"Sell-My-Car" Vehicle Representation Program Q&A

 

 

How do I know if you can sell my vehicle for me?

We don't sell just any vehicle. We only sell vehicles that meet or exceed our AlphaCars high standards. We will perform an initial visual inspection at no charge.

 

My vehicles passes visual inspection, then what?

Our service department will perform a general check up on your auto. A detailed evaluation report will be generated based on this checkup which will identify areas of concern, as well as a cost estimate to repair or perform needed service. The report will also separate those defects, if any, which impair the safety or substantially impair the use of the vehicle. These types of defects will need to be repaired or disclosed to the buyer. Additionally at this time our auto marketing specialist will perform a thorough market analysis to establish the vehicle’s value and recommend a marketable price for a timely sale.

 

Do I have to repair my vehicle before AlphaCars place it for sale?

Any safety related items, functionality features, drivability items will need to be repaired. Our loyal customers will expect that from us.

 

Does AlphaCars provide a warranty for my vehicle?

No. AlphaCars does not provide warranty for cars sold under private party representation program.

The Used Vehicle Warranty Law in Massachusetts requires private party seller (vehicle owner) to inform buyers about any and all known defects which impair the safety or substantially impair the use of the vehicle. The law applies to all private party sales regardless of sales price or mileage. If buyer discovers a defect that impairs the vehicle’s safety or substantially impairs the use, and can prove that the seller knew about the defect but failed to disclose it, buyer may cancel the sale within thirty days of purchase. The seller must refund the amount paid for the vehicle, less 15 cents per mile of use. More on the warranty obligations.

 

Once the above is done, how much do you charge me to sell my car?

Our fees are very reasonable and are based on the level of involvement. Fees are set by agreement with you. We will  launch and maintain extensive marketing to make sure your car is visible on any computer in the world with internet connection. We will take 40-60 professional quality photographs, generate vehicle description with vehicle options and packages, post vehicle and maintaining listings on AlphaCars.com, Cars.com (posting fee of $75 is included in marketing expense). We will also provide CarFax report (fee of $39 is included in our marketing). Your vehicle listing will also be pushed to the following sites for even more on-line exposure:
