Ratings and Reviews
Why isn’t everyone using this!?
Seriously, this is such a great concept. Gone are the days of being low-balled because someone “has cash”. This app offers an easy way to allow buyers to finance and opens your car up to more potential buyers than just those with cash on hand. It’s not instant gratification as not enough people are using the app, but the fact that I got my asking price and the process was laid out for me was wonderful!
Worst Car Buying Experience Ever
This app causes our simple private party transaction to become a nightmare of red tape. The process was painfully slow. The requirements were over the top (snap a photo WITH the app of my DL, to “verify identity”, when I’m literally standing next to the seller?! They know I’m me!). Can’t upload any photos — all taken WITH app. And what are they doing with all our DL photos? What if they are compromised? Not to mention they have my bank account info. I plan to delete the app and request they destroy all our info as soon as the lengthy process finally finishes.
Everything about this app makes the process slower, less efficient, and more cumbersome. Do not believe the marketing. Sometimes technology doesn’t make things smoother but instead puts up roadblocks. You don’t need an app for everything!
The icing on the cake is when we had completed the sale, they sent me a document called “Your Guide to the DMV” which contained totally false information for my state. The DMV rep laughed and said they had no idea what these instructions were about. If they’re doing to do business in California, they need to research how our DMV works. You can’t just copy and paste instructions from a different state.
Do Not Use this App if in California
This has been one of the most frustrating car buying experiences I have ever gone through.
1)Takes too long to verify your identity/ will only do it during their business hours. Forget about hoping to purchase a car later that day if you submitted your Drivers License to them the same day.
2) If the seller screws up on paperwork you won’t be able to transfer the title. This means you could possibly pay late fees. Blinker is slow to correct paperwork issues with seller/ may not even be able to get in contact with them. This means you have to take care of something they should have.
3) If title is electronic and you live in CA you cannot use their temporary permit paperwork in the meantime while working on getting the title.
4) Failure on their part to stamp the title when it was sent to me... resulting in having to ship it back to them to validate the transfer.
In summary: Multiple hours (7+) of wasted time at the DMV and confusing red tape that Blinker does not fully understand/does not care to let you know about.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
