Why should I use Buy An Exotic?
We’re not a dealer, but more than just private party. You get the best of both worlds - upfront information to help your search while shopping from the comfort of your own home.
As more buyers shift towards online car shopping, Buy An Exotic gives you confidence with transparent and detailed listings, high quality photos, and comparison pricing.
We have dedicated staff supporting both buyers and sellers. From loading the first listing to loading the car onto the trailer, we help manage the experience from beginning to end.
Both buyers and sellers are vetted to prevent scammers from using our platform.
What cars do you accept?
We realize "exotic" can be somewhat subjective. We particularly like limited production, harder-to-find vehicles, including but not limited to:
Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Lotus, Aston Martin, and specific Porsche, BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Acura, and Land Rover models.
However, we don't want to limit or define the term "exotic" to our own interpretation.
Please submit your vehicle and we can work together to see if it's a fit!
What happens after I buy a car?
After you’ve decided to move forward with a purchase, we will work with both you and the owner to coordinate the entire transaction.
You will need to pay a non-refundable $1,000 as a deposit to hold the vehicle. This applies towards the total purchase of the car. The hold is good for 3 full business days from when the deposit is received, expiring at 11:59PM PST on the last day.
You will be paying the remaining balance to the owner directly. Those three days are the perfect time to get your funds ready. You can pay with a cashier's check or wire transfer. For BTC or other payment methods, please contact us directly to coordinate.
Once funds are received by the seller, they will overnight the signed title and any other relevant paperwork to you. If you've elected to ship the vehicle, we will coordinate with the seller to get your new exotic to you as quickly as possible.
We recommend getting auto insurance once you have sent the funds.
We have shipping providers we can recommend, or you may use your own. We recommend an enclosed trailer to protect your purchase, although it costs more. Road debris and oil may damage your vehicle on an open carrier during shipment.
Once you receive the title, you will need to take it to your local DMV to officially transfer ownership into your name. After that, you're ready to enjoy your new exotic.
By using our service, you are acknowledging that you are buying the vehicle directly from a private party (the owner). Although we do our best to make the listings as accurate as possible, we cannot be held responsible for any misrepresentations, errors, or typos found in the listings. We recommend for you to do your diligence as a buyer to verify the information provided is correct.
What if I want to get a loan for the car?
Buy An Exotic is not a dealer, so we do not offer direct lending.
You will need to find your own lender that can issue loans for private party transactions. Most local credit unions and banks can do this.
Each lender has their own requirements to fund a loan; we will coordinate with you and the seller to make sure all required steps are taken. We are happy to recommend a lender to you.
We suggest you get a pre-approval before placing a deposit, as some lending institutions may take longer than 3 days to complete the loan.
What fees do you charge?
Sellers: It is free to advertise with us and a select few platforms. For $299, we will market your vehicle on multiple platforms and find a professional photographer in your area to shoot high-quality photos of your car.
We charge a fixed rate of 5%, contingent on a successful sale. If it does not sell, you don’t pay anything.
You choose the price your vehicle is listed. However, once a price is advertised, we cannot adjust it to a higher amount.
Your sale is guaranteed. If you elected for the Professional Photographer Plus package, you will receive a full refund if your car is not sold in 120 days.
Please contact us if you have unique advertising requirements for your car.
Buyers: None. You pay for the price of the vehicle, plus shipping (if applicable).
