Why dealerships won't give you a fair value for your vehicle.

It's the dealerships' main source of revenue.

Many dealerships make a killing on traded-in vehicles. These departments offer minimal trade-in value on your used vehicle before selling it at a much higher value. Don’t let a dealership shortchange you on your vehicle’s worth!

New car sales actually lose money.

Every day a new vehicle goes unsold is another small loss that continues to mount until it’s finally purchased. As a result, it often falls to the used car sales departments to turn a profit if new vehicles aren’t selling at the pace they hoped for.

It may have to go to auction after they buy it.

Many times trade-in vehicles are required to be sold at auction if they don't meet certain standards. Dealerships try to offer less for your trade to make sure they can still make a profit even if they don't sell the car on their sales lot.

We make our car buying process easy to get you the fastest cash offer. 

1.          Fill out our intake form: The first step in the process with Don’t Trade It In is simple. Visit our website to find our initial questionnaire. This gives us a brief overview of the condition of your car. Avoid downplaying past issues or damages; we guarantee we are still interested in your vehicle if it’s still in driving condition.

2.          Inspect your personalized market report: Once your intake form is complete, we’ll give you a market report that features some added specs. This informs you of the vehicle’s estimated value.

3.          Hear our initial offer based on your vehicle info: You’ll still need to pass a final inspection to get that offer in full. However, we’ll be happy to get your vehicle off your hands as soon as you do.

After you’ve completed our intake questions and received your instant cash offer, we’ll schedule a convenient pick up time. If the vehicle matches the intake questionnaire we’ve received, we’ll trade the keys for your cash value. 

Be sure to clear out your used vehicle before the final inspection. You wouldn’t want us driving your car away with any forgotten items tucked away! 

The question everyone has when trying to sell a used vehicle is, “Should I sell my car in Houston? Is it really worth that much?” 

These questions are what leads people to take the first offer they receive. They want to get the frustrating process over with quickly. Dealerships and junkyards know that people don’t understand the value of their car, so it’s easy to make a profit and make a much lower offer than deserved. 

At Don’t Trade It In®, we value our customers. We aren’t interested in scamming Houston locals for their old vehicles. Instead, we want to give you the best value so you can take that cash offer to find the next vehicle you’ll love. 

There are three main factors that determine a car’s value and whether we’re interested in purchasing it. 

Being in Houston, you probably have a rugged car that can withstand lots of adventure and elements. There’s a lot of debate around what qualifies as a junk car. The term gets tossed around a lot, however we’re less interested in cars that would do better being sold for parts at a junk yard. 

If your car features certain parts or features that aren’t common on the market, your car will be valued at a higher price. Although we aren’t interested in purchasing scraps from junk cars, they still greatly increase your car’s appraisal. 

We only purchase vehicles that are still in driving condition. If, for any reason, your vehicle is in its final days, you may be more interested in contacting a local junkyard or place that’s interested in purchasing the junk vehicles for spare parts. 

If you’re overwhelmed by the sell my car Houston options, don’t fret. We’re here to help you speed up the process and sell your car right away. You’ll save time by not debating over which dealership to choose in this big city; you’ll already be on your way to getting your car off your hands.

Don’t waste your time hassling with businesses or individuals on Craigslist or Ebay. Those people are less interested in a trade-in process that values you, the customer, and focuses more on what they’ll benefit from your sale. 

Contact a respected Houston company like Don’t Trade It In® for the smoothest cash for cars transaction.



If you don’t have the title for your used vehicle, you’ll need to call one of our professional car buyers to see if that’s an option. Our decision is made on a case-by-case basis. Some factors that influence this are: 


-Age of the vehicle 


-Location of the used vehicle


If you don’t have the title, you’ll need to provide some sort of photo ID that matches the car’s registration to prove ownership. 

Cars without a title will be worth less than those with a title. To get the most value for your vehicle, you’ll benefit from taking a trip to the Houston Motor Vehicle Commission or DMV to obtain the necessary documents to make the buying process easier. Otherwise, we can’t guarantee cash for your car.

At Don’t Trade It In®, we want our Houston customers to get this process over with quickly. Once you’ve filled out your initial online intake form, a customer service agent will get back to you promptly with an offer. 

Our process is quick and hassle free. We don’t want to pressure you into going with our offer, although we’re pretty sure that compared to most Houston, TX dealerships, you will. 

After you’ve accepted our offer, we’ll make arrangements to meet you or come to you to pick up your vehicle for sale. At the same time, we’ll present you with your payment if it meets our quick in-person inspection. This in-person inspection is just to make sure that the vehicle matches the information and damages reported on your intake form. 

In some cases, same day pickup can be scheduled, but it’s not always guaranteed. 

We pay cash at the time of your vehicle pickup for all pickup trucks, SUVs, vans, and cars. The only requirement is they must be running properly. Our business isn’t equipped to tow vehicles off of your property. If your vehicle is no longer in a running condition, our business isn’t right for you. 

If your vehicle is no longer running due to damage from an accident or other reasons, you’ll be better off contacting a Houston auto recycler to get cash for your vehicle’s parts. This is how you can get money for your spare parts that are in perfect condition. 

However, if you have a car in working condition, you can expect us to deliver the cash on-site. We’re happy to offer you the fastest cash possible for your vehicle.



Don’t Trade It In® is trusted by Houston locals for a reason. Our qualified professionals guarantee that you’ll be satisfied with our cash offer. Our business is committed to pleasing the customer and getting you the best deal for your used vehicle. Don’t waste time getting the runaround from Houston dealerships and junk yards. Get started on our simple intake questionnaire today. If you have any remaining questions about the Houston car buying process, call Don’t Trade It In today. We’re here to help you get fast cash for your car immediately!
