Don’t worry: our team is here to help you understand your options every step of the way and make sure you get a fair payout for your current vehicle.

After asking you somewhere around a dozen-ish questions about your car, we assess the market data related to your car to generate an instant offer (that’s how much we’ll buy your car for). We won’t ask you for any contact or personal information before you view your offer.
Once you create an account, you’ll have seven days to accept our offer.
You'll schedule a pickup if you accept (heck yeah!). When our local towing partner arrives, they’ll quickly assess your vehicle to ensure everything is in order, at which point you’ll receive your payment.
We suggest cleaning out your vehicle, taking out any personal belongings or garbage, and running it through the car wash, as the first impression is always important.
Make sure you have on hand your car keys (and any remotes), a valid state-issued photo ID, your vehicle title and registration, and of course, the vehicle you’re ready to trade in!
Selling to a dealership is the easiest way to get paid for your car. With the title in hand, you can expect a check within 1-2 business days and, when possible, the same day. See dealer for details. If you still have a loan on your car, we will mail the check directly to your lender, so you don’t have to. Because we buy cars every day, for Rainbow Trades, we have the process down pat. It is no hassle for us to do the work, so you can enjoy all that extra time you now have on your hands.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to our customers. We want to provide you with the simplest way to sell your vehicle and keep your business local. We know that when it comes to selling your car, doing it on your own can be challenging. With us, you know you’re working with a trusted community member. Our buying process is fast and straightforward, with no obligation to purchase.
