The Time To Inspect Is BEFORE Winning An Auction
If you are planning on buying a car on eBay Motors, the time to do your homework is before bidding and winning an auction.
Most dealers are used to having inspections done and working to finalize their sale. But a private seller just want’s to be paid after his listing ends and that’s it.
This guy won a 2006 Subaru WRX and decided he wanted the seller to take it to a dealer for an inspection after the fact. Seller does not agree and files an unpaid item strike against the buyer.
I have to say i don’t blame the seller one bit. His ad clearly said cash on delivery with local pickup only. Buyer is wrong bidding and then trying to change the terms of the sale. The time to arrange inspections is before winning an auction, or clicking a buy now listing!
