Changes to the Terms of Service. We may revise and update these Terms of Service from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of revised Terms of Service means that You accept and agree to the changes.
Eligible Participants. Carmigo provides an online marketplace connecting individuals and commercial sellers (a “Seller”) to automobile dealers across the country.. Only representatives of licensed dealerships are eligible to purchase vehicles through the Website (a “Buyer”). By using the Website, You represent and warrant that You are eligible to sell or purchase vehicles pursuant to these conditions.
Carmigo’s Role. Carmigo provides services to facilitate the exchange of vehicles between Sellers and Buyers. We do not take title to the vehicles listed for sale on the Website. We are neither the buyer nor the seller of the vehicles listed for sale. As a commercial party, Buyer should research the condition and value of the vehicle and the terms of sale before bidding on a vehicle. We are not a party to the vehicle sale contract, but we are a third party beneficiary of the contract and are entitled to the parties’ performance and to seek legal remedies for the parties’ breach. You agree that any legal claims arising out of a transaction for the sale of a vehicle will be between You and the other party (either Buyer or Seller of the vehicle) to the transaction and not against Carmigo.
Seller Obligations. Each Seller accessing and using the Website represents, warrants and agrees to the following terms:
- Any amounts owed to Carmigo by Seller may be deducted from any proceeds due to Seller.
- Carmigo may stop payment or refuse to authorize payment to Seller pursuant to a right of offset.
- Risk of loss for a vehicle remains with Seller as long as the vehicle is at Seller’s premises. Once the vehicle is removed from Seller’s premises, the risk of loss for the vehicle is transferred to Buyer.
- Seller is responsible for providing an accurate odometer mileage statement pertaining to the vehicle.
- Seller is the true and lawful owner of the vehicle except as set forth in the vehicle’s announcements.
- The vehicle is free from all liens and encumbrances except as set forth in the vehicle’s announcements.
- Seller has full rights, power and authority to sell and transfer title to Buyer except as set forth in the vehicle’s announcements.
- A $350.00 cancellation fee will be assessed to Seller if a transaction is cancelled or abandoned after a bid for the vehicle either meets the reserve or is otherwise accepted.
- Seller shall abide by and comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, including but not limited to all rules and regulations set forth by the applicable department of motor vehicles.
Buyer Obligations. Each Buyer accessing and using the Website represents, warrants and agrees to the following terms:
- Buyer’s bid is valid through the next business day until 2:00pm CST
- Buyer will purchase the vehicle for the Buyer’s accepted bid price.
- Buyer will select a payment option by 11:59 PM the same day the bid for the vehicle is accepted or the sale may be considered null and void at Carmigo’s discretion; in such event Buyer may be subject to financial penalty and/or suspension of Buyer’s account access.
- No stop payment order of Buyer’s payment to Carmigo shall be honored.
- Any stop payment order shall be deemed by the parties to be evidence of fraud existing at the time the transaction was consummated and shall be construed by the parties as an intent to defraud in order to consummate the transaction.
- Carmigo may deposit any payment immediately, regardless of whether Buyer has possession of the vehicle’s certificate title.
- Title to the vehicle will not pass to Buyer until complete payment has been received by Carmigo and the title has been received from Seller.
- Buyer is solvent.
- The vehicle is purchased solely for resale in the form of tangible personal property in Buyer’s regular course of business and is the sort usually purchased by Buyer for resale.
- If Buyer is planning to export a vehicle, Buyer is responsible for ensuring satisfaction of all export requirements and all import requirements of the destination country.
- Buyer holds a retail sales tax registration, certificate, license, or other permit, issued by the sales taxing authority of Seller’s state, county, and country as appropriate.
- Carmigo reserves the right to limit the number of vehicles purchased by Buyer at any time.
- Failure to remit payment within two (2) business days will result in a fee equal to the total buy fee.
- Buyer is subject to account suspension at the discretion of Carmigo.
- Buyer will not attempt to manipulate bids, intentionally bid up the price of any vehicle or otherwise fraudulently bid on any vehicle.
- Buyer shall abide by and comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, including but not limited to all rules and regulations set forth by the applicable department of motor vehicles.
Transport. Buyer and Seller agree that Carmigo will coordinate the transportation of the vehicle from Seller to Buyer via a third-party selected by Carmigo, and neither Buyer nor Seller shall do so directly. Buyer agrees that delivery of the vehicle, including the risk of loss to Buyer, will occur at the time the vehicle is loaded on to the transport and removed from Seller’s premises (i.e., FOB shipping point). During such transit, the vehicle will be insured at no cost to Buyer, and Buyer will be the beneficiary of any claims for damage to the vehicle or losses occurring while the vehicle is in transit.
If Buyer takes delivery of the vehicle in a state in which Carmigo is not licensed to sell the vehicle, the vehicle may be delivered to or shipped from a state in which Carmigo likewise does not have a license to sell the vehicle. In such case, Buyer agrees that the sale is transacted, and legal title to the vehicle transfers, in the State of Mississippi, at the later of the time that (i) Buyer makes the final payment to Carmigo in Mississippi or (ii) Carmigo approves the purchase from a sales or delivery location in Mississippi (if applicable).
Payment Terms. You agree to pay Carmigo any and all fees and charges assessed by Carmigo for access and use of the services provided through the Website. Fees are subject to change without notice. All fees are non-refundable. The purchase price of the vehicle, service charges, transportation charges, and all applicable taxes and fees payable by Buyer in connection with the purchase of a vehicle through the Website is the “Total Payment Amount.”
Buyer shall pay Carmigo the Total Payment Amount once the vehicle is picked up from the Seller (the “Payment Due Date”). Payment shall be made in U.S. dollars by ACH electronic funds transfer, check, floor plan, or by another financing arrangement acceptable to Carmigo. If payment is not received by the Payment Due Date, the amount owing will be automatically debited using the default payment method selected by Buyer. Carmigo reserves the right to specify the type of payment method it will accept from Buyer in our sole and absolute discretion. In addition to whatever rights of set-off Carmigo may have, if Buyer fails to pay fees or other amounts owing when due to Carmigo, Carmigo will be entitled to immediately set off the amount owed by Buyer from any funds due from Carmigo to Buyer. In addition, if Buyer fails to pay the Total Payment Amount by the Payment Due Date, we may: (a) electronically debit your bank account or floor plan account in accordance with the default payment method selected by You or another account made available to Carmigo; (b) withhold title documents until all amounts owed have been paid; (c) cancel the sale transaction; (d) charge interest on any past due amounts at the rate of one and one half (1.5%) percent per month, calculated in U.S. dollars, or the maximum rate allowed by law, whichever is less; and/or (e) pursue any other remedy or relief permitted by law. If Carmigo accepts payment from Buyer by electronic check, Buyer authorizes Carmigo to initiate debit entries to its account at the financial institution on which the electronic check was written. The electronic check debit authorization will remain in force until we have received written notice from Buyer of its termination. Carmigo reserves the right to decline payment by electronic check at any time and for any reason. Any payment that is withdrawn by Buyer or its bank, rejected or returned for non-sufficient funds (“NSF”) must be settled and replaced immediately. NSF transactions will be subject to a service charge up to the maximum amount allowed by law and shall be immediately due and payable.
Carmigo will pay Seller the purchase price of the vehicle less any fees due from Seller to Carmigo after receipt of a clear, transferable title from Seller.
You agree to pay all costs including, without limitation, attorney fees, court costs and other expenses reasonably incurred by Carmigo to collect any monies owed by You.
