We want your experience with UVA to be as successful as possible. Here are some tips that will help:
ADESA UVA issues a sales disposition for each vehicle sold. Copies are emailed to both the buyer and seller.
All vehicles offered for sale are retail-ready unless otherwise disclosed. Normal wear and tear is expected. Minor paintwork is acceptable if done to industry standards.
The UVA definition of retail-ready includes:
Anything that affects the retail sale of that vehicle needs to be disclosed.
Ineligible vehicles for our sale(s) include:
Dealer buy and sell fees vary by location, contact your local UVA site for fees. All other fees will be assessed as follows:
The local UVA sites work with buyers on arranging transportation. Transportation fees are separate and charged based on distance.
For any car sold through UVA that isn’t available for pickup—whether it’s retailed or out of stock—the seller is charged a $275 sale fee. The fee will then be remitted to the buyer, who otherwise would have received the car.
Buyers have three business days after delivery to inspect and accept the vehicle or request arbitration. Arbitration window is closed 10 business days from sale date regardless of transportation.
On accepted vehicles, the seller will send a clear title and smog certificate (if applicable), and the buyer will send payment to the facilitating auction location. The facilitating auction address can be found at the bottom left of the sale disposition.
UVA is proud to offer inventory financing through most new-car dealer captives and all the major floorplan providers.
Given that UVA sells reconditioned vehicles, your flooring dollar goes further than it would in the physical auction lanes (pre-recon). Just let us know if you have any questions.
If a vehicle enters arbitration:
There is a $350 mechanical arbitration deductible (first $350 of any mechanical repairs are paid by the buyer).
The maximum amounts awarded for arbitration claims are:
UVA will notify the buyer and seller of the final outcome by email. If an adjustment has been made, a new sales disposition will be sent.
Arbitration will not last longer than 48 hours unless agreed upon by both parties. By participating in a UVA event—either as a buyer or seller—all parties agree that UVA is the final arbiter and its decisions are considered final and binding.
