Hertz Trade-Ins

Cash for your down payment

If you're able and it makes sense for your unique situation, you can earn a great amount of value for your next vehicle purchase when you trade in your car at the Hertz location near you. This will set you up with a generous and fair amount you can use when shopping for your next pre-owned car, truck or SUV through Hertz Car Sales; you'll find the process with us is far easier than with other dealerships.

Determining your trade-in's value

There are plenty of factors that go into your trade-in's value that we consider as we appraise your current vehicle. Model year, mileage, and overall condition are the main points of focus, but we take our time - though efficiently - to make sure everything is running in great shape. To get the most out of your trade-in's value, you'll want to keep your car in as good of condition as you can. That's going to help you save for your next purchase from Hertz Car Sales, all thanks to getting a great value back from your trade-in.

Hertz Car Buying FAQ

Why sell at Hertz Car Sales?

The Hertz Car Buying Service makes selling your car quicker and easier than selling it privately. You won't need to purchase local ads, post your car online, or let strangers test drive your car. Instead, just fill out our online form. Once you do, bring your car to our dealership for an official appraisal and receive an offer voucher. Our offer voucher is valid for 7 days1 and can be redeemed for a check.2

How is the offer determined?

Our official appraisal considers the vehicle's age, condition, features and options, and the vehicle's history. We will inspect how your vehicle drives, and verify the condition and mileage. If repairs are needed, we may adjust our offer accordingly. The offer voucher you receive is good for 7 days1. You can redeem the voucher for a check in the amount stated, less any remaining payoff amount if you have a lien on the vehicle.2

What do I need to sell my car?

Requirements may change state to state, but these items you'll need at the dealership when selling your car:

  • Titleholder of car with valid, state-issued photo ID
  • Your car's title or payoff information
  • Most current and valid registrations
  • All sets of keys

Do I need an appointment at the dealership?

No, bring your car in after completing the online form, to the dealership you chose, and we will assist you. If you're short on time, give that location a call before you arrive to make sure you will be seen promptly.

Do I need to buy a car from Hertz in order to sell mine?

No, we will offer you the same price for your car whether you are buying a car from us or not.

When do I receive my check?

If you redeem the voucher between 8am-4pm EST Monday thru Thursday or 8am-3pm EST Friday, you will receive your check on the same day. If the check request is received after these hours, it will be processed on the following business day.
