Purchasing a classic car on eBay pretty much requires having a
high-speed internet connection. Dial up will work, but because of the
pace of most auctions, chances are you can miss a deal simply by not
being able to bid quickly enough. Registering as an eBay member will
allow you to watch auctions without bidding to see how they work as well
as research possible purchases. It is also recommended to practice
bidding on small items to get a feel for how the whole process works to
avoid ending up with financial problems if you make a mistake on a
larger purchase. Once you feel confident in your bidding skills, begin
researching all the makes and models of classic cars that you are
interested in purchasing. There are a few key phrases on eBay to keep in
mind while doing this. “Reserve” is the lowest minimum price
acceptable for the item, “buy it now” is the price the seller will
accept up front and “best offer” allows the potential buyer to make
an offer directly to the seller. A “meet the seller” function also
includes customer feedback on the seller and a “buy safely” option
that provides protection of up to $20,000 per vehicle against fraud.
These functions allow potential buyers the ability to purchase classic
cars on eBay in several different ways as well as help them make
informed decisions on purchases.
After you find a vehicle that you want to buy, do as much research as
possible. It is essential to read the description of the classic car
thoroughly as well as obtain a full description of the history, current
conditions and features of the car. If any of this information is not
included in the car’s description there is an “ask seller a
question” link at the top of the listing that will allow you to speak
with the seller directly. The listing should include a good number of
pictures, especially of the interior, exterior, undercarriage, trunk,
engine compartment and close-ups of any disclosed blemishes. Make sure
you understand any possible problems that may hinder registration of the
vehicle, such as liens or lack of documentation, before making an offer
or bidding. If you are worried about being scammed, there are several
things to watch out for. If the seller refuses to let you see the car in
person, provides only what look like stock photos of the car or will
only accept wire transfers for payment, chances are they are not
legitimate. It is also important to use common sense when buying a
classic car online. Classic cars for sale on eBay typically go for 10%
less than what they would at a dealership, but if the price of the
vehicle seems too good to be true, for example, a $20,000 car listed for
$10,000, then chances are it is.
Once you have all of the information needed to make an informed
decision, make an offer or start bidding. The following links will
provide you with even more tips and tricks to make your dream of owning
a classic car a reality.
