Default Auctions in general

Hi everyone. Question for you. In re. to auctions such as ebay and BAT, more or less on line auctions, lets say you bid on a car and win the auction, when do you send someone to look at it in person, or don't you?? Do you rely exclusively on what the seller tells and shows you?? For instance, you see a car at an auction, but you see it kind of late. Maybe less then 24 hrs. before the auction ends but you really want this car alot. You bid and win. Maybe not a smart thing to do, but now you own the car, well almost, can you put a disclaimer in that if the car isn't as represented, no deal??? Did I ask and explain this properly?? I think what I am asking, is after winning the auction, do you have time to have the car inspected or are you obligated to pay on the spot?? I know ebay is very sensitive about contacting the owner about anything, so I don't know how this works. Just seems to me you're bidding and buying something sight unseen, at least by you. Would you have an opportunity to add your own language to the sale?? I've bought a few cars privately. Never at an auction. I spoke directly with the seller and made my request or whatever arrangements were necessary, such as an inspection before an agreed price and money exchanged hands. I often wondered how the other (auction) worked, Carmine.

Auction bids are not conditional, once your bid is accepted, you own it subject to the auction rules.

The auctions you mentioned go on for 7 days and it is up to you whether or not you go look at the car. A lot of sellers even suggest that you come and look at it. On both sites you can leave feedback to let people know how you feel about your purchase.

On ebay there is a link to contact seller at any time during or after the sale, and on BaT there is the comments section at the bottom of the page where you can talk and ask questions.

If you don't follow through with the purchase on ebay, you will be the one to get the negative feedback.

OK. Thanks Joe and Lee T. Guess if you don't have enough time to investigate it further, you bid and win, comes down to a leap of faith. I don't think that would be for me, especially when you could be looking at a expensive car. Better do your homework. Think I will stick with non auction sites. Plenty out there. Then I can proceed at my pace, the pace I'm comfortable with, Carmine.

auto and real estate bids are none binding. so if you get there and find the car is not as represented no binding contract exsists. read about it here. https://www.ebay.com/help/policies/r...policy?id=4228

i got a few bidding on eBay, 56 included (3 others too). i only bid on the ones close enough to go there and see the car (and then pay). have always reserved a u/haul trailer in the area. maybe have been lucky, but works for me

I`ve had friends sell cars on Ebay that purchases have not come up with the $$$ therefore no sale went ahead, the car was relisted.

I would inspect the car I`m bidding on would not go by the sellers description.

Very good to know. Thanks for sharing that. Makes me feel better. I'd like to think the seller and buyer both act in good faith, but sometimes things don't work out so well. It's been my limited experience that there are many unscrupulous people out there. Buyer beware. Investigate. Inspect. Do your homework is what it comes down to, Carmine.
