Some famous guy once wrote, "Parting is such sweet sorrow." Apparently, no one introduced this man to Peddle because there's no sadness in using our service to part with your car. Quick and easy, we keep the process of selling your used car online as sorrow-free as possible.

Here’s some stuff you should know before selling your car for the sweet, sweet cash you desire (especially once you accept an offer).

once you've accepted an offer...

To recap, you've answered a dozen-ish questions about your car, our system assessed its market data instantly, and we generated a solid offer for you in minutes. Soon, you'll join the ranks of many thousands of happy car owners who have said “Yes, yes, yes, I will sell my car online with Peddle!” But first, you’ll need to...

create an account

Congratulations! You’ve accepted our offer and everything is coming up roses. Now, in order to set up your free pickup, you’ll need to create an account. To complete your profile, we'll ask you to provide the following information:

  • Your name
  • Address
  • Phone number (you can opt-in to receive text notifications and updates)
  • The color of your car
  • Your car's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
  • The state in which your title was issued
  • The owner's name on the title
  • Confirm if you can sign and notarize the title
  • Confirm the presence or absence of any outstanding liens

schedule your pickup

Once we have all your info, we will contact one of our picker-upper partners to come and fetch your car (and give you a check). You’ll be contacted by phone to schedule a pickup time that’s convenient for you.

get things in order (days before pickup)

Before our driver arrives, be sure to clear out any personal belongings.

It's also super important to have all the necessary keys and documentation in hand, including your title, if you have it. If you don't have a title, don't worry. We may have buyers that purchase cars without a title or even keys. Just make sure to let us know in advance.

We highly recommend locating your title well in advance of your pickup. (You’d be surprised how many people THINK they know where it is and then can’t find it when pickup day comes.)

If you are selling your car with a title, some states require your title to be notarized. If you live in one of those states, or if your title was issued in one of those states, be sure to have that done beforehand.

get ready for pickup (today’s the day!)

Be sure to park your car in a spot that is easily accessible by a tow truck. And have a screwdriver handy for removing your license plates.

When our driver arrives, they’ll do a quick inspection of your car and check the boxes to confirm the info you provided is legit. Assuming everything checks out, our driver will hand over the payment you accepted in your offer on the spot. Your car will be towed away. And you'll be free of its burden. You’ll receive an email confirming your transaction details, which you can use as proof of sale for any post-sale paperwork required by your state.
