The word dealer vehicles is often used in various situation around the car trade. Nevertheless, a clear definition can and must be created for dealer vehicles to prevent confusion. 

The prerequisite for being able to call a vehicle a dealer vehicle is that this vehicle was sold by one dealer to another. But why is this important? 

There are separate rules for trading in dealer vehicles. The most important difference here is that dealer vehicles may not have a warranty. When selling to the end consumer, the warranty cannot be excluded, so it is important to make a distinction here. When buying dealer vehicles digitally, you must therefore pay close attention to the description of the vehicle and should even insist on a condition report. At CarOnSale, we offer a reliable and transparent source of information on the condition of the dealer vehicle with our COSCheck.

  • Dealer vehicles are not sold directly to end customers but first to car dealers
  • Trade from dealer to dealer is also called B2B
  • You can sell a car without warranty if buyer and seller act on the same level. So, for example, a dealer to dealer sale
