Do I need to make an appointment?

It is always best to make an appointment so our professional staff can give you and your vehicle our undivided attention.

What do I need to bring with me when I come in?

  • Your Personal Identification
  • Your Vehicle's Ownership Document
  • Bank Documentation Regarding Any Balance Owing
    Note: The staff will check for liens on your vehicle so if you recently paid out the vehicle you would need a letter from that financial institution stating it is paid in full.
  • Service Records, if you have them

Do you buy financed or leased vehicles?

We do buy financed vehicles. Bring in the documentation from the bank or financial institution stating how much you owe or what the buyout is. If there is positive equity after our quote then you will be issued a cheque in that amount.

Do you buy out-of-province vehicles?

Yes we buy out-of-province vehicles, as well as US vehicles that have been imported. The staff will run a Carfax on your vehicle for liens, history and accidents.

How long does the entire process take?

The entire process takes 30 minutes or less if you pre-book. If you just drop in it depends on how many cars are ahead of you.

How do you determine the value of my vehicle?

We determine the value of your vehicle by year, make, model, mileage and overall condition of your car. Our appraisers have over 30 years of experience appraising cars. We also use other tools such as black book, marketing reports and market value reports.

Will I get a higher price at SELLMYCARIN30MINUTES.COM?

Just ask for our highest, instant cash price...then decide for yourself!

Are you a professional service?

Yes! Our staff has over 30 years experience. You will be treated with the utmost courtesy and respect. We will not pressure you and the final decision is always yours.

Will I get paid the same day?

Yes! A registered corporate check will be issued to you.

My dealer offered me a "trade-in" it worth my time?

No! Trade-ins are "Always the Lowest Price". Inflating the value of your trade-in is based upon how much the car dealer can overcharge for their car. It's an old retail strategy that dealers have used for years. It confuses the buyer. Dealers obtain "Off Lease" cars from manufacturers for below market prices. They DO NOT and WILL NOT pay you top dollar. SELLMYCARIN30MINUTES.COM won't confuse you. We will pay you the highest possible price, on-the-spot!

Does SELLMYCARIN30MINUTES.COM make house calls?

Please call us for details and information.

Is a "private party" sale more profitable?

No! Bargain hunters and tire kickers without cash only look for giveaway deals. A qualified buyer will lease or finance a used/new car at very low or 0% interest rates.

Other considerations:

  • The possibility of not getting paid after you made a deal with that "nice" stranger.
  • Bad or fraudulent cheques.
  • The repairs you need to make before the sale.
  • Fraudulent sales tax reporting or an odometer rollback that you will be blamed for!
  • You have NO idea with whom or "what" you will be dealing with!

They sell advertising, classified ads, books and subscriptions. They will sell your personal information to others. That's how they make money. They will NOT buy your vehicle for any price. SELLMYCARIN30MINUTES.COM buys and pays you instantly on the spot.

Can I sell my car even though it is not plated?

Yes at SELLMYCARIN30MINUTES.COM we can take care of getting it to us or we will come to you.

How easy is it for me to get return transportation?

If pre-arranged we can even offer you a drive home.

If my car does not run or is worth nothing will you still take it?

Yes, we will arrange to have it picked up and disposed of safely.
