We will contact you to confirm your offer and to answer any questions you may have. We will then relay your offer to the seller. If the seller is keen, we will set an appointment for you to view the vehicle. There is no legal obligation to purchase the car. If the buyer retracts their offer without a valid reason, we will ban the buyer from our platform.

If the condition of the vehicle does not meet the description in the listing, a lower offer can be negotiated. If the buyer retracts or revises their offer without a valid reason, we will ban the buyer from our platform.

Lemon Law does not cover purchases from direct owners. For a greater peace of mind, we recommend sending the car for an evaluation first. Motorist has partnered VFIT by VICOM to assist car buyers with their car evaluation requests. VFIT will provide a complete vehicle report after the evaluation. Please inform us if you are interested in a car evaluation.

Yes, you can. We offer flexible and competitive loan options (bank and in-house) for your used car purchase. We can also assist you with your motor insurance policy. If you require a loan or insurance for your car, simply let us know.

We will put your car through our in-housing bidding system to help you find the highest price for your vehicle. Once the bidding is complete, we will deliver the highest offer for your car. You can use that amount to offset your purchase.
