Stay far away from 1-800 Car Cash if you have a decent car that you're not desperate to sell. I went there after visiting another dealer in Queens. They wanted to know what I wanted and when I said I wanted to know what they'd give me for the car the salesman told me that's not the way it works. When I told him what someone else had offered me, he said they were lying and I said fine, see you later. I sold the car to CarMax three months later and received the same offer I had from the first place in Queens, $2,000 more than their original offer. I drove it all summer and got a fair deal from an above board company. Don't even bother with Car Cash. They're totally dishonest in my book.
I sold them my car last Wednesday.I would recommend them and do business with them again.I liked my car and really did not want to sell it but had to so I would not have to register the car in NY.I am a legal resident of Utah.They made an offer,I told him what I wanted but would make a concession and take this amount and we had a deal.As far as the negative reviews,well you can't please everyone.I got what I expected.
Stay FAR AWAY from the Car Cash Guys – I would stay FAR from these guys!! For all of their catchy commercials and jingles, they are no different than the sleaziest used car dealers you can imagine. They first quoted me an auto quote to entice me to come in with my vehicle. They then followed this up with a phone call reaffirming their quote. When I arrived with my car, I was greeted by a nasty salesman who offered me $500 less than the low end of the auto quote.
Basically, they bait and switch. They are highly unprofessional, sleazy, and downright nasty to deal with. I would recommend staying FAR away from these guys.
fast service and good deal – I had moved into the city so I decided I no longer needed a car, so I had my BMW X5 appraised online at the car cash website. I brought the car in for them to appraise it and it was within the price that was quoted online, so I decided to go through the transaction. It literally took 20 minutes. I had all my paperwork ready and all they had to do was a tilte search and inspect the vehicle. Since my car was still being financed and the balloon payment was coming up in two weeks, I was still skeptical. I called BMW and within the two weeks, they received the balloon payment from CarCash! I was relieved that there are still some car businesses on the straight and narrow! I have recommended this to a co-worker that needs to get rid of her car.
Save your time and energy – So after going to the website and putting in all the infomation regarding my 2005 A6 Audi, they give me a price range of what my car is worth. I take the time to drive from NJ to NY, with a friend following to give me a ride back after selling the car. When I get there, they offer me $3,700 less than the low end of their estimate. They didn't care what the estimate said and were only going to give me their lowball offer. I just hate dishonest business practices! I drove back to NJ through the tunnel and headed to Jersey City to "We Buy Any Auto" where they gave me $2,000 more. Car Cash inflates their estimates to get you to go to them, but all's their doing is bait and switch. I recommend contacting Pete at "We Buy Any Auto" in Jersey City. You'll be saving your time & energy and get a fair price without any games.
Bunch of Liars – If you like being lied to or being ripped off, bring your car to Carcash. The owner, Bruce Baron, is the master of deceit and will initially convince you that he'll give you good value for your car. After shopping around, you return and he gives you a low ball figure and denies whatever value he previously promised. I was so fed up that I drove to Connecticut and got $2000 more for my car at the Carmax near New Haven. Yes, it's a 1 hour train ride back, but totally worth the extra $2000.
Every good review in this site, must be fabricated by the liar in chief, Bruce Baron of Car Scam.
Fast efficent service – I moved into the city and had no need for my 2009 Honda Civic. I called several dealers who advertised and wound up going to Car Cash. I got a fair price, paid on the spot and an envelope for 20.00 (travel expenses) with $2.00 Bills (very cool). Ron was my buyer and a very nice guy.
I can recommend Car Cash to anyone.
bunch of thieves – Called car cash they assured me that I would get 12k for my cooper all i had to do is drive it in.
I got there they said 5k and then went to 7k and I had to take it because it was that or i was stuck in NY.
My next step is to file a complaint with the bbb and from there seek a law suit for them breaking a verbal contract.
Do not trust these people if they give you a price it will not be a deal by far.
Crooks have a code of honor these people do not. I give them a -5 stars.
Very quick transactions. Good service. – This place rocks if you want to sell your car in 20 minutes and have a check given to you immediately. They gave me a 5k-7k quote for my car on the phone and when I came in... Offered me 5k. A guy does a test drive around the block and you're done. I didn't think the price was as low as everyone else said it is. The service is friendly... If your car is in good condition and is in demand they really work with you to sell your car on the spot... Its sort of a reversed car dealership. I don't think this is a good alternative for selling a car yourself because it is slighlt below market value. However, in a situation like mine I appreciated walking out with a check 20 minutes later.
Avoid if you want close to fair value – I would highly recommend avoiding this place if possible. The only reason to go here is if you're looking to sell your car in 10 minutes (literally, it's that quick). I found them to be highly dishonest. Granted, it's a business so they're there to make money, but that doesn't justify trying to completely rip people off. AVOID!
