About IQautos

IQautos has redesigned the car shopping experience around the customer. Forget the painful traditional dealership model, where it requires an in-person visit, multiple dealership personnel, and most of a day to make a purchase. How about one expertly-qualified car geek to guide your entire shopping experience and the dealership visit is optional? At IQautos we call them a Genius, and they’re here to help you, not sell you. Wouldn’t you rather deal with an extremely knowledgeable decision-maker that handles everything from general questions and trade appraisals, to financing, warranty coverage, and nationwide delivery?


My name is Jim Thompson, founder of IQautos. I started buying and selling cars while in college. After graduation, my side hustle allowed me to buy an Around the World plane ticket and set off on a backpacking adventure of a lifetime. I returned with a better appreciation for opportunities in the US, and decided to start a business. In 1998, Jim Thompson Autos, Inc. later to become IQautos was founded in metro Atlanta, GA. Technology paved the way to expand monopolized local markets and we have leveraged it for over 20 years. Our team is the differentiator. Extremely knowledgeable car geeks focused on offering the best possible car shopping experience. We have been disrupting the auto industry since before it was cool. IQautos built our foundation on product knowledge and true customer based service. Now with thousands of customers across the US and many other countries we have built a great reputation. You will enjoy the refreshing way we do business.
