Auto-mates was founded in late 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. While the rest of the world changed we noticed an industry that was rooted in place and having a difficult time adapting: automotive sales. We set out to find a way to help not only the consumer but the dealerships as well. With some of us having a background in automotive we knew there were a lot of good dealerships out there. We just needed to find a way to open the lines of communication between dealers and consumers. By taking some of the best practises of honest dealerships and mixing them with the best practises of savvy car buyers we created a new platform: auto-mates.
Here, transparency and communication are key. By using our service, dealers have agreed: to honor their prices on new vehicles, be honest and clear, provide information on vehicles that they have in stock, and offer great deals to customers without the hassle of being in the dealership. When using our software consumer information will not be divulged to dealerships until an appointment is booked. No more email barrages. Just honest stores giving honest deals to happy clients. Going to a dealership just got a lot less scary.
