Why You Should Sell Your Car to Sewell Cadillac of Midland

Read how to sell your car to a dealership like Sewell Cadillac of Midland below:

  • Find the value of your car. Do some online research with websites like, Edmunds, or Kelley Blue Book to find the approximate value of your vehicle. This will help you see what your vehicle is worth and help you negotiate later on. 
  • Bring your vehicle to our Midland dealership. You can call in advance and make an appointment or walk-in the same day!
  • Have your vehicle appraised by our staff. We’ll look over your vehicle to see what condition it’s in, what features it has, and how it performs. To increase the value of your vehicle, make sure it’s clean and replace small things like floor mats or windshield wipers. 
  • Negotiate or accept our trade-in offer. After we’ve inspected your vehicle, we’ll make you an offer. You can apply that amount to your new vehicle purchase if you’d like. You can also negotiate the price with our team or decline the offer.

How to Sell Your Car in Texas Privately?

You can also choose to sell your car privately in Texas as opposed to a dealership. In order to do this though, you’ll have to follow a set of steps and adhere to Texas DMV regulations. Keep in mind that when you sell your car privately in Texas, you may have to wait longer to sell your car as you field through potential buyers. 

  • Clean and prepare your vehicle. Clean your vehicle to the best of your ability, or have it professionally cleaned. This will make your car more appealing to a buyer.
  • Take photos of the exterior and interior of your car. Take a variety of photos from different angles to show buyers what they’re getting.
  • Post an ad. Most drivers post vehicle ads online, but you can also post an ad in the newspaper or put a sign on your lawn or in your vehicle. When you post the ad, make sure to include as much information about your vehicle as possible. 
  • Field potential buyers. Go over potential buyers and their offers. You may also have to take a test drive with them. Keep in mind that you may have to wait a few months before you’ll find the right buyer. 
  • Document your vehicle’s history. Make sure to write out your vehicle’s history, including maintenance, part changes, and if it’s been involved in an accident. 
  • Have your car inspected by a mechanic. Your buyer may want to have the car inspected by their own mechanic, but you should have yours do the same for extra security. That way, you know exactly what the buyer is responsible for when they take ownership of the vehicle. 
  • Complete the buyer’s application for the title. Once you’ve found a buyer, you then need to get the vehicle’s title in order and sign the buyer’s application
  • Remove the plates and registration sticker. The plates and registration sticker for the vehicle stay with you. The new owner will need to acquire temporary plates and registration. 
  • Report the sale to the state. Once the car has been sold, you’ll need to report the sale to the state by filing a Motor Vehicle Transfer Notification form. This is important as it frees you of any responsibility for the vehicle in the future. You have thirty days from the date of sale to report to the state of Texas. 

As you can see, there are a lot of steps that come with selling your car in Texas. Save time and avoid complicated paperwork by selling your vehicle to Sewell Cadillac of Midland!
