Before: Car Buying Experience

Vroom (Texas Direct Auto) boasts an awe-inspiring user experience allowing for anyone to find their desired car without the whole traditional car buying experience.  Which for typically goes something like:

  • Have an idea of what car you want
  • Go to dealership, see the car
  • Ask for more information, get a salesperson
  • Test Drive
  • Once back, the price tag seems to be different
  • Haggle for a better deal since the price in mind, or advertised on TV is NEVER the same
  • Take an extraordinary amount of time deciding to continue
  • Walking out with car will be sometime late afternoon or evening with a bit of buyer’s remorse

After: The Vroom (Texas Direct Auto) Car Buying Experience

Vroom, on the other hand, dispenses this method:

  • See plenty of pictures beforehand
  • Information regarding the history or specifications of the vehicle
  • If you want to continue, their financing options are planted right in front of you
  • Get the car delivered to you within the week
