Guest Reviews

This was the first time I sold a car with CarLotz and definitely won’t be the last. Setting up the sale took a total of 5 minutes, and picking up the check took 4 minutes. My car sold in 10 days at $2,000 more than other dealerships trade-in value! I’m extremely impressed with the care the associates take with each transaction. I highly recommend this selling option to everyone in the market.”

“I absolutely loved CarLotz! 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 did not feel comfortable or have the time to sell this car myself, but I did not want to settle for a low-ball offer, so I was thrilled a friend told me about CarLotz. If you are selling a car, I highly recommend you consider this service. I will personally never sell a car another way.”

“Simply the most pleasant car buying experience I’ve ever had. Buyers get the benefit of not paying a dealer mark-up, and sellers make more money than they would on a trade in. Brilliant business model, and staffed by some of the most helpful, genuinely nice people around. After my experience at CarLotz, I can’t imagine buying or selling my next car anywhere else. Flawless experience from start to finish. I’d absolutely recommend them to absolutely anyone!”

Seller FAQs

Seller FAQs

If you have a car to sell, you’ve traditionally had two choices: (1) sell the car 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: thousands more than trade-in without the hassle of selling it yourself. Our typical seller makes $2,000-$4,000 more than wholesale trade-in value, and we do all the work.
Just bring us your car, and we’ll help you pick a price. We inspect, detail, and photograph your car so it looks its best for potential buyers. We then list it for sale on our website and major car buying websites like AutoTrader,, and CarGurus. In addition, we stage it for sale at our stores, which are located in high-traffic retail areas. We manage buyer inquiries 24×7, conduct test drives, negotiate a deal on your behalf, collect payment safely from the buyer, and do all the DMV paperwork. Once the car 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 your vehicle sells as quickly as possible.
While you control the price throughout the process, we are experts at pricing vehicles and are here to help you price competitively. We’ll make a recommendation based on real-time sales listings for similar vehicles, auction sales data, and trusted vehicle pricing sources like NADA.
Of course! Many of our sellers lease or have outstanding loans on their vehicles, which is one of the reasons they are drawn to our service. We help them obtain more value for their vehicle to pay off their loan or lease 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 car 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 stores are in high traffic areas that receive a significant number of local walk-in customers. Having your car available for sale on the lot makes it easy for prospects to view and test drive, maximizing your sale opportunities.
We take an up-front listing fee of $199, which covers the work we do to prepare and market your vehicle for sale, including a state safety 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: If we don’t sell your car, we don’t get paid a success fee.
A flat-fee drives two important behaviors: (1) it ensures that CarLotz is equally motivated to sell ANY of the cars consigned regardless of price so that all customers are treated equally; and (2) it ensures a positive buying experience since we have no incentive to push a certain car on a buyer. In addition, CarLotz sellers typically make $2,000-$4,000 more than wholesale trade-in prices regardless of the cost of the car, and we designed our fee to be a reasonable portion of the value added.
To get started, we will need a copy of your driver’s license, current registration, proof of insurance, title (or lienholder information, if applicable), and any available service records.
Yes! We are licensed to sell motorcycles, so just give us a call, stop by The Bike Shop by CarLotz, or tell us about your bike.



Please tell us about your vehicle! You’ll receive an instant valuation estimate, and a CarLotz team member will reach out to discuss the appraisal, the CarLotz process, and answer any questions.
