How Selling Your Car To GiveMeTheVin Works

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

1. Get the Offer


We ask you for information about your car, including the VIN, plates and vehicle condition. Simply hit Submit when you’ve filled out all the details.

After you tell us about your vehicle, upload clear and well-lit photos of different sides of the car.  

Once we review all the information, we’ll follow up with a dollar range offer. If you’re interested, just let us know, and a member will carefully review the final details and send an exact dollar amount your way.

2. We Pick-up or You Deliver


As soon as we know you’re ready, we can arrange to pick up your vehicle for free, or you can deliver it to us at our location in New York City, NY. 


Our evaluator will look over the documentation and your vehicle to ensure all the details match up.  All that’s left is for us to collect the vehicle title and hand you the check.


3. We Accept Any Vehicle


When GivemetheVIN discovered that our competitors handled their transactions via bank transfer, we vowed to do things differently. A bank transfer can take up to a week to clear, and cutting a check is just a faster and more secure payment process. 


You can cash your check or deposit it at any Bank of America location.

If the check is stolen or misplaced, it’s easily stopped so that the payment ends up in the right hands—yours.


Why Sell Your Car to GivemetheVIN, New York City, NY

“Yes it’s true – we’ll pay you $100 for the last look on your car!”

GivemetheVIN encourages auto owners to shop offers to get a reasonable rate for their vehicle, and then present it to us to get the best rate.  Our 28 years of experience has built a dynamic and well-established reputation when it comes to taking care of our owners and helping them get the best value. 

Dare to Compare:

Not All Vehicles Are Made the Same:

Your Vehicle Is Worth Something:

We have the best offers for the Big Apple. You don’t accept CarMax as your go-to. Dare to compare offers. If you think another offer is better, we’ll write you a check for $100 for the “Last Look”.

We believe in giving fair offers depending on the type of vehicle. GivemetheVIN defines “vehicle” differently, and this  includes ambulances, food trucks, buses and more!

If your car has a few dings, we will still be willing to take a look. If your vehicle has a salvage title history, we have bought and sold those cars, too. Our years of industry experience allows us to get you a competitive rate for its worth.
