How to sell a used Model S?

edited November -1 in General
I am leaving the country at the end of next month and I cannot ship my car so I will need to sell it.
What is a good way to sell it quickly and with minimum hassle? Are there dealers who buy them (I am in Northern CA)?
I am not trying to get the best price for it, but I have a lot to do in the next few weeks and just need to make sure it is sold before I take off.
Thank you for sharing wisdom and experiences.

    Agree, Carmax meets the poster's requirements.

    ST70, was Tesla buying the car outright or were you buying another car?

    Best bet for biggest buck is sell it yourself on Craigslist. Did that with the Subaru after purchasing the Tesla and it worked well, got top price and sold in a week.

    Does anybody know about the Model X charging mileage number at the dotted line before the "trip" mark? The web spec says 351 miles is including the trip mileage as a maximum in total.
  • This is a really problematic situation. I remembered how two years ago I had to leave the country for another country urgently, because my family needed help. At that time I didn't know what to do with my Mercedes, because I was running out of time, and I didn't want to leave the car just like that. Fortunately, then my friend helped out a lot by offering great guys they quickly helped me settle everything and in a short time I was already flying with a good profit from the sale to my relatives
