Safety Tips for Buyers

It's a good idea to take precautions when buying any thing. There's always some risk involved in transferring goods and payments between two parties. Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind.

  • Know Who You're Dealing With
    It's always important to know who you're dealing with. Deals should only go forward if buyers and sellers are comfortable with each other and with the terms of the sale. Ask for information that can be verified, such as an address or home or work phone number.

  • Use The Contact Form
    This is located on every vehicle listing page. As a buyer, you may ask the seller any question you have about the item. If the description is unclear, ask the seller for more information. It is very important that you know what you are buying before actually going ahead with the deal.

  • Keep Records Of All Correspondence
    Keep all emails, notes, shipping documents, and payment information. Be sure to print a copy of the listing. This is your responsibility. We DO NOT provide user information or copies of old listings.

  • Use Common Sense
    If an item seems too good to be true, it probably is. Do some research. For example, look at similar listings or classifieds ads to learn the going rate for the specific items or services that interest you. Please be cautious if the seller requests money to be sent to a different location than is on the listing itself. It may be more difficult to resolve disputes with sellers that are in different states or countries than where the buyer lives. WE DO NOT endorse or verify the information contained in any listing. Your best protection is common sense.

  • Evaluate Your Payment Options
    A deal should only proceed if the buyer and seller are comfortable with each other and with the terms of payment. The buyer and seller should agree on a return policy, as well, in case the buyer is not happy with the item.
