Will I get paid the same day?

Yes! A registered corporate check will be issued to you.

My dealer offered me a "trade-in" figure...is it worth my time?

No! Trade-ins are “Always the Lowest Price”. Inflating the value of your trade-in is based upon how much the car dealer can overcharge for their car. It's an old retail strategy that dealers have used for years. It confuses the buyer. Dealers obtain "Off Lease" cars from manufacturers for below market prices. They DO NOT and WILL NOT pay you top dollar. 1-800-Car-Cash won’t confuse you. We will pay you the Highest Possible Price on-the-Spot!"

Does 1-800-Car-Cash make house calls?

Please call us at 1-800-Car-Cash for details and information.

Is a "Private Party" sale more profitable?

No! Bargain hunters and tire kickers without cash only look for giveaway deals. A qualified buyer will lease or finance a used/new car at very low or 0% interest rates. -or-

  • How about the possibility of not getting paid after you made a deal with that "nice" stranger.
  • Bad or fraudulent checks?
  • The repairs you need to make after the sale or worse?
  • Fraudulent sales tax reporting or an odometer rollback that you will be blamed for!
  • You have NO idea with who or “what” you will be dealing with!
  • Why take a chance? Come to 1-800-Car-Cash.

What about Websites, Internet Sales and Online Outlets?

They sell advertising, classified ads, books and subscriptions. They ‘will’ sell your personal information to others. That’s how they make money. They will NOT buy your vehicle for any price. 1-800-Car-Cash buys and pays you instantly on the spot.
