Frequently Asked Questions

Who are your buyers?

We work with all types of buyers, including dealers, private buyers, and businesses - whoever is willing to pay the most for your vehicle!

How do you make money?

When you accept our offer, we buy the car directly from you. We then transfer the title to our buyer, who pays us a small fee for finding, inspecting, and purchasing the car for them.

How much does it cost to sell to Gauge?

It costs you nothing! You should never have to pay to sell your car.

How are you able to pay more than the dealerships that have contacted me?

We guarantee the condition of every vehicle we inspect, so our buyers have the confidence to pay up.

Can you purchase my vehicle if I have a loan?

Yes! When you accept our offer, we’ll handle the entire loan payoff process, including paperwork and sending in the payoff, and pay you any positive equity on the spot.

What do I need to bring with me when I drop off my car?

All you need to bring is your title* (if you have it), all the keys for the vehicle, your driver’s license, and your registration. If you have a payoff, we’ll help you gather the necessary information.

All parties on the title will need to be present to sign for the paperwork and drop off the vehicle. When in doubt ask your Seller Success Specialist!

How long will it take for Gauge to buy my vehicle?

After your inspection appointment, it will take between 2-4 days for all of your offers to come in. At that time, someone from our Seller Success team will contact you to talk through every offer and help you make the decision that makes the most sense for you. We’ll even share industry data with you that is typically only available to dealerships.

Am I obligated to sell my vehicle to Gauge?

Nope! At no point are you obligated to sell to Gauge until you’ve accepted our offer and signed the car over to us.

Where is Gauge located?

We currently have two locations:

Salt Lake City, UT (HQ):
325 East 900 South, Salt Lake City, Utah
Serving the entire Salt Lake Valley, Utah County, and Davis County

Tempe, Arizona:
1607 E Apache Blvd, Tempe, Arizona 85281
Serving the greater Phoenix area

What information is needed to get my offers?

We will need basic information about your vehicle, such as VIN and mileage, to get started. After that, we’ll set an inspection appointment and take photos to create a condition report for our buyers. Knowing the exact condition of the car gives them the confidence to make their stronger offer.

How will I get paid?

We’ll pay you with a business check, which you can deposit right away. 

Why would I sell to Gauge rather than on the private market?

Gauge can usually get you more money for your car, even while taking the work out of selling it. No need to waste your time with lowball dealership offers, scammers, or tire kickers.
