    The service I received was above expectations. They showed a lot of interest in customer satisfaction and that meant a lot to me. William kept checking up on me, and wanting to make sure everything was alright with how we were proceeding. It was really low pressure and he steered away from the stereotypical salesmen tactics. 

    The overall money that I was paid out for my car was pretty good. Yes, I could have gotten a bit more by myself but what a lot of people always forget is you have to look at the amount of time you spent trying to sell your car. I saved a lot of time going this route, so a slight decrease in price is totally fine with me. 

    Most people always ask would you use a service again. Yes, in this case I would use this company if I had another car to sell. I am praying that won't be for a long time though because I just purchased my new Prius.

    Selling my car to cash for cars was a superb decision. I was actually surprised when I heard about the service. Honestly, I didn't even know a company like this existed.
    I was pretty ecstatic when I found the company online, and was even more so when I heard what they would offer me. Let's just say they gave me a more than fair offer for my car.

    I enjoyed a few different aspects of the service. One thing I really liked was the speed. Everything happened all within the same day something that would not have been possible selling any other way. I also thought that they had a nice group of people working at the company and they all treated me nicely. I would definitely suggest cash for cars to anyone looking to sell a car. They've won over my respect and I think others should give the company a try. Itís just so much easier then selling on your own.

    Since I was no longer using my Lexus (its engine died and has become totally useless to me) I decided to sell it. I needed money fast and what more better way for me to get money than sell my car that I no longer use.

    Had to search for a place where I could sell my car and I found Cash for Cars San Diego.  During my visit to their location, I immediately spoke to their manager and he gave me a reasonable quote quickly.  I left the place with a huge smile because I got the money I need and that I was able to dispose of my useless car. It was so easy to sell my car that I suggest you guys should check this place out!

    Selling to cash for cars was seriously the easiest experience. This is really a great place. Service is good, and convenience was definitely a big bonus. Will be back here again soon.

    I originally called another junk car place to pick up my old Toyota pickup.  They quoted me a fair price over the phone, but when they showed up to pick up my truck, they backed down on the offer, and tried to give me HALF of what they said in the phone conversation. I don't like this type of thing.

    When I was given a price by Will from cash for cars i was told this would happen, and he was right. I asked the other company to leave and called Will back up. Even though Will didn't give me as much as the other company said he would. He did honer the original price he gave over the phone. I respect that.

    Going to cash for cars to sell my vehicle was a bright decision. I was pretty skeptical at first and wasn't really sure what to expect from the whole "cash for cars" thing. It was a lot different than I expected and actually ended up being super professional. The operator who spoke with me on the phone was polite and scheduled an appointment for me later in the week. A member of their staff came up to Oceanside and even though they were a little bit late, they were very friendly and professional and called me ahead of time to give me a heads up. My car wasn't running so they ended up getting it towed for me (which was completely free of charge).

    I wasn't really sure how this whole thing worked, but I gave them a call anyways. I asked them to come out to give me a price instead of doing it over the phone.  I'm not sure who I spoke to on the phone but Will is the guy that came out to my house. I thought it was a joke when he offered cash until he actually pulled the money out of his pocket. My car doesn't even run but he still wanted it. Cool down to earth guy. Easy to work with.

    I worked with these guys last Friday and it was an awesome experience. My Aunt needed to get rid of a car that had been sitting in her garage for about 10 years. I called around to a few different places in San Diego and had offers all over the place. I even had a company that wanted ME to PAY them to come pick it up. When i first called cash for cars they offered me just $800.  I told them i had spoke to another Cash for Cars type company that had offered $1000 and would pay cash. When i told them this, they not only matched the price, but gave us another $200 more.  My aunt was happy to just finally have the extra garage space and ended up splitting the money with me. Pretty stoked i ran across this company.

    I drove to the address listed for the company, assuming they would want to see the car. The address does not exist. Not sure how they got away with that. I called, answered basic questions about my car.  Stars for getting back to me quickly. They didn't just offer hundreds less than other places. It was thousands less. Don't recommend. Definitely got extremely low balled, and they don't even look at the car. That's weird right away.

    I had this old clunker sitting in my yard quite frankly I thought I was stuck with it. I began getting notices from the city that I needed it gone. This resulted in me rushing and looking for a way to sell it. I heard the ad on the radio for Cash For Cars San Diego and decided to call them. They assured me they would buy my car from me. Score! I really was ecstatic that someone actually wanted my piece of junk car and I'm super thankful that they purchased it from me. A cool bonus was I didn't even have to have it towed to them. They have tow truck drivers that work for them so they paid me and picked up the car all at the same time. Awesome guys, just awesome. If I have to get rid of another junk car I'll be giving you a holler.

    Cash for Cars San Diego is the only business I trust when it comes to selling vehicles - whether it is slightly used or even a junk one. Usually, when you sell used or junk vehicles, you would expect it to be a difficult deal to make, however, with this company it was never a difficult thing for me.

    Dealing with this company is seamless and I have never encountered any other company that is as good as them. It is a pleasure to work with them and they are very professional. Moreover, the staff has an excellent grasp when it comes to providing customer service. Most of all, they always provide a good price. I find no reason to go to anywhere else.

    I had an old Buick Sedan that had catastrophic engine failure last winter. A HUGE oil leak that ended up destroying my whole engine. I kept putting off getting it taken care of or getting it towed to a junk yard.  I had the truck parked out side my brothers house. It had been sitting for awhile. Last week i finally got a nice letter from the city of San Diego that read something like, get this off the road in the next 48 hours or we will be writing you a court summons.  My brother helped me out by giving me a list of numbers and this cash for cars company happened to e on the list. I got more then what i would have got at the junk yard. Plus i didn't have to pay a tow truck company to come get it.

    The old focus was giving me trouble again because the engine was knocking. I thought on whether I should invest, yet again on repairs or get rid of it. I found Cash For Cars San Diego while looking online and called them to get a little more information. I worked with Donald who was super cool, calm guy, yet professional at all times. The laid back service is what appealed to me and Donald gave me two options to keep the car or get rid of it. Throughout the entire process he wasn't pushy, and honestly he wanted us to be happy, which is not your typical sales person. Traits like this hard to come by and I just wanted to commend the company for the way they do business. Don't forget to ask for Donald because he definitely helped me out.

    I´ll become father soon again and me and my wife decide to sell our car and buy something like a van to be more comfortable.

    I was going to sell it to other people but i dont know why i just didn´t feel comfortable with them. With Cash for Cars guys i made the best deal for my car. We made a fair deal for both; the staff made everything fast, clear, legit and the most important for my is that they pay right away.

    Thank you guys!

    I just spent part of my summer in Southern California with my sister.  I drove out there but decided, while there, that it was time for a change in vehicle and started looking to sell my car.  I didn't realize what a hassle this was going to be and how much you could get ripped off. The online sites weren't working for me and a friend suggested this place. I had received a few offers already and can tell you that Cash for Cars offered (and paid) well above the numbers I had been hearing, even from Carmax. They were professional and efficient and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

    i just called this place 30 minutes ago and the girl on the phone answered and it started out smooth until it got down to the numbers and their offer came in $800 lower than another offer i had. Thats just too much ...i usually don't leave bad reviews but this was ridiculous. I felt that i was being taken advantage of. Anyway...not to go on and on but i was expecting a little higher and it didnt happen.

    At first I wasn't really sure how this service worked but I decided to give them a call anyway. They were very friendly and professional.  Since I couldn't really drive my car to them, they sent a tow truck to me to pick it up. The driver of the tow truck ended up paying me the money that was promised. Smooth and easy all around.

    This place gave me the lowest offer from two other places that I tried. I was disappointed.

    Cash For Cars made the sale of my car extraordinarily easy. They had someone out to my place to buy my car in 30 minutes from the time that I called them. The service was insanely quick. I really never fathomed selling a car could be so easy but it really was. If you told me a year ago that I could sell my car like this I would have thought you were kidding. With cash for cars I know you'll get fast service that much I can guarantee. As far as the price I got a pretty fair deal on it. I'm thankful for the service and you guys definitely earned my respect.

    Listen up Yelp these guys are legit. William is a straight shooter, when I called he got straight to the point and let me know what he would pay me for my broken down car. He knew an immense amount about cars, and knew exactly what was wrong with mine. It seems he has a thorough background in cars, and it was comforting that he knew what he was talking about.

    I called them Wednesday, and they arranged to meet me on Thursday in order to purchase my car. I told them the mileage, and that it wasn't running and he came prepared. When he got to my place he did the paperwork, and paid me it probably took ten minutes. Then he had the car out of my place within the hour, so prompt service.

    If you want to sell a car for sure check out cash for cars becuase I'm fairly confident they will treat you well like they did for me.

    First to Review

    I wanted to drop by and let everyone know I had a tremendous experience at Cash for Cars San Diego. I called them yesterday, and they came and purchased my car the very same day. I feel the speed of service was very fast, as I know if I were to try and sell it on my own it would have taken weeks to months. In addition, I liked the employee who inspected my car he was very thorough. For instance, he walked me through every detail and explained how he was coming up with the price on my car. He wasn't just blindly throwing up numbers, which helped reassure me I was receiving a fair value for my vehicle. Overall, I felt the company did a great job, as they helped me sell my car in a prompt manner.
    Lastly, I called this company right after going to Carmax, and they did offer me a better price. So if you're looking to go that route I'd suggest at least seeing what these guys can offer.

    Moving from another state to San Diego and not knowing many places to go to sell my car I'm glad I found this place. I've tried Craigslist and putting my car on every site imaginable but it just wasn't working for me. I wasn't getting enough value for my car and it was frustrating.

    I hopped on yelp and my searches brought me to Cash for Cars.

    When I say this was right on time, I mean it! The customer service was outstanding and the best part is, they were able to give me an amount that I believed was fair.

    If you're looking to sell your car and avoid the hassle of using other alternatives go on over to Cash for Cars. You'll be greeted like a long-lost friend, with a warm smile and maybe even a hug.

    So.... On my way to a vacation in Disney Land, and we decided to visit my U.S. Navy buddy for drinks. He was taking forever like usual and said to meet him at this place called cash for cars. So I asked Siri to take me there and we went. My wife and I knew right away he was selling one of his cars (he had 4). I told him dude, "these places rip you off".


    These people were so nice! They were very honest with their business and fully explained everything to all of us, even though my wife and I had nothing to do with the transaction. All of us were surprised on how much he got.

    I am in the same business as them but with consumer electronics (Apple products, computers, phones), and I have to say I learned some things from them.

    I used to hate the process of selling my car, until I discovered this place.
    If you're looking to get the most money for your used car, definitely check out Cash For Cars in San Diego!
    These guys quoted me a much higher trade in and sale price for my car than any other dealer in the area and getting a quote from their website was extremely easy.
    Their staff was very knowledgable, helpful, and supportive throughout the entire process.
    Best of all, they're open 7 days a week (which works nicely with my usually conflicting work schedule).

    It's safe to say I'm very happy with the service they provided and have already recommended them to a few of my friends in the area.
    If your car has been in an accident or you're just looking to get the biggest bang for your buck, DEFINITELY check these guys out!

    If I only knew that selling my tired heap would be this easy to dispose of--at a fair price--I would have done it much sooner. The folks at Cash for Cars in San Diego are not just friendly but very knowledgeable. They take pride in giving you the facts and in a speedy fashion. They certainly know their stuff..

    Open seven days a week, the Cash for Cars operation is smooth and efficient. I was in and out in a flash and got the cash without any hassles.

    I was very satisfied with my dealings with Cash for Cars. The first thing worth noting is their website- I browsed their website before I decided to call. In fact, I would say that the website was the reason that I ended up calling them in the first place.  The website gave me a great idea of what to expect in my call, though two things in particular were important to me. One was that I did not need to give out any information that was personal or overly detailed. They ask for the make/model/year of the car, its condition and my zip code. That is all. The second thing that made me decide to call was that I get the quote right away, no waiting, no callbacks, and a firm price. The site also offers the option to submit your information online, if calling isn't your thing.
    When I did call Cash for Cars, I got exactly what I was expecting. The fellow was friendly and asked only a few questions before giving me a quote. He even offered to pick up the car from states away (and offered me more money if I could get it there on my own). Overall, these guys have a really good thing going. I recommend you get a quote at Cars for Cash before looking anywhere else, it's the fastest, most convenient car sale you'll ever manage to get!

    Well, that was quite a terrific experience.  I called cash for cars, they fulfilled all of their promises and treated me quite well overall.  In my particular case I had a smashed car and kept thinking how in the world am I going to get rid of this car?  I resorted to yelp and found Cash for Cars.  I called them and they actually said they wanted the car.  I was thrilled to hear that!  Anyways, now I can have my spot back in the driveway and my crashed car is gone.  Yay!  Thanks Cash for Cars, I don't know what I would have done without you.

    I recently went through the process of selling my car, and had a fine experience using cash for cars in San Diego. They exceeded my expectations and paid me a very good amount for my car. I couldn't really expect much more from them, they did everything they said they would plus paid me actual cash for my car. I'd recommend them to other yelpers. At the very least give them a shot because you're not obligated to sell them your car.

    I sold my car to cash for cars in San Diego recently and it was such a great experience. William was an extremely nice guy, whose intention was to help me sell my car, and get me a fair price for it. He was experienced, and seemed like he had done this a million times before. I also felt he had a great personality and was overall pleasant to deal with. He didn't ask any unnecessary questions, he wasn't very pushy at all, and left the decision to sell up to me. That was a major bonus, I hate when someone is trying to hard sell me and William definitely avoided this. He managed to get right down to business, and made selling my car extremely easy. I definitely recommend this company they are the best. Thank you so much William, best of luck to you and your family.

    Super cool, called them got a quote, got paid all in one day. Everyone was right this is a legit place to call when you want to sell your car. To echo what Charisma said cash for cars offered me a better price than that of Carmax. So in short, give'em a call and see what they can offer you.

    When my car was totaled and the insurance payout wasn't enough to get a decent car, my husband's father gave us an 86 buick in very poor condition - but since we needed a 2nd car and it was free, we took it. Finally it got to the point that the buick was breaking down all the time and we were constantly having it towed and repaired so after calling numerous dealerships about trading it in for something and after even getting told that "no one will take that car" from one dealership we found cash for cars and they were SO wonderful. They understood our situation and gave us more than we expected for our trade, even in the poor condition it was. Now we have a reliable car with an affordable monthly payment and we couldn't be happier. I will recommend them to everyone!!

    Cash for Cars is as good as it gets...the best car-selling experience I've ever had.  The staff is highly attentive and all of my questions were answered. They were trustworthy and made me feel comfortable. Highly recommended.

    These guys are by far the best on the market. I stopped by there on a Sunday afternoon after seeing four other dealers that weekend and honestly I couldn't be happier. The first thing that stood out to me was costumer service, the staff was happy to assist and made the process simple and extremely easy to comprehend. After discussing all the details I was offered a quote twice as high as any of the other dealer's offers. I never thought selling a car could be this easy. If you're in the market for selling your used car, even if it's a piece of junk, Cash For Cars is definitely the way to go!
