Can I sell my car to Patrick Cars without buying a car?
Yes, and our offer will be the same whether you're buying from us or not.

Do I need an appointment to get an offer on my car?
Due to the pandemic, it is recommended to make an appointment to sell your car or get an offer. We suggest starting with submitting a "trade-in" inquiry to get started and a member of the Patrick Direct team will reach out. You can also get started by clicking here.

What can I expect during my appointment?
•Our low-touch in-store appraisal and buying process allows us to make an offer without sitting in your vehicle or touching your car's most frequently used areas.
•You'll observe your car's appraisal - maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet from your appraiser - and will be asked to assist with turning your car on or off, and opening or closing doors, windows, and trunk spaces.
•Offers may be contingent on verifying a car's mechanical condition with a test drive and/or a review of the cosmetic condition of the vehicle, but the test drive and verification only occur if you choose to sell.
•If you decide to sell, we'll cut you a check. You can also take up to 7 days to compare your options.
•If you're trading in, you can apply any positive equity from your current car to the down payment on your next car.

How do you determine my offer?
We review current market conditions as well as your car's specific year, make, model, mileage, and vehicle history report. We examine your car's condition inside and out for major defects like frame or flood damage. We also test drive your car and check to see if the brakes and turn signals are working (among other things). If repairs are needed, we may adjust our offer accordingly. In regard to cleanliness, the long-term maintenance and care of your car is what's most important in determining our appraisal offer.

What do I need to sell my car?
Requirements can vary from state to state, but there are a few items you'll need no matter where you are:

•Your car's title or payoff information. All titleholders should be present.
•Valid and current registrations
•Valid state-issued photo ID for all title holders.
•All keys and remotes

Please note that you don't need these things to get an offer for your car, but if you think you plan to sell when you get your offer, you should come prepared with these items.


What if I still owe money on my car?
If your payoff amount is more than the offer for your car, the difference is called "negative equity." In some cases, the negative equity can be included in your financing when you buy at any Patrickcars.com location. If not, we'll calculate the difference between your pay-off and our offer to you and you can pay us directly. We accept cashier's checks, certified checks, certified funds, cash, and debit cards. Our written offers are good for seven days, giving you time to get any necessary funds to settle your transaction.

How will we pay you for your car?
If you come in with everything required to sell your car you will receive a check within 5 to 10 business days.

Can I sell a car on behalf of a company?
If you are part of a company that owns or leases vehicle for employees, please contact us for the requirements needed click here to submit an inquiry or call 888-819-6958.
