AVOID The 7 Dangers Of Selling Your Used Car Privately
1) Unknown Strangers Coming to Your House or Business
Avoid unkown and unpredictable strangers coming to your house or place of business. Maintain your privacy and most of all, the safety of your home and family. We are LA's number one car buyer, established since 1993, not some "johnny-come-lately" or fly-by-night car buyer.

2) Giving Out Personal Information
Putting a "For Sale" sign on your car or running a classified ad puts your phone number and home address for anybody to view. Again, maintain your privacy and most of all, the safety of your home and family. In order for someone to contact you, you'll have to give out your phone number. These days, most everyone uses a cell phone. If you get a call from a blocked number, the caller already knows a lot more about you than you do about him. Remember, once someone has called your cell phone from their cell phone, they have your number forever and people tend to misdial or call at all hours. Giving out your home address just isn't a good idea for several reasons. What if something goes wrong with the transaction? Nobody wants a visit from an irate buyer. Protect your home and your family, call us now. We make selling your used car easy, safe and fast.
3) Release Of Liability
It's bad enough having an unpredictable stranger driving your car for a test drive, but what happens after you get paid and hand over the signed and released title? If the buyer doesnt go to the DMV right away and transfer the title in their name and release you from liability, they could be driving around on your registration, collecting parking tickest, red light camera violations and who knows what else exposing you to vehicle liablity that could cost you your house! Play it safe. Avoid this major danger of selling your car privately, and call us now. When you call, we make an appoinment to see your car at your convenience, either your home or business, whichever is best for you. When we buy your car, all liability is released right away. As a licensed and bonded auto dealer with our own in-house DMV department, we handle all DMV paperwork and we have proper forms to complete transfer and release your liability in your car.
4) The Dangers of Driving Around Town Shopping Your Vehicle
Why go through all the hassle and expense of driving all over town, going from car dealer to car dealer, trying to get the best price for your car? Save precious time and money and call us now. It's simple - you tell us about your car, the more details you give, the better the quote you will get. We set an appointment to come to you, at your convenience. When we see the car, we'll finalize the offer and arrange to have the car picked up right then or the same day. That's another benefit of selling your used car, truck or SUV to us, because you save money on gas and your precious time not having to drive all around town trying to get your best offer. And you don't risk damaging your car in an accident, making your car unsellable!
5) Getting Paid Safely
There are so many ways to get paid for your car when you sell it privately and all can have difficulties. A common scam is payment with an official looking, bogus cashier's check. You take it as payment, deposit it in to your account and in about two weeks when your car is long gone it bounces and your bank charges your account. The most obvious is cash but this method is not always problem free. Where do you conduct this cash transaction with an unpredictable stranger? We have already discussed the problems with your home. At a public place? Fine, but you don't know who might follow you home with this new cash in your pocket. A personal check is out of the question and you're probably not set up to accept credit cards or ATM. Even PayPal has it's problems, the buyer could file a charge back and PayPal almost always sides with the buyer.
6) Rapid Depreciation of Your Car's Value
Kelley Blue Book adjusts used car prices every seven days. Over 95% of all used vehicles go down during the adjusted value. Selling a used car privately can easily take 30 to 60 days. This unforeseen depreciation is constantly overlooked by consumers selling a used car, truck, van or SUV. Two months could knock a couple thousand dollars off the price of your used car. Why wait? Call us now and get the most cash for your car today.
7) Prospective Buyer is Car Thief
This one is relatively rare but still happens enough to be aware of. If you have a high value auto, and that can mean more than a luxury or classic car, then your prospective buyer could very well be a professional car thief. Believe it or not, the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Dodge Caravan top the list of most stolen cars in the US. If you have a late model car in good condition, why take the risk? Call us now and get the peace of mind knowing LA's oldest and largest car buyer pay you the higest price for your late model, low mileage car. We have all kinds of customers, so we basiclly buy anything that rolls. Call us and tell us what you have, and get cash for cars TODAY!
