It has been over a week since my vehicle info was submitted and evaluated with offers by Vroom and Carvana, still no contract received even though both said it will be emailed. Standard canned message when I try to contact them. I am planning to lease new car this weekend, should I wait until my car is purchased by one of them or pull the trigger on new lease anyway.
Anyone else experience this, and how long did it take to sell?
I am genuinely surprised. My experience with Car Trackers was positive - far better than I hoped or could have imagined. Like I said, it was completely seamless. I am about to sell my mother’s leased 2018 Sport Edition. I plan to schedule an appointment with Car Trackers this week. I will follow up and let you know how it goes. Very sorry you have had a negative experience.
I was actually pleasantly surprised with this one and had no idea it was an option or that they would be competitive. They gave me a higher offer than Shift, Carvana, and CarMax, but lower than Vroom. So far Vroom has been the highest both in terms of offer and headache.
I tried that, but no go. My Vroom offer is just ridiculous, but the headache that comes with it is almost not worth the hassle. I don’t want to deal with delayed payments to the lender, myself, etc. So I may just go with the Auto Nation offer.
Once again, great experience with Car Trackers. Sold my mom’s 2018 Sport Edition for $46,500. Car Trackers’ offer was between $100 and $6400 higher than other used car dealers (assume the usual suspects…CarMax, Enterprise, Vroom, etc.). High recommended!! Love this company.
It all depends on the lessor or the captive bank and their respective policy regarding 3rd party buyouts. Currently Audi / VW & I believe Volvo, are the ones people are really running into an issue with as they allow you to buy the car at the contracted buy-out price. Lately also reported that Infiniti and Nissan do not allow it all. They do not allow a 3rd party such as a dealer or your friend to buy it without a market adjustment.
In order to get around this some people are purchasing the car, paying the taxes, then flipping to Carvana, Vroom, etc…once they receive the title. In CA ( and only CA), their is a 10 day grace period which people are utilizing to conduct the transaction w/o paying taxes on it.
We have quite a few threads on LH of these transactions as I am sure you are aware, just do a quick search for:
Sold one to Carvana
Sold one to Vroom
Sold one to Carmax
