Rules for Listing a Vehicle

To promote a safe, fair and enjoyable trading experience, Buy-Used-Cars has established a set of rules and policies for vehicle listings. These restrictions involve how certain vehicles are described, and practices that would provide an unfair advantage or result in a negative buyer experience.

Breaches of these policies may result in a range of actions, including:

  • Listing cancellation
  • Limits on account privileges
  • Account suspension

When policy breaches occur, Buy-Used-Cars emails the seller that a listing has been ended.
The following are the Rules for Listing with links to the specific policy pages that have examples, any exceptions, and a link that you can use to report a breach of that policy.
