Shift is the easiest way for people to buy and sell used cars in the peer-to-peer market. Our knowledgeable Car Enthusiasts act as a personal, full-service concierge helping throughout each and every step of the selling or buying process. For our sellers, we help sell their car for the best price possible without any of the hassle. This includes our team detailing the car, listing it on multiple sites, answering all inquiries, handling test drives, and finding serious buyers. When local buyers are interested in seeing the car, they can request a no-obligation test drive and we’ll deliver the car right to their doorstep. All Shift cars pass a rigorous, 200-point inspection and come with a seven day money-back guarantee. Ultimately, our goal is to transform this burdensome life event into a delightful experience, bringing trust and simplicity to the peer-to-peer used car market.
