General Questions

The inventory we offer for sale is either a trade-in / lease return or by way of consignment. All of them are inspected to be in great condition, well maintained, and have been cared for. And don’t worry – they’ve all got clean titles! We would never ever touch a salvage title vehicle. 

The vehicles in our Zoom Select Program come from manufacturer databases that are made available to select stores, like us, to purchase at a set price before they are offered at auction.

Yes. Zoom secures great financing options for applicants through our partners, check out the finance page for more information. We know that dealing with some banks can be a serious speed bump, so we’ll be there to help every step of the way.

Absolutely! While all cars listed at Zoom Auto will pass a New Jersey State safety inspection, we are not mechanics so we can’t personally evaluate the quality or condition of the vehicle that you’re buying. Fortunately, there are some great services out there, in addition to your local trusted mechanic, that can give you a greater comfort level regarding the quality and condition of your new ride. Pre-purchase inspections are available at most independent mechanics and generally cost about $100 – you can also access great mechanics through on-line services. Some people like to do this work on their own, but if you want to eliminate all the hassle, our staff are here to help! We can arrange an inspection with the mechanic or service of your choice, or recommend someone we trust – feel free to let us handle the process for you!

Buyers at Zoom Auto Group will pay a wholesale transfer fee of $892, documentary fee $395 (temporary license plate, temporary registration, title reassignment, document processing and handling), and New Jersey taxes (7%) if you are a New Jersey resident. The only instance an out-of-state (not a resident of New Jersey) will pay taxes is if you finance with us, in which case it is the tax rate from where the vehicle will be registered. Vehicle Registration fees are only collected if you finance via Zoom Auto Group and range in price depending on vehicle and state ($130 - ~$400).

Zoom Auto Group is an internet based hybrid vehicle exchange venue. Instead of the typical buy-low, sell-high auto dealerships, we offer a service that allows buyers to choose from in store AND nationwide manufacturer databases for vehicles at wholesale prices. 

We also offer sellers a means to a fair value for their vehicles without the hassle of selling it themselves whether they choose to consign with us or go for an instant cash offer. Zoom receives the same flat fee from our selling customers regardless of the sales price, so our staff does not care whether you buy a Ferrari or a Ford Focus, only that you have a great buying experience. 

Whether you’re buying or selling - we leave you in complete control, while we handle all the work. We can also provide you with services you would find at a traditional dealership such as financing and warranties.

Our streamlined approach to vehicle buying and selling follows through to the check-out process. We aim to have you in and out within 30 minutes or less, unless you want to hang out a bit longer, that’s cool too.
