Although Pohanka Chevrolet has made a name for itself by providing quality vehicles to drivers, we’re also a great spot to go when you need to sell your ride. So, if you’d rather deal with one of our trained professionals instead of a stranger off the street, make your way to our dealership as soon as possible. Find us at 13915 Lee Jackson Memorial Highway in Chantilly, VA.

Why Sell to a Dealership?

The most obvious reason to sell your car to us is because of the convenience. Typically, selling a used vehicle takes a lot of time. You’ll have to put an ad out in the paper or online, which might end up costing you. From there, you’ll have to wait for an undeterminable amount of time for potential customers to contact you. They might offer a lower price than you want and then you’ll have to haggle. All in all, it’s very difficult to figure out how long that whole process will take. You can skip all that and sell your vehicle directly to us in the course of just one afternoon. Your time is a precious commodity, we want you to use it wisely!

Tips

If we’ve piqued your interest and you’re ready to bring your ride into us, we’ve got a couple tips that might increase its value. First impressions are important, so be sure to clean the exterior and interior diligently. If you’ve got any dents or scratches, consider getting those fixed before you sell your ride. Although it might be a little pricey, you’ll likely make up the value later when we purchase it off you.  From there, consider whether it makes economic sense to replace any damaged components. Ask yourself if you’ll make more money out of the fixed part than it will cost you to replace. If so, it’s probably a worthwhile investment! That being said, Pohanka Chevrolet is happy to take your vehicle off your hands even if you skip these steps.

Value Your Trade Tool

One of the best reasons to sell your car to a dealership is because you can apply the money you make to a new vehicle. That means, you can sell your old ride and purchase a new one at the same place and same time. How’s that for convenience? You can see what we can offer you for your old set of wheels by using the Value Your Trade tool under the Finance tab of our website. The process only takes a minute! Once you know how much we can give you for your vehicle, look through our current inventory and find your next ride.

If you were wondering how to sell your car to a dealership, we hope this article has helped. Stop by Pohanka Chevrolet in the near future and talk to a member of our friendly team. See you soon!

Highly recommend Pohanka Chevrolet and Anuj! We had a great experience, which everyone knows is not usually what’s expected when you go to purchase a vehicle. Anuj was immediately responsive and in contact with us and met us when we pulled in (mask on and all give Covid). He had the car we were interested in ready to go and was great at going over all the features before our test drive. He entertained our indecisiveness regarding color and even brought out another car for us to see the interior. When it came time to start the paperwork it was the smoothest transaction we have ever made! And we’ve bought plenty of vehicles in our lifetimes. Anuj made sure to get us every discount we could qualify for and Chevy was offering a great incentive. We agreed upon the price on the first go- shocking I know! The entire process was great, go see Anuj!

Had a flat tire on my new Equinox. Called the service department at 7:00 pm. They made sure they had the matching tire available and invited me in that night! Sam was my service rep and she was simply fantastic!

I found a used Highlander online at Pohanka Chevrolet that appeared too good to be true and decided to make the 3 drive to see it. Elijah was our honest and knowledgeable salesman that facilitated the whole process. Financing was simple and straight forward thanks to Hunter. I would recommend this dealership for every aspect of the car buying experience. I got a beautiful vehicle for a more than fair price. Well worth the drive!

Had to get my transmission replaced and thought it was going to be a tough ordeal to go through. I was wrong. The service consultant, Art, was a huge help. Great communication through every step of the process and followed through on every promise. I've had a rough time dealing with car shops but these guys did a phenomenal job. Got my car back in great time as well. While I always try to do my own work I would definitely feel comfortable taking my car back for any major work.

My brother has been using Pohanka Chevy service for years and has convinced me to do the same for my Chevy under warranty as well as my other older owned GM vehicles. I live in Bethesda so it is a bit of a drive but their service hours, service staff and weekend times make it worth it.

We recently purchased a vehicle from Pohanka Chevrolet in Chantilly. We worked with Amad on the sales side and Hunter was the business manager. They were professional, available, answered all our questions and helped us where they could in the negotiation process. There is a certain credibility that comes a business that has lasted over 100 years, but finding the talent and people to keep that tradition going is a challenge. Both Amad and Hunter lived up to the Pohanka reputation. We will ask for them both again the next time we purchase a vehicle. Top notch.
