Buying and Selling Vehicles - Top of Page
CarBuyCo is a vehicle listing and information service that brings together buyers and sellers. Information about a particular vehicle is supplied by the seller, not by CarBuyCo. The price and other terms of any sale remain subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller. The prices listed by sellers on CarBuyCo often exclude sales tax, finance charges, title, license, regulatory, dealer documentary, emission testing and compliance fees, any or all of which may be added to the listed price to arrive at the final sale price of a particular vehicle. Please note that we cannot verify the information sellers supply or guarantee the vehicles they offer. Nor can we assure the seller of a vehicle that he/she will receive good funds from the buyer. When using this Web site to find a buyer for your vehicle or a vehicle you can buy, we urge you to use the same common sense and good judgment you would use in selling a car through, or responding to, a non-electronic based advertisement.
While CarBuyCo is not required to do so, some listings may be screened before being posted publicly. This process may delay display of your listing. We also reserve the right to screen email messages between sellers and buyers (or potential buyers).
When you offer a vehicle for sale through CarBuyCo, you must be prepared to sell that vehicle at the price and on the terms which you have listed. You must have possession of the actual vehicle listed and the ability to immediately transfer title. To list a vehicle for sale on CarBuyCo, sellers are required to provide certain identifying and contact information. The information must accurately identify the seller and the method of contact must permit potential buyers to communicate directly with the seller. You may not charge any potential buyer for information about any vehicle listed for sale on CarBuyCo, nor may you use our Web site to promote, without our prior written permission, any other Web site, product or service.
Listings are not to be used to advertise more than one vehicle per listing purchased, regardless of listing duration. For this reason, you cannot edit your vehicle's Year, Make, Model or VIN once you've purchased your listing. Always double-check this information before submitting your listing.
Individuals who seek to list more than two vehicles on the CarBuyCo Web site simultaneously, and all dealers, must make other arrangements with us. By using our Web site, you represent that you are not a motor vehicle dealer, that you are not listing a vehicle for sale in your capacity as an owner, employee or representative of a dealer, and that neither you, nor anyone acting on your behalf will list more than two vehicles for sale simultaneously. CarBuyCo reserves the right to deny use of this Web site to anyone who does not comply with these requirements or who otherwise uses our Web site in a manner we consider inappropriate.
Responsibility for the information contained in each listing lies with each seller. You alone are responsible for material you post and for the content of all email messages transmitted through CarBuyCo. We strongly encourage you to provide accurate statements and representations in your listings as to do otherwise undermine a potential buyer’s confidence in the vehicle you're looking to sell. Furthermore, providing inaccurate and/or misrepresentative information is grounds for removal of your listing.
Though we can't monitor every transaction that originates through a listing on CarBuyCo, we may perform random quality assurance tests to confirm that those who offer vehicles for sale over CarBuyCo are prepared to sell the vehicles they advertise at the prices at which, and the terms on which, they advertise them. By using our Web site, you agree to cooperate in these random quality assurance tests. If our tests reveal, or we otherwise learn, that a seller is engaging in unfair or deceptive practices, CarBuyCo reserves the right to deny that seller use of its Web site.
We reserve the right (but assume no obligation) to delete, move, condense or edit any ads, ratings, reviews, content or other postings that come to our attention that we consider unacceptable or inappropriate, whether for legal or other reasons. We retain the right to deny access to anyone who we believe has violated these terms or any other term of this agreement. We will not, in the ordinary course of business, review the content of private electronic messages that are not addressed to CarBuyCo. However, we may occasionally release information concerning such communications when release is appropriate to comply with law (including disclosure in response to a request from a law enforcement agency), to enforce our Visitor Agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our site, our advertisers, the public or CarBuyCo. Notwithstanding the foregoing, CarBuyCo takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any content posted to our Web site by you or other third parties.
By placing a listing on our Web site, you agree to pay the fees specified for the package you select, regardless of whether your vehicle sells as a result of the listing. Listing fees are generally not refundable, even if you provide erroneous information or fail to sell your vehicle.
Our used car listings include vehicles that have been "certified" as meeting certain standards established by manufacturers and/or dealers in connection with their pre-owned vehicle programs. The decision to certify any particular vehicle is made by the certifying manufacturer or dealer, and the vehicle information included in CarBuyCo's certified vehicle listing is provided by the listing dealer. Neither CarBuyCo nor the manufacturer is responsible for the accuracy of any information contained in a certified vehicle listing and only the manufacturer or dealer that certifies a vehicle is responsible for the decision to certify that vehicle. You should familiarize yourself with the terms of the applicable certification program before buying any certified vehicle. Listings purchased by private sellers will not appear in any "certified" area of our Web site. Our certified ads apply only to vehicles certified by the automobile manufacturers with which we have partnerships.
