Who is Texas Direct Auto?

Founded in 2002, Texas Direct Auto is one of the largest independent auto dealerships in the nation and the single biggest dealer on eBay Motors. We have brick and mortar Super Centers in Dallas and Houston, where we store, recondition, and ship thousands of vehicles every year. We also have multiple Sell Us Your Car centers around Texas, where you can easily sell your car on the spot. Click here.

Where do you get your cars?

Texas Direct Auto purchases the majority of our vehicles from private sellers around the country. We also source inventory from dealerships, credit unions, auctions, and banks.

The vast majority of the vehicles we sell are late-model and low-mileage. Many are still under factory warranty. Our vehicles have clean titles, meaning we do not sell salvage, rebuilt, or reconstructed cars.

Are there additional fees besides the purchase price?

All sales are subject to a flat $150.00 Documentary Fee, a $39.75 State Inspection Fee, and a Texas Vehicle Inventory Tax based on .001681 of the purchase price (for example, a $10,000 purchase = $16.81 VIT tax).

Our document and dealer service fees are collected by Texas Direct Auto and are not required by law.

Texas residents pay 6.25% sales tax, as well as registration and inspection fees. Out-of-state buyers may register and pay applicable taxes in their home state.

6. We send you duplicate copies of the bill of sale, one for you to keep, and one for you to sign and return.

Who should bid on TDA cars?

We ask that customers get their finances pre-approved by Texas Direct Auto before they bid on any eBay Motors auctions. Apply for financing now.

This does not apply to those who plan on paying cash in full.

If you have questions about financing, a specific vehicle, or how the process works, please give us a call at (832) 358-3550.

Do you have titles on hand for your vehicles?

Titles may not always be immediately available for the vehicles we list on eBay. They’re sometimes still in transit from banks, other dealerships, and the state. However, Texas Direct Auto is a licensed and bonded dealer in Texas and we guarantee clean titles on every vehicle that we sell.

If having a title on hand is critically important to you, please let us know prior to finalizing your purchase.

Is delivery really free?

Yes! Texas Direct Auto offers free delivery anywhere in the continental United States. For customers in Alaska, Hawaii, and outside the U.S., we will deliver the vehicle to your U.S. port of choice for no charge. You will be responsible for additional shipping costs.

What about extended warranties?

Texas Direct Auto offers a variety of extended warranty plans. Call now to talk to a salesperson about our warranty offerings: (832) 358-3550

What type of service do you do to the cars before selling them?

Texas Direct Auto vehicles must pass multiple inspections for safety, mechanical, and cosmetic issues. If we find any minor issues, an experienced mechanic will fix them up before we list the car. In the event we find a problem with a vehicle that could affect its future value or performance, that vehicle will be shipped to wholesale and not listed on eBay.
