Tips for buying online:
- Have peace of mind! Every vehicle that is sold Green Light comes with a mandatory Post Sale Inspection. Because you can't be here to "kick the tires" yourself, this ensures that the vehicle your purchase is as it was represented, with no major frame or mechanical failings. This $75.00 fee is automatically charged to your bill of sale.
- Bid early, bid often! There is occasionally a fraction of a second delay between when you place your bid and when the auctioneer sees it. Therefore, don't wait to try to "sneak your bid" in at the last second, as the auctioneer may accidentally miss it. If he sees you bidding early on a vehicle, however, he'll typically wait to give you additional time to bid later on in the sale, expecting future bids.
- Know your fees! In addition to the $75.00 Post Sale Inspection fee for every Green Light vehicle, there is also $75.00 internet fee applied to each vehicle sold online. Post Sale Inspections are valid for 7 days or vehicle being driven less than 200 miles from sale date.
- Understand the process! In extremely rare instances, due to the delay between the auctioneer closing the sale and the internet clerk clicking the "Sold" button online, an internet bid can slip in. Although this bid will show up on your computer screen as valid (because it occurred before the internet clerk closed the sale online), it is, in fact, not recognized by the auction as a valid bid because it occurred after the auctioneer declared the vehicle as sold.
- NO Post Sale Inspections on Diesel Vehicles (Even if unit is Green Light).
- As of 7/9/2012 for Ford/Lincoln/Mercury units with a 4.6 3 valve or a 5.4 3 valve. Upper Engine, Valve Train, Varriable Canned Timing Noise is not Arbitratable this is considered typical for this manufacturer (See Ford Motor bulletin for more info)
