Peddle is a modern car buying service that makes selling any car fast, easy, and awesome.
Sellers simply answer a few questions about the vehicle they are looking to sell and are instantly presented with offers and options. To complete the sale, sellers can choose to have Peddle send a carrier to pick up the vehicle at its current location or to bring the vehicle to a specified drop off location. Alternatively, if a seller is looking for a sale amount that is higher than the available offers, Peddle provides the option for sellers to list their vehicle for sale by setting an asking price. Listings are then promoted to Peddle’s national network of car buyers.
Peddle’s buyer network consists of top licensed wholesale and salvage dealers across the country that buy used and junk cars for resale, parts, or scrap. Buyers can place pre-set bids based on the types of vehicles they would like to buy, which get factored into Peddle’s instant offers. They can also browse through seller listings, view photos, and other detailed information about each vehicle, to determine if they’d like to buy or make a counteroffer to sellers.
Peddle founder and CEO Tim Yarosh was attending university as a computer science major when he started kicking around ideas for starting a business. To pay the bills, he took a job at the salvage yard that had been in his family for generations. It was there that the young entrepreneur saw a golden opportunity.
At the time, getting rid of a junk car could prove difficult. Anyone who tried found themselves on a wild goose chase of tasks: calling several junkyards, finding one that would take the car, and then waiting around to see if the tow truck would actually show. So, with a rich knowledge of computer applications and insight into the salvage industry, Tim set out to solve this problem.
With a colorful, fun, and user-friendly website and service named Junk my Car, the company began to provide a quality of customer service that the industry had never seen before, and it didn't take long for Tim's idea to blow up—in a good way! Operations grew quickly, and coverage soon extended from its humble beginnings in Connecticut, throughout New England, and then to every state in the U.S.
In 2009, encouraged by a growing market, the company expanded beyond simply removing junk cars and began to make instant offers to users looking to sell their vehicles, evolving into the service you see today: Peddle, the fastest and easiest way to sell your car!
