Customer Question

Someone is interested in selling a 2015 car back to the dealer who sold it. Hopefully he will be offered a reasonable price. My question is: He is going to the dealership tomorrow to see what he will be offered. If it is acceptable, he is going to need
the car until Friday when he is returning from Florida to NY. Is it unreasonable for him to ask that the dealer pick up the car (not far from the house in Florida) on Friday? Or will the dealer see the car tomorrow and expect that the deal be done right then
and there?

the dealer will not be able to cut a check for the car unless it is in their possession. But they may make a deal and allow him to turn it in just before he leaves and pick up a check at the same time, or if they have a need for the car (ideal) they could probably get him a loaner car for the next couple of days.

it would not be unreasonable for him to ask the dealer to pick the car up at the house in three days and make the exchange then? He doesn't want a loaner car, though. Would the dealer probably test drive or inspect it tomorrow?
Expert:  Ted G. replied 1 year ago.

No, that would not be unreasonable, dealers deliver and move cars constantly. I would think with such a new car they will do very little inspection.
