Condition validation is part of the Awesome Joe Auctions Buy Confident ProcessSM and helps demonstrate your vehicle’s true value to our community of motor enthusiasts, which means a higher chance of it selling fast to someone who will appreciate it as much as you do.
You do not have to include conditions on your listing but if you do, you’re agreeing to participate in our Buy Confident Process meaning the buyer can request a report validating those conditions. AFTER your vehicle sells, you will pay a small fee to have the conditions validated by a third party or parties of your choosing and have the report sent to the buyer. The buyer can request a specific validator be used or to add specific conditions to the report, but it is your choice to accommodate those requests or not. Buyers can only request a condition validation report AFTER they have purchased your vehicle, assuring you don’t pay a cent until you’ve sold your listing.
The Buy Confident process also requires the buyer to make a $500.00 (or less*) deposit. This deposit will be placed in a secure escrow account of your choosing and will be released to you after the condition validation report has been sent to the buyer. If you fail to provide the report in a timely manner the deposit will be returned to the buyer. You have two days after a buyer has agreed to purchase your vehicle to have the escrow account of your choice active. Don’t worry, our Awesome Joe Agents can help setup the escrow account.
*If your vehicle sells for under $5000.00, the buyers required deposit will be 10% of whatever the final sale price is.
