Autopitch website revealed, set to change the way we buy cars

At one point in time, we will need to buy a car. This usually implies hours of wasted time spent on the Internet browsing through many websites that sell cars, comparing prices or writing down numbers of specific dealers.

Seeing as how it’s our money on the line, things really shouldn’t be that way. That’s why a new website has appeared, Autopitch.com, which promises to change the way we shop for cars online.

How does it do that? By making the dealers hunt for buyers. The system is pretty simple, and can be described as a reverse Ebay, for example. Those who want to purchase a car can post an ad, describing the model and other details, and dealers will be able to pitch their offers to the buyer.

“Autopitch is the reverse of eBay Motors,” said Brad Chase, founder of autopitch.com. “People post the car they want and dealers bid on their business. This saves a huge amount of time and effort usually spent shopping for a car online.”

Most of the times, dealers tend to take customers for granted. But let’s not forget that buyers have the money and are doing the dealers a favor by opting to purchase from them. Hopefully, Autopitch will be able to finally put some leverage in the hands of the common user.

    Such a smart idea, i’ve bought three new car and each time i sent a mass email to every dealer within 1000 miles. right away you could tell who wants to play ball but it was a lot of work…. i have bookmarked autopitch and will use them next time for sure!! awesome idea Mr. Chase!!

    CarWoo! has been doing this for about a year now. We have a large dealer network and are selling a lot of cars this way. It’s good to see some competition coming our way.

    That is a great idea! My question is: does this end up costing the customer more for the car since this service has to make some money for referring customer to those dealers. Am I right, this is a form of auto sale referral service?

    Yeah carwoo.com does something similar and http://www.truecar.com takes it a step further and really takes all the work out of it. Which ever you choose it beats going to a dealer.
