How do I protect myself when buying a vehicle?
eBay Motors has programs to help protect you from fraud or misrepresentation when you're buying a vehicle. You should also learn all you can about the seller and the vehicle before you make a purchase. Here are some steps to take before you buy or place a bid on a vehicle:
Know your seller
Research the vehicle
Understand the buying process
Review the AutoCheck vehicle history report by clicking the FREE
History Report tab in the listing.
Get a third party to inspect the vehicle for you by clicking the Order an independent inspection link on the right side of the listing.
Read the seller's payment instructions and explore financing if needed.
Determine if you will ship the vehicle, travel to pick it up, or buy locally.
