Eric was referred to me by a friend. I'm located in AZ and even though he is based in CA, he was EXTREMELY knowledgable and was able to find me the perfect car at great value within 5 days. Would highly recommend!

I found the Buy Your Ride from CraigsList ad. I found a great deal on a used Infiniti M45 and contacted the phone number that was provided. I spoke with Eric, and he was really polite and professional from the very first day. Usually I'm skeptical of CraigsList transactions, due to so many scammers on CG.. but I was able to make the safe transaction at his office in Encino. Eric was flexible on his time and schedule and also completed a inspection, rear brake pads , and valve cover gasket replaced prior to purchase and was added to my invoice. Overall, I found a great deal and brought the car home and received all documents following weeks. I would definitely recommend Buy Your Ride to purchase, sell, or lease any cars..these guys are really top notch at what they are doing. Thank you Eric.

Eric was able to get me a great deal on an absolutely beautiful Alfa Romeo. All I had to do was tell him what I wanted, send a few documents he asked for, and in less than 72 hours I was driving off the lot with my new car. Very easy and convenient experience!

I have known Eric for 20 years. Trustworthy and Loyal. This is a family shop, with Old School values and doing business the way it should be done. Customer service is a Lost Art. It has a home here. Five Stars should be 10.

I’m not sure where to even begin with this company... wow... just WOW! I’ve never experienced such great and amazing customer service from anyone!!! Eric went above and beyond to not only make sure that I found a vehicle that had every feature that I wanted (which is difficult because I’m VERY picky ha!) but he handled it like a champ!! Not only did he find my perfect car, but I got the car much less than what the dealership wanted to charge!!! My car was delivered to my door! Eric handled all the paperwork and within a few days I was ready to cruise again. If you want top notch service without dealing with the hassle of car-salesmen at the dealership lot (who by-the-way like to call, email and pressure you 10x per day) and loads of paperwork, save yourself the time, money, stress and just call Eric! This will be my “go to” guy for now on! :)

My experience with Eric was incredible! He was thorough, reliable, has amazing relationships and I ended up with an incredible car with an incredible deal!

The guys here are great. Eric, Mario mad Chris are all professional, helpful and friendly. Eric has several years experience and is a problem solver. He can help and give ideas for any situation. Thanks for everything, I will certainly refer you to friends and work with you again!!!

I was dreading going through the car buying process, but Eric made it as easy and efficient as I'd ever experienced. His relationships in the car sales community made it possible for me to get the exact car I wanted, hassle free, for a steal of a price. His knowledge and experience about the buying process and warranty options made me feel like the tables were tued on the dealership and we where in the drivers seat. Literally. If you're in the market for a new or used car you really can't afford to not use his service.

Nice guys, sold me a nice car, didn't try to pressure me, it took some time but that's what buying cars is like. I will likely be recommending this company to my friends.

Eric was supper helpful, I spoke to him in the moing and by the time I left work my car was waiting for me.

Working with Eric at Buy Your Ride was a great experience! From the start of helping us identify the right car for us, to the finish of helping us with the purchase process, Eric was great. I would highly recommend Buy Your Ride for anyone looking to buy their next car!
M. WongFebruary 02, 2018
Buying a car from Eric was such a breeze. Not only did he get me the best deal in town, he had it delivered to my door. No fuss, no hassle. So awesome! I will definitely go through him next time I need a car!!!

Everybody was real nice helpful.

This is the first time that I have leased a car through a car broker. All I can say is if you are looking to lease a new car, Eric is your man! He made the process effortless. He was attentive, responsive and found me exactly what I was looking for. If you like great customer service, look no further. He arranged for the car to be brought to me and my old car to be taken away. No hassle, no haggling, just a smooth, uncomplicated process.
MIKE PEREZJanuary 09, 2018
Eric was great through the whole experience. He found what I wanted nearby. He then told me to stop by the dealership to test drive and they had it ready for me. When I went back to lease the vehicle Eric was already at the dealership with all the negotiating handled by him and i just had to sign the paperwork. This is the only way to buy or lease a vehicle from now on!

110% would recommend Buy Your Ride (Eric). The car purchase experience was the smoothest and easiest I've ever experienced (and the Jeep I wanted had to be ordered from the factory configured the way I wanted). I would highly recommend contacting Eric if your in the market for a new or used car (or even thinking about it and looking to find out your options). He's extremely knowledgeable of all auto brands and will definitely get you the car or truck your looking for. Again, I would 110% recommend contacting him for your next vehicle purchase.

After finding out that I needed to move out of LA, I contacted Eric to buy my car after already visiting the dealership that I purchased the car from as well as Carmax. Eric went above and beyond to give me the best price that he could buy it for (way above both the dealership and carmax). He was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was so accommodating and made the process extremely easy and convenient for me. Will absolutely recommend him.in the future and will never need to contact anyone other than him to buy or sell a car for me in the future.

Highly satisfied with Buy Your Ride. I had a very complicated double transfer that I wanted to perform for a small amount of money but Eric was very help, courteous, attentive and professional. Not only was he a nice and personable guy but he went out of his way to help me with a myriad of different documents by filling out pdf draft copies for me to sign and even video calling to help me out. He was very detailed and diligent to give me clear instructions for what should have otherwise been a very difficult process. I felt the price they gave us was fair and the service was exceptional. I would highly recommend if you are looking to sell a car and want a knowledgeable and patient seller to work with.
Stacey OwensOctober 25, 2017
Eric is the BEST! He just helped me with a deal and made the whole process easy. He answered all of my questions and walked me through all phases. I will be sure to call him first with any future car purchases or sales.
Tim SpaffordFebruary 17, 2018
Definitely the new way to buy a car any car. Whatever year make and model Eric seems to find it !! He spoke with several different Mazda dealerships to get the best price for me . , Tim Zoom Zoom Zoom!!

I live in Bakersfield, and I've been looking for a certain Jeep for about 3 mo. I found the Jeep on line at Buy your Ride at 7:30 am. I called and left a message and Eric retued my call on his way to work, Even before work he started, working with me and got it set up to go in, test drive and possibly buy the Jeep. It's an hour and 45 min from my house to there, but had to wait for my wife to go with me. we didn't leave until 4:30 that afteoon, and when we got there I saw the small dealership that didn't look like much and wasn't sure I wanted to go in, but we did and very glad we did, they weren't pushy or demanding. They had the car right there for me to test drive and I loved the Jeep, it was what exactly what I had been looking for. Eric and his team were very attentive and were able to process the paperwork very efficiently and they stayed after hours just to make sure everything was done correctly and I was happy. I'm 70 years young and have bought a lot of cars in my life and they impressed me, they don't spend their profits on multi-million dollar car lots and make you wait hours to buy a car. They find out what you are looking for and if they don't have it they are willing to locate what you want and get it for you. It was the first time in a long time I didn't spend 3 or 4 hours waiting in line just to buy a car, so if you want a professional to help you into your next car, go see Eric and his team, They will treat you with respect as a person, not just a number waiting in line for hours.

I used Buy your Ride to get my new Range Rover in May 2018. There was a specific Color interior and exterior that I wanted. With their assistance they located a vehicle in Virginia. They help with all negotiations, paperwork and saved me money & time then got the car shipped to me. I recommend them if you're in the market for a new car.
David ColeSeptember 22, 2018
Highly recommended team! Eric helped me purchase a tough to find Pacifica and made the entire experience smooth and painless. He operates with the utmost character and integrity and it’s obvious that he cares about his clients and their satisfaction. Looking forward to using their services again!
Debra Cohen RossOctober 31, 2017
I am grateful for the honest, professional and courteous approach to our transaction. I was overwhelmed with the thought of selling our son’s car but was not happy with what the dealership offered us. I called BUY YOUR RIDE and spoke to Eric Van Ace and all my worries were resolved. Here is the kicker.. He matched Carmax and picked the car up at our home!!! Buy Your Ride is a must go to first for buy outs AND NEW CAR SALES!!!! Thank you Eric! We are grateful for a stress free transaction.
