We Buy Used Cars

If you’re interested in a new vehicle, you have several options on dealing with your current one. You can give it to a friend or family member, donate it, or sell it to an interested buyer. The last option will certainly help when it comes times to buy a new car, as the money can go toward that purchase.

However, rather than selling the car yourself, it’s easier to go through a dealership. At BMW of Stratham, we’ll buy your used car from the Stratham, Portsmouth, or Exeter areas. Learn all about the process below, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Bring your vehicle to our Stratham location and receive a free written Appraisal and Commitment to Purchase-good for three days.

Selling Your Car to a Dealership

There are many reasons why it’s better to sell your vehicle to a dealership. If you go at it alone, you’ll usually make a listing online and wait for someone to express interest, which can sometimes take weeks or months, depending on the vehicle’s demand.

You’ll need to make sure the car constantly stays clean, as potential buyers can call to see it at a moment’s notice. Plus, you must make yourself available to answer any questions and have the person take it for a test drive. Furthermore, if someone is ready to buy the automobile, you’ll have to go to the DMV yourself to process the paperwork and complete the state inspection.

Luckily, if you sell your car to a dealership, you won’t need to do any of that. After we buy your vehicle, we’ll do all the hard work, so you can simply focus on what car you’ll be buying next.

The Selling Process

Before you bring your used car to our dealership, there are some things you’ll want to take care of beforehand. For instance, you’ll want to get an idea of how much your automobile is actually worth. We have a trade-in tool right on our website for your convenience. Simply enter in some information about your car, and it’ll estimate how much money you could get to put toward a new ride.

There are ways to raise the value of your automobile. First, you’ll want to fix what you can, which includes broken taillights, oil leaks, or touching up a small scratch with some paint. You’ll also want to make sure that the car is nice and clean, which makes it look well-maintained and will sell more to potential buyers.

When you bring it to the dealership, we’ll inspect it and give you an estimate. You can take the money or put it toward a new vehicle. Then, you just sign some papers, and that’s it. You’ve now sold us your used car.

Buying a New Car

Once that’s taken care of, you can buy a new vehicle, if you wish. One of our staff members will be happy to show you around our lot, pointing out various models and their features. Then, you’ll get to take one out for a test drive to see if it’s right for you.

If it is, then visit our finance center to get started on the buying process. You can use the money you got from your old ride to put toward this new one. This would be beneficial, as the more money you put down initially, the less you’ll have to pay each month.

Our team will then reach out to banks and lenders in the area that we often work with. This is so you can get a great auto loan with terms that work for you.
