Who are we?
Jeremy and Jennifer Smith started Autos of Palm Beach after returning from three years of volunteer work in South America. They both enjoyed the Internet and automobiles so in 2002 they started helping people invest in cars via eBay. They worried that honest people would have a hard time in the used car business, but thanks to the feedback system on eBay, honesty is rewarded.
In 2008, Johan Spalding joined Autos of Palm Beach, helping the company grow. Now as the owner, he and his wife, Christine, along with a friendly and knowledgeable support staff, continue to assist people in finding quality used vehicles. They maintain the company’s stellar reputation for world-class customer service. In the last ten years the company has been happily involved with thousands of different individuals. Autos of Palm Beach is a small operation and handles only the nicest cars.

Financing as Method of Payment
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.Make sure, then, if financing, that your financial institution accepts the year and miles of the vehicle before bidding. Again, please arrange financing before bidding.If you ‘win’ an auction you herein agree to subject yourselves to these terms and, therefore, if you cannot arrange financing your deposit will be held by Autos of Palm Beach to help cover costs involved in the auction/ad. (Under some circumstances, with prior agreement, the deposit may be applied towards a future purchase of a vehicle from Autos of Palm Beach.)
We reserve the right to cancel all bids and end an auction early at any time should the vehicle no longer be available for sale.Winning bidder must contact us within 24 hours of auction end and make arrangements for payment and delivery at that time. Terms of Deposit and Payment of Balance Due outlined herein apply.If we have not received contact within 24 hours of auction end we reserve the right to further advertise the vehicle, sell it to the next high bidder, or sell it otherwise.This vehicle is also being offered for sale outside of eBay and should a sale agreement be made we reserve the right to withdraw or end the auction in accord with eBay rules and regulations.For example, No Reserve auctions may not be ended during the last 12 hours except to end it during that time and sell to the high bidder.
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 auction end or before a purchase commitment and we will do our best to coordinate with you to make the vehicle available for your arranged inspection.Buyer / bidder is responsible for payment of the inspection.
If upon personal and/or authorized professional inspection of the purchased vehicle at our facility, buyer finds a substantial discrepancy between the published report and actual vehicle, we will correct the problem at no charge, work out a compromise, or refund all monies paid.Buyer will not be responsible for any eBay related fees and will be dismissed from any contractual obligation with eBay to purchase the vehicle. This is if the inspection proves vastly different from published ad.
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.
Buyer is responsible for all shipping charges.We are happy to assist in arranging shipping as a value added service only. Call Johan at 561-371-3114 for a current quote/estimate from our location to yours.We assume no responsibility for damages incurred after the shipper has signed for the vehicle.We are NOT the shipping company.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 & 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 will do our best to walk you thru 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 anda 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 don’t mind you asking us to double-check some things.
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.
Also, due to human imperfection, and/or occasional software glitches, if you see a vehicle advertised, for example, for $200.00, please understand we are not selling a car for such a price and a correction will be made. A click of the wrong button can mean the difference between a starting price and a selling price. If you see such an amazing ‘deal’ please contact us right away to verify as it is likely an error and we will not be able to honor it.Sorry, we are only human! J
