IMPORTANT: If you are new to Ebay and have less than 5 previous transactions completed, or have less than a 95% positive feedback rating, you MUST contact me before placing a bid. Either call first @ (970) 214-0979, or contact us through the upper right "ask seller a question" button on this listing. We welcome and certainly appreciate your business, but we absolutely need to know we are dealing with a legitimate buyer planning on following through on their purchase. By placing a bid on our vehicle, you are entering a legal binding contract to purchase the vehicle. This means if you are the high bidder at auctions end, you agree to purchase it, and you own it. (not inspect & think about it later). I have never been to an auction anywhere where this policy is any different. We have had a few people win top bid and experience buyers' remorse. Oh sorry, I changed my mind, wife won't let me have it, don't have the money, thought it was new, don't like the paint, etc.etc.etc. . ....Well, it doesn't work that way !?!?. Folks, the time to inspect is BEFORE you buy! Understand, We still owe the Auto auctions for these vehicles. It still costs us a week of our time answering questions and $$+ in ebay listing fees, -they do not refund us. We are a small mom and pop business and do not have the time, nor the extra money for those games. Be ABSOLUTELY sure you are able to follow through on your bid. We will take ALL legal actions necessary to protect our interests should it need to come down to that. I know this all sounds terrible, but unfortunately it must be said for the few that have ruined it for the rest of us. Thanks for understanding.

INSPECTIONS: I highly encourage inspections on all vehicles offered, either in person, or by a hired professional. This is to satisfy YOU. There are many different companies that specialize in doing nothing but that. They generally charge between $100-$175 and THAT may truly be a bargain to give you piece of mind and any additional info you may need. The vehicle will be made available for inspection by appointment. If you decide to forego the inspection, there really is no reason you should be unhappy about anything after the auction has ended. Most of our vehicles are generally purchased at dealer only auctions for the sole purpose of resale. We sell these vehicles FAR below any dealer retail prices. This gives you room for any additional repairs that you see fit. They have not undergone ANY type of inspections/ or specific tests for ANYTHING. This includes emissions and safety inspections. We cannot guarantee compliance of the vehicle for your state, because every state has different requirements as far as safety and emissions inspections are concerned. Again, YOU ARE BUYING A USED VEHICLE AS-IS/ NO WARRANTY. All descriptions given are a general observation based on very limited contact with the vehicles. Our definition of nice may not be the same as someone else's. It's just a matter of opinion. I will say, however, we have been able to maintain an impressive positive feedback rating here on Ebay which doesn't happen by accident or by trying to swindle people. (Especially when dealing with used vehicles that people sometimes expect to be new). I buy, as well as, sell on Ebay and don't like giving or getting surprises. You should expect to do some type of basic scheduled maintenance or repairs to any USED vehicle listed on here, or for that matter, anywhere. The one thing I can promise you FOR SURE is that ANY used vehicle you buy will need something. In conclusion, it is ULTIMATELY the buyer's responsibility to have fully satisfied themselves as to the overall condition of the vehicle.
PAYMENT: These auctions are a significant part of our family's livelihood and we rely on it's results to make ends meet. For that reason, the auction is taken VERY seriously. Please make sure you don't have any reasons that would prevent you from following through on the transaction. This includes the required $500 deposit, which is due within 24 hours of auctions end. The complete remaining balance is due within 3 business days of the auctions end. We DO NOT acceptANY credit cards. WE DO NOT accept Pay Pal for the full amount, only for the deposit. We do prefer bank to bank electronic transfer because we have never run into any issues that way. It also posts immediately. Cashiers checks are also acceptable. Cash in person is obviously never turned down.If you are interested in a "Buy it now", I will end the auction early for $2950. For us to end the auction early, (withthe agreed upon "buy it now" price), it will require an immediate $500 deposit thru Pay pal and Full payment thru bank to bank transfer within 24 hours. We can safely store this vehicle for free for up to 3 weeks (or even longer) after full payment has been received.
SHIPPING:All shipping costs and arrangements are the buyer's responsibility. We will gladly assist the shipping company of your choice. YOU will need to make your arrangements with your shipper. However, I do know of areliable shipper that we have used many times. Their name is "Carson Family Transport" and their phone # is (573) 418-2701. Ask to speak with Tom. Obviously, these vehicles will not leave our possession until full payment has CLEARED. Vehicles need to be picked up within 3 weeks of auction end unless previous arrangements have been made. You are more than welcometo pick up the vehicle in person. Many of our customers have flown in and driven home. The Airport you would be flying into is D.I.A. (Denver International Airport). There is an affordableairport shuttle that travels to Loveland. Check out Fort Collins Supershuttle on the web.PLEASE CONTACT US PRIOR TO PURCHASING AIR FAREto ensure our schedules don't conflict. As a licensed Colorado dealer, we are legally CLOSED on Sundays. (State Law). Please make sure you do not show up for delivery on a Sunday.
TITLES: We are a licensed, bonded, and insured Colorado motor vehicle dealer. All vehicles that we purchase and offer for resale have a clear Title. (meaning no lienholders). WeDO NOTdealwith any vehicles with salvage title histories, period. The State of Colorado, along with many other states, automatically exempt the recorded mileage on the title for any vehicle over ten years old, and over 100,000 miles. Therefore, on these vehicles, the titles will simply be "exempted miles" and have a "0" indicated for the odometer reading.The bottom line is this,you will receive a transferrable title to the vehicle within 30 days ofpurchasein person or by mail. We have NEVER run into any instance where we could not get a title for our customers.
We have sold MANY, MANY cars, trucks, and SUV's here on Ebay and have maintained an exceptional feedback rating. Understand we are not trying to hide anything and WANT you to know EXACTLY what it is that you are bidding on. As you can imagine, with any used vehicle, it is nearly impossible to cover every last square inch in detail with this brief listing description. That is why we encourage potential buyers to have these vehicles inspected. These vehicles will generally need minor work, which shouldn't be too bad if you are handy withtools and are familiar with the inside of an auto parts store. I'm ABSOLUTELY sure the vehicle will need some kind of work or maintenance (just like any other used vehicle out there). Please be realistic on your expectations. We doNOT perform complete restorations on these vehicles. We also don't sell them for full retail prices either. We do try to tell you of problems we notice.If there is something important to you that has not been covered, PLEASE ASK questions and I will try to get you the answer A.S.A.P. We have maintained an exceptionally good positive feedback rating here on Ebay since 2001. We are not going anywhere, and are in this business for the long haul. PLEASE review the pictures carefully, as they are invaluable to show possible cosmetic things you may want to know about. .........PLEASE feel free to ask questions!
This is a used vehicle being offered by a licensed Colorado dealer. All used vehicles are sold As-Is / No warranty. Any applicable tax, title, and registration costs are not included in the sale price. Colorado residents are responsible for any applicable State, County, RTD, City taxes. The final bid is the sale price. There will be no set asides, allowances, or haggling after the auctions end. We reserve the right to end this auction early if obviously necessary, or forANY reason. We also reserve the right to refund the purchaser's entire deposit and cancel the transactionif it is found that the vehicle does not pass Colorado's strict emissions testing for some reason.I believe you will find our prices competitive with ANY comparable / year/ mileage/ condition vehicle. That doesn't mean this is written in stone and I am not willing to listen to offers. Please contact me at (970) 214-0979 for any questions not already answered on here.
Whoare we, and how can we be contacted? We are C&J Auto Sales located at 288 N. Garfield Ave., Loveland Co. 80537. My name is Chris and my wife's name is Jen. We are a small family owned business that has been selling to the public for approx.10 years. (By small, I mean just my wife and I). We keep our overhead as low as possible. We also purchase most of our reconditioning parts off Ebay to support the community that has supported us so well throughout the years. My wife and I both wholesaled for several years before that, so we are not new to the business. My phone # is (970) 214-0979. I would say the best way to contact me (if you have a specific question about a vehicle) is through Ebay "ask seller a question", (as I am rarely standing right next to a vehicle that you may be interested in, ready to give an on the spot description). I do check my email often, and will give you an answer back ASAP.
