Established in 1974.

We are the original Cash For Cars in San Diego, California. Cash For Cars was founded in 1974 by William Bustos, he had a vision to make the auto selling experience as easy as possible.  Why did William start the company? He wanted to start the company because trying to sell a car for cash can be extremely tedious. A lot of ordinary people do not have time for it, and would rather sell it to a reputable company that they can trust. So, we created an awesome system to satisfy these people and ultimately get them paid quickly, and without all of the fuss of a normal car sale.

Additionally, William being in the car industry would often have people come up to him and state "How can I sell my car" his answer was always put up a newspaper ad and many would tell him they already tried and failed. He knew he needed to fill this gap and that is why he created cash for cars. His inspiration came from the people and he will always work for the people to make sure they are satisfied.

Reviews on Cash For Cars

Angel M. | 2015-04-19

I needed to sell my car quickly, and online ads just weren't cutting it. No private seller was interested in my  car because the exterior paint was faded, and the car had some scratches on it. I really wanted to get rid of it. I was getting super impatient and a friend told me about Cash For Cars down in San Diego. The service was awesome! No hassles, and they were very, very nice. They didn't care about the car being dirty, and having scratches on it.

Christina C. | 2015-04-19

Well, I just sold my 2004 Honda Civic to Cash For Cars. I took it to Carmax in San Diego, but I thought I could do better than the offer Carmax gave me. I then called Cash For Cars, and they sent someone named William out to my location and he looked at the car and gave me what I felt was a fair price. I'm happy I chose to do business with them! :)

Shari D. | 2015-04-17

Amazing Service! I had originally tried to sell my car to CarMax and I didn't get the right offer from them. So I tried my luck and started searching online which actually brought me to cash for cars. The service was prompt, the staff was professional and I got paid cash. Great experience all around.

Diana B. | 2015-04-13

Well this company has five star reviews for good reason. Incredible customer service, great offers for your car, and an all-around streamlined process. Let me just put it this way, selling a car has never been this easy. I phoned cash for cars, they setup a place and a time and came and bought my car from me.

The actual inspection process was so quick. They sent William out to look at my car, and he just gave it a quick walk around. He started up the car, and then presented me with an offer. A very fair offer I must say, so I obviously accepted it.  

Will took all of the paperwork needed with him, had me sign a few things paid me the money for the car. He was super kind, and even went directly out of his way to help me. I accidentally left my garage clicker in the car, and he made a second trip just to bring it back to me. A great experience, at a company that I will be using again and again. I'm never going back to the normal private sale, cash for cars is the spot for me from here on out.

Jason R. | 2015-04-13

I wanted to sell a car I had sitting around but really didn't want to deal with selling it via private party methods such as Craigslist.  I found this company cash for cars online and I'm satisfied that I did because they really made things easy. The staff member I spoke with was very professional, and the appraiser of my car was extremely friendly as well. Very simple and fast service.

Breanna G. | 2015-03-25

I'm in love with this place! 3 months ago my five year old car started to give out on me I decided not to
fix it and just want to be rid of the headache. I had no idea how I was going to sell it considering it was
having some serious engine issues. I called cash for cars and spoke with a Jamie over the phone, whom
was very friendly. They gave me a price for my car right over the phone. I thought that it was pretty fair
and told them I accepted. Next, they got me an appointment where they would actually come to me. So,
I didn't even have to leave my house to get my car sold. I really enjoyed the simplicity, and friendliness
of the staff. Would certainly sell again to cash for cars.

Latresa M. | 2015-03-18

Super awesome experience, those are the words I'd use describe how I felt about the service cash for cars  provided for me. This company is really at the top of their game, and they really work with you to help you out as much as humanly possible.

I called them because I had a spare car lying around, I was getting fed up with it. They gave me a quote right over the phone, and they even got me an appointment all at once. The workers were friendly and talked me through how everything would work on the phone. Very simple, very friendly company. I just never thought selling my car could be such a great experience, but I guess you learn new things everyday.

Damon K. | 2015-03-11

A short time ago I worked with cash for cars and they worked with me to have my car sold. It was the easiest car sale ever, and it almost seemed to good to actually be true. They offered me a very good value for my 2007 Mazda 3, and I got to skip all of the inconveniences of a private car sale. I spent around 15 minutes working with them and the end result was me getting paid cash for my car. The coolest aspect was they even came to me, I'm over in La Jolla, CA and they made the trip out to my location. So, I didn't even need to drive my vehicle over to them. The guy working for them was also really nice to be around, very welcoming and friendly.

Angela K. | 2015-03-10

My experience using Cash for Cars was an excellent one.  This was an experience truly worthy of a five star rating. I went online to the website filled out the form for a quote. They called me back immediately and gave me an offer. One that I thought was super fair for the condition my vehicle was in. I accepted the offer that they gave me, and the phone receptionist got me setup with an appointment immediately. They had someone out at my location, and after a quick drive around the block and a look around the vehicle they gave me the money for the car. After payment, they walked me through how to do the paperwork, which they took care of for me on the spot.  Easy, painless way for you to sell a car and I think you should definitely give them a chance to buy your car. It turned out wonderfully for me.

Ann E. | 2015-03-09

Sold my car to cash for cars a couple of days ago and have to say I'm pleased with the process.
Everything was simple, and easy and I ended up getting paid cash. It couldn't have been much easier and
thought I would just say thanks for making my life a bit easier!

Caleb W. | 2015-03-07

I'm not even sure where to start the whole experience was awesome. Well, I guess I'll start off by
thanking Sarah who was so helpful. She was so helpful, and so willing to assist me with everything that
I needed. She was great over the phone, positive attitude great phone skills. The type of person you
want to deal with on the phone, an actual professional who was actually trained to treat customers well.
Although, it wasn't just that, she was actually super genuine, and seemed to truly care about the issue
my car was having. She immediately offered her advice as to what I should do, and how their company
would be able to service me.
I listened to Sarah's advice and she had my car setup to get purchased right over the phone, and setup
for that very same day. She told me they would be sending out an individual named Mike. Well, Mike
came and he delivered. He was great as well, he got the whole deal taken care of. He had me sign a few
documents and explained to me what exactly I was signing which I really appreciated.
I'd totally work with them again.

Chelsea A. | 2015-03-06

One of the best companies I have ever dealt with.

A couple weeks ago I was dreading the task of selling my car because I knew that it was going to be a struggle. For me, selling a car always involved a bunch of phone calls, and a bunch of random people calling me at all hours of the night. As you can see, it was certainly something I was not looking forward
to. But, then something great occurred while I was watching TV an ad for cash for cars came through, when I saw the ad I immediately called.

The company was fast, courteous and all around great to work with. It really could not have gone much better than it did. Plus, instead of dealing with dozens of calls and inquires about my car I only had to deal with one (the call to cash for cars). My car was sold within 45 minutes of receiving my appraisal over the phone. You're probably amazed by the timing, I was surprised myself. From the moment I called them, to the moment the whole deal was done only 45 minutes had passed. I thought that was
insanely impressive props on the response time.

It's evident that Will and the whole group at cash for cars care about customer service, and they seem to really truly care about all of their clients. This is a fine example of a company that gets business because of their sheer effort to keep customers satisfied. I know I'll be spreading the word to all of my friends.

Rasheed B. | 2015-03-02

I just had the most terrific experience sell my car to cash for cars. A+ service, they went above and beyond to make it as easy as possible for me to sell my car. They appraised my car on the same day that I called them and what made it even better was the fact that they actually went over to my location. I didn't have to drive all around looking for the place.

The person that actually evaluated the car was extremely pleasant to be around. He was very energetic, and kind. Plus it was evident he was a true professional. He knew all about the car, and the engine, and mechanical problems etc.

I am happy with how everything went and I would surely sell my car to them if need be in the future.

Scott H. | 2015-02-28

Much better than going to CarMax. I would 100% recommend you take your vehicle here when you need to sell it. They were extremely quick, and they were very honest with me as well. Typically the term car dealer has a negative connotation that comes along with it. Cash for cars disproves that stereotype, they were quick, honest, and very thorough. You can tell that they are truly professionals and it definitely beats dealing with all the random strangers from craigslist.

Ella J. | 2015-02-26

There's definitely a reason why cash for cars has so many 5 stars reviews. William, Stacey and the rest of the group are fast, and extremely honest. It really isn't easy selling a car but cash for cars does a marvelous job making it much simpler. One aspect of the service that I really thought was great was the fact they didn't even flinch over my high mileage vehicle. My car had 200,000 miles on it, albeit it was a newer car it still had incredibly high miles. Most people on craigslist wouldn't even come close to a car like that, but Cash for Cars didn't care at all.

I'll always come here when selling my car, and will definitely recommend to my friends who are either planning on trading in a car or just looking to sell one.

Jordan K. | 2015-02-25

Janet was awesome and really went out of her way to help me get a great price for my car. At first, I must admit I was a bit skeptical about how the whole thing worked because I'd never actually sold a car in this fashion before, but Janet reassured me about everything. She was tremendously helpful and very easy to deal with. I will definitely use them again when I need to sell my car again!

Mallary T. | 2015-02-23

So, Cash for Cars just came over to my house and paid me for my car.
Wow! What a relief.

My '97 Nissan was old 10 years ago, and by now it was pretty much just all kinds of awful. It was embarrassing to drive and especially unprofessional for me to commute in to work. A new co-worker asked me the other day if this was my first car from high school. And he was serious.
That's when I knew it was about time to let go of my car.

I headed onto the web, and with a little bit of searching around, I discovered these awesome folks. I especially enjoyed working with Sally, very thoughtful, friendly
and helpful woman, who was very reassuring, and was a huge help through the sale. This is one of the best companies I've worked with in a while.

Keep up the splendid job and I'll definitely be back here again when my next car begins to deteriorate!!

Eman E. | 2015-02-23

I had an all around excellent experience working with Cash for cars. I am definitely satisfied with the outcome, and if need be I would give them the option to buy my car again.

My story goes like this. My car was fairly new, a 2008 Acura but it had a couple of scratches, and I had rolled back into a pole so it had a small ding in the back. So, the car had a few turn offs which would have kept the average individual from purchasing it. I searched all around and came across CarMax, whom I thought would give me a good sum of money for the car. Well, I was wrong the offer Carmax made me was not acceptable so I kept searching until finally I found . I just filled out the form on the website, and within minutes I was given a quote for my car. Yes, you heard me right, the company called me back within minutes which is incredibly fast customer service.

To my surprise they gave me a great price for car, one of which I just couldn't refuse. They paid me, walked me through all the steps with the paperwork, and everything was taken are of. The transaction was extremely easy.

If you're on verge of selling your car, I'd certainly urge you to take the leap of faith and give cash for cars a chance. Best part of all is the quote, and appraisal are all no-obligation meaning you don't have to accept it unless you want to. Which took a lot of pressure off of you, as the seller.

Susan L. | 2015-02-15

Can I say that the service this company gave to me was second to none! I have never used this kind of service before, so it is understandable why I was reluctant to sell my 2013 Prius. But after talking to their account manager, I then became comfortable to proceed with the sale. They never felt short in informing me with every detail, especially with the date and time they would come to collect my car as well as every inch of the process.  The collectors were courteous and carried their tasks without fuss. Overall, I am very happy with their service and very much happy with the money I received.

Beau P. | 2015-02-14

So happy I chose cash for cars. That's how I felt when I finished the transaction, and they towed away my vehicle. One part of me was a bit sad, because I did like the car a lot, but I knew it was time to let it go. It's funny because I don't think anyone else would have actually bought this car. It was on its last leg, and it was making loud noises when the engine was on so something was drastically wrong. Cash for
Cars was not fazed by the issue and still bought it. Pretty, awesome. I'm glad I was able to let the car go and I really owe it all to your company thanks a lot.

Hanbit P. | 2015-02-13

Not long ago I sold my used car to this company. They were very fair with me and came up with a great offer for my less than perfect car. My car was a bit of a mess, but they really didn't care about that they bought it in the condition that it was in. If I had another car to sell I would certainly give them the first chance at buying it.

Robert T. | 2015-02-12

Was driving around Monday and my car started acting up, I was pretty certain the motor was going on
it. I did not feel comfortable driving it anymore, and my car was parked in a parking lot. If it stayed there
overnight I knew it would have gotten towed. I hopped right online which got me to cash for cars. They
were fantastic from the start. Cheryl, one of the workers over there arranged for someone to come out
and check out the car. They met me in the parking lot, gave the car a quick check up and then paid me
cash for my car. It was awesome, they even had the car towed immediately. Cash for cars helped me out
in a tight situation, which I am super grateful for.

Brenon K. | 2015-02-10

Sold my car to cash for cars, and it was so quick and simple. The employees here are fantastic. I called them on a Thursday afternoon when I had decided I no longer wanted my car anymore. The staff members quickly helped me get through the process and gave me a quote. They had an appointment arranged for me the same day and came out and paid me.

No wasted time, straight to the point. By far the easiest way to sell an old car. If you don't have the time, or are not interested in wasting weeks or even months trying to sell a car then I think cash for cars is the right option for you. I mean, selling my car the same day is pretty amazing. I love everything you guys have going on over here, and wish your company the best of luck in the future.

Casey B. | 2015-02-08

I really was unsure of the proper way to sell a car. I didn't have the time to try and figure it out. I did a bit of searching and ended up here. These fine folks managed all of the nitty gritty tough stuff that you have to do when selling a car. All I had to do was sign some paperwork and they gave me the payment. They took my car away at the same moment. Quick and professional.

Will F. | 2015-02-07

Finally sold my 2006 infinity all with the help of cash for cars, I couldn't have done it without them.  My car had been in a minor accident, a little bit of damage on the front bumper. Albeit, the damage was minor no one wanted to purchase it from me, I understood why but it was getting incredibly frustrating.

In panic mode I started to do some research online and found Cash For Cars. The company let me know that the damage would not be an issue and assured me that they would still purchase the vehicle with it. It sounded like the perfect deal to me, so I had them come see the car. After a couple of minutes I'm getting paid and Cash For Cars is towing away my car. I give the company a lot of props for being so quick, and purchasing my car even with the damage. This company is the real deal so if you have a car for sale you should really consider using them.

Monica S. | 2015-02-06

The service was quick. I spoke with one of the agents on the phone and within two hours I had someone picking up my car. The offer I got was pretty fair, and definitely right around what I was hoping to get for the car. The guy they sent out to do the appraising was extremely polite. He was easy to talk with, and he actually struck up some interesting conversation. Also I just wanted to add their wasn't any random added fees or anything like that.

Sara D. | 2015-02-05

When I first heard of Cash for Cars I really didn't know whether I should use them for selling my car. But, being an outgoing individual I almost always try everything. I convinced myself I had nothing to lose and decided to try them out.

I have to say they had a very professional demeanor and were well organized. After speaking with them they had someone come out to my location (yes, they actually came to me talk about convenient). The person looked the car over the car and gave me the payment.

I sold my car so fast, I don't see any other scenario where I would have had my car sold this quick.

If you want a quick sale I urge you to give cash for cars a try. If you're on the edge about the service give them a chance.

Carol R. | 2015-02-03

I was watching television and a commercial for cash for cars popped up. I wanted to sell my car, but I
also wanted to receive a reasonable price for it. I thought the company looked professional based on the
quality of their commercial so I chose to try their service out. I was immediately quoted an excellent
price which I ended up selling the car for. The best part of all is they even beat carmax's offer for me.

Ashae J. | 2015-02-03

I had an amazing car selling experience with Cash For Cars. This company really knows their stuff. They paid me cash for my car and they were able to arrange to buy it the very same day. I was pretty impressed with the service because my car wasn't even running. So, essentially they paid me for my old car. I thought I would have had to pay to get this thing towed away, but instead I'm the one who ended up getting the cash. I can't express how thrilled I am that I found cash for cars. This company ROCKS. I would use them again without any hesitation.

robyn j. | 2015-02-02

I highly recommend selling your car to cash for cars. I work and I really didn't have time in my busy schedule to deal with selling it so I made the bright decision to use this service. It was really as quick, and truly as easy as a phone call.

I'm sure most of you are wondering how exactly everything worked out, so I'll give you a play by play of the entire process. I called them and a gentleman answered the phone. I wasn't exactly sure what the place did so I asked "Do you buy cars?" he responded "Yes, we buy cars" and very kindly asked me what type of car I was selling, what was wrong with it (if anything). They wrote down all of the basics about
the car and came up with a quote for me. I received a great offer, and they even arranged for a time to meet me that satisfied my busy schedule.

I would use them all over again if I had another car to sell. Thank you cash for cars, I'm extremely satisfied with how I was treated. I also thoroughly enjoyed the level of professionalism of your company. I will definitely be singing praises about your company to my friends.

steve a. | 2015-02-01

I saw the ad for cash for cars when I was watching television last week. The ad was clever, and I did need to sell my car so I chose to inquire with the company and find out about how much they would give me for my 2007 Honda CRV.

When I called them they were more than helpful. It was actually pretty surprising because the person who I worked with actually seemed like she enjoyed her job, and really wanted to help me get the best quote for my car. I spoke with Jamie and she asked me all the required info about my car pretty basic stuff that everyone knows about their automobile. I waited about 30 seconds or so Jamie punched some things into the computer, and then politely told me what they would be able to pay me for my car.

I graciously accepted the offer and Jamie scheduled one of their "auto buying agents" to come to my house and get me paid for the car. They showed up, asked for the title, paid me and then took care of all the paperwork with me. Very, very helpful company with a really great process they've developed.

Lynda S. | 2015-01-31

I don't write reviews often, but when I do it is because I feel a company is very
worthy of praising. Let me tell you a little story about how I came to use this
company and why I enjoy their services so much.
It was a couple of days ago and my car started acting strange. I tried to start it but
it just wouldn't turn over. Well, I was in a parking lot and it definitely would have
been towed. I didn't want to dump any more money into the car so I called Cash
For Cars. They brought a tow truck and paid me within the time frame of two
hours. So, from phone call to car sale all that passed was a measly two hours. In
my books that's incredibly fast. I just have to say thank you again for helping me
unload my own car. You guys can't begin to understand how much you helped me.

Michelle P. | 2015-01-29

Went onto and was able to get someone to look at my car the same day. Dang! They are quick!

Mike showed up to my place, at the proper time that we had agreed on. He was well mannered, and was very bright. He was a car whiz that's for sure, he knew everything about my car. He did a quick walk around the car, started it up and then gave me a price for my car. In total it took about 15 minutes for me to sell my car to them.

I'm happy with how it worked out and they made it very quick. I would not have been able to sell my car this fast anywhere else.

Darya D. | 2015-01-28

Originally I had gotten my car appraised at CarMax in San Diego. Although, carmax gave me a decent offer I felt like it could be beat. So, after searching around awhile online I found Cash For Cars. I called them and they gave me an offer rather quickly. The offer was better then that of CarMax so I told them to come out and buy the car. They paid me, did some paperwork and that was it. Awesome service and staff!

Ana V. | 2015-01-27

I'd never heard of a company like cash for cars until a friend told me about them. I was pretty excited when I first heard about them because even the thought of selling a car gets me all fired up. I called the company and was greeted by a professional over the phone. They jotted down some facts about my car, and told me they were going to get right back to me with an offer. I get a call about five minutes later and they let me know what my car was worth. Well, let's just say the offer was very generous, so generous that I just had to accept.  I just want to end letting everyone know that I did try CarMax, and some other methods like such but they all gave me a low offer. The only company that was able to give me an acceptable price was cash for cars. I can't really think of any negatives about the service they are upfront and do as they say.

Cheri A. | 2015-01-27

William was Great! I had a junky car that I needed to get off my hands. I was such a mess I couldn't even find the title to the car. I sent them a message through their website and explained my situation to them. A bit later I get an email letting me know they would still be able to buy the car. I was happy to get anything for the car. I thought I would be paying someone to remove it for me (yes the car was that ugly).

J M. | 2015-01-25

I sold my vehicle to cash for cars the other day and it was too easy. They gave me an appraisal over the phone and the offer was very fair. They sent an employee out to my place and paid me right there.

They even took care of the paperwork for the Department of Motor Vehicles. It really could not have been easier, and I'm extremely happy at the moment. Cash For Cars I will definitely be selling more cars to your company in the future.

Nikki S. | 2015-01-25

I had an exceptional experience selling my 2004 Audi A4 to this company. The company was very upfront about what they would be able to offer me for my car, and they actually stuck to the offer. They didn't play the typical used car dealer game of quoting high and then trying to low-ball later down the line. They were nice, professional and all around a pleasure to work with. If I had another car to sell I'd use them over again.  
Just a side note: It does help to have the year, make, model and mileage of your car. They will ask you for this when you call.

Nicole A. | 2015-01-23

After realizing that fixing my old car would not be worth the time or headache I contacted Cash For Cars to assist me with the process of removing it. They gave my car a free tow, and they didn't come and haggle down the price. They were upfront and honest about the pricing which I really liked about them. They showed up to my location on time, and quickly. Throughout the entire process they were professional, and friendly. I felt my selling experience was great. I'm glad they were able to purchase my car, because I know of nowhere else that buys cars that are not running.

Selling my car to Cash for Cars San Diego was the right decision. The company handled themselves very
professionally and all around I had a remarkable experience with them. I ended up selling them my 2004
BMW because it had over 100,000 miles on it and I knew something on it was going to break soon. I got
paid for the car and they showed up ready to buy. If you're set on selling your car, and getting paid
quickly I would surely call Cash for Cars.

When I needed to sell old car I did not know where to turn. It was imperative that I was able to sell my car quickly, and I knew a private sale simply would fulfill my needs. Like any wise person would do I began using the internet and came across this company. Honestly, I must admit the cynic in me had me skeptical about everything. But, after dealing with the friendly staff member over the phone my mind was at ease.
They ended up getting me a pretty good amount for my car and worked with me so I was able to sell it at a time that was right for me. Great price, friendly over the phone I highly recommend this company.

Johnson N. | 2015-01-22

I had my car advertised in the local newspaper for a while and I just was getting any bites, no takers. I
was getting pretty annoyed and frankly I was in the mood to just sell it. I was tired of playing the waiting
game. I jumped on the computer and got in touch with cash for cars. They had someone out at my
house in 45 minutes. They really hooked me up, and the service was quick.

Nathan M. | 2015-01-20

After seeing the raving reviews about cash for cars online I decided to contact the company. The reason I was selling is because it just wasn't practical for me to keep the car anymore. I already have one other vehicle and this one was just taking up space. I called the company and the staff was so friendly. They were very willing to assist me, and just asked me a couple of very general questions about the car:
Things like the year, make and model. After getting this information they put me on hold momentarily and came back with an offer. So, I received a quote for my car in less than five minutes which was noteworthy to me. The best part of all was the offer was excellent. I promptly accepted the offer and one of the members of the company paid me for the car. Great process, this is a very promising service and I do think you should give it a spin.

Cassandra G. | 2015-01-20

Cash For Cars San Diego Was Amazing! I needed to get rid of my car as it was having unforeseen
mechanical issues. I called this company and was greeted by a very joyful receptionist. They asked me
a few questions about my car. We setup an appointment and the company rep. checked out the car and
then gave us an offer. The offer was very impressive so I sold it to them. Very low pressure company. I
had a fabulous time using their service. I would highly consider using this company if you need to sell
a car.

Niko L. | 2015-01-18

This company is the best cash for cars in San Diego that's for certain. After looking around I was able to get the best price for my 2004 Honda CRV here. I tried CarMax and other places but cash for cars gave me a much better price. Everyone I interacted with treated me with respect which made it clear that they really did appreciate my business. It is difficult to find places like this now a days it's a hidden gem in San Diego. I'll end by saying If you are looking to sell your car quick I think you'll get the best price here.

Andrew P. | 2015-01-17

What do you do when you have to sell a car? Call Cash For Cars! This is the place you want to call if you are serious about selling your car. I had been struggling pretty seriously trying to sell my car until I came across this service. They made things so easy. I checked out their website and contacted them through the contact form. They gave me a call back within minutes and gave me an irresistible offer for my car. I couldn't be any more pleased. Thank you for making my day and buying my car!

Dana P. | 2015-01-14

I'm happy with the service I received from cash for cars. I phoned them recently because my car was deciding to have a mind of it's own and started really acting up. I got what I feel was a pretty good offer. They made the towing arrangements, got me paid. It was easy plus I got a good deal.

Sarah C. | 2015-01-12

Whew, what a relief! My car is finally sold and it's all thanks to the great bunch of people at cash for cars.They gave me an excellent price for my 2007 Honda Accord. Much,much better than what the new car dealer offered me for it. They were extremely flexible and easy to work with and gave me an accurate price over the phone so they didn't waste any of my time. They gave me a very fair and genuine evaluation and kept me in the loop as to why they were giving me X amount of money for the car.

Roxana B. | 2015-01-05

Initially I tried to sell my 2005 Mercedes through Craigslist but I had little luck. After ten days of trying I was tired of dealing with all of the flakes. I went ahead and did some research online which led me to Cash for Cars San Diego. I contacted them and they came to my location in 1 hour and paid me for my car. I'm very happy with how everything worked out!

Gabriella W. | 2014-12-31

Perfect service deserves a perfect score. Let me just start off by saying I'm an extremely busy person. Quite frankly I didn't want to waste my time looking for someone to come and buy my car. I heard good things about Cash For Cars so I figured it wouldn't hurt to take a chance and see what I could get. They were quick with their quote and the price for the offer was fair. They worked closely with me to help me get it sold. I'm pleased with how smooth the transaction was, and I was also satisfied with the overall customer service.

Michael R. | 2014-12-27

My car had been sitting around the streets for a long period of time. It wasn't running and was about to get towed. I had gotten some warnings on it already. It was imperative for me to be able to sell the car almost immediately. I went online and found cash for cars ( this is the website ) and they told me they would be able to help me out in my situation.

Getting the appointment setup and my car picked up was absurdly easy. I called their phone number and spoke to them. They gave me a time and a price, showed up and paid me. They put all my worries to ease and ended up paying me for a car that was causing me nothing but pain.

I believe this service is a great alternative to a normal car sale. Plus, they were able to purchase the car in it's non-running state. I don't think that would have been possible anywhere else.

Gwenn S. | 2014-12-22

I just sold my car to cash for cars in San Diego and overall I am very happy about how it went. This isn't your average service so I wasn't really sure what to expect. I normally had sold my car through other ways, and had never contacted a cash for cars company before.  Once I called them though, I was very pleased to find out how nice and supportive the staff was.

They picked up the phone instantly when I called and asked a few questions. Next, they put me on hold for a brief moment. They came back and offered me an amount for my vehicle. I felt that the price was very good so I arranged for them to come to me and take a look at the car (yes, they come to you which I thought was really cool).

They arrived right on time, and they paid me the amount we had previously discussed. I was very happy that they didn't try to low ball me or anything of that nature.

They even went through all the paperwork with me, and let me know that if I had any questions they would always be available which is very reassuring.

I'm very glad that I found cash for cars, and I really did love the service. You guys are truly awesome and you made my car selling experience super simple. They delivered exactly what they promised so I couldn't ask for anything more.

Cindy B. | 2014-12-19

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.

John T. | 2014-12-05

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.

Megan W. | 2014-12-03

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).

Mikee P. | 2014-12-01

Cash for cars us fantastic and I recommend it to everyone. The guy named Tony is very friendly, honest and direct to the point. He gave me a good price:)

Jennifer C. | 2014-11-24

Friday night I got in my car tried to start it but no luck. It was evident the car was acting up and I wanted no part in it. I'd been putting repairs in it for sometime and came to the conclusion it was not cost effective anymore to keep the car.

So I did what any smart girl would do and resorted to yelp. I found cash for cars and I called them up. They were nice, and scheduled an appointment to come and take a look at the vehicle (which was awesome because I wasn't planning on driving my that wasn't running lol). When they came to my location they did a pretty routine inspection. They tried to start the car up, looked around the outside for a minute and then they gave me a price.

The price was pretty fair, and the car wasn't running so I took the offer. The service is exactly as advertised, and was extremely simple. If, in the future I had another car that I needed to get rid of I would most likely call this company again.

Mike C. | 2014-11-10

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.

Carl J. | 2014-11-07

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.

Carlos I. | 2014-11-06

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.

Terry K. | 2014-11-05

The Dudes over at cash for cars are super laid back, and they really hook you up. I was driving my bros and I crashed. It is what it is, but I needed to get rid of my ride. I knew selling on my own wasn't gonna cut it because let's be honest who would want to buy a car that was in an accident.

Running out of options I hit up yelp on my cellphone. I knew someone could point me in the right direction. Well, Yelp led me to this legit company, and man am I glad I found these dudes.

Me and my dudes were in a tough situation but man they did it, and pulled through for me. They even brought a tow truck and got it removed for me. So I got paid cash and my car got removed real quick.

Was really simple to use, guy who came was chill and helped me with paperwork and all that other boring stuff. Probably the fastest way to sell a car, and since they helped me when I really needed it I think they deserve a five.

Stay cool guys I'll def. be hitting up all my friends and giving y'all a super solid recommendation.

Lesia C. | 2014-10-31

I was having some car issues and while chatting with a friend she mentioned she heard a commercial for cash for cars San Diego on the radio. I decided to look them up online and found them. I can say for certain that I was extremely satisfied with the service, and treated very respectably.

I'll go ahead and list off numerous reasons why I had such a splendid experience selling my car to them.

1.) Courteous support over the phone. The initial phone call was very professional, and they explained everything I needed to understand about the selling experience, how it works they really wrapped my mind about the whole ordeal because I never sold a car in this fashion before.

2.) Organization. They were extremely organized. They came prepared with all the paperwork, and forms that I needed to fill out to sell the car and take everything out of my name. This was very helpful to me, so I was extremely happy about that.

3.) Positive Attitude. The gentleman that purchased my car had a really upbeat spirit. He was very lively, funny and all around pleasant to work with. He really made the process go by much quicker by participating in conversation with me. It wasn't all about business, he actually seemed to care about me as a customer. I thought this was really cool and should be noted because it doesn't happen every often.

4.) Speed. The service was incredibly fast. I never imagined that it would be possible to call somewhere and have a car sold in like 2 hours. Well, with cash for cars it did happen, the speed was insanely fast. This resembles just how great the customer support is.

I had a blast selling my car to cash for cars, If you're thinking of selling I'd at least see what they can offer you.

Lauren D. | 2014-10-28

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.

Sarah J. | 2014-10-28

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.

Ashley R. | 2014-10-15

I drove a 2000 Toyota Corolla. it broke down at school, I called cash for cars and they came instantly to the location I was at and bought and towed my car. they were there within the hour. the lady I talked to on the phone was very helpful and friendly. they quoted me a price on the phone and their buyer came to me and did all the paperwork and payed me on the spot. great company. highly recommend to anyone trying to sell their car

Kristen W. | 2014-10-13

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.

Jacqueline I. | 2014-10-10

Cash For Cars gave me more than what two other companies were offering me for my '03 Hyundai Elantra. Paper work was completed within 5 minutes, and they were able to haul it away for free. Very professional company, and I'm glad I decided to do business with them.

Dale E. | 2014-09-26

Cash for cars is easiest way to sell a used car. Initially I heard about cash for cars from a friend who had sold a car to them approximately three years ago. So, I decided to go online and get the contact information (if you have trouble finding it the website address is ). I gave them a quick phone call and spoke with Tony who was extremely pleasant over the phone. He asked me some simple questions and then we scheduled an appointment for him to come and see my car. Tony was very flexible and assured me he would be able to meet anytime that I desired. So, I told him 6:30 P.M after I got off work and he made it there right on time.

He also seemed to possess a great deal of knowledge about cars which was reassuring. He knew exactly what was wrong with my car and knew the going rate of fixing something like it etc.

All of this is great and all but the main reason why I chose to work with cash for cars is because they are a legitimate business. These guys are licensed, and they are a member of the Better Business Bureau and have an A+ rating which in my mind is a go ahead to use a company.

On that note be sure to ask for Tony. He was understanding, knowledgeable and skipped all of the B.S. He really helped me out and I'm super glad I found cash for cars.

Steve A. | 2014-08-26

After dealing with Carmax and receiving an offer that I felt wasn't acceptable I decided to look for an alternative solution. After a little research I came across cash for cars. I sold my car to Tony who was nice. Tony didn't play games and he didn't take a lot of time to inspect the car. It seemed he really knew what he was doing as he showed up started the car up and then he gave me his offer. He didn't come with one of those clip boards and start picking on little imperfections in the car.

The offer I was given beat carmax by a fair amount. Obviously it was less then I would have gotten selling it on my own but well worth the convenience. Definitely an option you all should consider when selling your car.

Thank you Tony

Sarah E. | 2014-08-18

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.

Tim E. | 2014-08-10

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

Ben L. | 2014-08-09

Sold my car to Tony who was more than friendly and knowledgeable. He gave me a great price for my car and saved me the trouble of listing it on Craigslist. He came within half an hour and bought it on the spot. I would recommend calling Tony over the competitors.

Jesenia D. | 2014-08-02

Tony was great!! Very nice at arriving at my location gave me a great deal for my 2001 Jetta! I strongly recommend Toni for those who need to get rid of there vehicle!!:)) thanks again Toni!:)

Cheleesa H. | 2014-08-02

A very easy and pleasant experience. We called and with in an hour a very nice gentleman came and gave us a fair deal. We got cash right on the spot. I highly recommend this service.

Carl M. | 2014-07-20

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!

Matthew T. | 2014-01-10

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.


Tommy S. | 2014-01-09

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!

Jane P. | 2014-01-07

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.

Anja P. | 2014-01-06

This is the place to go if you are trying to sell your car! They are open seven days a week and have very convenient hours. If you are tired or unsuccessful selling your car on such websites as craigslist or eBay motors then you should definitely try "Cash for Cars" of San Diego! These guys have been in business for a long time and they are experts!  As other reviewers say -  "they know their stuff there" - and I completely agree!  If you are looking for a place to sell you car, even if it's an older one - this should be your first stop. They definitely have the best quotes in the San Diego area. The whole process doesn't take much time, and you can leave with cash in your hand on the spot!

Ron K. | 2014-01-03

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!

Sarah L. | 2013-12-26

Sold my car to Cash For Cars today, such a great experience! I tried Carmax before and calling the junk yard ( I have a "rough around the edges" car) and had verry low expectations from the start. Then I turned to yelp. So glad that I did. Called them, spoke with Tony, and he said he'd be over in 10-15 minutes. He was! It was so easy. He gave me a fair price for the condition of my car, and paid me cash on the spot. We did the paperwork right there, and he gave me the tip of how to file the Transfer of Ownership online with the DMV, to save me that headache altogether. If I had another one to sell, I would have! Saved me the hassle of Craiglist and trying to find a private party. Thanks for the excellent customer service and the cash too! Heehee.

Samantha W. | 2013-12-04

Quick, easy, and friendly.  Called and sold the car within an hour!

I dealt with the owner (Tony) who was very knowledgeable and very friendly. He seemed so friendly on the phone, but even more so in person - he had a smile the whole time.

He explained what we needed to do next (Pretty much just do a release of liability form on the DMV website) even cracked some jokes while explaining the process. Cash in hand, tow truck coming tomorrow. My husband is so relieved to have this car off his hands and how easy it was. :)

John M. | 2013-11-30

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.

Eric W. | 2013-11-26

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.

Diana B. | 2013-11-13

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!!

Justin W. | 2013-11-12

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!

K H. | 2013-10-21

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.

Sandy B. | 2013-10-01

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.
