We'll buy Yours even if you don't buy Ours


Have questions about selling or trading your car? We've got answers.

Your LaFontaine offer is good for either cash or trade-in credit, and you'll receive the same value no matter which you choose. Once you receive your instant offer, you can save it to your LaFontaine account and apply it to your new ride. A LaFontaine valet will come to you to pick your old car up and deliver your new car right to your door.

And don't worry! If you change your mind about the new car, we'll still buy your car for cash.

Yes, and our offer will be the same whether you're buying from us or not.

Due to the pandemic, some stores now require an appointment to sell your car or get an offer. To see if your store is appointment only, go to buycenter.edriveauto.com. You may also schedule a time online to get your offer by going to buycenter.edriveauto.com.

We review current market conditions as well as your car's specific year, make, model, mileage, and vehicle history report. We examine your car's condition inside and out for major defects like frame or flood damage. We also test drive your car and check to see if the brakes and turn signals are working (among other things). If repairs are needed, we may adjust our offer accordingly. In regards to cleanliness, the long-term maintenance and care of your car is what's most important in determining our appraisal offer.

Requirements can vary from state to state, but there are a few items you'll need no matter where you are:

  • Your car's title or payoff information. All titleholders should be present.
  • Valid and current registrations
  • Valid state-issued photo ID for all title holders.
  • All keys and remotes

Please note that you don't need these things to get an offer for your car, but if you think you plan to sell when you get your offer, you should come prepared with these items.

You will leave with payment in hand the same day you sell us your car. We pay with a bank draft, which is a type of check where payment is guaranteed to be available by the issuing bank. A bank draft must be deposited and cannot be cashed. Before attempting to draw on the bank draft, always check with your bank to see if they have a specific hold policy on deposits.

If your payoff amount is more than the offer for your car, the difference is called "negative equity." In some cases, the negative equity can be included in your financing when you buy a LaFontaine car. If not, we'll calculate the difference between your pay-off and our offer to you and you can pay LaFontaine directly. If the amount you owe is less than $250, we will accept a personal check. LaFontaine stores accept cashier's checks, certified checks, certified funds, cash, and debit cards. LaFontaine Car Buying Centers (locations that only buy cars) can accept cashier's checks, certified checks, and certified funds. Our written offers are good for seven days, giving you time to get any necessary funds to settle your transaction.

Yes! In most cases, you can sell your leased car in almost the same way as any other financed car. We'll appraise the car, then contact the leasing company for a payoff quote and process any equity you might have. Please note that some leasing companies will not allow you to sell the car prior to the expiration of the lease. Also, be aware that your leased car might not be eligible for trade-in tax savings. Check with your leasing company for complete details.
