Does anyone have any experience with them? They have a few good reviews but they could be fake.
I figure I'd treat them as any other dealer, but they may be more convenient.

Wow, thanks. Sounds like a bad deal and different than what their website says. Are you sure it's the same people?koffey wrote: ↑ When I was trying to sell my car and they contacted me, here is how this played out.
I get a phone call from "Annie" who was interested in buying my car. I hear her. Basically, they tell you that they have someone that wants to buy your car. This person cannot really afford the asking price of normal circumstances therefore these people are trying to get them the car. The fee is at minimum $500. So, whatever your asking price is, tune it up to whatever number they want to make. So, if it's $5000, its now at least $5500. If you are slightly interested, she will have the sales manager call you.
So, the sales guy calls, really cocky type and basically tells you right off the bat that this isn't a scam, but you have to front the fee for them in order to sell the car. So, if your $5500 asking price just went to $4500 because you are fronting the $500. I called it a scam, the sale guys got really pissed at me and asked me to explain how so. Why would I want to pay someone money, $500, upfront to try and sell my car to someone else for $5500 just so I can get my $500 back? From my discussion, this is to secure their services, and there is no promise your car will have a immediate buyer. Bye bye $500.
I understand there are people out there without the means or funds to buy a car privately or through some banks, but come on... There are hundreds of dealers out there that will sell you the skin off their face, just expect the interest rate to be the way I like girls. High teens, early twenties.

If it's a 613 number or the sort, yeah, probably the same folks. Even the website says "I was sceptical" lol. But 100% honesty, I don't know if they are the same group of folks. I get these calls all the time when trying to sell vehicles on Autotrader or Kijiji. I put them in the Nigerian Prince folder.engineered wrote: ↑ Wow, thanks.

10. Are there any upfront costs to me?
Absolutely not – a certified We Buy Ur Ride inspector will come to your door, and will happily offer you a free inspection with full payment made on the spot.

Kia Sportage. Like 2 days before the big recall was announced, so good timing, LOL. Though our car has the engine oil pump replaced already. Though the engine oil/bearing issue has been known for almost a year. Wife, through her company, just leased a 2017 Audi Q5 for $460/mo ($517 after fees/taxes), $0 down, 48mo, 60k KM.

Wow, surprising. So no upfront fees? What about ownership transfer? Bill of sale? Did they ask your for UVIP?engineered wrote: ↑ Update, we did end up selling to WeBuyUrRide.com
They seem to be a franchise. They came to look at the car and made an offer, which was less than the blue book value but more than the dealer offers. My wife just wanted to make the deal ASAP, so she took the offer since it was still more than what she owed on the car. Transaction went smoothly, no complaints. A day later, they handed over a certified cheque, and drove off using dealer plates. We were worried that they were somehow a scam but they just seem to be looking for deals to resell probably to used car dealers or something.

No fees. They just inspected the car and made an offer, like any other private sale. Pretty sure wife got a UVIP but would have been sold as is as no safety was performed. Owner ship was signed over when certified cheque was received. Car was a 2012 Kia Sportage in very good condition (almost 5 years old).

Did you mean that you wanted to sell as-is to a private party or to webuyurride.com? If it's the latter, your best option is to call them and ask.
