  • How detailed is the listing? Video walk thru?
  • Can you inspect before the sale?  Can you turn it on?
  • Any records included? Is the VIN displayed so you can Carfax it?
  • Distance from you? Cost of transport / delivery?
  • Are there rules for out of state purchases?
  • Is it “for sale to dealers only” May be because there is something that needs to be addressed before it is roadworthy.
  • Is it “out of state buyers only?” That could be because of smog laws.
  • Some have a policy that ambulances sold on their site need to be fully decommissioned. decals, lenses, radios and sirens removed. Did they do it well or just cut things off?
  • Bidding
    • Don’t get caught up in the excitement of bidding. Have a set max dollar amount and stick with it!
    • You may need to pre-register and leave a sizeable credit card deposit
    • You need to complete the sale if you win. This may include immediate payment and removing the vehicle within a few days.
    • Make sure you have pickup and shipping arranged. If you do not complete the sale, you may forfeit your deposit.
    • You may not want to place a MAX BID in advance of the auction(s). Some people think that the auction houses see these amounts and will drive the price up to that max. Or if they feel it’s not enough, they will outbid you to make sure it doesn’t sell for too low.
    • Bidding the day of the auction may be the best way.
    • These are just opinions, not legal advice!
