New Car Buying App CarBlip Raises $2M
CarBlip, headquartered in Santa Monica, California, is dedicated to reinventing the purchase process with a seamless and expedited car buying experience. By starting the negotiation process online, consumers will be able to significantly cut their overall time at the dealership.
The app launched last month on iOS in Southern California with plans to expand nationwide.
“There is an evolution happening within the automotive industry’s digital retail space,” CarBlip co-founder and CEO Brian Johnson said in a statement upon the platform’s launch. “Consumers demand more control of the car-buying process, and CarBlip is providing this service by allowing consumers to start the negotiation process anywhere, anytime.”
The service improves the car-buying experience for consumers, “especially the digitally focused millennials,” Johnson added, while delivering more customers to dealers.
“Today, the car-buying experience involves a time-consuming negotiation process that’s exhausting for both the buyer and the seller,” said Science Inc. co-founder and CEO Mike Jones. “CarBlip’s new platform transforms that experience so that it’s easy for buyers to shop, decide and drive off in their new car, which gives dealers more time to see more buyers.”
Because the price of every car should be negotiable.
