There’s no doubt, Autonation is among the largest used car buyers with a strong online presence in the country. But the big question is: can I get a better offer elsewhere? And does bigger mean better for you? We’re glad you asked!

At Motors on Wheels, we pay more than Autonation. But that’s not all. We offer far superior convenience and better quality customer support. We’re owner operators which means our business is IS our reputation.

How do we buy your car?

You can sell us your pre-owned car or truck using two main ways; trade-in or immediate cash. Let’s take a look at how each of them works:


If you’re selling your used vehicle to purchase a new one or upgrade to a different model, trading it in is an idea you may consider. There are a few benefits that come with this method.

For starters, you enjoy a tax credit on the trade-in value that allows you to apply for whichever vehicle you wish to buy. Besides, the entire buying process is quick and easy with minimal paperwork involved. Just bring the car to us and tell one of our sales reps that you want to trade it in – we’ll take the wheel from there!

Usually, we will test drive it, appraise its value and give you an offer. If you accept it, that offer goes toward the new car you’re looking to purchase. You’ll then sign the car’s title over to seal the deal and drive back home with your new ride. Simple, right?

Sell for cash

When it comes to selling used cars or trucks, prompt, reliable, and satisfactory service is king. At Motors on Wheels, we make the process of buying your car as effortless as possible. We also pay more than Autonation. Our goal is to end up with a win-win scenario for everyone – you part with a vehicle you no longer want; we acquire a quality vehicle from you. What’s more, everything from inspection to title work and pickup is FREE!

Why sell to us?

When it comes to selling a used car in Houston in a fast, secure, profitable, and convenient manner, Motors on Wheels is second to none. Here are a few key reasons to choose us over Autonation.

We pay more than Automation

When it comes to cash offers, Motors on Wheels beats Autonation 7 times out of 10. You got that right! Simply head over to Autonation and have your vehicle assessed and valued based on its condition. Then, bring that offer to us and we’ll be happy to match and even surpass that quote.

And the best part is that you don’t have to wait. We guarantee you will walk away with more money and have it in your hands on the same day.

We have a faster process

We’ve put in place an incredibly fast and streamlined valuation process that can be summed up in three steps.

Start by entering your car’s details into an online form for a quick appraisal. Alternatively, call our toll-free number to book to sell your vehicle.

Bring your vehicle to Motors on Wheels or request our appraisers to come to your location to examine it in person.

We’ll give you a final offer and if you accept it, sign on the dotted line to close the deal.

The entire process can take as little as 30 minutes and you’ll receive a check you can cash out right away.

We pay for your Uber ride home after selling us your car

At Motors on Wheels, we treat our customers well because we believe in creating relationships that last beyond the day we do business. As such, we’re happy to pay for your Uber ride home after selling us your car. Whether you live in Houston, San Antonio, or Austin, one of our associates will give you a FREE ride home.

Our customers speak highly of us

Numbers don’t lie. We’ve bought more than 20,000 vehicles and maintained an industry-high customer rating of 4.9-stars and more than 940 reviews on Google. But you need to trust our word right off the bat!

Here are a few reviews from verified customers some of whom have visited Autonation and CarMax but ended up selling their car to Motors on Wheels:


“First time selling a vehicle and the experience could not have gone better! I sold a 16 year old car and even though they don’t typically work with vehicles this old, they offered us an extremely fair price, probably more than we deserved. They were quite busy, but had us in and out in less than 30 minutes! Because of the pandemic, they handled the paperwork for us inside while we waited in our vehicle. We signed the papers outside, we were given copies of all documents, and handed the check on the spot! I had an appointment with Car Max, but figured a small business would treat us better and we were right! Thank you, Chad and Motors On Wheels! (Also, the front desk receptionist was pleasant and professional!)

 “Nice and professional. The whole process of selling my car is really fast. They called an Uber ride for us after we sold the car. The quote I got from them is better than the one that I got from other places.”

Yaxian Pan, San Antonio, TX. 


“They gave me offer better than car max. Really good place, JAD & JAWAD were so helpful.”

Fayez, Houston, TX.  


“I sold my car here. The best service i have ever had here in the states. They will give you the best price. They gave a price better than CarMax. Thank you Jawad and Jad.”

Ahlam Alghanem, Austin, TX. 

Types of cars and trucks that we buy

We generally buy all types of cars and trucks that aren’t older than 10 years. Still, if you’re selling a car or truck that’s older than 10 years, bring it to us and we’ll give you a fair offer based on its condition. A clean maintenance log can also come in handy for older cars.

We’ve been in business for over 15 years, and we’ve bought nearly 15,000 cars and 5,000 trucks from people like you in Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and the surrounding areas of Katy, Sugarland, and Clearlake.

What paperwork do I need to sell my car?

We need to see your car title to prove ownership. But if there’s a loan or bank financing on your car, we’ll only need the car’s registration that’s in your name. Once we have these documents, we’ll take the process from there and hand you a check in less than half an hour.

Please note that if you owe money on the car, we’ll have to wait until we get the title from your lender before sending you a check for the balance you’re owed. That means the process might take longer depending on how responsive your bank is.

Sell your car for the value it deserves!

Ready to sell your used car or truck? You don’t have to get stuck waiting for hours and walking away with nothing impressive to show for it.
