1. Use of Fast Car Bids Inc.

Fast Car Bids is a service offered to you to buy or sell (as a buyer or a seller) a car/your car. If you are looking to sell your car, you do not want to post it on a regular list-and-wait platform where most people just waste time, you can list it here. Through an auction format you will only have interested eyes on your vehicle throughout all of Canada. If you may not want to sell your car out of province, don’t be discouraged because it is up to the buyer to take care of any fees regarding potential delivery and anything else that may arise once the auction ends and there is a buyer. Fast Car Bids may have your car sold in just 7 days, and if it does not sell, there are things we will do to have it sold very shortly (see “How it all Works” for more info).

As a buyer, Fast Car Bids is perfect for enthusiasts as many cool enthusiast vehicles from all over Canada may be for sale on Fast Car Bids in a fun simple to use online auction format. For buyers who are just looking for a regular used car (new to you), Fast Car Bids allows everyday driver cars as well.

Fast Car Bids is only a service, connecting buyers and sellers from all over Canada. We list a vehicle from the seller and connect it to a buyer through the site, once the auction ends, both parties will be given each other’s contact information and you must take care of the final transaction which is the payment and delivery (if needed). Once the auction is over, Fast Car Bids is not responsible for anything.

2. Code of Conduct and Responsibility

For a bidder/buyer, you are responsible to decide on the car you are bidding on because all bids are final, no refunds will be given for any situation. We are not responsible for anything regarding the car for sale, this is between the buyer and seller. Fast Car Bids only connects the two parties.

Fast Car Bids is not responsible for any information given by the seller or buyer of their car or themselves. We cannot make sure of any information given by a seller or buyer. A seller using our service must complete the auction once it goes live and must complete the transaction once the auction ends. The seller agrees to sell the car at the price the auction ended with. A bidder agrees to the terms of bidding on a vehicle and the buyer fee plus taxes of their bid being potentially taken if they win the auction. The buyer agrees to purchase the car if they are the winning bidder and go through with the whole transaction. The buyer also agrees they are responsible for all the governmental fees regarding registration and others. We do not control the actions of any buyer or seller, we are not responsible for any actions as we are just a service provider and have zero affiliation with any buyer or seller.

Fast Car Bids does not directly have any cars for sale offered by us. We do not take on any responsibility or liability of a seller’s car.
