Frequently asked questions
Why should I use CarStub.com?
CarStub.com allows a private party consumer access to dealer only information in real-time. Yes it’s true! You received real-time price evaluation of your vehicles worth from our software program that charts vehicles sold through the largest nationwide auto auction corporation. This enables us to give accurate quotes on used vehicles and eliminates the hassles of private party sales or the danger of a trade-in price which in almost every case is under evaluated.
Do you recommend I try to sell my car private party first?
If you don’t mind strangers coming to your door, doing DMV paperwork, getting your vehicle to pass smog, and having to worry about fraudulent cashier’s checks then go for it. At CarStub.com, we take all the hassle and risk out of the process of selling a used vehicle.
Isn’t it easier just to trade my car in?
Trading your vehicle in to a dealer is not a recommended option. You are relying on the dealers used car manager to evaluate your vehicle. It is in his/her best interest to under bid your vehicle.
