In most cases, you can sell your leased car. We’ll appraise the vehicle, then contact the leasing company for a payoff quote and process any equity you might have. Please note that some leasing companies will not allow you to sell the car prior to the expiration of the lease.
What if I owe more on my car than the amount of your appraisal offer?
If your pay-off 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 a new car. If not, we’ll calculate the difference between your pay-off and our offer to you.
What if I have a lien on my car?
We will need to contact your lien holder during business hours to get a 10-day payoff. To pay off the lien, we will need your lien holder’s name and phone number, the name(s) on the account, and your lien holder’s account number and social security number. If a previously paid-off lien is listed on the title, you’ll need both the title and the lien release from the lien holder before we can purchase your car.

If you would like to sell a car on behalf of a company, please see an Appraiser for the requirements needed.
