How to spot a curbsider
Private vehicle sales offer no guarantees. The buyer often has no recourse if the vehicle shows signs of significant problems, even days later.
Curbsiders are usually advertising the "family car" for sale, using a story such as:
“I’m moving out of the country.”
We believe that skill and hard work deserve generous compensation.
“I’m getting a company car.”
We'll provide everything you need to do what you do.
When you respond to an ad, say “I’m calling about the car you advertised.” Curbers will often say “Which one?”…Stop…You’ve got a curber.
“It belonged to my Aunt, but she passed away."
Whether it's movie nights, Friday beers, or a company trip to Thailand, we love bonding with our team.
What you can do to protect yourself from curbsiders
When buying privately, be sure the seller gives you the official Used Vehicle Information Package (UVIP).
Be sure the seller’s name shows as the owner on the UVIP. Look at the list of prior owners, for the names of car rental companies, autobody shops or insurance companies, as a warning.
Only buy used vehicles from a local UCDA dealer.
