How Selling Your Car To GiveMeTheVin Works

Selling your car doesn’t need to be stressful, we make it simple!

1. Get the Offer


Wondering “Where to sell my car in Costa Mesa, CA?” is the first step.

For many, there is little to no information available about the best way to sell your car, and it’s easy to end up conversing with dealers who will give you a lowball offer.

But with GivemetheVIN, these inconveniences are non-existent. Just enter your car’s 17-digit VIN on our site, and that’s all we need to get your vehicle’s model, year manufactured, engine size, etc.



2. We Pick-up or You Deliver



Once we receive your automobile’s VIN, we will give you an offer range that matches the value of your car.


If you are happy with our bid and you close the deal, you can choose to let us pick up your vehicle at a date and time of your choosing. Or you can opt to drop the car off at one of our locations if you are nearby.


Our pick-ups are FREE of charge, and we do vehicle collections anywhere in the continental U.S. Say the word, and we will come to you at a convenient time.



3. Close The Deal



When you sell your vehicle with GivemetheVIN, you get your payment on the pick-up day. We pay with live checks that you can immediately cash out at the nearest Bank of America branch.


Our payment method sets us apart from other car wholesalers in the country. For example, Carmax issues a non-cashable bank draft, preventing you from receiving your money immediately. Instead, you have to wait several days before processin

“I got a better than fair offer for my car. It was a super easy experience and much better for me than trying to sell it on my own. It was about a 2 hour experience and they paid for my ride home.”

“I was very pleased with the results from working with GMTV. The team I worked with was very responsive and professional. The final package came with my check, and it was activated as promised. I could have attempted to sell direct myself, but this was a much safer and convenient alternative.”
