About Us

Our Founder

Our founder, Albert Thompson, is a former car dealer who understands how important customer trade-ins are for your business.

Throughout his 25-year career, Albert also realized that the trade-in process needed a major overhaul, for dealers and consumers alike.

That’s why he was compelled to launch DriveBid™, the world’s first and only Live Trade Best Offer Marketplace where you can find, bid for and buy the vehicles you need, straight from the customer’s driveway.

With Albert’s leadership and guidance, we’ve made it our mission to provide you with the most streamlined way to buy the vehicles you need, while connecting you with customers who want to buy vehicles, too.

It’s that simple.

Our Team

Our team consists of automotive and technology experts who know vehicles and who understand how to provide an easy-to-use online marketplace where you can make cash offers or bid to buy vehicles straight from consumers.

Our intuitive interface makes it simple to browse inventory, get alerts when vehicles match your criteria, make offers, get the most upstream inventory possible, and connect with new customers.

Our helpful support team is standing by to answer any questions you might have. We’ll assist you in getting the inventory you need and the customers you want.

Our Philosophy

At DriveBid, we know you can’t rely on auctions or wholesalers anymore to get inventory. Times have changed and your inventory acquisition processes need to change as well.

We believe that you should have the ability to connect directly with consumers, wherever they are, to purchase the most upstream inventory available. We’re committed to making the trade-in process as streamlined and convenient as possible – for you and for customers looking to get competitive offers for their cars…or purchase a new car, too.

You get a fast, convenient, easy and trusted way to obtain in-demand inventory. Customers get a painless and hassle-free way to sell their vehicles.

With DriveBid, everyone wins.
