Buying or leasing a car can be stressful. You want to find the car that fits your needs and your budget. If you’re like me, you end up doing a ton of research, talk with some questionable salespeople, and end up with a headache.
DriveWise Auto, a Charity Driven® concierge auto-buying and leasing company, not only takes the headache away from finding a new car, but they also donate money to a charity in your name when you buy or lease from them. Based in Los Angeles, California, DriveWise Auto’s expert advisors find the new or used vehicle for you, negotiate the price and even help with trade-ins, financing and delivery of the car. And, believe me, these guys know about cars.
When the purchase is made, they use proceeds from the sale to make a donation to your favorite charity. It’s an added bonus that gives back to the community. Take a look at some of the nonprofits they support on a regular basis
According to Bryan Weissman, co-founder and CFO, “We believe that there should be a connection between consumers, their vehicles, and their favorite charities, so we provide a platform that allows people to buy and lease vehicles comfortably, to receive extremely competitive pricing, and that creates that connection. There are no other auto-buying services that do what we do, and though we wish that there were more, we’re proud of our business model that allows us to give back to the communities that matter most to our clients.”
Since established in 2007, DriveWise Auto has delivered nearly 1,000 cars and donated more than $90,000 to numerous local and global charities, all chosen by their clients.
Personally, I’d love to have a business like this in Maine. Philanthropy and car buying made easy? Sign me up.
