  • Can I sell my leased vehicle at SCA?

    Yes, SCA can assist you in selling your leased vehicle, even if you don't own the car, provided you follow the legal steps required for selling a financed vehicle and possess the necessary documents. These steps include notifying your lender to arrange for the settlement of the remaining balance and ensuring your contract allows for the sale at this time. Keep in mind that vehicles typically depreciate quickly, leading to negative equity if sold too soon. However, depreciation slows down over time. We recommend using our smart valuation tool to monitor your car’s value and determine the best time to sell. If timed right, you could end up with positive equity and pay no additional fees, including transfer fees.

  • Is SCA a good place to sell my car?

    SCA is the best place to sell your car because it is unique in how quick, easy, and competitive it is in getting you the best price. It is completely online so you can conveniently sell your car without ever having to leave the house. As an added token, you can see how much your car is worth before even deciding to sell it.

  • Will the dealership buy any car regardless of miles and condition?

    Yes. You can sell any vehicle regardless of the number of miles and its condition and still receive top dollar from a dealership in most cases. Vehicles with fewer miles and in better condition will make a better profit, but most vehicles get more money when you sell online through SCA than a part exchange, trade, or with a private party. It should be noted that a car’s age, mileage, condition, and service history are the most impactful when it comes to the car’s depreciation. Keeping records of all your service history will help you get the most fair and accurate price once you are ready to put your car up for sale.

  • Do I pay taxes when I sell my car?

    You will only have to pay taxes in most states when you sell your car if you make a profit from it. Any profitable transaction, such as selling a car for profit, is seen as taxable state income. We make sure that you complete your sale with no charges or hidden fees, so it is 100 percent free to sell your car through SCA. When using SCA, the buyer pays any fees owed so that the service is always free to the seller. Although the seller will have to pay state taxes.

  • Can I sell my car at SCA if I still have a loan on it?

    Yes, you can sell your car at SCA even if you have an outstanding loan under a Hire Purchase (HP) or Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) agreement. Many people opt to sell their vehicles even when they're still under loan to unlock their equity and, often, to make a profit. However, you should first review your contract to check for any minimum repayment requirements before you can sell the car. If such terms exist, contact your lender for a settlement figure.

  • Will SCA buy my leased vehicle?

    Yes, SCA will buy a leased vehicle that you don’t have ownership of as long as you go through the legal steps to sell a financed car and have the documents related to it. Those steps include notifying the lender to arrange the settlement of the balance and ensuring that you are in a place in your contract where you can sell. Keep in mind that cars lose a lot of value quickly so expect to get negative equity if you sell too early, but after financing for a while, the depreciation slows down. We recommend that you track your car’s ongoing value using our smart valuation tool to see if it is the right time to sell and transfer ownership. It is possible to receive positive equity if the timing is right and you will not have to pay any fees including transfer fees.
