TRED lists your car on about a dozen major sites to get as many buyers’ eyes on it as possible!
Unless your car is very new, has very low miles and is still under manufacturer warranty, we will require that you get it inspected at a local Firestone or Pep Boys location - but don't worry, we'll pay for it! We'll also provide your buyers with a free CARFAX report to give them confidence in making a strong offer. We will also physically mail you a packet of transaction documentation, which we ask that you keep in your glovebox.
Instead of giving out any of your personal contact info, you will receive offers from buyers, messages from buyers, and test drive requests from buyers through TRED, and you can respond to buyers through the site or mobile app.
We’ll even set buyers up with quality finance options through our lending partners, which means you’re more likely to find a qualified buyer quickly. You have full control over the price your vehicle sells for.
In most cases, you will meet your buyer for a test drive, and in most cases, that test drive will happen at a local FedEx Office location (your test drive location is determined by you). If your buyer likes your car, they will agree to a price and complete your vehicle purchase directly through the TRED website or mobile app. At this point, we will notify you how to use your the transaction documentation we have provided to work with your buyer to complete the sale safely and securely.
Once your buyer has paid in full, TRED acts as an escrow account and dealership to process payment securely and handle the transfer of your vehicle registration and title. This ensures a secure handoff without risk of fraud and keeps you and your buyer out of the DMV!
