How It Works When You Sell A Car In San Diego

SellMax is the answer to your car selling problems. We are the solution. Our company was first started in the early 90’s and we were on a simple mission and that was to help people sell their cars and receive the best, fair price for them.

Prior to SellMax, selling your vehicle in San Diego was quite difficult and more of a pain than anything. In fact, most people would simply avoid selling their car because it was such as hassle. Often, you had two options to get rid of your vehicle and they were:

1. List an advertisement in the local newspaper and hope that someone would call you and purchase your vehicle


2. You could take your vehicle to the local dealership and find out how much they offer you for your car, or trade in.

Tom and Tony, the founders of SellMax in San Diego, CA, were not happy with the two options available, especially since one meant that you may receive next to nothing for your car. There had to be a different way to sell your vehicle and it wasn’t until Tom and Tony came up with the SellMax car buying model did the entire vehicle selling industry change.

SellMax has created a simple buy-all-cars policy that is still enacted today. This policy helped to open doors for all consumers who wanted to sell their cars SellMax continues to be able to provide reasonable and fair prices for cars in San Diego.
