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.

I went in to look at BMW and was pleased with the customer service. Jeff and Kayla were very helpful and took their time explaining everything to us. Very pleased with the buying experience.

When I found myself in urgent need of a new ride, I was dreading the classic car salesman experience, and I was pleasantly surprised with my experience here! I found the car I wanted online, checked it out in person, and decided to buy it. No tricks or gimmicks! CarLotz has a business model that the rest of the industry should take note of... NOBODY likes having a salesman breathing down your neck the whole time you shop! The sales team is very, very helpful in answering my questions, and never for a second did I feel pressured. Another thing ...

Great experience today at Carlotz. I live near a CL hub and saw a car we liked last night online. I test drove the car around 10am, talked through details with Ned who was super helpful, returned home, and had credit paperwork in my inbox minutes later. After filling out details with help from Alex, and uploading pics (via my phone & computer which amazed me), the application was approved less than 30 min later. Other paperwork came quickly and by mid afternoon, my car was personally delivered to my front steps by the CL team. Amazing job to make buying ...

I absolutely loved my experience here. They sold my 2008 Honda Accord in 3 weeks, and after their fee, I ended up with $2,300 more than the trade-in offer another dealer gave me. As a single mother, I would never have sold the car myself due to time constraints and the hassle of dealing with strangers but did not want to settle for a low-ball trade in number, so I was thrilled when a friend told me about CarLotz. If you have a car to sell, I highly recommend you consider using this service. I personally will never sell a car another way.

After searching for the right car for weeks, I came across a fine-looking BMW at CarLotz. I had not heard of this dealership, but they had many positive reviews online, so I decided to check them out. I sent a few questions about the car, and one of their client support reps Cody got back to me within 15 minutes. Off to a good start. Cody set an appointment for me to come take a test drive the next afternoon, and from the moment I walked through the door, this place felt different. Everyone was so welcoming, and the space had ...

I can now recommend Carlotz because they carefully review and respond to both positive and negative customer feedback and put into place processes to build on positive experiences and prevent negative experiences from reoccurring. Keep up the hard work, Carlotz!

We were searching for a replacement for our daughter's VW recently totaled by another driver. We wanted to get her another Saab 9-3 and found a nice one at CarLotz. Frankly, we were unaware the business operated as a consignment operation, but their salesperson, Ralph Geilker walked us through the operating model and they had some explanatory lit. on hand too. As it turns out, we really liked the car, and after some back-and-forth with the owner, we bought it about a week later. Bottom line, the overall experience was very relaxed but professional...not once did I get ...
