BHPH car dealers must now post the book value on each vehicle offered for sale

BHPH Dealer Requirements

The new legislation requires BHPH dealers, on every vehicle sold or leased, to:

Restrict the use of global positioning satellite (GPS) and starter interrupt devices,
unless the buyer has been advised. As with all consumer advisory requirements, the
department recommends the advisory statement be in writing and the buyer’s
signature is obtained on such written document.

Affix and prominently display a label on any used vehicle offered for retail sale that
states the reasonable market value of the vehicle. The label must meet all of the
following conditions:

—Printed with a heading in at least 16-point bold type that reads

“REASONABLE MARKET VALUE OF THIS VEHICLE”

with text at least 12-point type.

—Located adjacent to the Used Car Buyer’s Guide located prominently and
conspicuously on the vehicle so that it is readily readable.

—Identify all equipment included with the vehicle.

—Contain the information used to determine the reasonable market value of the
vehicle, including, but not limited to, the use of a nationally recognized pricing
guide for used vehicles.

—Contain the date the reasonable market value was determined.

—Indicate that the reasonable market value is being provided only for comparison
shopping and is not the retail sales price or the advertised price of the vehicle.

where can i file my car dealer complaint ???

Problems with a vehicle purchase can DMV help me

Filing a Complaint with the Department of Motor Vehicles

You should know that DMV has limited resources to review and catalog these complaints.

Your information will be reviewed by Investigations and Audits and/or Licensing Operations.

Not all complaints are investigated.

Use the (Record of Complaint Form (INV 172A)

to register a complaint regarding a new or used vehicle dealer, a broker, dismantler,

registration service, vehicle verifier, driving school or traffic violator school.

Only written complaints, submitted on this form, are accepted.

DMV investigators conduct selective investigations of these licensees and their activities,

based upon the department’s priorities, patterns of misconduct and the availability of personnel.

Your complaint will be kept on file in case an investigation is undertaken against this party or firm.

If this occurs, you may be contacted.

You should know that, even if DMV conducts an investigation, this can only result in criminal or administrative action against the licensee,

and may not result in any monetary judgment or award to you or other victims.

Your only recourse to recover a financial loss, or to seek another remedy,

is to consider filing a civil claim against the licensee.

car dealer bond agent convicted of fraud

Former agent who pocketed insurance premiums pleads guilty to fraud

News: 2014 Press Release

For Release: October 7, 2014
Media Calls Only: 916-492-3566
Former agent who pocketed insurance premiums pleads guilty to fraud

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Thomas Henry Morris, 72, pleaded guilty to one felony count of insurance fraud after he collected premiums and failed to pay over $133,000 in premiums to an insurer. Morris was sentenced to three years felony probation and 40 hours of community service. As part of his plea agreement, Morris paid $133,000 in restitution and will pay an additional $10,000 to the insurance company involved.

“This sentencing is a victory for consumers and insurers,” said Commissioner Dave Jones. “It was because of the combined efforts of the Department of Insurance and the Contra Costa County District Attorney that we were able to bring an end to the scheming and thieving of this individual and find justice for the aggrieved insurance company.”

Morris, who owns Morris & Associates Insurance Services Inc., carried out his scheme with a producer license that expired in 1994. He exposed auto dealerships to hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential liability by selling surety bonds, collecting the premium and pocketing the funds that belonged to the insurer.

The investigation began in September 2013 and revealed Morris was directly involved in conducting unlicensed insurance transactions. The criminal complaint was issued June 24, 2014 and Morris surrendered to the court the following day.

###
The California Department of Insurance, established in 1868, is the largest consumer protection agency in California, regulating the $123 billion insurance marketplace. In 2013 the California Department of Insurance received more than 170,000 calls from consumers and helped recover over $63 million in claims and premiums. Please visit the Department of Insurance web site at www.insurance.ca.gov. Non-media inquiries should be directed to the Consumer Hotline at 800.927.HELP or 213.897.8921.

car dealers…..beware of the kleenex

KIRKLAND, WA,  — For decades, one company has dominated the vehicle history market: CARFAX. With few alternatives available for vehicle history reports, CARFAX gets away with charging as much as $34.99 for a single vehicle history report.

“I just needed to prove that a car I was selling had a clean history, so I scoured the web for a ‘free vehicle history report'”, explains David Wu, “Unfortunately, there was no such thing as free vehicle history, and I felt ripped off when I resorted to paying $30 for a basic report.” After this experience, Wu went on to found VinAudit.com– a vehicle history reporting service offering a radically lower-cost alternative to CARFAX.

Since VinAudit.com’s initial release in early 2012, the service has served thousands of consumers over the Internet in addition to having with a rapidly growing presence in the automotive industry. VinAudit.com and partners of VinAudit.com served as one of the main alternatives to CARFAX providing an approved compliance solution with this new requirement that took effect on July 1st, 2012.

Assembly Bill 1215 required California car dealers to properly disclose vehicle history information before their customers purchase a car. Seeking a low-cost compliance solution, over 500 used car dealers in California have chosen VinAudit.com as their exclusive source for vehicle history reports.

“We’re just getting started,” Wu says optimistically, “One day, vehicle history may even become free.”

VinAudit.com is an approved provider and partner of NMVTIS, a US federal database wherein state DMVs, insurance carriers, junk and salvage sites with other record providers are mandated to report to. The company provides instant Vehicle History Reports that is sent to your email, can be downloaded as PDF file and can be printed. Moreover, they also offer Dealers Program and Resellers Program to the Automotive Industry with great benefits and simple set up. VinAudit.com’s mission is to make Vehicle History for free!

@truecar responds to unfair business practices lawsuit

+++

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — TrueCar, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRUE) has always been committed to improving the car-buying experience for all participants, including consumers, dealers and manufacturers.

We are aware that a lawsuit was filed on behalf of the California New Car Dealers Association (“CNCDA”), a trade association that seeks a declaration from the Los Angeles Superior Court as to whether TrueCar qualifies as a dealer or autobroker under Californialaw. To be clear, the complaint does not affirmatively seek any monetary relief from TrueCar, our network of Certified Dealer partners, or anyone else.

TrueCar is confident it can demonstrate the compliance of our business model with California law. We fail to understand how the CNCDA believes that it is serving the interests of its members by seeking a declaration that approximately half of those members are violating California law through their relationships with TrueCar.

It is telling that the lawsuit was filed by a trade association and not by any actual California dealers, consumers, or governmental agency charged with the responsibility for enforcing the very laws that are at issue in the lawsuit. We believe the reason is simple: TrueCar operates in compliance with California law.

TrueCar has invested a tremendous amount of resources to ensure its compliance with all applicable laws, including specifically the laws at issue in this litigation. TrueCar has always proactively maintained an open dialogue with the regulators charged with the oversight of these laws in order to answer any questions regulators may have regarding TrueCar’s operations and the compliance of those operations with applicable law. These regulators understand our business model and have taken no enforcement action against us since we began operating in California in 2005.

The California Legislative Counsel Bureau has previously considered whether a web-based service that operates in the same manner as TrueCar constitutes an autobroker under California law. Contrary to the allegations in the CNCDA’s complaint, the Legislative Counsel Bureau concluded that the operation of such a service “does not constitute autobrokering” and the operator of the service “is not a dealer” within the meaning of applicable law.

As recently as October 2014, TrueCar met with representatives of the California Department of Motor Vehicles, which is the regulatory body charged with enforcement of the statutes at-issue in the CNCDA’s complaint. After analyzing TrueCar’s business operations in depth, including specifically those challenged by this lawsuit, the DMV did not request that TrueCar make any changes to its California business operations.

In short, we are proud of the service that we deliver to our users, participating dealers, affinity partners, and manufacturers. If this lawsuit is allowed to proceed we welcome the opportunity to address the issues raised and we expect to be fully vindicated.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements regarding the successful resolution of litigation to which TrueCar is subject. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements. Refer to the Risk Factors sections of TrueCar’s annual report on Form 10-K for 2014 and subsequent quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a discussion of the factors that could cause results to differ materially. All forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to management as of the date hereof. TrueCar disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

Summary

Beepi is a service that primarily facilitates sales between private sellers and buyers. As a buyer, Beepi offers you many services and protections, which are described further throughout this Agreement. For example, all vehicles offered for sale to buyers have undergone Beepi’s multipart pre-purchase vehicle inspection and meet the safety, registration, and smog requirements imposed by California upon delivery. Subject to certain restrictions, all Beepi vehicles come with a 10-day money back guaranty so that you can return a vehicle for any reason and receive a full refund.Beepi offers many services to sellers as well. In particular, Beepi will professionally inspect and photograph your vehicle before it is listed. Once a buyer agrees to purchase your vehicle, Beepi will pick up the vehicle, pay you, and handle delivery to the buyer. You will retain that price even if a buyer returns the vehicle to Beepi for any reason.

These features are offered subject to certain restrictions, which are described further throughout this Agreement. Moreover, your use of Beepi’s Services imposes certain obligations on you, which are described further below. Beepi strongly encourages you to read this Agreement in its entirety.

Buying and Selling Vehicles.

Beepi is licensed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles as a used car dealer. As explained more fully below, once a buyer has agreed to purchase a particular vehicle offered for sale on this website, Beepi purchases that vehicle from the seller (if Beepi does not otherwise own the vehicle). Thereafter, Beepi delivers the vehicle, title and, within California, registration, to the buyer. At the time of delivery, (i) Beepi gives all required disclosures and notifications to the buyer, (ii) Beepi and the buyer mutually execute all required purchase and sale documents, and (iii) buyer pays Beepi for the vehicle.We may use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you or compensate you through a payment account linked to your Beepi account. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. By choosing to consummate a transaction with Beepi, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge or credit your chosen payment provider.

A. Selling a Vehicle on this Website.

With certain exceptions addressed at Section 4(B) below, the vehicles listed for sale on this website are advertised and offered for sale by private sellers, and not by Beepi. To list a vehicle for sale on the Beepi website, the seller must have possession of the vehicle to be sold, and (i) the ability to transfer title, or (ii) if there is a lien on the vehicle, must have advised Beepi of the lien and must have provided Beepi with the information Beepi would need to satisfy the lien. Seller acknowledges that if he or she provides Beepi with any false, incomplete, or inaccurate information, including but not limited to vehicle or personal information, any agreement entered into between seller and Beepi for the purchase of a vehicle by Beepi is null and void and of no force of effect and seller will be responsible to compensate Beepi for any costs, losses or damages resulting from any false, incomplete, or inaccurate information.

In order to list a vehicle for sales on this website, the website will ask you, as a prospective seller, to provide basic information regarding the vehicle, including make, model, year, style and mileage. You will then be asked to schedule an inspection with a Beepi inspector, and to fill in certain identifying information, including your name and the home or office address at which the vehicle will be inspected. During the registration process, Beepi will provide you, as a prospective seller, with the the price Beepi will pay you for the vehicle if a buyer agrees to buy it (the “Guaranteed Price”).

Once you have filled in the required information and scheduled an inspection, Beepi will send one of its inspectors to your home or office to photograph the vehicle inside and out, and to conduct a pre-purchase inspection, including a test drive of the vehicle. The inspector will also verify the vehicle’s make, model, year, style and mileage, and title and registration, and confirm that the seller is the owner of the vehicle. The inspection will be conducted by the Beepi inspector in accordance with Beepi’s multipart pre-purchase vehicle inspection process.

Upon completing the inspection, if Beepi chooses to allow you to advertise and offer your vehicle for sale on Beepi.com, Beepi will, within two (2) business days, email you the Guaranteed Price. Prices are fixed and not subject to negotiation, and are based on a variety of factors, including the market value of the vehicle at the time of inspection as assessed by a third-party appraisal. Beepi will provide a prospective seller with a trade in value for the vehicle that takes into account the results of Beepi’s inspection. Beepi is paid a commission in the event a vehicle is sold. The sale price advertised on Beepi.com is the Guaranteed Price plus Beepi’s comission in the event the car is sold. Beepi’s commission is determined on a car-by-car basis, and takes into consideration the value of the car at the time of inspection. Beepi’s commission is not negotiable.

Once the vehicle passes inspection, if the private seller decides to advertise and offer his or her vehicle for sale on the website, the vehicle will be advertised and offered for sale on the website by the private seller at the Guaranteed Price plus Beepi’s commission. In offering a vehicle for sale on this website, the seller (i) represents that he or she has physical possession of the vehicle to be sold and either (a) that he or she has the ability to transfer title, or (b) that he or she has fully disclosed any lien on the vehicle to Beepi, and has provided Beepi with sufficient information to enable Beepi to satisfy the lien, and (ii) agrees that, unless or until seller advises Beepi that the vehicle has been sold, or to cancel his or her listing on the website, the vehicle is available for sale and, as long as the seller is paid the Guaranteed Price, seller will consummate the sale transaction. The seller is free to continue to use the vehicle unless or until a buyer agrees to purchase the vehicle and a sale to that buyer is consummated. The seller may also continue to list the vehicle for sale through other outlets, but it is the seller’s responsibility to inform Beepi immediately if the vehicle is sold. It is also the seller’s responsibility, to inform Beepi of any times during which the vehicle will be unavailable for pickup. For example, the seller must notify Beepi if he or she is going on vacation and will be unavailable to transfer title and possession while away.

Beepi may revise the Guaranteed Price in the event of any post-inspection damage. In such a situation, Beepi may – but is not required to – make the seller a new offer on different terms. It is the seller’s responsibility to inform Beepi immediately if any damage occurs to the vehicle after the inspection by contacting help@beepi.com. Should the seller fail to timely inform Beepi of such post-listing damage, Beepi may, at its sole discretion, remove the listing for the vehicle from this website. The seller also agrees to reimburse Beepi for any costs, losses, or damages suffered as a result, including but not limited to the cost of repair and the cost of any necessary inspection or re-inspection. The nature and extent of any post-incident damage will be determined solely by Beepi, or a third-party working on Beepi’s behalf.

If a buyer agrees to purchase a vehicle advertised and offered for sale on the website, Beepi will, as soon as reasonably practicable, (1) secure the vehicle title from the seller, (2) secure all necessary signatures from the seller to accomplish transfer of title, (3) pay the seller for the vehicle by way of a check issued by Beepi, and (4) pick up the vehicle from the seller. Beepi may remove the seller’s listing from this website if Beepi cannot secure from the seller the title, the vehicle, or the necessary signatures. Assuming the car has not suffered any post-inspection damage, the price paid by Beepi to the seller will be the Guaranteed Price. Should the buyer return the vehicle to Beepi for any reason, Beepi will retain title and possession of the vehicle and the seller shall retain the price paid to seller. To the extent such a returned vehicle is offered for sale on this website, it will be offered by sale by Beepi. Beepi may also offer for sale on this website vehicles on its premises.

Beepi cannot guarantee that any vehicle listed on the website will be sold. Nor can Beepi guarantee the length of time it will take for any car to sell. Beepi may, in its sole discretion, remove a listing from this website if the car is not sold within thirty (30) days . Alternatively, Beepi may make a new offer to the seller at a revised price point. Beepi agrees to purchase any vehicle that is not sold within thirty (30) days of it is initial posting on the website, at a price determined in Beepi’s sole discretion.

B. Buying a Vehicle on this Website.

Following registration for access and use of the Services, a prospective buyer is free to browse the website. For each vehicle offered for sale, the website displays professional photographs and certain characteristics of the vehicle. The photographs displayed are not exemplars, but photos of the actual vehicle offered for sale.

Each of the vehicles offered for sale on this website is certified by Beepi pursuant to its multistep pre-purchase certification process. For each vehicle offered for sale, the website displays a completed inspection report reciting the steps conducted in the certification process, including each of the components inspected, and the status of the vehicle with respect to each step and component.

With respect to any vehicle Beepi sells, Beepi will have complied with all requirements of the California Vehicle Code with respect to (1) checking and making operational certain vehicle parts, (2) odometer disclosure, and (3) smog inspection. Beepi will also make all disclosures required under California and federal law, including under the Federal Buyer’s Guide and California Vehicle Code section 9990. Beepi will publish on this website any third party report it has secured with respect to an individual vehicle. Beepi disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy of any such report.

The sale price at which the seller offers a vehicle for sale on this website is fixed and not subject to negotiation. The prices on the website include title and registration for California residents, the cost of delivery within a 100 mile radius of Palo Alto, California, California smog and document fees and Beepi’s commission. Prices on the website do not include sales or usage tax, delivery outside of a 100 mile radius of Palo Alto, California, non-California title and registration fees, financing charges or extra purchases, including but not limited to an extended warranty.

At the time a vehicle (along with title and, within California, registration) is delivered to the buyer for consummation of a sale, the buyer and Beepi will mutually execute a Retail Installment Contract memorializing the terms of the sale. A buyer can pay for the vehicle by check, credit card, or bank transfer. Payment is due at the time of executing the Retail Installment Contract, and the buyer’s account will be charged immediately. All vehicles delivered to a buyer will be free and clear of any liens previously attached to the vehicle. At the time of delivery, Beepi will give all required notifications and disclosures.

While Beepi expects to be able to offer delivery within several days of most purchases, there are certain circumstances outside of Beepi’s control that may delay delivery. For example, if the seller is out of town, Beepi may be unable to obtain the vehicle until the seller returns. Accordingly, Beepi cannot offer a guaranteed delivery timeframe at the time of purchase.

Each vehicle sold by Beepi comes with a 10-day money back guaranty. This means that, as long as (i) the vehicle has not been driven more than a total of 1,000 miles or 100 miles for each day the vehicle was in buyer’s possession, whichever is less (the “Mileage Limit”), and (ii) the vehicle is in the same condition it was in at the time of delivery (collectively the “Money Back Guaranty Conditions”), a buyer can, within 10 days of delivery, return the vehicle to Beepi and receive a full refund. As long as the Money Back Guaranty Conditions are satisfied, the buyer may return the vehicle for any reason. Beepi does not offer partial refunds and will not renegotiate the purchase price if the buyer is not satisfied with the vehicle. In the event the buyer is not satisfied with the vehicle for any reason, the buyer may, as long as the Money Back Guaranty Conditions are satisfied, return the vehicle within ten days of purchase and, subject to excess mileage charges described below, receive a full refund.

To the extent the vehicle has been driven beyond the Mileage Limit, the refund given to the buyer will be reduced by $3.00 (three dollars) per mile. To the extent the vehicle has been damaged or is otherwise in worse condition than it was at the time of delivery, Beepi, in its sole discretion, may refuse to refund any portion of the purchase price, or may choose to reduce the refunded amount by the amount required to return the vehicle to its condition at the time of delivery to buyer. The amount of the deduction will be determined by Beepi in its sole discretion, and Beepi will provide an accounting to the buyer reflecting the amount of any deductions and the reason for each deduction. In the event Beepi refunds the purchase price to a buyer, Beepi, as the owner of that vehicle, may itself offer the vehicle for sale on this website.

All Beepi vehicles come with the 10-day money back guaranty described above.

Dispute Resolution/Jurisdiction/Agreement to Arbitrate.

A. In General.Certain portions of this section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Beepi agree that we intend that this section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.

B. First — Try to Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes.

If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Services, the content available through the Services, your User Submissions, or this Agreement (collectively, “Dispute”), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if you have failed to provide us with this information or if such information is not current or accurate, then we have no obligation under this section. Your notice to us must be sent to: hello@beepi.com. For a period of 60 days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Beepi and you will engage in a good faith dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute, though nothing will require either you or Beepi to resolve the Dispute on terms with respect to which you and Beepi, in each party’s sole discretion, are not comfortable.

C. Forums for Alternative Dispute Resolution.

If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in above within 60 days of receipt of the notice (or, where no notice address exists for you, after such Dispute arises), then either you or we may submit the Dispute to formal arbitration in accordance with this section.

Upon expiration of the applicable 60-day period and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, a Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If the Dispute has a claimed value of not more than $250,000, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a retired judge or a lawyer with not less than 10 years’ experience as a practicing member of the bar in the substantive practice area related to the Dispute, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. If the Dispute has a claimed value of more than $250,000, or if Beepi elects in its sole discretion to bear the costs of arbitration in excess of those that would occur for a proceeding before a single neutral arbitrator, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a three member panel, with one member to be selected by each party and the third (who will be chair of the panel) selected by the two party appointed members or by the AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator or arbitration panel, as the case may be, will apply applicable law and the provisions of this Agreement, will determine any Dispute according to the applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award.

If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within 60 days of the filing of a “demand for arbitration,” then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) using JAMS’ streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that you and an officer of Beepi consents to in writing. The substantive practice area requirements for the arbitrator and the $250,000 threshold for the number of arbitrators assigned to the Dispute set forth in the paragraph above for the AAA arbitration will also apply to any such arbitration under JAMS or another arbitration service.

You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows:

AAA: 800.778.7879 JAMS: 949.224.1810

D. Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of this Agreement and can award the prevailing party damages and other relief (including attorneys’ fees). However, WITH ARBITRATION (i) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (ii) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION OUTCOME ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (iii) JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in San Mateo, California; but if the applicable arbitration rules or laws require the arbitration to be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration, Beepi shall have the right to elect to proceed to arbitration in such location. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Beepi to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this section to be enforceable, then Beepi will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. Discovery will be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute, and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered in or by any court that has jurisdiction over the parties pursuant to Section 9 of the Federal Arbitration Act.

E. Limited Time to File Claims.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH ABOVE, WHERE FEASIBLE) WITHIN 1 YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES — OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.

F. Injunctive Relief.

The foregoing provisions of this section will not apply to any legal action taken by Beepi to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Services, the content available through the Services, your User Submissions and/or Beepi’s intellectual property rights, Beepi’s operations, and/or Beepi’s products or services.

G. Small Claims Matters Are Excluded from Arbitration Requirement.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring a qualifying claim of Disputes in small claims court.

H. No Class Action Matters.

You and we expressly agree that any Dispute is personal to us, and any such Dispute shall only be resolved by an individual arbitration. Neither party agrees to class arbitration, or an arbitrationwhere a person brings a Dispute as a representative of any other person or persons. Neither you nor we agree that a Dispute can be brought as a class or representative action outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other person or persons. The parties agree that a Dispute may only be resolved through an individual arbitration and shall not be brought as a class arbitration, a class action, or any other representative proceeding.

I. Federal and State Courts.

Except to the extent that arbitration is required above, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute may only be instituted in state court in San Mateo County, California or federal court in San Francisco, California. Accordingly, you and Beepi consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.

J. Applicable Law.

This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with, and any Dispute and Excluded Dispute will be resolved in accordance with, the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

beepi.com is looking for the best dmv licensing consultant money can buy

beepi is a new used car dealer model

and using their wealthy uber backers combined with disruptive technology

they are attempting to change the current used car automotive sales industry

their rogue actions and blatant violation of the basic car dealer rules

have made dmv officials at the highest levels take notice

+++

the biggest problem with disruptive technology

and the used car automotive sales industry

is a nearly 100 year tradition of the government

building strong consumer protections into the law

which beepi and crew, with arrogance has chosen to bypass

+++

here are a few of the basic flaws with the beepi.com model

+++

their los altos location is unlicensed

their santa cruz location is virtually empty and not a working retail location as licensed by the dmv

their consignment agreement does not comply with current california dmv regulations

+++

the glaring omission of a federal buyers guide posted on each vehicle offered for sale

could merit a $16k fine per vehicle sold if so ordered by the DMV or the FTC

this violation alone could derail beepi.com and its disruptive technology model

+++

none of the vehicles advertised on the beepi.com website have buyers guides posted

a buyers guide must be posted on every vehicle offered for sale by licensed dealers

the offering of any used vehicle requires a current smog, safety check and vehicle history report

BEFORE the car is offered for sale

the division 12 safety check must be conducted at arms length from the dealership

by a licensed mechanic, and at last check beepi.com and carsavvy inc do not have a current BAR license

+++

current advertising rules require the posting of a license plate or the last 6 of the VIN on each ad

current advertising rules require the posting of each ad at the dealers licensed location

current advertising rules prohibit the black friday and cyber monday offers made by beepi.com

+++

current dmv rules only allow deliveries by licensed autobrokers of brokered vehicles

beepi.com is the apparent licensed dealer of record

and does not have a current autobroker endorsement on their license

the beepi.com disruptive technology model bypasses the licensed location entirely

and makes delivery to the customer bypassing significant notice postings required in each dealership

+++

beepi.com advertises certified used cars using an

improper certified vehicle designation

as per the car buyer bill of rights enacted in july 2006

+++

as the premier provider of car dealer education in california

we believe it is paramount for a $65M used car dealer startup

to adhere to the same rules and regulations imposed on every other car dealer

+++

giving allowances to the wealth or arrogance of beepi.com

and their disruptive technology model

is a slap in the face

to every law abiding car dealer we have ever taught

and really sets the stage for total chaos for the dmv licensing folks

+++

im sure there will be more to follow on the beepi.com story

what do these red prior history stickers mean ????

Title Brands-Where To Look

A “brand” is wording on a Certificate of Title or registration card that indicates certain conditions in the vehicle’s history. Most states put history brands somewhere on their titles and the wording varies from state to state (for example; Totaled, Reconditioned, Salvaged, Junked, Damaged, Rebuilt, Warranty Returned).

Although California has indicated prior history on titling documents for many years, vehicle history information is more prominently displayed on the latest revision of both the Certificate of Title and Salvage Certificate in a red box near the upper right-hand corner of the document.

Why Brands Are Important to Consumers

Brands indicate what has happened to a vehicle in the past. They can indicate high mileage, significant damage, or chronic problems.

What Conditions Require a Brand?

The following brands are placed on California vehicle titles and DMV records:

Salvaged-Vehicles marked with a “salvaged” brand were involved in an accident or incurred considerable damage from another source, such as a flood or vandalism. This brand includes previously dismantled (junked) vehicles.

Original Taxi or Prior Taxi–Vehicles formerly used “For Hire” which usually have high mileage.

Original Police or Prior Police-Vehicles formerly used by law enforcement and which usually have high mileage.

Non-USA-Vehicles manufactured for use and sale outside the United States which have been converted to meet Federal and California safety and emissions standards.

Warranty Return or Lemon Law Buyback-Vehicles which have been returned to the manufacturer under California’s Lemon Law.

Remanufactured-Vehicles constructed by a licensed remanufacturer and consisting of used or reconditioned parts. These vehicles may be sold under a distinctive trade name.

Salvage Vehicles
Of all the vehicle brands, Salvaged has received the most attention in the past few years.

The California Department of Consumer Affairs found that more than 700,000 structurally damaged and 150,000 salvaged vehicles are returned to streets and highways every year without a safety inspection, and pose a potential hazard to all of the state’s motorists.

A Salvage Vehicle is a vehicle that has been wrecked or damaged to such an extent that it is considered too expensive to repair. The title, license plates, and a required fee are submitted to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and a Salvage Certificate is issued for the vehicle.

A Revived Salvage is a salvage vehicle which has been repaired and reregistered with the DMV.

Be Cautious When Buying a Revived Salvage Vehicle
Although many salvage vehicles are expertly repaired, some vehicles:

Are not properly repaired and/or tested and may be dangerous to operate.
Have been repaired with stolen parts. If the California Highway Patrol or DMV determines the vehicle or its parts have been stolen, the vehicle cannot be registered and the vehicle or parts will be seized.
How To Identify a Salvaged Vehicle
First, look at the title. The title will tell you:

If the vehicle is salvaged.
The mileage when the vehicle was last sold.
Who the owner of record is.
Sellers, including dealerships, are legally required to disclose the vehicle’s salvage title and history, but the law is difficult to enforce, especially when cars come in from another state. Be sure the seller is indeed the owner. If the seller isn’t the owner or an authorized agent for the owner, he or she is not entitled to sell the vehicle, and you are not entitled to buy it. If the seller’s name is not on the title, there must be documentation, such as a bill of sale, dealer report of sale, or power of attorney, authorizing that person to sell the vehicle.

Next, inspect the vehicle itself. Some of the following “clues” may indicate the vehicle has an undisclosed salvage history.

Signs of major repairs on the inner fender structures.
Mud, mold, or rust under the carpet in the trunk.
Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) plate attached with materials other than rivets.
Safety restraint light is always on.
Airbag covers are resealed or improperly installed.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) labels which usually appear on doors, inside hood, tailgate, or hatchback are missing.
You might also want to check various aspects of the vehicle’s history by using the following links. By clicking on any of these links, you are acknowledging and agreeing (1) to not hold the State of California, Department of Motor Vehicles, liable for any reason relating to the condition, identification, or status of a vehicle, including, but not limited to, whether the information is inaccurate, (2) the State of California, Department of Motor Vehicles, does not endorse or make any representations with respect to any vehicle, and (3) the State of California, Department of Motor Vehicles, does not have a duty or ability to ascertain any facts from these links at the time application is made for initial registration or transfer of ownership of a vehicle.

Bond Requirement Specifics

Under California Vehicle Code 11710 (CVC 11710) all applicants for a dealer or remanufacturer license are required to procure and file a bond with the Department of Motor Vehicles. The bond must be executed by an admitted surety, as approved to by the Attorney General. The dealer bond must be in the amount of $50,000, unless the dealer deals exclusively in motorcycles or all-terrain vehicles and wholesale dealers who sell fewer than 25 cars per year (CVC 11710.1) The liability of the bond must remain at full value at all times.

Export scammers’ gain is dealers’ pain

Feds seek headway against black-market rings

“This is a first of its kind prosecution, and I hope it will not be the last. These rings are far reaching,” said John Kacavas, the U.S. attorney for New Hampshire.
Automotive News
July 1, 2013 – 12:01 am ET

First it was a $70,000 Mercedes-Benz GL350. Then another one, followed by a BMW X6 and a Porsche Cayenne. All were paid for in cash.

Jane Goss, the town clerk and tax collector in tiny Sanbornton, N.H., realized something was fishy after a local man started coming into her office every few weeks to register high-end SUVs.

“I knew that he didn’t have the means to pay for these cars fully,” said Goss, who also noticed that the man never drove any of the vehicles to her office. “I don’t know of anybody in Sanbornton who can do that. By the fifth one, I said, ‘No, I can’t register this car.'”

Federal authorities say the man unwittingly had become part of a scheme that illegally exported thousands of luxury vehicles to China. In what has become a burgeoning black-market industry, exporters typically hire straw buyers in the United States and send vehicles overseas by claiming them as used on customs declarations. The buyers often never see the vehicles they claim to be purchasing for personal use.

High prices and heavy demand for luxury cars and SUVs in China, caused in part by 25 percent tariffs on imported new vehicles, mean scammers can often sell the vehicles for at least double what they would get in the United States. A new BMW X6 costs more than 1 million yuan in China, or about $171,500, compared with a U.S. starting price of $60,725; the Porsche Cayenne has a base price of 922,000 yuan, or about $148,750, in China, and $50,575 at U.S. dealerships.

Even after factoring in considerable shipping costs and other expenses, the exporters can make a huge profit on each vehicle by undercutting legitimate dealerships in China.

The schemes can cause big financial problems for U.S. dealerships, which are contractually prohibited from selling new vehicles to anyone who intends to export them and can be penalized by the automakers for doing so — even if they do so unwittingly.

Dealerships that sell to exporters may be forced to pay charge-backs, have incentives revoked and receive fewer vehicles from the factory in the future. Widespread fraudulent registrations also hurt dealerships that do not sell to exporters because such registrations understate the dealerships’ actual market shares, making it appear they are falling short of sales targets. That can affect bonuses paid by automakers as well as future allocations.

First prosecution

New Hampshire has been at the center of several large export schemes because it is the only state with neither a sales tax nor a requirement that vehicle owners carry insurance. Exporters maximize their profits by having vehicles titled there, even though many of the vehicles are bought elsewhere and never enter the state.

John Kacavas, the U.S. attorney for New Hampshire, recently announced that two California men pleaded guilty to federal mail fraud charges and violations of U.S. customs laws, in what officials say was the first successful prosecution of a major vehicle-exporting operation. The defendants admitted to scheming to export 93 vehicles worth more than $5.5 million that they and others bought in 16 states.

Authorities seized 14 of the vehicles at California’s Port of Long Beach and began forfeiture proceedings. The men, Frank Ku, 31, and Danny Hsu, 33, were fined $5,000 and sentenced to three years probation in May.

“This is a first of its kind prosecution, and I hope it will not be the last,” Kacavas told Automotive News, while declining to discuss investigations into any other operations. “These rings are far reaching. Some are operating on a scale much grander than Ku and Hsu.”

In the case, Kacavas said his office was more focused on trying to recover as many vehicles as possible and deterring additional exporting than sending Ku and Hsu to prison.

Court documents say Ku and Hsu found straw buyers by looking on Craigslist for ads posted by people who appeared to need money. Those buyers, who received “a few hundred dollars” for each vehicle they purchased, were not charged.

“Some of them were sort of hapless victims as far as we were concerned and not worthy of federal prosecution,” Kacavas said. “They made very little money from doing this.”

But for the exporters, he said, “it’s very lucrative.”

Ku and Hsu, who ran a company called CFLA, paid New Hampshire residents to use their addresses so they and other employees could falsely obtain local driver’s licenses. Court documents show they made some of the purchases themselves, in addition to using straw buyers, and in some cases they had an employee fly from California to pose as a straw buyer’s fiancee and handle all of the payment and paperwork.

Export scam

How the vehicle exporting scheme run by Frank Ku and Danny Hsu from October 2009 through March 2012 worked
• Ku and Hsu used Craigslist to find straw buyers and people who would let them use local addresses to obtain fake driver’s licenses.
• They or the straw buyers purchased high-end vehicles with checks from a local bank account. Straw buyers would earn several hundred dollars for each transaction.
• They applied for titles in New Hampshire, New Jersey and other states, claiming that each vehicle was for personal use and posing as the straw buyers when the Department of Motor Vehicles questioned the applications.
• Vehicles were shipped to the Port of Long Beach in California.
• After their titles were issued and forwarded to California, the vehicles were shipped overseas with export declarations that categorized them as used.
• When the vehicles got to China, Ku and Hsu delivered the vehicles to buyers who had ordered them in advance, often for more than double the U.S. price.
• They successfully exported 79 vehicles, and 14 more were seized in Long Beach. The average value of each vehicle was about $53,000.

Troopers issued warning

Goss, the clerk in Sanbornton, a town of about 3,000 people in the center of the state, said she had attended a class in which state troopers warned clerks to be on the lookout for suspicious registrations of high-end vehicles. The man she confronted started showing up about a year later, in late 2010.

When questioned by the town’s police chief, Stephen Hankard, the buyer readily acknowledged buying the SUVs for someone else and seemed unaware that he might be part of an illegitimate operation.

“He answered a Craigslist ad, and I think he honestly believed that what he was doing was legal,” Hankard said. “He seemed pretty confident in what he was saying.”

After alerting Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in March 2011, Hankard said, “police chiefs from all over the place started calling me” because their clerks had noticed unusual vehicle purchases as well.

The Sanbornton buyer has not been charged with a crime. Information he gave customs agents helped lead Kacavas in May to charge a Chinese national, Hong Chen, who runs several businesses based in Maryland and Virginia, with mail fraud and misuse of export declarations.

Chen and his businesses are accused of illegally exporting nearly 3,000 vehicles worth more than $157 million — an average of about $53,000 each — from February 2008 through March 2013. About 40 vehicles being prepared for export were seized at the Port of Newark in New Jersey in April, documents show.

Chen was arrested in May, and a judge recently agreed to delay his trial until later this summer to allow for negotiations between prosecutors and his lawyer, who did not return a call seeking comment.

Dealerships harmed

Detective Sgt. Andrew Player of the New Hampshire State Police said his agency has become more active in rooting out illegal vehicle exports, and legislators have discussed ways to make such crimes harder to pull off.

“It’s been going on for a while,” Player said. “We began to receive complaints from the automotive dealers themselves. They were concerned about what was going on and getting charge-backs.”

U.S. Customs regulations only allow new vehicles to be exported by their manufacturer, and still consider vehicles to be new if bought for resale purposes.

According to a deposition by the customs agent who investigated the Chen case, Mercedes-Benz USA has a policy allowing the company to impose the following penalties if it discovers that a vehicle was exported less than a year after being sold as new: “an administrative expense equal to 8.5 percent” of the suggested retail price, “any market support funds or special program discounts paid by MBUSA for that vehicle will be charged back” and “the dealership will lose one like-model unit on the next decade allocation.”

Paul Holloway, whose Holloway Automotive Group has two Mercedes-Benz stores and other dealerships in New Hampshire, said at an April news conference with Kacavas that his company had sustained losses “in the six figures” as a result of export schemes. “This is just a fraction of what’s going on,” Holloway’s partner, David Cushman, told the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper.

Court documents in the Chen case say a 2010 Mercedes GL350 BlueTEC was bought in October 2010 from Holloway Motor Cars of Manchester and shipped to China about a month later. They show that only one of the four SUVs and crossovers registered in Sanbornton was bought in New Hampshire, with the others coming from Mercedes-Benz dealerships near Boston and a Porsche dealership outside Syracuse, N.Y., more than 300 miles away.

The X6 was bought at a BMW dealership — directly across the street from a police station — that officials said also fell victim to Ku and Hsu’s scheme.

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — TrueCar, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRUE) has always been committed to improving the car-buying experience for all participants, including consumers, dealers and manufacturers.

We are aware that a lawsuit was filed on behalf of the California New Car Dealers Association (“CNCDA”), a trade association that seeks a declaration from the Los Angeles Superior Court as to whether TrueCar qualifies as a dealer or autobroker under Californialaw. To be clear, the complaint does not affirmatively seek any monetary relief from TrueCar, our network of Certified Dealer partners, or anyone else.

TrueCar is confident it can demonstrate the compliance of our business model with California law. We fail to understand how the CNCDA believes that it is serving the interests of its members by seeking a declaration that approximately half of those members are violating California law through their relationships with TrueCar.

It is telling that the lawsuit was filed by a trade association and not by any actual California dealers, consumers, or governmental agency charged with the responsibility for enforcing the very laws that are at issue in the lawsuit. We believe the reason is simple: TrueCar operates in compliance with California law.

TrueCar has invested a tremendous amount of resources to ensure its compliance with all applicable laws, including specifically the laws at issue in this litigation. TrueCar has always proactively maintained an open dialogue with the regulators charged with the oversight of these laws in order to answer any questions regulators may have regarding TrueCar’s operations and the compliance of those operations with applicable law. These regulators understand our business model and have taken no enforcement action against us since we began operating in California in 2005.

The California Legislative Counsel Bureau has previously considered whether a web-based service that operates in the same manner as TrueCar constitutes an autobroker under California law. Contrary to the allegations in the CNCDA’s complaint, the Legislative Counsel Bureau concluded that the operation of such a service “does not constitute autobrokering” and the operator of the service “is not a dealer” within the meaning of applicable law.

As recently as October 2014, TrueCar met with representatives of the California Department of Motor Vehicles, which is the regulatory body charged with enforcement of the statutes at-issue in the CNCDA’s complaint. After analyzing TrueCar’s business operations in depth, including specifically those challenged by this lawsuit, the DMV did not request that TrueCar make any changes to its California business operations.

In short, we are proud of the service that we deliver to our users, participating dealers, affinity partners, and manufacturers. If this lawsuit is allowed to proceed we welcome the opportunity to address the issues raised and we expect to be fully vindicated.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements regarding the successful resolution of litigation to which TrueCar is subject. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements. Refer to the Risk Factors sections of TrueCar’s annual report on Form 10-K for 2014 and subsequent quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a discussion of the factors that could cause results to differ materially. All forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to management as of the date hereof. TrueCar disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

does @instamotor have a chance in the crowded field of outlaw used car dealers ??

Instamotor is the closest thing to your car selling itself (update)

Startups have already begun to solve some “real” and “difficult” problems — laundry, selfies, underwear delivery — but a new company is now taking on a new problem: Selling your car.

Bay Area-based Instamotor, which quietly launched eight weeks ago, wants to make selling a car painless and fruitful by taking care of the entire process and leaving sellers with a nice chunk of change at the end.

Oh, and technology is involved too, but we’ll get to that later.

The problem and the solution

The bottom line is that selling one’s car “sucks,” as the company puts it.

The idea for Instamotor sprung out of cofounder Sy Bohy’s awful experience last summer when he needed to see his car. The private-selling route (i.e., Craigslist) was a long and inconvenient process (scheduling car showings, coordinating with various interested buyers, negotiating, and so on). Selling it to a dealership would have left him with much less money in his pocket than desired.

In fact, used car dealerships normally purchase the cars for only 70-80 percent of the price a seller could get in a private sale, according to Bohy.

As a solution, Instamotor takes care of the entire process. It photographs and makes a pricing recommendation for the vehicle, schedules a wash and mechanical inspection, keeps the listing active across multiple marketplaces, vets and schedules test-drives with potential buyers, and even handles the ownership transfer paperwork — all while the seller continues to use their car.

Their cut? Only five percent of the final sale price.

Unlike dealerships and consignment lots, Instamotor has very low overhead costs (no real estate or full-time staff to employ even when there no customers).

“We come sort of in the middle,” said Bohy in an interview with VentureBeat.

And luckily for them, that five percent cut still represents a huge opportunity: 40 million used cars are sold every year in the U.S., roughly a $600 billion market and a $30 billion opportunity at a five-percent commission, according to the company.

The teammates found each other serendipitously. Bohy connected with Val Gui, a former car salesman, on Hacker News after posting some ponderings about the car selling industry, and Gui happened to already be friends with experience iOS developer and entrepreneur Enea Gjoka.

“The average person buys or sells about nine or ten cars in a lifetime,” said Gui. “They don’t know how to do this. Dealers know what they’re doing and can take advantage of that situation.”

Instamotor 2.0

On the tech side of things, Instamotor is mainly building algorithms to model the car prices it suggests to sellers (Bohy’s background is in computer science and back-end software). It gathers data through crawling and indexing websites such as Craigslist and AutoTrader.

“We [also] built a lot of code around listing the cars on multiple places,” said Bohy, “and making sure cars get continued exposure,” though the team assured us they carefully obey the terms of service of the sites they work with.

Inventory management is another aspect they’ve built software in order to operate better.

However, what’s even more interesting and intriguing about Instamotor’s technology is the next phase in their product — which the team firmly declined to share details about.

But it’s not hard to speculate about: We’d guess it will like start using mobile technologies to help it scale its business, largely because it’s already received numerous seller requests from outside the Bay Area.

“Humans don’t scale,” Bohy said. “One of the biggest advantages for [our model] is that people people can still continue to use their vehicles [while we sell them],” he later added during the interview.

Gjoka’s background is in iOS development, so putting two and two together gives us the likely release of a mobile app (easy to scale) that would guide sellers through an easy and templated process to get their vehicle ready and listed through Instamotor’s service.

GPS tracking built into the app or solutions such as those used by Zipcar to track (and even unlock) cars could also easily come into play in the company’s product roadmap.

Car washes, houses, and cars

While the above is all speculation, Instamotor does (and would) fit into several recent trends.

For example, earlier this month, Keith Rabois revealed his new project, HomeRun, which will similarly handle the entire sale process of a person’s house. The only difference is that HomeRun will first purchase the house from the owner before selling it to a buyer. The buying price is determined through a whole lot of data science . But again, it’s using data to price a commodity and take away as much pain (and time spent!) as possible from the seller.

Cherry, the now-defunct car-wash-on-demand service, is another product that has paved the way for and has created a category for Instamotor. Cherry’s app enabled car owners to request and pay for a car wash, which the company would perform wherever the owner’s car was parked at the requested time. Again, it was a service provided at the time and location convenient to the car owner.

In fact, Instamotor’s team admitted having already spoken with Cherry’s former chief executive about the company and how Cherry’s team operated.

And of course, there are the myriad mobile shopping and selling apps, including Poshmark, Vinted, and Etsy, which offer simple steps for sellers to upload pictures of their items and input key information right through the app.

Though make no mistake: Unlike these shopping apps, Instamotor is a service, not a marketplace.

The team revealed that it had already applied to be part of Y Combinator’s accelerator program (Gui was the actually the first employee of MobileWorks, a Summer 2011 participant), though it also said that it’s exploring other possible sources of funding.

  9. How do I change my business name?In order for you to change your business name, you must submit a written request to the Bureau. Submit at least six names for consideration. The first name requested will be approved unless the name could be confused with or is similar to any federal, state, county, or municipal government function or agency or to any law enforcement agency, or in any name which may tend to describe any business function or enterprise not actually engaged in by the applicant/licensee under that name.

    *Until an approval is received, you may not operate under your requested new name.

A correction will take approximately three to four weeks. Please clarify the error in writing and return the license.(This is not for address changes when submitted after a renewal was paid and already mailed)
  12. Can a Repossession Agency use a post office box for an address?Yes. The Repossession Agency must state the location of the business office by street name, number and city. The Repossessor Agency may list a post office box only if mail delivery to the physical location is not possible or if the place of business is located at the licensee’s residential address. In addition, no licensee shall conduct business from any location other than the location for which a license or branch office registration was issued.
  13. How long does it take to process the new license after a request for name change and/or address change or change of branch office has been made?The processing time will vary, typically a name change and/or address change or branch change will take approximately four to six weeks.
  14. There has been a change in the type of ownership/entity after receiving the repossession agency license. What do I have to do?Licenses are not transferable or assigned to new entities. A change of ownership constitutes a new entity. You must submit a new application with appropriate fees. For example: if you apply and become licensed as a sole owner and later decide to form a partnership or corporation, you must apply for a new license.
  15. Who can repossess my car, truck, motorcycle, or other vehicle?The legal owner, and the repossessor agency employee of a repossession agency.
  16. Does the legal owner have to notify me before taking my vehicle?No. The legal owner is not required to notify you before your vehicle is repossessed. However, the legal owner must notify you in writing within 60 days that you have 15 days to arrange to get your car back before it is sold. If the vehicle was repossessed by a licensed repossession agency, the agency must notify you within 48 hours that they have repossessed your vehicle and must furnish you with a list of the personal items in the vehicle at the time it was repossessed.
  17. Can they repossess my vehicle if I have only missed one payment?Yes. The conditions under which the vehicle may be repossessed are subject to the terms of the sales contract signed by you at the time you bought your vehicle. However, some legal owners will work with you to bring your payments up to date, even though they are not required by law to do so. If you expect a problem in making payment, you should contact the legal owner to make other arrangements for payment.
  18. Can they take my car at 4 a.m., or while I am in the grocery store?As long as the repossessor agency employee does not enter any private building or any secured area he or she may take your vehicle at any time from any location. This does not mean that the repossessor agency employee can do anything that is illegal. The repossessor agency employee must obey the same laws that pertain to everyone.
  19. Can a repossessor agency employee agent break my gate, unlock my garage, move other vehicles, or trample my landscape while trying to take my car?No. repossessor agency employees are prohibited from entering any private building or secured area without the consent of the owner or the person in legal possession of the property. This includes any locked and fenced area. Any damage to buildings, fences, landscaping, or other vehicles should be reported to the police. In addition, a complaint should be filed with the Bureau. To get your money back for damaged personal property or real property, you will probably have to go to small claims court or hire an attorney. The Bureau has no jurisdiction to get your money back for damaged personal property.
  20. Should I hide my vehicle or physically protect it from the repossessor agency employee?No. A repossession agency with authorization from the legal owner will attempt to take your vehicle for the legal owner. If you hide the vehicle to avoid repossession, you may give up your right to continue with the same contract with the legal owner.
  21. Can a repossessor agency employee threaten my family or me?No. A repossessor agency employee may not use violence or force in attempting to repossess a vehicle. If violence or force occurs, contact the police immediately. A repossessor agency employee may not use false or misleading statements or make threats in order to take your vehicle.
  22. What happens to my personal belongings in the car after my car has been repossessed?Licensed repossession agencies are required to make a list of all personal belongings found in a vehicle at the time of repossession. They are required to send you at your last known address of record, within 48 hours, a notice containing this list and informing you how to recover your personal belongings and the amount of storage fees owed, if any.
  23. Are my spare tire, tape deck, and mag wheels considered part of my personal belongings?Items such as tape deck or mag wheels, which are installed as a permanent part of the vehicle generally, remain with the vehicle. So do items such as a spare tire or tire iron, which are normal equipment for a vehicle to carry. However, any item such as a removable camper shell, which was not included in the original contract for your vehicle, should be returned to you, although you may be asked to prove that you bought the camper shell separately.
  24. Should I be notified about who took my vehicle and why?A repossession agency is required to provide you with a Notice of Seizure within 48 hours after taking possession of your vehicle. This notice must include the name, address, and telephone number of the legal owner and the name, address, and telephone number of the repossession agency. They should tell you that this Bureau regulates repossessor employees and that the repossession agency is required to give you a personal property inventory within 48 hours of the repossession, and that any damage to a vehicle during repossession is the responsibility of the repossession agency. To find out why your vehicle was repossessed you should contact the legal owner of your vehicle.
  25. What if my car is damaged during or after repossession?The Notice of Seizure, which the repossession agency is required to send you lists that damage to a vehicle during or after repossession, is the responsibility of the repossession agency. Unfortunately, the Bureau cannot actually enforce this responsibility by making the repossession agency pay you for any damage to your car. In case of damage, you should take the repossession agency to small claims or civil court, depending on the estimated cost of repair. You should also file a written complaint with the Bureau, as several complaints of damage against the same repossession agency could result in disciplinary action against that agency.
  26. Can repossession agency employees drive my vehicle or use my personal effects after they have repossessed my car?No. A repossession agency employee may not use any vehicle or personal effects recovered from a consumer for personal benefit. If you believe your vehicle was used during the time the agency had it, you should file a complaint with the Bureau explaining the circumstances which lead you to believe it was used.
  27. What should I do if something is missing from my personal effects when I pick them up?Mention it to the repossession company while you are there and ask them to check their storage area again. Note it on the release form if the items are not located. Follow up with a registered letter to the repossession agency (with a copy to the lien-holder) describing the missing items and ask them to locate them or reimburse you for them. If they don’t comply with your request, send a written complaint to the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services. If some of your belongings are missing you should contact your local police department and begin a small claims court or civil court action to have the repossession agency repay you for your lost possessions.
  28. What about my personalized license plates?Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has advised us that personalized plates should be removed and stored with other personal effects. If you do not claim them within the 60 days, the repossession company should return them to the DMV.
  29. How do I get my vehicle back?The legal owner must give you 15 days written notice before they can sell or otherwise dispose of your vehicle. This notice must be provided within 60 days after repossession. This notice should tell you how to redeem your vehicle and should give you the name and address of the person to contact about payment. Usually, you will be able to reinstate your loan contract by paying your back payments and the repossession fee, unless the legal owner can prove that you did one of the following: A. gave false information on your loan application B. hid the vehicle to keep it from being repossessed C. kept the vehicle in bad repair or damaged it on purpose If the vehicle loan is with your credit union or a finance company, the above information may not apply to you.
  30. What charges, if any, might I have to pay?In addition to paying all or part of the contract balance, you may have to pay a repossession charge. Most vehicle installment loan contracts state that you may be charged for the costs of recovering the vehicle if you default on the loan payments. Therefore, the legal owners may charge you for the amount which they have been billed by the repossession agency. Also, most repossession agencies charge a fee for storage of personal items that were in the vehicle at the time it was repossessed. The amount of the storage fees must be given on the personal property notice prepared by the repossession agency and will be collected at the time you pick up your personal items. Many repossession agencies require that these charges be paid in CASH. If you choose not to make the payments within the 15 days allowed, the legal owner will arrange for your car to be sold. If the buyer does not pay the full contract balance, you may be required to pay the difference, which is referred to as a deficiency.
  31. How are the police involved in repossessions?Immediately after the repossession, the repossessor must notify the local police or sheriff’s department that he has taken your vehicle. As long as the repossessor has the proper identification and can show that the legal owner hired him to repossess your vehicle, the police will probably not interfere with the repossession, even if you call them. However, if you feel that the repossessor has threatened or harmed you or damaged your property, or entered your car or property illegally, you should call the police and file a police report.
  32. How do I file a complaint with the Bureau?A consumer may contact the Department of Consumer Affairs’, Consumer Information Center at 1-(800) 952-5210 and request a complaint form. Please provide copies of all documents relating to your complaint with your completed complaint form.

Car Technology Company Carlypso Brings Concierge and Personal Car Shopper Service to San Diego

Carlypso Expands Hassle-Free Buying and Selling Car Service to San Diego, Saving Car Savvy Consumers Thousands of Dollars

SAN DIEGO, CA–(Marketwired – Mar 23, 2015) – Carlypso, the first technology company to buy and sell used cars hassle-free, announced today it has officially launched its Concierge as well as its Carlypso Deals Personal Car Shopper Service in San Diego, CA.

Carlypso has expanded from its Bay Area headquarters to start servicing customers in recent months in the Los Angeles and Orange County area, Sacramento and now San Diego, offering consumers the opportunity to sell their cars easily and conveniently through Carlypso, and earn an average of between $1500-$2500 more for their car than they would at trade-in. San Diego residents can also now use Carlypso Deals, a new car buying service where Carlypso finds the best deals on inventory before it goes to the dealer.

How it all works

Carlypso Deals:

For consumers interested in buying a car through Carlypso, the company recently launched Carlypso Deals, which is now available in San Diego and surrounding cities. Carlypso buys cars from a trade in or a lease from the trade network it participates in, getting a “first peek” at these cars so it can purchase them for a buyer before the vehicle ever heads to a dealer lot. Consumers go to www.carlypso.com and enter in what they are looking for in terms of model, make and year. They immediately see the inventory of used cars that Carlypso can buy for them, and put in a request for information on available vehicles right at the site.

Within a week, Carlypso can deliver the vehicle directly to the consumer in San Diego.

Traditionally, consumers have gone to dealers to find used cars, and dealers will often mark up these cars $1500-$2500 while waiting for a buyer. Carlypso analyzes thousands of used car transactions on a weekly basis and suggests weekly deals for which the discounts to the dealer prices are highest. By getting early access to the vehicles and not incurring escalated holding costs, Carlypso does not need to mark up prices and can pass the savings on directly to the consumer. Carlypso is the first online car service that is 100% transparent about every step of the process. The consumer knows exactly the condition of each car, exactly what Carlypso paid to acquire the car, and exactly how much money the company is making on each car deal (which is fixed at $500 for cars less than $20,000).

“We are thrilled to extend our car buying and selling services to San Diego,” said Nicholas Hinrichsen, Co-Founder of Carlypso. “We know how painful and expensive the whole process of buying or selling a car can be, and our goal is to eliminate the unnecessary hassle and costs that inevitably happen at a dealership. Carlypso is saving customers thousands of dollars, and is able to provide complete transparency on pricing, car condition and more which is something frankly at this point car buyers should expect.”

Carlypso’s Concierge Car Selling Service:

Carlypso is the easiest means to sell your used car. With Carlypso, sellers just enter their car details on Carlypso’s website, and Carlypso generates a fair market price from analyzing 1.2 million vehicle transactions each week. For all cars — Carlypso can provide an instant cash offer and have the vehicle picked up within 24 hours often for thousands more than competing dealerships might offer. Carlypso’s data accuracy and fair-market appraisal process allows buyers to get the most money for their cars.

About Carlypso
Carlypso is the first technology company to buy and sell used cars hassle-free. Carlypso generates a fair market price for vehicles based on millions of vehicle transactions each month, and coordinates all of the logistics for the seller, including finding the buyers, to get sellers the best price possible on their vehicle. The company has developed a secure proprietary device installed on cars to track vehicles, allowing buyers to do test drives on their own. Carlypso also provides Carlypso Deals, finding the best deals on inventory before it goes to the dealer, and passing that savings onto the consumer. Carlypso, based in San Carlos, CA, has sold hundreds of cars to date for consumers throughout California and is expanding nationwide. For more information visit www.carlypso.com.
