Dick Hannah Dealerships in Washington state discusses whether it's worthwhile to sell a car to a dealership in a recent post on its blog.
Selling a car to a dealership is generally a lot easier and faster than selling a vehicle through classified ads or online, but many drivers only consider selling to a dealership if they plan to buy another vehicle from the same location, the posting said.
The posting said dealerships buy cars even if a driver isn't planning to purchase a vehicle from that dealership.
Selling directly to a dealership save time and prevents awkward meetings or dealing with quirky buyers. A dealership also has paperwork ready to sign, as they've dealt with lots of car transactions before. On top of that, a dealership has money on hand so you won't have to wait to get paid, the posting said.
