Sell Us your Car Without Buying One of Ours!

Yet Another Way We Keep It Simple at Lake Shore

Looking to sell your car?  No problem! Seventy percent of our used cars come from customers like you, and frankly, we'd like to keep it that way.

There are a few items that you will need to bring with you if you are looking to sell your car.

What You Will Need:

  • Your car's title or payoff information (all titleholders should be present)
  • Valid & current registration (used to confirm ownership)
  • Valid state issued photo ID (for all titleholders)
  • All Keys (If original keys are missing, your offer may need to be adjusted)

We make the appraisal process simple, providing you with national sales trends and auction data while also appraising the vehicle with you by our side to give you a clear understanding of our appraisal process. We will make you a written offer and if you choose to accept it, you will leave the same day with payment in hand.

How we Determine your Offer

  • Vehicle Condition (We check inside and out.  Everything from the upholstery to frame damage.)
  • Features & Options (These are the things that make your car unique.  What upgrades have you made? What packages and other options come with your vehicle?)
  • Vehicle History Report (These reports, like servicing and accident reports, help to give us better insights into the vehicle's past)
  • How Your Car Drives (We will take your vehicle on a quick test drive to check the brakes, steering, AC/heat, and any other features commonly used while the vehicle is running)

We Buy Cars - The Advantage of Selling your Vehicle to Lake Shore Toyota


Why consider selling your car to the team here at Lake Shore Toyota? It begins with expectations, or lack thereof. Many dealerships will expect the purchase of a new vehicle or pre-owned model to accompany this transaction, but not us. You can sell your vehicle and walk away with a same-day payment in hand, regardless of your future daily driver plans. It is this type of transparency that helps set us apart, along with the professional appraisal process your vehicle passes through.

When you decide to sell your vehicle to our dealership, we conduct a straightforward appraisal process to verify your model's condition. We then provide a fair offer based on national sales trend and auction data, with this information readily available for you to access at any time. Based on this information, you can decide whether you wish to complete the transaction or consider additional options. Our same-day payment finalization makes selling your vehicle convenient whenever you decide to move on, with an expert team ready to answer your questions and clear up any confusion along the way.
