VEHICLE INFORMATION DISCLOSURE AND CONTAIN WAIVER: Details not included in this description may or may not be shown in the photos. The description and photos do not show every detail and issue regarding this vehicle. Seller is not responsible for any errors or omissions in the description. It is the customer's responsibility to ask any questions about the vehicle that are not shown the photos and/or explained in this description. Many internal body and power train parts and components cannot be inspected and their condition is therefore unknown. All vehicles are sold used, as is, where is, with no guarantees or warranties of any kind. By receiving vehicle information containing this disclosure waiver statement, customer acknowledges and agrees to the conditions as set forth. Customer further acknowledges that he/she has read, understands and agrees with the Sales Policies,Terms and Conditions as set forth in this web page section.
If you decide to purchase a vehicle, I send you my references, a signed Bill of Sale/Agreement, a copy of my standard shipping contract and my wire transfer banking instructions. You print the instructions and give them to your bank. I only accept wire transfers. I do not accept Cashier's Checks, personal or business checks or cash. All payments shall be in United States Dollars (USD) only.
REFUNDS AND FOREIGN EXCHANGE DISCLOSURE:
If for any reason the transaction cannot be completed, any and all refunds shall be paid back in USD only. Only the amount originally received in USD shall be refunded. For international sales, there are no foreign exchange adjustments of any kind regarding returns. No refunds of any kind or for any reason are granted for completed vehicle sales.
USA GROUND SHIPPING:
Once the payment is made, I get the vehicle ready to ship which takes 5-10 business days. Then I list the shipment on CentralDispatch.com. I set the price and the terms of the transportation. All shipping quotes are subject to change due to changing market conditions and foreign exchange rates. Once listed, I then wait until a transporter agrees to transport the vehicle. I then issue a Shipping Agreement and email you a copy. I coordinate the shipment until it arrives at it's destination. You pay the transporter COD. Once the vehicle leaves my property on the transporter, I am no longer responsible for loss, damage or theft. It takes anywhere from one week to several months or more before a transporter agrees to transport the shipment. Shipping time depends entirely on market conditions and availability of transporters hauling loads from the vehicle location to the vehicle destination. I do not call up transporters and book a shipment. I list the job on Central Dispatch and wait until a transporter agrees to haul the load.
CANADA GROUND SHIPPING:
For Canadian shipments, I locate a towing company at your nearest port of entry and ship the vehicle to them. You can then have it picked up at the towing company and take it across the border. For Canadian shipments, the ground transportation to the USA side must be paid in advance. I also file the US Customs documents at the USA-side port office for you 72 hours before the vehicle crosses the US border into Canada. This includes a copy of the title and a cover letter from you expressing intend to export the vehicle. Then US Customs clears the vehicle for export. This procedure is required to export the vehicle out of the USA.
INTERNATIONAL CONTAINER SHIPPING:
For international shipments other than those bound for the Canadian border, I first ship the vehicle to our container shippers in Long Beach, California or another port if more economical or if requested. The shipping companies we use are Amid Logistics, LLC www.oceanfreightusa.com Schumacher Cargo Logistics www.schumachercargo.com or CFR Line www.cfrline.com For the lowest rate, Schumacher or CFR usually consolidates the vehicle with other vehicles and goods (shared container) and ships the container to your port. You can also have your own private 20' or 40' container. It arrives much faster and costs considerably more, except if you have 2-3 vehicles, then it is considerably cheaper. I also arrange RO/RO roll on/roll of for running and driving vehicles when necessary. All oversized vehicles must be shipped RO/RO or you have to pay for 3 containers because of overhang on both sides of a flat rack container. For international shipments other than Canadian border shipments, it usually takes 3-4 months total from the time you purchase the vehicle until you receive it. For container shipments, all ground and container costs must be paid in advance. If you are not familiar with importing vehicles, you need to hire a Customs Broker at your destination port. You can also arrange your own transportation or pick up the vehicle. All container charges must be paid in advance. Vehicle cleaning, if required, is an additional charge of $250 USD, or by estimate depending on what is needs to be done.
All vehicles are sold with titles. The title is mailed to you Certified Mail for USA and Registered Mail for Canadian shipments. For international shipments, I send you a copy of the title and the original title travels with the vehicle. No vehicles can be exported out of the USA without the title in hand. I sometimes have vehicle titles on hand when you buy the vehicle. If I need to file for a new title, it takes from 4-12 weeks to get it processed using our regular title process in Montana or Idaho.
