Horrible experience avoid cars on this site


I found out about shift because they advertise on auto trader. The X5M they had listed seemed to be a great value. I called about it and was forwarded to some call center where the shift employees were useless. All they could tell me about the car was "it's not ready for a test drive". I asked if I could go to this warehouse and look at the car so I could see if was even worth waiting for. I could not. I asked why it wasn't ready, and it was like they had a script and would just reply "it's not ready". I did not need financing through shift and when I told them that I think they threw me on a do not call list. They kept pushing their high interest financing and said it'd make it easier. When I went to my credit union and asked about shift they told me they only financed one car with shift and it was the most painstaking process they've dealt with. When shift emailed me about the car I was interested someone already put a non refundable deposit down for it within 10 mins of me receiving the email. That is illegal in California however they get around it by calling it a service fee or some BS. Buyer Beware!

Professional, helpful, kind.


First time car buyer, shift made it super easy. Not responsive at first to phone calls, they said they were very busy. Once I expressed interest and booked a test drive they were with me every step. Clay was nice enough to give me the exact wording that the bank would need to finance my car, which helped me make sure I had everything I needed. I choose to go to their location in Commerce, CA, instead of having the test drive brought to me. Since I purchased after the first test drive, they gave me $300 off. I don't remember the test drive guys name, (maybe James? Jay?) but he was the big motorcycle dude. He made the purchase process simple, and was fun to talk to.

Overall, I'm giving this a 5 star because it's a new process for buying a car, that some people will be hesitant about, but trust me, they're honest and helpful people.

The only way to buy a car


Shift is fantastic. After going to multiple dealerships and getting the run around, only to leave empty handed hours later, the process with shift was incredibly streamlined. It was clear that the person showing me the car had my best interest, there was no unnecessary haggling or attempts to upsell me on things I don't want, and best of all they brought the car to my home. Within a week of starting my search on shift I had the perfect car for me in my possession, just an hour after giving it a test drive.

The one thing I will advise is to put the $250 down on a car you're interested in as soon as possible. I missed out on a few things I scheduled to test drive because someone else bought them! Totally understandable, and awesome that there's a way to put a hold until you give it a try.
