Swap Motors is the new world in automotive commerce. Swap Motors was created in 2016 when founder Alex Johnson grew frustrated with the process of trying to sell his car to a dealership. He seized the opportunity to transform a broken industry that has delivered a poor consumer experience. Typical vehicle sales are bogged down with multiple middlemen driving dollars away from buyers and sellers. Swap Motors maximizes value for consumers who can now shop and sell safely on the first of its kind peer-to-peer automotive sales platform.
