The used car market is filled with fraud and risks, often leaving buyers with no choice but to pay a premium on vehicles sold through dealerships. Less than 1% of consumers are happy with the current car buying process— so it is our mission here at Instamotor to change that. Instamotor makes it easier and safer to buy and sell a used car — providing our users with a peace of mind while saving them hundreds and thousands more.
We started Instamotor with the belief that it would be possible to build a free service for Americans to transact cars amongst each other safely and transparently, thanks to an in-depth verification process.
Each car listed on Instamotor is verified by automatically analyzing thousands of data points by our algorithms and manually reviewed by our Fraud & Safety team. This ensures that vehicles listed for sale are accurately represented to our users.
