Sunrise Chevrolet and Sunrise Toyota recently announced that they will be teaming up with Joydrive, a national vehicle marketplace, to give costumers in New York a completely online way to buy their cars without the need to visit a dealership. With no extra fees, consumers can buy their cars completely online including trade-in and financing, getting the car delivered, and a five day return option.
Both Sunrise dealerships join a rapidly growing list of the most prestigious dealers around the country, all eager to offer customers a chance to buy their next car from the comfort of their home. Joydrive's roster of innovative dealers has grown in nine months from one dealership in one state to more than 50 dealerships across the country and now includes the #1 Chevrolet dealership, the #1 Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM dealership, and the 3rd largest pre-owned dealership in the country.
Says Jimmy Berg, dealer principal of both dealerships, "Our dealerships take a lot of pride in that we are family owned and treat our customers like family. We have many customers that want to buy online and get their car delivered to their home, and we are excited to announce that we can now offer our great Sunrise customer service through Joydrive."
Joydrive is a revolutionary platform building what no one in auto has ever built – a consistent buying experience with competing dealerships united to one common platform. Says Chris Brown, owner of Subaru of Puyallup– one of the first dealerships on Joydrive, "Whether Netflix or Amazon, consumers have come to expect an easy online purchasing experience, and we are excited to partner with other Joydrive dealers to offer consumers that experience. Our customers continually tell us how easy and welcoming the Joydrive purchase process is."
And based on Joydrive's reviews, they seem to be working. Says one happy customer, "I worked all day, made dinner, worked in the yard, and the car was delivered to my door at 6. This is definitely how I will purchase a car again rather than sitting in offices waiting to sign." Sounds like a much better way to spend a Saturday than the six hours on average that it takes for a dealership visit.
With the landscape rapidly changing, forward-thinking dealers are finding Joydrive's elegant and comprehensive online car-buying platform extremely attractive. Joydrive transforms the consumer experience while maintaining the quality control that a wide-open marketplace cannot ensure.
HOW JOYDRIVE WORKS
"Joydrive is a digital marketplace in that it creates a fully-online, consistent buying experience across different brands and products, with the important added feature that we ensure quality by signing up only the best dealerships," says Hunter Gorham, CEO of Joydrive. "Joydrive is not a middleman like other services. A middleman still makes you go to a dealership and go through 90% of the traditional car buying rigmarole."
