You have a lot of choices when you want to buy a pre-owned vehicle and we know it can be overwhelming - our goal is to empower you to buy the right car at the right price, without the risks of a private sale or the high pressure setting of a dealership!
Tred strives to provide a secure, convenient platform where buyers and sellers can chat and set up test drives together. When you’re ready to buy, Tred acts as an escrow account to keep both buyer and seller safe and we even handle the DMV work!
Here are some other benefits we’re pretty excited to share!
CARFAX - Every vehicle on the site has a free CARFAX report which is posted publicly for buyers to view!
Private Party Prices - Since pricing is set by the car's owner, you have the best chance of getting a great deal! Private party pricing is consistently lower than dealership prices - get the benefit of direct peer to peer transacting without sacrificing convenience and security.
Daily Support - Buying a vehicle can be a stressful process - we’re here to help! You’ll have the support and guidance of Tred's agents.
Financing - Tred works with a handful of trusted lenders to get you the best chances of approval at a great rate! Finance applications are quick, easy, and submitted easily through our site. Many lenders provide same-day approval!
Affordable Protection Plans - Many of the vehicles we work with qualify for coverage through a Vehicle Protection Plan. Tred stands out from the pack by offering the lowest markup you’ll find on these plans - we believe in the value they provide to our customers and strive to make them as affordable as possible. Learn more about VPPs here.
GAP insurance - GAP coverage protects you in case of a total loss. Without this coverage, if your vehicle is totaled you are still responsible for paying off what you owe on it. Your insurance typically only covers some but not all of this value. GAP covers the remaining balance so that you don’t have to keep making payments on a car you can’t drive! We’re proud to offer GAP coverage to our customers because we’ve seen how much of a lifesaver it can be!
Simple, Secure Payment - Paying for your car should be quick and easy! We offer several payment methods including ACH, wire transfer, debit and credit cards. Note that card payments are subject to a 3.39% processing fee and are limited to a $5,000 total.
No DMV Trip and No Paperwork - Since Tred handles title transfer and the registration of your newly purchased vehicle, you won’t have to go to the DMV yourself to file and you won't have to handle the paperwork - we'll do it for you! As soon as you're ready to pick up your vehicle, we'll email you a temporary permit that you can print and affix to your new car, and we'll mail your permanent registration, title and plates to you as soon as they're ready!
Still not sure if buying through Tred is right for you? No worries! Our team is here to assist every day of the week and can be reached via web chat, call, text, or email.
