If you want to spend your weekend trolling through used car dealership lots and haggling over prices, have at it. But if you'd rather have your next car delivered direct to your house and save your free-time for fun endeavors (like wine-tasting or attending a music festival), then consider Vroom. Here are eight reasons to to buy or sell your car from the comfort of your couch with Vroom.
This story is brought to you in partnership with Vroom.
1. No haggling.
The writing down of numbers on a sheet of paper; the sales rep pretending to go out on a limb with his manager, then disappearing out of the room for approval…the whole car buying experience can be boring and stressful. With Vroom, the price you see is the price you pay. Their value pricing comes in below market value, so you know you're getting a good deal, too. Customers save an average of 8 percent when they buy from Vroom.
2. Huge selection.
When you go to a dealership, you're stuck with the choices available on the lot. Vroom sifts through millions of cars so you don't have to. In fact, it is the #1 direct retailer for buying and selling cars. Bonus: more than 80 percent of their cars are less than three years old.
3. Peace of mind.
Buying a car from a private seller can be nerve-wracking. Not so with Vroom because all of their cars are Supremely Certified. This means their cars have never, ever been in an accident (as verified by an AutoCheck report, provided to the buyer). Each vehicle goes through a 126-point inspection by an ASE-certified mechanic. (This National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence is an independent, non-profit organization that has been testing and certifying mechanics since 1972.) They make sure every car is reconditioned so that it drives and feels as new as possible. A car purchased from Vroom will have no dents, perfect alignment, and comes topped off with fluids and even a full tank of gas.
4. Free delivery and pick up.
Vroom offers free nationwide delivery within the Continental U.S. It will feel like Christmas, Hanukkah and your birthday rolled into one when the big ol' Vroom truck pulls up to your house carrying your newly purchased car.
5. Get full service support, from the comfort of your couch.
Vroom doesn't just sell cars. They will help you trade, finance, and more. They also handle the pesky paperwork typically done by the buyer and seller. You have better things to do with your time than sitting around sipping stale coffee and poring over stacks of paperwork at a dealership…like planning your next vacation!
6. Satisfaction is guaranteed.
Vroom wants to make sure their customers love their cars, so they offer a seven-day no regrets home drive. When you buy from Vroom you have seven days or 250 miles to drive the car at home. If you don’t like it, they will take the car back and give you a full return.
7. Get $250 cash back on your Vroom purchase!
- Choose your car on Vroom.com, go through the online process to choose payment type, submit a trade-in (if desired) and set up delivery.
- When you receive an email or phone call from your customer representative, mention you were referred and give him or her promo code VIPPHX16 to get $250 cash back on your purchase. (Discount code expires August 31, 2017.)
- You will receive a $250 cash card two to three weeks after your car is delivered!
