does @beepi understand the importance of insured dealer plates ???

we are students of the automotive sales industry

and retired law enforcement training officers

we run the largest dmv certified car dealer school in california

we have watched others pour millions

into failed disruptive technology attempts

look at carwoo

look at truecar

look at best offer

my 3 questions for the beepi.com disruptive technology model are these

where are the buyers guides??

where are the happy stickers??

where are the insured dealer plates??

+++

beepi.com is a licensed used car dealer in santa cruz california

this location, which they admitted to their landlord

is only for purposes of the dmv license

beepi.com seems to be running their operation out of los altos california

from an unlicensed location at 5050 el camino real suite 106

furthermore their disruptive technology model provides delivery to the customer

without a showroom visit to its licensed or its unlicensed location

the questions then arises, if you are transporting these vehicles under tax exempt status

a licensed salesperson or an owner must be present

and the dealer plate with insurance

as required by law

must be posted on the vehicle during transit

we suspect

NONE OF YOUR STAFF HOLDS A VALID SALESPERSON LICENSE

AND VEHICLES IN TRANSIT ARE NEVER DEALER PLATED

AND ONE MUST ASSUME NO VALID CAR DEALER INSURANCE COVERAGE

no salesperson licenses are posted at your santa cruz location

and

because not one photo of a beepi.com car in transit shows a car dealer license plate

AS REQUIRED BY LAW

this one flaw in your disruptive technology used car sales model

when noted by the state board of equalization and the dmv

could spell huge fines and penalties for your $ 65M startup

+++

if you have not addressed these three significant questions

your $ 65M startup is doomed for failure

perhaps a copy of my resume??

can i apply for your dmv liasion position??

does @instamotor have a chance in a very crowded field of outlaw renegade used car dealers ??

The Used-Car Industry

According to a research study done by Manheim Consulting, around 11 million people sell their cars privately, and 40 million used cars are sold each year – three times that of new vehicles. The used-car market is quite huge, and it is not showing any signs of slowing down.

Despite all of the recent advancements in technology, including websites such as Autotrader and Kelley Blue Book, which helps sellers find out how much their car is worth, getting rid of an old vehicle still remains a frustrating and time-consuming experience for most. It usually involves a lengthy process of prepping your car, researching the right market price, taking photos, making videos, putting up ads, conducting test drives, and going through uncomfortable negotiations with complete strangers. And don’t forget some of the security risks you face when dealing with buyers from places like Craigslist.

The process can be quite daunting and discouraging for some, which is why a lot of sellers just go directly to their dealers. A dealer will just take one look at your car, give you a price, and then write you a check. A fast and easy process that comes with a huge disadvantage – you get a lot less money for your vehicle, sometimes thousands of dollars less. But it seems like a big percentage of sellers opt out for the easier option. If 40 million used cars are sold a year, and only 11 million are private sales, then that means 29 million people choose the simpler and less rewarding path.

InstaMotor – A New Way to Sell Used Cars

Instamotor, a San Francisco startup, has come up with a whole new way to sell your vehicle. They call themselves, “the car realtors.” For a small fee, Instamotor removes all of the hassle and complications that go along with privately selling a used-car.

When you sign up for the service an agent comes to your driveway to photograph, inspect, and list your car in the most common channels such as Craigslist, Autotrader, Cars.com, etc. Once a buyer shows interest, the Instamotor agent handles and arranges all test drives and inspections. They verify schedules based on when your vehicle is available. If a buyer agrees to purchase the vehicle, then the agent takes care of all of the paperwork associated with the transfer of vehicle ownership. Once the buyer provides funds, Instamotor takes a 5% commission, or a $500 flat fee if the value of the vehicle is below $10,000.

This process allows those 29 million people that sell their cars directly to dealers every year to opt in for a more convenient option. They don’t have to go through the complicated and time-consuming process of selling their car alone, and they don’t have to limit the value of their vehicles to what dealers offer. Instead, Instamotor users can enjoy the higher value they get from a private sale without actually doing all the complex work behind it.

A Deeper Look

Instamotor also helps sellers determine the best list price for their vehicles. They use an internal analytics system, which gives users an analysis of how their car is priced around the county. The agent and the seller then both agree on the best price.

Buyers are automatically provided with the vehicle’s Carfax or mechanic inspection. While the sales process is going on, Instamotor doesn’t take possession of the seller’s vehicle. Instead, it can remain parked in their driveway, or they can use it as they please until it is sold. When potential buyers conduct test-drives they must provide proof of insurance to agents in case of accidents. It’s all pretty secure, which makes it possible for sellers to be absent during test-drives and inspections. In short, the seller can just sit back and relax while the realtor is selling their car.

Instamotor has claimed that their sellers usually stack up between $2000 and $3000 by using their service versus going directly to a dealership for trade-in.
