We require all buyers to pay for vehicles through our platform for the following reasons:

  1. AVOID FRAUD: private market seller fraud and identity fraud is rampant. If you transact off platform, TRED's guarantees regarding seller identification verification, vehicle title, vehicle lien verification and vehicle registration are rendered null and void. Avoid any risk of purchasing a vehicle or title that is misrepresented by the seller, and ensure that the seller is who they say they are. If you don't transact through TRED, we can't protect you.  
  2. TEMPORARY PERMITTING: we instruct buyers to conspicuously display the temporary permitting that we provide on their vehicle for purchase. We will instruct the seller to remove their plates or tabs upon transfer of possession of the vehicle, and it is illegal to drive any vehicle without a license or temporary permit. 
  3. MONEY AND ASSURANCE: private market title fraud is rampant. We offer 100% transaction assurance and delivery of title and lien perfection to you or your bank. We guarantee delivery of clean title, registration and license, and we are insured up to $500,000 per transaction.
  4. CONVENIENCE: you won’t have to step foot at the DMV or dealership. Everything will be emailed and mailed to you.
  5. PAYMENT OPTIONS: you can access world-class financing with rapid same day funding, all online.
  6. WARRANTY OPTIONS: you can access comprehensive vehicle service contracts provided by Ally, the nation's premier provider of vehicle service contracts, at a fraction of the price that a traditional dealership would charge.
  7. GAP COVERAGE: you can access guaranteed asset protection policies ("GAP") provided by Ally, the nation's premier provider of GAP coverage, at a fraction of the price that a traditional dealership would charge.
