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.

The used car industry continues to be plagued by reports of dishonesty and slimy practices. My experience in Northeast Ohio mostly validates these perceptions. They are always lying to you to get you into their store.How refreshing to find the unusual car I had be researching for 6 months At Carlotz on Broad Street.  Unlike with so many places, after driving there (in this case almost 500 miles), the promised vehicle was there and the salesperson Charlie Nelson was there st 9am sharp.  He set up a test drive immediately.The vehicle I had come to buy, a 2018 Kia Niro Plugin ...

Great team. The minute I made a decision on purchase my vehicle Cobi, John and Charlie began working together to expedite my transaction. John even drove me down to drop off my rental with a ride back. I highly recommend the West Broad location for great service.

JACOBI! He! Is! THE GOAT! He worked with me for legit 4 hours....WITH my baby, and watched her when I had to switch things around from car to car. This dude not only worked with me on a back and forth basis, he shot out to one of my requested financing companies to work with me out on a limb. This crew of people were working the entire time I was there, all three were on top of their game and did everything they could to endlessly work with everyone in the room. Will 100% recommend!

Second SUV I’ve consigned @ carlotz. Both sold in a week with no problems at all. Highly recommend the Carlotz team and the consignment model to anyone looking to make more $ than trade-in.
