Car Technology Company Carlypso Brings Concierge and Personal Car Shopper Service to San Diego

Carlypso Expands Hassle-Free Buying and Selling Car Service to San Diego, Saving Car Savvy Consumers Thousands of Dollars

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 23, 2015) - Carlypso, the first technology company to buy and sell used cars hassle-free, announced today it has officially launched its Concierge as well as its Carlypso Deals Personal Car Shopper Service in San Diego, CA.

Carlypso has expanded from its Bay Area headquarters to start servicing customers in recent months in the Los Angeles and Orange County area, Sacramento and now San Diego, offering consumers the opportunity to sell their cars easily and conveniently through Carlypso, and earn an average of between $1500-$2500 more for their car than they would at trade-in. San Diego residents can also now use Carlypso Deals, a new car buying service where Carlypso finds the best deals on inventory before it goes to the dealer.

How it all works

Carlypso Deals:

For consumers interested in buying a car through Carlypso, the company recently launched Carlypso Deals, which is now available in San Diego and surrounding cities. Carlypso buys cars from a trade in or a lease from the trade network it participates in, getting a "first peek" at these cars so it can purchase them for a buyer before the vehicle ever heads to a dealer lot. Consumers go to and enter in what they are looking for in terms of model, make and year. They immediately see the inventory of used cars that Carlypso can buy for them, and put in a request for information on available vehicles right at the site. 

Within a week, Carlypso can deliver the vehicle directly to the consumer in San Diego.

Traditionally, consumers have gone to dealers to find used cars, and dealers will often mark up these cars $1500-$2500 while waiting for a buyer. Carlypso analyzes thousands of used car transactions on a weekly basis and suggests weekly deals for which the discounts to the dealer prices are highest. By getting early access to the vehicles and not incurring escalated holding costs, Carlypso does not need to mark up prices and can pass the savings on directly to the consumer. Carlypso is the first online car service that is 100% transparent about every step of the process. The consumer knows exactly the condition of each car, exactly what Carlypso paid to acquire the car, and exactly how much money the company is making on each car deal (which is fixed at $500 for cars less than $20,000).

"We are thrilled to extend our car buying and selling services to San Diego," said Nicholas Hinrichsen, Co-Founder of Carlypso. "We know how painful and expensive the whole process of buying or selling a car can be, and our goal is to eliminate the unnecessary hassle and costs that inevitably happen at a dealership. Carlypso is saving customers thousands of dollars, and is able to provide complete transparency on pricing, car condition and more which is something frankly at this point car buyers should expect."

Carlypso's Concierge Car Selling Service:

Carlypso is the easiest means to sell your used car. With Carlypso, sellers just enter their car details on Carlypso's website, and Carlypso generates a fair market price from analyzing 1.2 million vehicle transactions each week. For all cars -- Carlypso can provide an instant cash offer and have the vehicle picked up within 24 hours often for thousands more than competing dealerships might offer. Carlypso's data accuracy and fair-market appraisal process allows buyers to get the most money for their cars.
