Ratings and Reviews
I was dreading selling my car privately but Blinker made the process sooo easy. I snapped some photos of my car, wrote a quick description, to pictures of documents, and set up my bank info. Three days later the car was sold and all the transactions were handled seamlessly in the app. I would definitely use this service again...the days of low-ball dealer offers are numbered.
Thank you for the great review! We are happy we could help you sell your vehicle, and that we made the process easier for you!
Asking way to much personal info
The info they are asking why do they need all that just to sell a car. You can’t upload pics of your car that you have already taken, why do they need a pic of me? Why do they need to upload my drivers license? That is way to much personal info that I am not going to give just to sell a car. If my name is on the title why do I have to upload all this info. I’ll tell you why cause they are selling your info to a third party. Also they use Craig’s list to advertise your car. Why do I need to use blinker I can just go to Craig’s list. No thanks I’ll stick to Auto Trader.
Thank you for trying Blinker! We do all those steps to verify that you are who you say you are and that you actually do own your vehicle. We verify buyers and sellers so that users can know whom they are dealing with. We also handle the funds transfer, title transfer for customers with liens and the Bill of Sale in the app. We know other sites do business differently, and we strive to make buyers and sellers feel comfortable interacting with people they don't know. We do not sell any users information. We do appreciate you giving us a try.
No response from 3 different sellers. Feels like a scam.
Sent two messages and even made an offer on a vehicle. Never heard back from anybody. Kind of a useless app if you ask me. Or it might be a scam just trying to collect your bank and credit card info and what not. It asks you for some very personal information to make an offer on the car which is kind of intrusive. In my opinion there needs to be a better way to make sure that these customers respond if they’re going to put cars for sale on this app.
Thank you for trying Blinker. We absolutely never ask for credit card information in our app. We are sorry to hear you didn't hear back from certain sellers, we are always happy to reach out to them for you as well. When someone makes an offer on a vehicle, they do have a list of to do's to complete, which one includes a bank account. We handle the ach transfer for some users so that they don't have to show up and bring cash to someone they don't know. The bank account does not need to completed until the transaction is going to happen. We hope we can assist you again in the future.
