Having lived in the city for over three years now, I’ve had my fair share of car issues. There were some brief moments where I had considered saying so long to good old Betty Harrington (my car’s name) because of the hassle. Not to mention a little someone called the Ph*ladelphia P*rking **thor*ty who gives me all sorts of trouble. I’ve hung on to Betty, but if you find yourself ready to sell, check out GroovyCar.
GroovyCar is a new app that lets you sell your car quickly in an online auction to local Philly car dealers. It’s quick, efficient and the cars sell on the app for an average of $4,000 more than trade in. Cool, right?
Here’s the what what of GroovyCar:
They are based in the greater Philadelphia area. One of their founders owns a dealership in Willow Grove, their other founder just moved from the Main Line to Puerto Rico, their sales director lives in South Philly, and others live on the Main Line. We love a Philly connection.
What is GroovyCar?
GroovyCar is an online, auction-style platform where you can sell your car quickly, easily, and safely to local dealers for an average of 20% more than trade-in value (which could mean an extra $4,000 in your pocket).
If I want to sell, how does it work?
To get started, all you need to do is create an account on the GroovyCar app (recommended!) or website. Then, you’ll be able to go straight to listing your car, which should take 10 minutes or less. You’ll answer basic questions about your vehicle, assess its condition, and snap some quick pics (yyour phone works fine). Then, your car can be listed “for sale” in a GroovyCar auction as soon as the next business day. Local dealerships will then begin bidding to win your car. All auctions run from 9AM-5PM EST Monday-Friday. After your auction ends, you will be connected with the winning dealership to arrange a time to drop off your car and pick up your check (some dealers will even come to you – groovy!). Not ready to sell just yet? Head here to get your GroovyCar Quick Estimate, to get a better idea of how much money you can get in a live auction.
So if you’re ready to start selling, click here to download their app to begin. Below I’ll be giving a little demo of what it’s like:
- After I made my account, I selected to sell my car.
- I then entered in my VIN (vehicle identification number), and voila, my car’s info appeared.
- It didn’t take me long to complete my car’s condition section (I blocked out some personal information in the screen shots).
- After I took a photo of my car, I was done!
Anything vehicle-related is pretty intimidating to me, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by how easy this process was.
