Seller FAQ


If you have a vehicle to sell, you’ve traditionally had two choices: (1) sell to a dealer, which can be convenient but generally leads to a low price; or (2) sell it yourself, which can generate a higher price than trading-in but is a time-consuming hassle that involves dealing with strangers. At CarLotz, you get the best of both worlds: more money for your vehicle than trade-in without the hassle of selling it yourself. Our sellers make more than wholesale trade-in value, and we do all the work.
Just bring us your vehicle, and we’ll help you pick the selling price. We inspect, detail, and photograph your vehicle so it looks its best for potential buyers. We then list it for sale on our website and major vehicle buying websites like AutoTrader, Cars.com, and CarGurus. In addition, we stage it for sale at our facility, which are located in high-traffic retail areas. We manage buyer inquiries 24×7, conduct test drives, collect payment safely from the buyer when we sell it, and do all the DMV paperwork. Once your vehicle sells, we cut you a check.
Every situation is different, as pricing, condition, and supply of similar vehicles all impact the sales process, but the typical CarLotz vehicle sells in about 30 days. We promote all vehicles aggressively nationwide, follow up on buyer questions 24×7, and offer easy financing options, ensuring we sell your vehicle as quickly as possible.
We are experts at pricing vehicles. We’ll price based on real-time sales listings for similar vehicles, auction sales data, and trusted vehicle pricing sources like NADA and KBB.
Of course! Many of our sellers’ lease or have outstanding loans on their vehicles, which is one of the reasons they are drawn to us. We obtain more value for the vehicle to pay off loans or leases and hopefully a little leftover. Once we sell your vehicle, we will pay the lease or lien off directly and write you a check for any difference.
Yes, we ask that you leave your vehicle with us because it meaningfully increases your chances of a successful sale. Our online marketing efforts will drive nationwide exposure for your vehicle, but our retail locations are in high traffic areas that receive a significant number of local walk-in customers. Having your vehicle available for sale on the lot makes it easy for prospects to view and test drive, maximizing sale opportunities.
We take an up-front listing fee of $299, which covers the work we do to prepare and market the vehicle for sale, including a 133-point inspection, complete interior and exterior detail, a vehicle history report, professional photographs, ad copywriting, and various online classified listings. After we sell your vehicle, we take a $799 success fee directly from the sales proceeds. Our incentives are completely aligned.
A flat-fee drives two important behaviors: (1) it ensures that CarLotz is equally motivated to sell ANY of our vehicles regardless of price so that all are treated equally; and (2) it ensures a positive buying experience since we have no incentive to push a certain vehicle on a buyer.
To get started, we will need a copy of driver’s license for all registered owners, a current registration, proof of insurance, title (or lienholder information, if applicable), all keys/fobs, and any available service records.

This was by far the easiest car selling experience I could have ever imagined. I worked at first with John and Cobi who helped price out my car and get it listed. Within a week, they had it inspected, detailed and listed with a great set of professionally done pictures. The manager there, Charlie helped keep me updated with how my car is doing, and what kind of interest it’s getting. It sold extremely fast! Charlie called to congratulate me immediately after the sale. I will never buy or sell my cars from anyone other than Carlotz. I can ...
