The PrivateAuto Story

Yes, there is a better way.

Our Goal

Make it easy to buy or sell a car privately.

The Old Way
  • Inquiries from unverified buyers
  • Uncomfortable sharing contact information with a stranger
  • No structure to offers and lack of transparency
  • Multiple texts to coordinate meeting place and time
  • Worried about having the right paperwork (and filling out correctly)
  • Fears about fraud and receiving timely payment
The New Way
  • Verified buyer / seller environment
  • Secure communication without disclosing personal contact information
  • Make and manage offers easily
  • Easy test drive and inspection coordination
  • Verify buyer funds “in advance” for peace of mind
  • Pre-populated state documents ready for electronic signature
  • Real-time payment transfers and notifications
  • Simple transaction receipt for your records
  • A mobile app to walk you through the process
