About Autozen

Autozen's story

We’ve all had difficulties when it comes to selling our cars. These difficulties range from simple hassles and the amount of work it takes to wondering if you really got a fair price, to more serious issues of anxiety and personal safety, especially when selling privately. We know because we’ve personally experienced these same difficulties.

We thought there must be another way, where selling your car is easy, trusted, safe, and fair. There wasn't. So we started thinking about what would be the best way to sell your car.

 It would use technology to sell your car from the comfort of your sofa. With minimal effort and time commitment. No need to research car prices, no uncomfortable haggling, no unfair sales strategies — no stress. A process that was fast, and yet didn't require you to sacrifice on price. This would be the easiest and fairest way to sell your car.

We've now created it. Welcome to the zen way.

Autozen's background

Autozen launched in Canada in February 2021 to allow consumers to more easily, quickly, and safely sell their used vehicles to dealers.
CEO and founder Olivier Vincent brings 20 years of techpreneur experience in marketplace, mobile, and AI companies. With a career defined by a passion for identifying and solving deep pain points, Vincent has built a team that shares the same vision. 

"We’ve assembled a team with vast tech, product and go-to-market capabilities to address sellers’ frustrations and finally bring much-needed innovation to this industry.” - Olivier Vincent.

The Autozen difference

Sell your car from your couch, usually in under a week.
Autozen handles the whole process for you, so you never need to deal with the buyer directly.
