10. When will I get my tag and title?

A: Your title is guaranteed to be issued within (30) thirty days. The title will be processed and turned into the state department for you. When the title has been received, you will receive a phone call advising you to apply for your tag at the tag office in your county. If you do not receive your title within thirty days, you can return the vehicle for a refund of your purchase price plus paid fees. DO NOT SELL OR SPEND MONEY ON A VEHICLE UNTIL YOU RECEIVE YOUR TITLE. You will NOT be refunded money spent on the vehicle when you are refunded for no title.

11. Is there a warranty or guarantee when I buy a car?

A: Most vehicles running through the auction are sold “AS IS”. These cars are indicated by a red light in our lighting system. Cars that are indicated by a green light are called “Drive” cars. If you purchase a car indicated by a green light, you have one hour to test drive the car. If there is a problem with the engine, transmission, or rear end and the repairs would cost in excess of $500.00, you may arbitrate the deal. Any car purchased for less than $2000.00 or is thirteen years or older, is automatically an “AS IS” vehicle.
