If you are looking for a car, truck, motorcycle or boat, go on over to the Ebay motors website at www.motors.ebay.com.
On http://www.motors.ebay.com, you can look at both new and used cars and trucks on auction. You can find the autos on sale through a variety of ways. Firstly, you can browse the cars by type. For example, you are able to look at all the SUVs, minivans or trucks. There are even specialty car types, such as antique collector car models, and cars that use alternative fuel. If you are in the market for a used car, you are also able to browse specifically the certified pre-owned auto category. Secondly, you can browse for a car based on the make and model. For example, you can look for all the Ford Taurus autos on auction, or all the Lexus ES cars. Lastly, you can also provide your zip code, and the site will show you all the autos that are being auctioned in your area. Most of the shown items will be from dealers in your vicinity, but there will be the odd car for sale by a private individual.
In addition to entire autos, parts and accessories are also available at the ebay motors site. The most convenient way to find a specific part for a specific car is to choose your make, model and year, and then enter a keyword to search for your desired part or accessory. The Ebay parts store is especially good for finding parts of antique cars that are no longer in production.
Many people buy cars on Ebay Motors every year, and most of them are satisfied with the transaction. However, a small number of buyers end up being defrauded, or are otherwise unhappy with their purchases. To ensure that you do not end up in this minority, there are several important rules to follow when bidding for an auto on Ebay. Firstly, you never bid on a car sight unseen, unless there is an explicit clause in the contract that allows you to cancel after you inspect the car. You should always do a physical inspection, and if possible do a test drive, before you start bidding. Ideally, you should also get the car inspected by a mechanic, although some owners may balk at this request. Secondly, you should always get a CarFax report with the VIN number, which is available for $25 for an unlimited number of cars. Although Ebay offers a free AutoCheck report, CarFax offers a more detailed report, especially for older vehicles where there is a significant chance of odometer fraud, so the extra expense is definitely worth it. Lastly, if at all possible, pay with a credit card or a personal check. Avoid paying with cash. This way, you can stop a check or do a credit card chargeback if something goes wrong. If you follow these rules, you will most likely have a pleasant car buying experience.
