If you want to trade in your car or sell it privately, 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. With us, you can get a fast Driveo quote online without ever leaving the comfort of your home!
Our initial quote 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 most car buying services or dealers, it’s usually good for only a week or even less with some companies. This may not be enough time to explore other options for selling your car.
You’ll be paid with a regular business check you can cash immediately or deposit into your bank. When selling your car privately on your own, safely accepting payment can get complicated and result in delays, especially if the buyer needs to get a car loan first.
We will do our best to beat any valid offer you’ve received from another dealership or car buying service. All you have to do is send us a picture of any valid offer through our upload an offer page.
At some places, you really have no idea how they came up with the quote the give you. We take pride in being transparent about our offers. We will happily explain how we came up with your quote. With a Driveo quote, you’ll know what your true trade-in value is, private sale value, and our quote. Other places might give you only one number, their offer, without any other information to see how the offer compares to other ways of assessing the value of your ride.
After selling your car, you might need a ride someplace since you no longer have a vehicle. When selling privately, you have to think of this in advance and make your own arrangements, but we’re happy to arrange a ride for you to wherever you need to go locally. We think that’s just good customer service.
If you’re still making car loan payments on the vehicle you’re selling, you want the peace of mind that comes from knowing your car loan is paid off in a timely fashion. This is something that doesn’t always happen smoothly with other ways of selling your car. You just assume the lender will be paid quickly, but this doesn’t always happen. We understand how important it is to know your financial obligations to your lender have been met. We make pay-offs immediately and even give you a copy of the pay-off check to your lender.
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. We want you to get all the money you’re due and are happy to help you cancel these other products so you can get a refund for each one.
