No one has time for a used-car salesman’s antics. You know the shtick: A pushy mustachioed guy puts on the pressure and forces you to haggle uncomfortably for the semi-busted pickup truck in the corner lot. And we get it: He's under tons of pressure to close the deal. Unfortunately it’s often at your expense.
That’s where Vroom comes in.
The site for buying (or selling) a pre-owned car streamlines the process, eliminating the salesperson and making prices transparent (no hidden fees or sneaky add-ons).
Here’s our favorite part: Once you make a purchase, Vroom delivers the car right to your door--for free--and gives you a seven-day at-home test-drive (plus a money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied). And unlike other used-car sites, which focus on peer-to-peer sales, Vroom takes temporary ownership of the vehicles in its marketplace and offers white-glove service every step of the way.
Get started by searching Vroom’s inventory--everything from Hondas and Fords to Porsches and Teslas--with filters like make and model, price, year and mileage. Every competitively priced car has a profile with pictures, plus nitty-gritty details (such as suspension type and axle ratio) for novices and gearheads alike. Your zip code helps calculate the “out the door” cost, including tax, title and license fees, and Vroom has partnered with more than 30 banks to help with financing.
The company doesn’t accept cars with accident histories, and each car goes through a 126-point inspection to ensure you don’t get a beater. Cars are also cleaned, detailed and tuned so they look brand-new.
Good-bye, weekend afternoons spent schlepping to car lots. Hello, cruising to the beach in your new ride.
