Helpful Hints

We want your experience with UVA to be as successful as possible. Here are some tips that will help:

  1. Consign your vehicles with a reserve price that makes sense today. Your cost may not be the market price.
  2. You are responsible for the accurate representation of your vehicles.
  3. Have quality pictures of your vehicles.
  4. Submit your booksheets as early as possible and no later than 6 p.m. the day prior to the sale. Early submittals allow us to advertise the upcoming consignment and attract more buyers.
  5. Have sold vehicles ready for immediate delivery.
  6. Once a vehicle is sold at our event, it’s sold. A sale fee will be assessed for vehicles sold and not available for pickup.

Rules and Policies

ADESA UVA issues a sales disposition for each vehicle sold. Copies are emailed to both the buyer and seller.

Transportation

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.

Delivered Vehicles

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.

Dealer Financing

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.

Arbitration

If a vehicle enters arbitration:

  1. An adjustment may be made to the final sales price.
  2. The vehicle is inspected by an employee or authorized representative of UVA, if needed.
  3. The sale may be rescinded and the seller will be responsible for all transportation costs.

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.
