Bidacar is committed to providing a faster, easier, and more affordable way of conducting dealer-to-dealer vehicle transactions. As part of our commitment to our dealer community, we have established an arbitration policy to ensure that any disputes are handled in a fair and transparent manner. This policy outlines the guidelines and procedures for arbitration in accordance with the National Frontline standards.
Bidacar will issue a Sales Order and invoice for each vehicle sold. Copies of these documents will be emailed to both the buyer and seller. Buyers and sellers must approve receipt of the purchase order within the same business day of the transaction. It is the buyer's responsibility to arrange for transportation for the vehicles purchased on the Bidacar platform, although Bidacar can assist upon request. Bidacar nor any third parties will be held responsible for arranging transportation.
All vehicles offered for sale through Bidacar are certified and meet the "National Frontline standards." The definition of "frontline-ready" includes:
If a vehicle contracted through Bidacar.com to another dealer is sold either retail or wholesale to another party, or if the buyer backs out after the agreement has been made, the selling or buying dealer will be responsible for paying a $500.00 Unwind fee. This fee will cover transportation, administrative costs, and other related expenses.

If dealer repeats the infraction 3 times he will be subject to lose his membership on Bidacar.com.

At Bidacar, we highly recommend that buyers have their vehicles inspected by a certified technician or mechanic from a third-party inspection company. While it is not mandatory, this step ensures transparency and provides buyers with an unbiased assessment of the vehicle's condition.
Please note that Bidacar does not accept any responsibility for damages resulting from third-party inspection companies' findings. However, in the event of arbitration disputes that cannot be resolved, inspections will be required.
If the issue being arbitrated is deemed conclusive, the expense of the inspection will be borne by the seller. Conversely, if the inspection results are inconclusive, the buyer will be responsible for covering the inspection costs. Initially, Bidacar may cover the cost of the inspection, but the buyer or seller will be invoiced and agrees to reimburse Bidacar for the minimum inspection service cost of $150.00, as stated in this contract.
To ensure a smooth process, inspections must be completed within 72 hours of the purchase date. It is the buyer's responsibility to inform their Bidacar Sales Representative of any inspections requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting their Sales Representative directly.
In the event of a vehicle unwind by the seller, it is crucial that Bidacar is notified on the same business day. Failure to do so will result in the seller being held responsible for the unwind fee and the inspection fee for the reported vehicle.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with our vehicle inspection policy. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
