Learn about driversselect.com
driversselect.com vehicles are the same type of vehicles you will find at dealerships just thousands less. Never pay Kelley Blue Book retail again! Our vehicles come from the same closed dealer only auctions used by other dealers. These vehicles come from many sources, the main ones are: end of lease return from banks and manufacturers, ex- rental and ex-corporate fleet vehicles and over stock inventory from car dealers. But at driversselect.com our buyers are purchasing from all over the country to get your the best possible prices and save thousands, while we also focus on keeping costs low by not having fancy buildings and extras. We pass these savings on to you and price our vehicles at the lowest possible price up front giving you the opportunity to buy these same vehicles under Kelley Blue Book retail and saving you all the time, hassle and stress of negotiating that you face at other dealers.
At driversselect.com our process is very different than traditional dealers. Our goal is to give you full control by delivering the highest levels of transparency. One of the ways we do this is to give you the best possible choice of vehicles by not only showing what vehicles we have in stock, but also what vehicles are coming down the pipeline that will be in stock over the next 7-10 days. Every vehicle on our website is for sale; but unlike other dealers we show you every vehicle we have in inventory. Most of these vehicles will be available for test drive and sale today, but some will still be going through our inspection process, and some will be on their way from auction. Our goal is to provide you with the most up to date insider's look at our entire inventory. If a vehicle is on its way from auction then it will only have one photo- a stock picture of a vehicle with a tarp over it that says "arriving soon". If the vehicle has multiple photos then it is onsite and available for sale; but can only be test driven once the vehicle completes the inspection process. If a vehicle has not completed the inspection process you can view it immediately and provide you with an estimated date when the vehicle will be available a test drive. It is recommended that you contact one of our customer support representatives via chat, email, or call 888-868-8046 to confirm availability for test drive before leaving home.
1. Are all Vehicles on the Website Available for Sale?
YES! Every vehicle on the website is available for sale. However some of the vehicles may be on their way from auction or still in the inspection process. If a vehicle is on its way from auction then it will only have one photo- a stock picture of a vehicle with a tarp over it that says "arriving soon". If a the vehicle has multiple photos then it is onsite and available for sale but can only be test driven once it completes the inspection process. It is recommended that you contact one of our customer support representatives via chat, email or call 888-868-8046 to confirm availability for test drive. If a vehicle has not completed the inspection process you can view it immediately and we provide you with an estimated date when the vehicle will be available for test drive.
2. Can I see vehicles that have not completed the Inspection Process?
YES. Any vehicle with multiple photos is available for viewing but if it has not completed the inspection it will not be available to be test driven until the state inspection is completed. However, we do allow you to come in and touch, view, and get a feel for the condition of the vehicle - but you will have to wait a few days to test drive it. It is recommended that you contact one of our customer support representatives via chat, email, or call 888-868-8046 to confirm availability for test drive.
3. How do I know what vehicles are available for test drive and what vehicles are not ready?
Just contact one of our customer support representatives via chat, email, or call 888-868-8046 before you leave home to confirm availability for test drive. If a vehicle has not completed the inspection process you can view it immediately and we can provide you with an estimated date when the vehicle will be available for test drive.
4. Can I Reserve a Vehicle before it is available for Test Drive?
YES! If you see any vehicle on the website you can put a $500 deposit on that vehicle and it will be considered sold. Please know that all deposits are non-refundable so please make sure this is the vehicle you want. Once a $500 deposit is secured your vehicle will be made a priority and moved to the front of the inspection process ahead of other vehicles in the pipeline that have not been sold. A $500 deposit allows you to secure the vehicle so no other person can purchase it. Once a deposit is taken on the vehicle it is removed completely off the website that night and no longer available for sale.
5. How does driversselect.com sell the same vehicles as other dealers for thousands less?
This is the number one question we get asked, the answer is really simple - we work hard to eliminate the high selling costs of traditional car dealers. Here are some of the ways we cut costs and keep prices low:
a. WE BUY OUR VEHICLES IN THE MARKETS WHERE THEY ARE SELLING FOR THE LEAST AND PASS THE SAVINGS ON TO YOU. We have dedicated full time buyers purchasing vehicles over the internet from as many as 60-80 different auctions all over the country each week. Every week our buyers seek out the lowest priced vehicles no matter where they are located. driversselect.com is not associated with one brand of vehicles so we have flexibility to buy only the vehicles that offer the best value. If Honda vehicles are lower at auction Chicago we buy those instead of Toyota or Nissan that day in Dallas. If BMWs are less than Mercedes one day we buy BMWs. We don’t compromise quality we buy when and where the prices are low and pass the savings on to you.
b. WE ELIMINATE UNNECESSARY AMENITIES AND COSTS. Traditional car dealers offer luxurious showrooms and fancy services like free car washes for life, free loaner cars, free pick up and personal concierges. These facilities and services cost money and are built into the price you pay for your vehicle. At driversselect.com we are independent of any one manufacturer so we don’t have to absorb the facilities cost many manufactures force on their dealers. We focus on driving costs out of the system to give you a simple quick buying process at the best possible price.
c. WE OFFER A QUICK AND SIMPLE BUYING PROCESS, LOWERING OUR SELLING COSTS. The number one expense for car dealers is personnel. We reduce our personnel costs by increasing productivity. By setting prices low from day one we eliminate the need for and cost of special promotions or incentives (which are really just an excuse for high prices). We also eliminate the need to haggle or negotiate, instead of spending time haggling and going back and forth over price, our sales people can focus on taking orders and delivering cars. We designed our model for today’s fast paced internet world. We think more than ever our customers don’t want to overpay for products and services (especially major purchases like a vehicle) and do not have the time for lengthy sales processes or sales gimmicks. Our simple process provides great prices upfront and allows you to do all your research on-line and lock all your purchase details or, even totally complete your purchase, all from the comfort of your own home.
d. WE SELL ON HIGH VOLUME NOT HIGH MARGIN: Unlike most car dealers who try to hold high margins on just about every vehicle, we generate our profits from selling high volumes of vehicles at lower margins. We find that when you price vehicles at a low price you sell them a lot faster and that generates better deals for you and more satisfied customers for us.
Many driversselect.com vehicles are still covered under the original manufacturer’s warranty. Some vehicles even come with a full maintenance plan. See dealer for more details. You can also purchase an extended service contract to provide up to 3 years and 100,000 miles worth of coverage on every driversselect.com vehicle.

10. What type of Income Qualifies?

Your personal consultant will work one on one with you to help verify all income and the monthly payment you qualify for.
11. Do I need a co-signer to get Financed?
While co-signers with positive credit can help improve your financing terms, they certainly aren't required. Co-signers are used when there isn't significant proof of gross monthly income, proof of residence, a valid driver's license, proof of full coverage insurance, six personal references, and rent or mortgage is not current. In addition, if your total debt, including rent or mortgage, along with any debt listed on your credit bureau report, exceeds 50% of your verifiable gross monthly income, or you have an open automobile that you are not trading, you may be required to have a cosigner to budget for additional debt.
