We charge a deposit or hold fee of a minimum of $500. This may be paid via PayPal, credit-card or check. US Dollars only. This hold will be return once the vehicle is paid for in full. If the customer decides not to move forward $100 of the hold will be retained for remarketing cost.

When seeking pre-approval for an auto loan please remember that some lenders only work with franchise dealers. Autos of Palm Beach is licensed as an Independent Dealer. Most banks and credit unions do not finance vehicles older than 7 years or with more than 100,000 miles.
A third-party inspection is highly recommended to avoid any misunderstandings. We have made an earnest effort to accurately and fairly describe this vehicle to you. We aim to only carry quality pre-owned vehicles, however, please know that any and all pre-owned vehicles will have typical scratches, nicks, or dings inherent for its year, and mechanical parts are subject to fail. Some vehicles have required paintwork (i.e. bumpers, mirrors, etc) to improve quality. All such work that we may have done is by professionals and of high quality.
If you would like to arrange an inspection, please contact us BEFORE a purchase commitment and we will do our best to coordinate with you to make the vehicle available for your arranged inspection. You would be responsible for payment of the inspection.
Returns are allowed in the event the vehicle is shipped and you are dissatisfied. However, a 10% (of purchase price) restocking fee applies. The return must take place within 7 days from receipt and the vehicle must have under 250 miles difference upon return. Return shipping fees are the obligation of the buyer.
The customer is responsible for all shipping charges. We are happy to assist in arranging shipping as a value-added service only. We assume no responsibility for damages incurred after the shipper has signed for the vehicle. We are NOT the shipping company and shipping companies are independent of our dealership. We subscribe to a central service which allows us to make your shipment available for several thousand shippers. If the route matches theirs, they call us and request the load. We check their feedback as recorded on the central service and verify their cargo insurance as well as make inquiry as to their estimated pickup and delivery time. Delays happen and are often uncontrollable and some shippers prove to be more communicative than others. For the most part, though, it is a relatively smooth process and we assist you throughout the process.
If you choose to arrange your own shipping, note that for sales tax purposes we require a copy of the Bill of Lading when the vehicle is picked up and a copy of the signed delivery receipt when you have received the vehicle out of Florida. Please, we prefer that you do not select DAS as your service provider as we have not had positive experiences with that company.
Vehicles offered for sale by Autos of Palm Beach are pre-owned. When these units are purchased from the dealer-only auctions as trade-ins or lease turn-ins they may not have some “accessories” which you may feel should be included. Such items include things like books/manuals, extra keys, remotes, headphones (for entertainment packages), tools, cargo nets, floor mats, CD cartridges, wheel lock keys, etc. Items as these (or others you may think of) are not automatically included or provided by us. In our written descriptions, we do our best to list things accurately. HOWEVER, we do make mistakes and may overlook an item listed as included which did not come with the car. In such a case, please refer to the photos of the vehicle to see if you can see the items listed. For example, we usually take a photo showing any books and keys or remotes that come with the vehicle. If you don’t see a photo of it, please ask us to check to see if it is included with the vehicle. Please do not assume anything and know that we do not mind you asking us to double-check. We want you to be happy with your purchase.
We make every effort to present information that is accurate. However, it is based on data provided by the vehicle VIN decoding and/or other sources including but not limited to car history data reports and therefore exact configuration, color, specifications, accessories should be used as a guide only and are not guaranteed. Under no circumstances will we be liable for any inaccuracies, claims or losses of any nature. Furthermore, inventory is subject to prior sale and prices are subject to change without notice. Prices do not include taxes, title and registration fees, finance and/or documentation charges, and shipping fees when applicable. To ensure your complete satisfaction, please verify accuracy prior to purchase.
Dealer Prep Fee
Autos of Palm Beach charges a Dealer Prep Fee in the amount of $349.00 on all vehicle purchase transactions. It must be stated that “This charge represents costs and profit to the dealer for items such as inspecting, cleaning and adjusting vehicles, and preparing documents related to the sale.” Florida law statutes mandate that any such fee must be disclosed and included in the final sale price without discrimination. With online auctions the final sale price is not known in advance, so please note that the amount of $349.00 will be added to the closing or agreed amount of purchase so that the final price will include the fee and such will be reflected on the Bill of Sale, also called a Purchase Agreement or Buyer’s Order. A BIN (Buy-It-Now) price on eBay does include the $349.00 charge.
Autos of Palm Beach is licensed in the State of Florida and is responsible for collecting applicable sales taxes related to vehicle sales.
Sales Tax for Florida Residents: 6% for the state plus any applicable county discretionary tax.
Out-of-state (non-Florida resident) shipping your vehicle to your state: We retain a Bill of Lading as evidence of your shipping and do NOT collect sales tax. You will be responsible for paying your taxes, title and registration fees when you register the vehicle in your home state.
Out-of-state (non-Florida resident) taking delivery in Florida: If you take delivery of your vehicle here in Florida and we issue you a temporary tag, and your state has a Reciprocal Agreement with Florida, we are required to collect your state’s applicable Sales Tax up to a maximum of the Florida rate of 6%. You will be required to pay any taxes over that amount when you register the vehicle in your state. If your rate is less than 6% then we are required to collect the lower rate. In most cases (see Arkansas and Mississippi below) you will not be double-taxed. We will provide you a notarized document as to the amounts collected which you may present to your motor vehicle department as evidence of sales tax already paid. Any balance of tax due and related title and registration fees are the buyer’s responsibility.
Arkansas and Mississippi currently do not allow credit for taxes paid in Florida. To avoid paying tax to both Florida and Arkansas or Mississippi we recommend that you have your vehicle delivery to you by a transporter. We will retain the shipping Bill of Lading as evidence of the out-of-state delivery.
Exporting: If you are purchasing a vehicle which will be exported overseas we can only release the vehicle to you via a transporter / shipper as the vehicle may not be operated on Florida roads with a temporary tag unless sales tax has been collected. We request a copy of the export bill of lading or dock receipt for our records and state audit purposes so that we are not held responsible for taxes.
Vehicles sold from our dealership are being sold “AS-IS”. No representations or warranties are made. A Manufacturer Warranty for the vehicle may still apply. Car history reports sometimes convey beginning or ending periods of manufacturer warranties. The best way to confirm this information is to call a manufacturer’s franchise dealer (ask for the service department) and inquire as to the warranty details. You will need to provide them with the VIN when you call.
An extended warranty may be available for the vehicle. Please contact us for details.
The jurisdiction of this transaction is Palm Beach County, Florida. By bidding on or making an agreement to purchase this vehicle you will have entered into a legal and binding contract.
