We Buy Used Cars
at Ramsey Mazda

If you have a car that you would like to sell, then we invite you to bring it to Ramsey Auto. We are always on the lookout for used models that complement our ever-changing used inventory. We offer fair prices for used vehicles so that you can find a selling price that meets your needs.

How Ramsey Auto Determines Your Used Vehicle's Value

At Ramsey Auto, we offer a comprehensive approach to your vehicle's value. Unlike the once-over and undervalued offer that you may have experienced from private-party sellers in the past, we take your vehicle's evaluation seriously to give you an accurate value and a fair price. Your business and how your vehicle could complement our used inventory is important to us, so we are thoughtful and transparent with our evaluation.

To give a complete picture of your vehicle's worth, we address several factors. First, we look at the vehicle's condition. Not only do we look for cosmetic damage like dings and scrapes, or lack thereof, we also perform a thorough inspection of the vehicle's functionality and capabilities to make sure that there are no red flags. We also inspect the features and options to make sure they are functioning properly.

Next, we look at your vehicle's history by requesting or viewing its vehicle history report. These reports help to give us a better perspective of your vehicle's history. These reports can include information like past maintenance, odometer readings, manufacturer recalls, and collisions or damage.

We take your vehicle for a road test to ensure it drives as it should. We keep an eye out for details like how well the brakes work, if the car pulls in a certain direction, and any unusual noises. We also take into account the current market conditions to see the demand for your vehicle.

Bring in your vehicle to us today to discover an unbiased evaluation of your vehicle!

What You Need for the Trade-in Experience

Trading in can be a convenient way to put the value of your current vehicle towards your next car for a one-stop-shop experience. If you have decided on trading-in your vehicle, then there are a couple of things that you will need to be fully prepared. Bring these few items to complete your trade-in:

  • Valid ID
  • Registration
  • Vehicle Keys
  • Car Title

With these few items, you will be prepared to trade in your vehicle and take advantage of the convenience and benefits. Speak with our sales team to see if you are eligible for a trade-in tax credit. Iowa collects a 5% sales tax rate as a "One Time Registration." By trading in, you can avoid your trade-in vehicle being subject to sales tax. Speak with our sales department to learn more about this opportunity.

Why Trade-In Your Vehicle

Selling your vehicle to us will give you more money towards a vehicle to make your own. We can help you get the most for your vehicle, ensuring you are getting the highest possible price for the one that you want to trade to us and that you will have the best financing options for your new Subaru. Having more money to put towards your down payment will lower the amount you will need to put towards each monthly payment, reducing the stress that you could experience from monthly payments that stretch your budget too thin.
