I have been looking for a car on OfferUp from a private sneller rather then a dealer. I find that often cars are re-poster a few days later so It means it is not a New offer. Also I am New to this website and would like to know if you can read feedback from clients so you have a better idea about the person selling the car? Do you have other tips regarding how to purchase a car on offerup?

thanks

@Ang22 When you have narrowed down the search to a few cars, spend a few bucks on a pre-purchase inspection. FYI, the CarFax report contains ONLY details from the DMV/insurance companies and may lack pertinent information that can only be determined with a visual inspection. For insance, some people may decide to settle some auto accidents themselves with paying "out of pocket" with cash, rather than informing the insurance company. This occurs more often than you think within the Metro Los Angeles area, since the insurance companies tend to increase the rates if a driver accumulates too many points on their driving record.

I hate this feature as well. when you are an individual seller, often your car ends up buried by all of the dealer vehicles. They have the cash to "promote" and usually overprice used vehicles on the lot, it's not a truly community oriented site when the community is second to business. Also paying to "promote" or bump, as a private seller still doesn't put your item ahead of corporate ads. Thirdly, i've been on this site two seperate areas after i moved, i have not sold a single item, what gives? the same items sold off craigslist and i've marked them sold here to remove.
I hope the community members are able to become a priority.

What’s funny... is i want the dealers off offer up. They don’t belong on this app. This is for private sellers... to “ offer up” you can’t offer up on a dealer. So tired of not being able to find a private sell on this app. It’s being flooded with dealers and sponsored ads...

@FHJewelry What part of the U.S. do you live in? They shouldn't be flooding your feeds. Let us know.
