Here's how to sell your car online with CarGurus

Find out what your car is worth

Provide us key details about your car like mileage, exterior condition, & vehicle identification number(VIN). Don't have your VIN handy? Typically, we can look it up using your license plate.

Get relevant documents together

Set your price and write a description

Be detailed! Describe any special features or aftermarket options. Be honest. Clearly show your odometer reading and highlight any dents or dings.

Set up a test drive with potential buyers

Pick a time and place and let shoppers take your car for a spin. Make a copy of your potential buyer's driver's license before they hit the road.

Checkout with CarGurus Pay

We'll help you with paperwork (including the bill of sale), provide secure transfer of funds, and clear up any existing car loans. Plus, you'll get up to $75k in purchase protection.
