Trade-in isn’t the only way to quickly change vehicles
Most people think the only way to quickly change cars is with a dealer trade-in, but this simply isn’t the case. Sell My Car will not only buy your car, but our connection to Manheim means you can also buy a different car at auction on the same day.
If you visit one of the Manheim Locations that also have a Sell My Car office on site you’ll easily be able to sell your car and bid on a different vehicle on auction day. There are two ways to go about this:
1 – Buy a car at auction and then sell your car
You can start by getting an online estimate for your car to get an idea of what your current car might be worth. Keep in mind that this is a guide only, as we need to inspect your car in person before we can make an official offer.
Once you’ve done this you can head to the auction and see if there are any vehicles that interest you and are in your price range. If there are you can make a bid and see how you go. If you happen to buy a vehicle, Manheim staff will be able to direct you to the Sell My Car office where you can get an official offer on your car and sell it on the spot if you’re happy with the price. The risk involved here is that unless you get an in-person valuation before going to the auction you’ll be bidding without knowing the exact price you’ll receive for your current car. But, you might just find the exact car you’ve been looking for at auction.
2 – Sell your car and then buy another one at auction
The other approach to selling and buying on the same day is to sell your vehicle to Sell My Car before heading to the auction. This approach has the benefit of knowing exactly how much you are getting for your current vehicle before you place a bid on a new vehicle. There is one risk to keep in mind though: if you sell your current car and don’t find exactly what you want at the auction (or are outbid) you may be left without a car.
Whichever option you choose to go with, you can rest assured knowing the process is straightforward and it’s possible to buy and sell vehicles on the same day.
