B. Our business and our relationships with our customers and users

Through the Site at www.CarLotz.com we provide a listing service for sellers who want to sell their private vehicles on an “AS IS” basis or with an optional warranty. Simply register your car with us, provide all of the details and choose a listing price. We’ll do the rest. For example, we will clean your vehicle, take photos of the vehicle, secure an updated state inspection, advertise the car on leading car retailing websites and publications, arrange test-drives and manage buyer interest. We’ll speak with and screen potential buyers and pass legitimate offers to you to accept or decline, we’ll prepare necessary sales documents and facilitate the financial transaction between you and the buyer.
