In both our Vehicle Title Division and Investigative Division, an unprecedented surge in inquiries has caught our attention. Over the last 30 to 45 days, we’ve been inundated with reports from consumers sharing their experiences with online vehicle purchase companies, such as CarMax, Carvana, Vroom, Shift, and others. What’s the common thread? Rescinded or reneged offers.
These companies have revolutionized the way people sell their cars. Offering to buy vehicles even if you don’t buy from them, they provide platforms where you input your vehicle details, receive an offer, submit photos, and, if satisfied, they send a truck to pick up your vehicle, paying you for it regardless of whether you purchase a car from them. It’s a seemingly straightforward process, but a recent spike in reported issues raises questions about what might be transpiring behind the scenes.
We are reaching out to our community for insights. Have you encountered a similar experience when selling your car through online platforms? Are these companies reneging on offers due to market fluctuations? If you’re an employee in the industry, are you witnessing a shift in business practices?
As we navigate this surge in rescinded offers, it’s imperative to stay informed. Whether you’re a consumer, an industry insider, or a regulatory authority, your insights can contribute to understanding the dynamics at play. Let us know your thoughts in the comments, and stay tuned for further updates as we strive to unravel the mysteries behind this unsettling trend. Until next time!
Don’t let uncertainty hold you back. If it’s your car, you deserve a title.
