A Head-to-Head Comparison
Driveo vs Competition and Other Ways to Sell Your Car
How does Driveo stack up against competition and other ways to sell your car when the time comes? The table below summarizes all the advantages of Driveo compared to our competition, trading your vehicle in, or trying to sell it privately on your own.
Driveo Is a Better Way to Sell Your Car!
Online Quote or In-Person
If you want to sell your car to our competition, in most cases you have to physically go with your car to a physical location so they can perform their own inspection of your vehicle before they’ll work up a quote. This is inconvenient, to say the least, because there is often a line of people ahead of you who have to be dealt with before they get to you. At Driveo, you can get a fast quote online without ever leaving the comfort of your home!
How Long the Quote is Good for
Your initial quote from Driveo is good for 30 days, giving you plenty of time to explore alternative methods for selling your car. By contrast, when you get a quote from our competition it’s good for only seven days or even less with some companies. This is hardly enough time to explore other options for selling your car.
Method of Payment
If you sell your car to most car buying companies you will be paid with a bank draft, which is not the same as a regular check. Theoretically, a bank draft is supposed to be based on available funds that clear quickly, but in practice you’re looking at anywhere from 2-5 days. This has put many a customer in the frustrating position of waiting for the draft to become valid and available. At Driveo we pay you with a regular business check that you can cash immediately or deposit into your bank account.
Beating a Competitor Offer
At Driveo, we will do our best to beat any other valid offer you’ve received from another dealership or a car buying service. All you have to do is send us a picture of any valid offer through our upload an offer page.
Transparency of the Quote
At many dealerships or car buying services, you really have no idea how they came up with the quote they give you. At Driveo, we take pride in being transparent about our offers. We will happily explain how came up with your quote. With a Driveo quote, you’ll know what your true trade-in value is, private sale value, and the Driveo quote. With our competition, you’ll only get one number, their offer, without any other information to see how the offer compares to other ways of assessing the value of your ride.
A Free Ride After Selling Your Car
After selling your car, you might need a ride someplace now that your vehicle is gone. When selling to our competition, you have to think of this in advance and make your own arrangements, but at Driveo, we are happy to arrange a ride for you to wherever you need to go in San Diego County! We think that’s just good customer service.
Paying Off Your Car Loan
If you’re still making car loan payments on the vehicle you’re selling, you want the peace of mind that comes with knowing your car loan is paid off in a timely fashion. Once again, this is something that doesn’t always happen in a smooth fashion with other ways to sell your car. You just assume the lender will be paid quickly, but this doesn’t always happen. At Driveo, we understand how important it is to know that your financial obligations to your lender have been met. We make pay-offs immediately and will even provide you with a copy of the pay-off check we send to your lender.
Expert Help in the Details
When you first bought the car you’re now selling, you may have had any number of additional features built into your financing terms such as GAP insurance, service contracts, theft protection, extended warranties and so on. In most cases, the full cost of these items were included in the terms of your loan, which means you must cancel each of these additional items and should receive a pro-rated refund. At Driveo, we want to make sure you get all the money due to you and will happily help you cancel these other products so you can get a refund on each one.
