|Beepi is licensed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles as a used car dealer. As explained more fully below, once a buyer has agreed to purchase a particular vehicle offered for sale on this website, Beepi purchases that vehicle from the seller (if Beepi does not otherwise own the vehicle). Thereafter, Beepi delivers the vehicle, title and, within California, registration, to the buyer. At the time of delivery, (i) Beepi gives all required disclosures and notifications to the buyer, (ii) Beepi and the buyer mutually execute all required purchase and sale documents, and (iii) buyer pays Beepi for the vehicle.We may use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you or compensate you through a payment account linked to your Beepi account. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. By choosing to consummate a transaction with Beepi, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge or credit your chosen payment provider.
A. Selling a Vehicle on this Website.
With certain exceptions addressed at Section 4(B) below, the vehicles listed for sale on this website are advertised and offered for sale by private sellers, and not by Beepi. To list a vehicle for sale on the Beepi website, the seller must have possession of the vehicle to be sold, and (i) the ability to transfer title, or (ii) if there is a lien on the vehicle, must have advised Beepi of the lien and must have provided Beepi with the information Beepi would need to satisfy the lien. Seller acknowledges that if he or she provides Beepi with any false, incomplete, or inaccurate information, including but not limited to vehicle or personal information, any agreement entered into between seller and Beepi for the purchase of a vehicle by Beepi is null and void and of no force of effect and seller will be responsible to compensate Beepi for any costs, losses or damages resulting from any false, incomplete, or inaccurate information.
In order to list a vehicle for sales on this website, the website will ask you, as a prospective seller, to provide basic information regarding the vehicle, including make, model, year, style and mileage. You will then be asked to schedule an inspection with a Beepi inspector, and to fill in certain identifying information, including your name and the home or office address at which the vehicle will be inspected. During the registration process, Beepi will provide you, as a prospective seller, with the the price Beepi will pay you for the vehicle if a buyer agrees to buy it (the “Guaranteed Price”).
Once you have filled in the required information and scheduled an inspection, Beepi will send one of its inspectors to your home or office to photograph the vehicle inside and out, and to conduct a pre-purchase inspection, including a test drive of the vehicle. The inspector will also verify the vehicle’s make, model, year, style and mileage, and title and registration, and confirm that the seller is the owner of the vehicle. The inspection will be conducted by the Beepi inspector in accordance with Beepi’s multipart pre-purchase vehicle inspection process.
Upon completing the inspection, if Beepi chooses to allow you to advertise and offer your vehicle for sale on Beepi.com, Beepi will, within two (2) business days, email you the Guaranteed Price. Prices are fixed and not subject to negotiation, and are based on a variety of factors, including the market value of the vehicle at the time of inspection as assessed by a third-party appraisal. Beepi will provide a prospective seller with a trade in value for the vehicle that takes into account the results of Beepi’s inspection. Beepi is paid a commission in the event a vehicle is sold. The sale price advertised on Beepi.com is the Guaranteed Price plus Beepi’s comission in the event the car is sold. Beepi’s commission is determined on a car-by-car basis, and takes into consideration the value of the car at the time of inspection. Beepi’s commission is not negotiable.
Once the vehicle passes inspection, if the private seller decides to advertise and offer his or her vehicle for sale on the website, the vehicle will be advertised and offered for sale on the website by the private seller at the Guaranteed Price plus Beepi’s commission. In offering a vehicle for sale on this website, the seller (i) represents that he or she has physical possession of the vehicle to be sold and either (a) that he or she has the ability to transfer title, or (b) that he or she has fully disclosed any lien on the vehicle to Beepi, and has provided Beepi with sufficient information to enable Beepi to satisfy the lien, and (ii) agrees that, unless or until seller advises Beepi that the vehicle has been sold, or to cancel his or her listing on the website, the vehicle is available for sale and, as long as the seller is paid the Guaranteed Price, seller will consummate the sale transaction. The seller is free to continue to use the vehicle unless or until a buyer agrees to purchase the vehicle and a sale to that buyer is consummated. The seller may also continue to list the vehicle for sale through other outlets, but it is the seller’s responsibility to inform Beepi immediately if the vehicle is sold. It is also the seller’s responsibility, to inform Beepi of any times during which the vehicle will be unavailable for pickup. For example, the seller must notify Beepi if he or she is going on vacation and will be unavailable to transfer title and possession while away.
Beepi may revise the Guaranteed Price in the event of any post-inspection damage. In such a situation, Beepi may – but is not required to – make the seller a new offer on different terms. It is the seller’s responsibility to inform Beepi immediately if any damage occurs to the vehicle after the inspection by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Should the seller fail to timely inform Beepi of such post-listing damage, Beepi may, at its sole discretion, remove the listing for the vehicle from this website. The seller also agrees to reimburse Beepi for any costs, losses, or damages suffered as a result, including but not limited to the cost of repair and the cost of any necessary inspection or re-inspection. The nature and extent of any post-incident damage will be determined solely by Beepi, or a third-party working on Beepi’s behalf.
If a buyer agrees to purchase a vehicle advertised and offered for sale on the website, Beepi will, as soon as reasonably practicable, (1) secure the vehicle title from the seller, (2) secure all necessary signatures from the seller to accomplish transfer of title, (3) pay the seller for the vehicle by way of a check issued by Beepi, and (4) pick up the vehicle from the seller. Beepi may remove the seller’s listing from this website if Beepi cannot secure from the seller the title, the vehicle, or the necessary signatures. Assuming the car has not suffered any post-inspection damage, the price paid by Beepi to the seller will be the Guaranteed Price. Should the buyer return the vehicle to Beepi for any reason, Beepi will retain title and possession of the vehicle and the seller shall retain the price paid to seller. To the extent such a returned vehicle is offered for sale on this website, it will be offered by sale by Beepi. Beepi may also offer for sale on this website vehicles on its premises.
Beepi cannot guarantee that any vehicle listed on the website will be sold. Nor can Beepi guarantee the length of time it will take for any car to sell. Beepi may, in its sole discretion, remove a listing from this website if the car is not sold within thirty (30) days . Alternatively, Beepi may make a new offer to the seller at a revised price point. Beepi agrees to purchase any vehicle that is not sold within thirty (30) days of it is initial posting on the website, at a price determined in Beepi’s sole discretion.
B. Buying a Vehicle on this Website.
Following registration for access and use of the Services, a prospective buyer is free to browse the website. For each vehicle offered for sale, the website displays professional photographs and certain characteristics of the vehicle. The photographs displayed are not exemplars, but photos of the actual vehicle offered for sale.
Each of the vehicles offered for sale on this website is certified by Beepi pursuant to its multistep pre-purchase certification process. For each vehicle offered for sale, the website displays a completed inspection report reciting the steps conducted in the certification process, including each of the components inspected, and the status of the vehicle with respect to each step and component.
With respect to any vehicle Beepi sells, Beepi will have complied with all requirements of the California Vehicle Code with respect to (1) checking and making operational certain vehicle parts, (2) odometer disclosure, and (3) smog inspection. Beepi will also make all disclosures required under California and federal law, including under the Federal Buyer’s Guide and California Vehicle Code section 9990. Beepi will publish on this website any third party report it has secured with respect to an individual vehicle. Beepi disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy of any such report.
The sale price at which the seller offers a vehicle for sale on this website is fixed and not subject to negotiation. The prices on the website include title and registration for California residents, the cost of delivery within a 100 mile radius of Palo Alto, California, California smog and document fees and Beepi’s commission. Prices on the website do not include sales or usage tax, delivery outside of a 100 mile radius of Palo Alto, California, non-California title and registration fees, financing charges or extra purchases, including but not limited to an extended warranty.
At the time a vehicle (along with title and, within California, registration) is delivered to the buyer for consummation of a sale, the buyer and Beepi will mutually execute a Retail Installment Contract memorializing the terms of the sale. A buyer can pay for the vehicle by check, credit card, or bank transfer. Payment is due at the time of executing the Retail Installment Contract, and the buyer’s account will be charged immediately. All vehicles delivered to a buyer will be free and clear of any liens previously attached to the vehicle. At the time of delivery, Beepi will give all required notifications and disclosures.
While Beepi expects to be able to offer delivery within several days of most purchases, there are certain circumstances outside of Beepi’s control that may delay delivery. For example, if the seller is out of town, Beepi may be unable to obtain the vehicle until the seller returns. Accordingly, Beepi cannot offer a guaranteed delivery timeframe at the time of purchase.
Each vehicle sold by Beepi comes with a 10-day money back guaranty. This means that, as long as (i) the vehicle has not been driven more than a total of 1,000 miles or 100 miles for each day the vehicle was in buyer’s possession, whichever is less (the “Mileage Limit”), and (ii) the vehicle is in the same condition it was in at the time of delivery (collectively the “Money Back Guaranty Conditions”), a buyer can, within 10 days of delivery, return the vehicle to Beepi and receive a full refund. As long as the Money Back Guaranty Conditions are satisfied, the buyer may return the vehicle for any reason. Beepi does not offer partial refunds and will not renegotiate the purchase price if the buyer is not satisfied with the vehicle. In the event the buyer is not satisfied with the vehicle for any reason, the buyer may, as long as the Money Back Guaranty Conditions are satisfied, return the vehicle within ten days of purchase and, subject to excess mileage charges described below, receive a full refund.
To the extent the vehicle has been driven beyond the Mileage Limit, the refund given to the buyer will be reduced by $3.00 (three dollars) per mile. To the extent the vehicle has been damaged or is otherwise in worse condition than it was at the time of delivery, Beepi, in its sole discretion, may refuse to refund any portion of the purchase price, or may choose to reduce the refunded amount by the amount required to return the vehicle to its condition at the time of delivery to buyer. The amount of the deduction will be determined by Beepi in its sole discretion, and Beepi will provide an accounting to the buyer reflecting the amount of any deductions and the reason for each deduction. In the event Beepi refunds the purchase price to a buyer, Beepi, as the owner of that vehicle, may itself offer the vehicle for sale on this website.
All Beepi vehicles come with the 10-day money back guaranty described above.
