A Beginner’s guide to buying a car online
Updated: Oct 23
Did you know that there's an easier and faster way to buy a car online? Here at gettacar, we’ve created a process that makes car buying easy and fun. We understand the reservations that come with making a big purchase online, especially in an industry that’s been historically a brick and mortar business, so here’s a quick guide to help you get started and alleviate any concerns you may have.
Step 1: Browse our vehicles. Go on gettacar.com and search for a car you’re interested in. We have plenty to choose from!
Step 2: Choose a car that fits your lifestyle. Use our variety of filter options to find the exact car you are looking for based on price, body type, or other car features.
Step 3: Get all the facts. When you click on a car you’re interested in & scroll down, we provide additional information pertaining to the vehicle. AND we give you the option to look at the CARFAX instantly!
Step 4: Choose a payment option. We can help you get the best financing terms through our top lending partners, or you can choose to pay cash/finance through a 3rd party. It’s all up to you!
Step 5: Fill out your application. Once you select a financing option, you’ll be directed to fill out the rest of the application. (This includes: name, address, salary, cosigner) This process takes less than 5 minutes!
Step 6: Trade in your vehicle (if you want). Have a trade-in? Tell us about it! This step is optional but we do provide some of the most competitive offers in the industry. Not to mention we’ll pick it up for free when we deliver your new car!
Step 7: Get covered. We give you full control over your car's coverage. We offer our gettacare extended warranty as well as GAP insurance to help give you peace of mind when you're on the road. Both are completely optional and your car already comes with a 90 day/4,500 mile warranty included!
Step 8: Finalize your details with our team. After you submit your application, you’ll receive an email confirmation and a phone call from a customer success hero within 24 hours to help you with finalizing your terms and scheduling your delivery.
Step 9: We deliver your test drive. Sit back and relax, we’ll deliver the car right to your house. We make test driving better than ever because you can do it in your own neighborhood! There's no commitment to the car until you drive it and decide you love it.
Step 10: Get 7 days to drive it and make sure it fits your lifestyle. Don’t like it? We’ll take it back or exchange it for free!
