a buyer you likely have never previously met. If you aren’t comfortable meeting and negotiating with a stranger for a purchase as significant as a vehicle, selling to us is a safe alternative.

What Do I Need To Know Before Selling My Car at Checkered Flag CJDR?

Before you begin the selling process, you should get an idea of your car’s approximate value. Here are a few key factors that may affect the value of your trade-in:

  • Make and model.
  • Mileage.
  • Overall condition.
  • Body style.
  • Accident history.
  • Number of owners.
  • Current supply and demand.

To create a timely and hassle-free experience, there are a few things you should keep in mind before selling us your car. If you’re still making payments on your current vehicle, make sure you bring us your loan information in addition to the rest of your car’s important paperwork. Additionally, if you have the luxury of selling without a strict timeline, it could be wise to consider the time of year when selling your car. Resale value is often the highest before a new model year debuts and during the spring and summer seasons.

Keep in mind, market conditions rapidly change on a regular basis. Our team won’t pressure you to sell if you aren’t ready, but waiting longer may result in a lower offer as your car’s value depreciates. If you’re looking to sell, it’s typically better to do so in the near future.
