Buyer Protection Plan

Our Buyer Protection Plan (BPP) helps make your bidding and buying time more productive. While sellers are responsible for the representations made about the vehicles they consign, it’s the buyer’s responsibility to confirm those representations in a timely manner (see DAA Northwest’s General Policies and DAA Seattle & DAA Las Vegas’ General Policies). When you purchase a BPP for a vehicle, you hire us to inspect the vehicle to confirm the representations, and if necessary, start the arbitration process if we find any discrepancies.

Currently, our Washington State auctions offer BPPs. We plan to launch the program at DAA Las Vegas soon.

How It Works

Let your MAG Sales Rep know if you would like a BPP during business hours the day of your purchase. Our inspection team will conduct a test drive and a visual inspection to determine if there are issues with the vehicle that should result in arbitration. If so, the deal will be placed in arbitration and we will contact you.

When the vehicle arrives at your dealership you should perform a standard safety and service inspection (Note: The BPP inspection is not designed to cover this level of inspection).

If a defect or required repair surfaces in a system or component that is specifically covered by the terms of sale and DAA’s General Policies within the required time (either 7 or 14 days) you should contact the auction you purchased the vehicle from to have the matter resolved. DAA will, at its discretion, reimburse you or repair the vehicle up to the maximum amount of the applicable coverage.

BPP Conditions

  1. While buyers have the option of ordering an inspection service on any vehicle purchased, the BPP coverage will only apply to covered items. Modified vehicles are subject to limited coverage.
  2. DAA must receive notice of any problems by the close of business either 7 or 14 business days following the sale, depending upon the program option purchased. Sale Day is Day #1.
  3. Verification of diagnosis and repair estimates will be provided by DAA, or at a shop selected by DAA. The Auction, at its discretion, will cancel the sale or repair the vehicle. Buyers are responsible for promptly moving the vehicle to the inspection or repair facility designated by DAA.
  4. Vehicles that have been resold, driven excessively, damaged or misused after leaving the auction premises are disqualified from BPP claims eligibility.
  5. The repair or reimbursement coverage provided by DAA is limited to the maximum amount of coverage according to the level of inspection chosen at the time of sale.
  6. Any compensation, price adjustment or repairs made under the BPP are subject to MAG’s General Policies and may change from time to time without notice.
  7. Online physical auction purchases of eligible vehicles will include the purchase of 7-Day Frame & Drive BPP unless specifically declined by the buyer.
