List your car for free

Instamotor is a local marketplace app (for iPhone and Android) where people can safely buy and sell used cars. The private-party market is broken and full of fraud, which costs consumers billions of dollars a year. Instamotor is safer to use than Craigslist, every vehicle listed gets reviewed to ensure it fits strict safety guidelines by our Fraud & Safety team and all vehicles listed have a clean title. Our team checks for pending manufacturer recalls against data made available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Instamotor is completely free for both buyers and sellers. Users can browse vehicles listed near them, search by make and model, view photos, features, technical specs and contact sellers for test drives as well as “favorite” vehicles to price watch. Every vehicle also comes with a free vehicle history report powered by Experian’s AutoCheck. Consumers can also secure financing through the app from one of our financing partners.

Instamotor is available in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego California, Dallas Ft. Worth and Houston Texas. Instamotor is headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
