AUTOMOBILE INTERNET SALES IN FLORIDA - SELLING NEW AND USED CARS TO OUT-OF STATE BUYERS

BUYING AND SELLING CARS IN FLORIDA

MIAMI, Florida - Buying a car online? Competing with the thousands of private parties in Florida selling cars and trucks on eBay, Autotrader and Cars.com, one can also find ads touting new and used cars from Miami to Fort Lauderdale to West Palm Beach being offered for sale by automobile dealerships. Internet sales can account for as much as 50% of a dealers business so potential customers are treated as valuable commodities. General managers have to be on top of their games in order to succeed in this lucrative but competitive market. One of the incentives they have started implementing is offering to pay for condition reports to be performed by licensed independent appraisers.

In Florida, an appraiser must have an insurance adjusters license from The Department of Financial Services. Florida Statutes 626.855 defines a “RESIDENT INDEPENDENT ADJUSTER” as any person who is self-employed or is associated with or employed by an independent adjusting firm or other independent adjuster, and who undertakes on behalf of an insurer to ascertain and determine to amount of the claim, loss, or damage payable under an insurance contract or undertakes to effect settlement of such claim, loss or damage. Misrepresentation and other indiscretions can result in loss of licensure so dealers recommending licensed independent appraisers can assure their customers that they are impartial. Most times the appraiser's stamp of approval results in a completed sale while occasionally his report could prove to be a deal killer. That's what inspires confidence in buyers and is what ultimately helps to sell cars.
