America’s Car-Mart will buy your car even if you don’t buy from us.

Forget about searching for a perfect buyer that can often take weeks. Our car buying process is quick and easy, and you’ll get your payment fast.

How it works

Describe your vehicle

Tell us about your vehicle and receive an offer. We’ll schedule a time to bring your car to a local Car-Mart, or we’ll come to you to conduct an appraisal.

Get an offer

Our offer is the same whether you sell or trade-in. The offer is good for 7 days, so you have time to think it over.

You decide

Apply our offer to trade-in on a vehicle or take your payment and be on your way. It’s that simple.

If you agree to our online offer, a Car-Mart associate will set up an appointment to conduct an in-person inspection of your vehicle to verify the vehicle condition matches the information we received online. We may adjust some offers following an in-person inspection of the vehicle.
