Driveway Auction Inside Sales Position

Anyone who ever sold their car likely walked away feeling like they have been used, had their time wasted, and potentially left money on the table.  It’s a near universal experience, and one that Driveway Auction is now working to change!

The company was founded on a simple idea – make it easy, quick, and profitable for anyone to sell their car. Using its unique process and proprietary software, Driveway Auction’s clients can sell their vehicle in less than 48 hours to the highest bidder, while never having to leave their home. No more test drives with strangers, no more dealing with pressure tactics, and no more sitting for hours at the dealership, waiting on an offer. Driveway is not a dealership, but a car seller advocate, and its success is reflected in hundreds of 5-star yelp reviews and the high percentage of repeat customers, who swear they will never sell a car any other way.
