Autobroker s Endorsement

An autobroker’s endorsement requires payment of fees as required by subdivision (d) of Section 9262 of the California Vehicle Code.

A dealer may not engage in brokering a retail sales transaction without having an autobroker’s endorsement to their dealer’s license.

Upon issuance of an autobroker’s endorsement to a dealer’s license, the department shall furnish the dealer with an autobroker’s log.  The autobroker’s log remains the property of the department and may be taken at any time for inspection.

The autobroker’s log must contain the following information with respect to each retail sale brokered by that dealer:

  • Vehicle identification number of brokered vehicle
  • Date of brokering agreement
  • Selling dealer’s name, address, and dealer number
  • Name of consumer
  • Brokering dealer’s name, address, and dealer number (CVC Section 11735)

A dealer who brokers a motor vehicle sale shall deposit directly into a trust account any purchase money, including purchase deposits, it receives from a consumer or a consumer’s lender.

  • All trust accounts required by CVC Section 11737 shall be maintained at a branch of a bank, savings and loan association, or credit union regulated by the state or the government of the United States.

vinaudit is the carfax alternative for car dealers

Where can I find the VIN for my vehicle?
You can find your VIN on the vehicle title, the vehicle registration, and the insurance policy. If these papers would not be available, the VIN can also be found inside the vehicle itself. It can be seen on the dashboard on the driver’s side and on the driver’s side door.

When will I receive my vehicle history report?
The vehicle history report is generated and delivered instantly after purchase.

How does my vehicle history report get delivered?
Your vehicle history report gets delivered over the Internet. You’ll be able to print it and save it as a PDF file for your records.

What type of information does a VinAudit provide?
VinAudit provides complete information on its vehicle history report. These include: vehicle specification, title data current and previous state, title issue data, most recent odometer reading (odometer history reading), brand assigned to the vehicle and date it was applied, salvage history, information from companies and auto recyclers and information from junk and salvage yards.

Where does VinAudit’s data come from?
VinAudit’s data comes from the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System. States, insurance carriers, and junk yards are required by law to report vehicle records to the NMVTIS. The NMVTIS has certified VinAudit.com to provide instant access to this data over the Internet.

What kind of vehicles does VinAudit support?
We support automobiles, buses, trucks, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, motor homes and tractors. The vehicle needs to be built after 1981.

Why can’t I have a report from vehicles built before 1981?
From 1954 to 1981, the standards for VIN is not yet accepted. As a result, different manufacturers used different formats. In 1981 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standardized the format. The standardized VIN allows us to maintain and query vehicle data for vehicles since 1981.

How can I store or share my vehicle history report?
You can share VinAudit’s vehicle history report by downloading it as a PDF file. You can also print a copy of this PDF for your records.

Beepi expands to Los Angeles and Launches “Beepi Prime”

Beepi, the leading peer-to-peer marketplace to buy and sell pre-owned cars online, today announced it is expanding services beyond the Bay Area for sellers, and outside of California for buyers.

While Los Angeles residents have been able to purchase cars through Beepi, they will now be able to seamlessly sell their vehicles online as well. In response to high consumer demand, L.A. sellers will be able to easily schedule an appointment to have their cars inspected and Beepi-certified right in their driveways or at their places of business, get professional car photos taken and receive a guaranteed price and sale in 30-days.

In addition to this expansion, the company is launching Beepi Prime, a premium delivery service, in 140 cities in Arizona, Nevada and Oregon. There, buyers can now take advantage of the same customized service Californians have enjoyed since Beepi’s launch in April. Beepi Prime gives buyers an unparalleled personalized shipping experience in which they are updated about the status of their car every step of the way, culminating in the delivery of a fully detailed car in their driveway in five days or less and a personal car tour from a professional Beepi inspector upon arrival. Should any buyers choose to return a car, Beepi provides a 10-day money-back guarantee. In addition to this total refund, all cars are subject to a three-month, 3,000-mile warranty.

Beepi has already made significant strides in reshaping the antiquated process of buying and selling cars by offering direct sales to customers 100% online. The company is currently receiving 1,000 requests a week to sell the cars of residents in the San Francisco Bay Area alone.  This expansion comes hot on the heels of Beepi’s acceptance of bitcoin as a method of payment. Through Beepi’s partnership with BitPay, a buyer can now purchase a Beepi car using bitcoin while the seller still receives cash. The company also offers prospective buyers immediate pre-approval for loans at checkout. With these initiatives, buyers can pay for any car in the Beepi marketplace with a traditional car loan, a bank transfer, cashier’s check, up to six different credit cards at once or bitcoin.

For more information on cities participating in Beepi Prime, please go towww.beepi.com/beepiprime

learn how to read a vehicle identification number ( VIN )

What’s a VIN?
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the 17-character identifier for your car, truck, or motorcycle. It looks like this: 1VXBR12EXCP901213, and encodes the vehicle’s manufacturer, features, and serial number. No two vehicles have the same VIN, so it serves as your car’s fingerprint– this allows for all reports of accidents, title problems, insurance incidents, and more to be tracked through each vehicle’s VIN.

Through VinAudit.com, you can look up records associated with your VIN instantly:

Enter VIN:
What’s this? Example: 1VXBR12EXCP901213

Where can I find my VIN?
You can find your vehicle’s VIN in the title document, the vehicle registration, and on the insurance policy. The VIN could also be located at the following locations on the car itself:

  • On the driver’s side dashboard
    (viewable through the windshield)
  • On the driver’s side door
    (on a sticker in the door jamb)


Why would I order a VIN report?
A VIN report lets you learn about your vehicle’s history. It includes checks for whether the car has been stolen, experienced accidents, recorded as salvaged, as well as many othertitle problem checks. Ordering a VIN report before purchasing a vehicle allows you to catch potential problems and purchase with confidence.

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

car dealers remember and support law enforcement

And the “R” they are worthy of in return

By Alan Barcelona, President, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association

A Message To Our Members, Sworn & Non-Sworn:

Every law enforcement officer who wears a badge has taken an oath to protect and to serve,  even at his or her own peril.  On a daily basis, these fine, brave men and women RESPOND to calls for help and to very dangerous situations. They RESCUE citizens from harmful individuals and  accidents and in doing so, RISK their own safety and their lives.  They are in the face of danger and often have to make split-second decisions to save others and to save themselves.  Not every human is cut out for this stressful but proud profession and not every human is willing to make that kind of sacrifice for the safety of another, most often, a complete stranger.

In the wake of the “use of force” cases that are currently in the national spotlight, the anti-police rhetoric that has  followed, and the December 20th assassinations of New York City Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos – I want to remind the citizens of California and this nation, that no one puts more on the line each and every day than our law enforcement officers, our firefighters and those who serve in our military.

These law enforcement officers have families – they are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, uncles and aunts, nieces and nephews and cousins.  They, like anyone else who goes to work, have a right to return home to their families at the end of their shifts.

Our law enforcement officers feel the anger and hatred from some of those they have taken an oath to protect, and that hurts.  Our law enforcement officers are in the thick of protestors who hurl rocks and bottles at them as the officers work to keep people and property safe, and that is sinful.  For misguided individuals to stand up in front of microphones and cameras denouncing the peace officers in this country is a shame.

Our law enforcement officers would never demand our RESPECT, they don’t have to – they are worthy of it.  My message to the law-abiding citizens in  this state and in the country is this: Don’t let our law enforcement officers stand alone to shoulder the brunt of anti-police rhetoric that is making headlines.  Let your officers know you are there for them just as they are there for you.  A kind word, a letter, a blue light on your porch.  Be the eyes and ears of our law enforcement officers and please watch their backs.

To our law enforcement officers:  Be safe, be true to your oath, take the necessary precautions to ensure you return home to your loved ones and stand tall!  The silent majority will rise to the occasion and thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

new labeling rules for BHPH car dealerships

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.

tesla tennessee fire yields successful results for survivor

November 9, 2013

By Juris Shibayama, MD

TAGS: CUSTOMERS / MODEL S / STORES /
 0 comments

I was driving home from work on the interstate in the right lane at approximately 70 miles per hour, following a truck. In the middle of the lane, there was a rusty three-pronged trailer hitch that was sticking up with the ball up in the air. The truck in front of me cleared the object. I did not have enough time to swerve to avoid the hitch, and it went below my car. I felt a firm “thud” as the hitch struck the bottom of the car, and it felt as though it even lifted the car up in the air. My assistant later found a gouge in the tarmac where the item scraped into the road. Somewhat shaken, I continued to drive.

About 30-45 seconds later, there was a warning on the dashboard display saying, “Car needs service. Car may not restart.” I continued to drive, hoping to get home. About one minute later, the message on the dashboard display read, “Please pull over safely. Car is shutting down.” I was able to fully control the car the entire time and safely pulled off the left shoulder on the side of the road. I got out of the car, and started to get all my belongings out. About 5-10 seconds after getting out of the car, smoke started to come from the front underbody of the car. I walked away from the vehicle to a distance of about 100 yards. More smoke started to come out of the bottom of the car, and about two minutes after I walked away, the front of the car caught on fire.

I am thankful to God that I was totally uninjured in any way from this impact. Had I not been in a Tesla, that object could have punched through the floor and caused me serious harm. From the time of impact of the object until the time the car caught fire was about five minutes. During this time, the car warned me that it was damaged and instructed me to pull over. I never felt as though I was in any imminent danger. While driving after I hit the object until I pulled over, the car performed perfectly, and it was a totally controlled situation. There was never a point at which I was anywhere even close to any flames.

The firemen arrived promptly and applied water to the flames. They were about to pry open the doors, so I pressed my key button and the handles presented and everything worked even though the front of the car was on fire. No flames ever reached the cabin, and nothing inside was damaged. I was even able to get my papers and pens out of the glove compartment.

This experience does not in any way make me think that the Tesla Model S is an unsafe car. I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

Autobroker s Endorsement

An autobroker’s endorsement requires payment of fees as required by subdivision (d) of Section 9262 of the California Vehicle Code.

A dealer may not engage in brokering a retail sales transaction without having an autobroker’s endorsement to their dealer’s license.

Upon issuance of an autobroker’s endorsement to a dealer’s license, the department shall furnish the dealer with an autobroker’s log.  The autobroker’s log remains the property of the department and may be taken at any time for inspection.

The autobroker’s log must contain the following information with respect to each retail sale brokered by that dealer:

  • Vehicle identification number of brokered vehicle
  • Date of brokering agreement

dmv investigations advice from a car dealer attorney

Dealing with a DMV investigator when discussing your DMV Vehicle Dealer or DMV Salesperson’s license is simple:

“Please inform me in writing what documentation you require and I will have a copy faxed or mailed to you in the next 24 hours. In the meantime, I have a business to run that requires my attention. As soon as I have the written request for the documents, I intend to fully comply with your request pursuant to the law. Thank you for your time.”

It’s that simple. The DMV Investigator is still bound by the law against warrantless search and seizures, and other goodies that prevent the harassment most dealers deal with on a daily basis.

Don’t take any crap from a DMV Investigator – let him know you’re running a business. You don’t have to bend to his whim. Stand your ground.

7 helpful tips for red flag rules compliance from zurich insurance

IF YOU OFFER CREDIT…..GET RED FLAG CERTIFIED

WITH

GOTPLATES.COM

800-901-5950

+++++

To help ensure your dealership gets and stays in compliance, Zurich insurance recommends the following seven steps:

1. Put the program in writing

Your program must contain reasonable policies and procedures to address four primary responsibilities under the rule. The rule also states that each program must be documented in writing. While potentially burdensome, this requirement has obvious advantages to the dealer. It forms the basis for the employee training that is required by the rule, and makes responding to government audits and inquiries possible.

2. Make a list of patterns, practices or specific activities that could be red flags signaling possible identity theft.

Your policies and procedures should require that you become at least reasonably certain of your customer’s buyer’s identity. A supplement to the rule on the FTC’s website provides illustrations of 26 possible red flags that fall into the following five categories:

—Receiving alerts, notifications or warnings from a consumer-reporting agency

—The customer presents suspicious documents.

—The customer presents suspicious personal identifying information, such as a suspect address.

—Dealership staff notices unusual use of or suspicious activity within an existing account.

—You receive notices from customers, victims of identity theft, law enforcement authorities or other businesses about possible identity theft in connection with an existing account.

Note, not all 26 possible red flags will be relevant to the way your dealership does business.

In particular, unless you have accounts to which customers can make charges after origination, for example, house credit accounts, the seven possible red flags in category four are not likely to apply to your dealership.

You also need to guard against identity theft risks that result from employee access to account information. Employee access should already be limited as part of your overall information security program.

3. Make a list of methods used to detect and evaluate if a red flag has occurred.

The program should describe procedures used to verify customer information and detect when information is incorrect. Some procedures include:

—Specifying acceptable forms of identifying information required of each finance customer

—Specifying procedures to verify identifying information, for example, using third-party resources to confirm identification or detect fraud

—Using a system to monitor employee compliance relative to their access and use of customer account information

4. Describe how your dealership will respond when red flags are detected.

The program must contain reasonable policies for responding to red flags detected during a transaction. This should include a procedure for escalating unresolved situations to senior management.

Some appropriate responses to unresolved red flags would be to:

—Not continue the transaction

—Use additional resources to verify the customer’s identity.

—Notify law enforcement.

—Determine that no response is warranted.

5. Document all red flag responses and keep them in the customer file.

All red flag responses should also be kept in a dealership file to be used to maintain and update the program.

6. Detail a plan to update the program periodically.

Update the program to reflect changes in risks to customers or to your dealership’s safety and security based upon:

—Your experience with identity theft

—New methods of identity theft

—New methods of identity theft prevention and detection

—Changes in the types of accounts offered or maintained by your dealership

—Changes in your dealership’s business or structure such as mergers and changes in service provider arrangements

7. Follow the Red Flags Rule guidelines in managing the program.

The rule provides for some specific administrative actions that need to take place to adequately manage your program. These include that your program must:

—Be approved and implemented by your dealership’s board of directors or, if no board exists, a designated member of the senior management team.

—Be periodically evaluated to determine if updates are necessary.

—Include training for relevant staff on their obligations under the program.

—Be able to ensure service providers have reasonable procedures to detect, prevent and mitigate the risk of identity theft.

Penalties for Violations

Penalties for violations of these regulations are stiff. These include the following:

—A “knowing” violation of the rule is a violation of the FTC Act, which provides for a $3,500 civil penalty for each violation.

—Enforcement actions by the FTC can carry penalties of up to $11,000 per violation, per day.

—Dealers may also be liable under state unfair and deceptive acts, and practices law, which may include individual and class action claims.

can a wholesale autobroker ever advertise legally ???

yes and no
you may advertise your broker services
but not access to specific vehicles
you could reference vehicles advertised by retail dealers
with whom you have a brokering agreement
we allow that for vehicles placed on retail consignment
our drafted sale program costs 425. per vehicle
with red flag certification
you may show cars consigned to retailers
but you must negotiate and complete the sale
at the retail dealer holding that vehicle in its inventory
hope that makes sense
you have to be very careful
if you are not a licensed retailer yourself
the brokering agreement you hold may enable some advertising
under the retail dealers license

will rogue disruptive technology @beepi survive government scrutiny ??

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

http://mashable.com/2014/11/18/shift/

by Andy Fixmer

+++

Even in the Internet age, selling your car is a hassle. You have research what it’s possibly worth, post pictures and then schedule meetings with strangers for test drives and haggling.

Shift, a Silicon Valley startup that announced Tuesday it raised $23.8 million in funding, wants to change all that.

The company’s app lets users list their cars and sends a so-called “car enthusiast” to their homes to detail the vehicle, take professional photos and estimate its market value.

Once your vehicle is listed, the enthusiast schedules test drives and brings the car to prospective buyers for you. They can even help buyers arrange financing, if needed.

And after a buyer and seller agree to terms, Shift handles all of the transfer paperwork with the DMV.

Shift says its car enthusiasts are paid on customer service, not commission, to incentive them to find the right car at the best price

Shift says its car enthusiasts are paid on customer service, not commission, to incentive them to find the right car at the best price.

Shift’s founding team includes George Arison, who also founded Uber competitor Taxi Magic; Christian Ohler, an engineer who worked on Google Wave and Dropbox’s APIs; and Minnie Ingersoll who led the development of Google Fiber.

In the last year the company has been in an invite-only stage while building up its operations in Los Angeles and San Francisco, where it’s based.

However, the company’s model attracted early-stage funding from big venture firms DFJ and Highland Capital Partners as well as from Google Maps co-creator Lars Rasmussen, Square founder Jim McKelvey and Shazam founder Chris Barton, among others.

DFJ’s Emily Melton and Highland Capital’s Manish Patel are joining Shift’s board, according to the company.

“We believe Shift can reinvent the sector by delivering premium experiences,” Melton said in a statement. “Businesses predicated on transparency and trust between sellers and consumer buyers can create enormous opportunities and more efficient marketplaces.”

Retro license plate proposal on the move

California lawmakers can’t roll back gas prices or revive eight-track tape players, but they soon may offer motorists something else from decades past: replica license plates.

Assembly Bill 1658 would allow the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue plates resembling those of the 1950s, through ’80s for a fee – $50 initially, $40 per year – to cover administrative costs and raise money for environmental projects.

Assemblyman Mike Gatto, a Los Angeles Democrat who proposed the bill, said it capitalizes on nostalgia and recent production of retro-style vehicles. “What’s old is new,” he says, “and it might make the state a little money, too.”

Plates would not be issued by the DMV until 7,500 had been ordered by the public. They would come in three classic designs, with black lettering on a yellow background, or yellow lettering on either a black or blue background.

The new plates would not be exact reproductions, however. Current plates have seven digits, for example, while those of decades past had six. Reflectivity and font-type standards also have changed through the decades.

AB 1658 received bipartisan support in the Assembly Transportation Committee, 14-0, and is awaiting action in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

we are students of the automotive sales industry

we run the largest dmv certified car dealer school in california

we have watched others pour millions

into failed disruptive technology attempts

look at carwoo

look at truecar

look at best offer

my 3 questions for the beepi.com disruptive technology model are these

where are the buyers guides??

where are the happy stickers??

where are the insured dealer plates??

+++

beepi.com is a licensed used car dealer in santa cruz california

this location, which they admitted to their landlord

is only for purposes of the dmv license

beepi.com seems to be running their operation out of los altos california

from an unlicensed location at 5050 el camino real suite 106

furthermore their disruptive technology model provides delivery to the customer

without a showroom visit to its licensed or its unlicensed location

the questions then arises, if you are transporting these vehicles under tax exempt status

a licensed salesperson or an owner must be present

and the dealer plate with insurance

as required by law

must be posted on the vehicle during transit

we suspect

NONE OF YOUR STAFF HOLDS A VALID SALESPERSON LICENSE

AND VEHICLES IN TRANSIT ARE NEVER DEALER PLATED

AND ONE MUST ASSUME NO VALID CAR DEALER INSURANCE COVERAGE

no salesperson licenses are posted at your santa cruz location

and

because not one photo of a beepi.com car in transit shows a car dealer license plate

AS REQUIRED BY LAW

this one flaw in your disruptive technology used car sales model

when noted by the state board of equalization and the dmv

could spell huge fines and penalties for your $ 65M startup

+++

if you have not addressed these three significant questions

your $ 65M startup is doomed for failure

perhaps a copy of my resume??

can i apply for your dmv liasion position??

+++

gotplates.com

our $ 500 startup

born with love in san francisco

800-901-5950

does @beepi understand the importance of the used car licensed location ???

we are students of the automotive sales industry

and retired law enforcement training officers

we run the largest dmv certified car dealer school in california

we have watched others pour millions

into failed disruptive technology attempts

look at carwoo

look at truecar

look at best offer

my 3 questions for the beepi.com disruptive technology model are these

where are the buyers guides??

where are the happy stickers??

where are the insured dealer plates??

+++

beepi.com is a licensed used car dealer in santa cruz california

this location, which they admitted to their landlord

is only for purposes of the dmv license

beepi.com seems to be running their operation out of los altos california

from an unlicensed location at 5050 el camino real suite 106

furthermore their disruptive technology model provides delivery to the customer

without a showroom visit to its licensed or its unlicensed location

the questions then arises, if you are issuing a temporary operating permit

as required by law

which jurisdiction is getting the location share of the reported sales tax

santa cruz??

los altos??

buyers address of record??

or as we suspect

NONE AT ALL

because not one photo of a sold beepi.com car shows a happy sticker

( temporary operating permit issued by the selling dealer )

this one flaw in your disruptive technology used car sales model

when noted by the state board of equalization

could spell doomsday for your $ 65M startup

+++

if you have not addressed these three significant questions

your $ 65M startup is doomed for failure

perhaps a copy of my resume??

can i apply for your dmv liasion position??
