WHY USE MARINA BAY SHORE DEPOT?

We live in a changing, reshaping and freshly emerging world. It used to be that when you made the decision to sell your car, boat, RV, or any other vehicle, you had two choices: (1) sell it to a dealer, which can be convenient but often results in a price that is 15-25% less than the private party value; or (2) take on the time consuming challenge of selling it on your own. Marina Bay Shore Depot offers a third option – a service that helps sellers get more money for their cars without the traditional hassles and risk of transacting in the private market.

Marina Bay Shore Depot services are designed for our changing times. We serve online and off-line customers with time-saving convenience, money-saving products, and valuable assistance accessing the massive e-commerce marketplace.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS BUYERS AND SELLERS CAN ENJOY:

Avoid answering phone calls at all  hours.

Avoid having to find time in your busy schedule to show the vehicle.

Avoid strangers breaching your privacy by visiting your home.

Avoid diminishing the enjoyment of your time off work, weekends and holidays because of having to wait near the phone for prospects to call.

Avoid the inconvenience and frustration of rearranging your schedule for prospects who say they are "coming right over," and then never show up.

Avoid having "tire kickers" and unqualified people (those without the means to purchase your vehicle) come to your house for no other reason than to "see what it's like" to drive a BMW, Porsche, Infiniti, or Lexus, etc.

Avoid having to leave your valued possession on the side of a highway, or in a store parking lot with a "For Sale" sign on your windshield, only to experience the inconvenience and expense of having your car ticketed and towed for illegal parking.

Avoid the hassle of expensive classified ads.

MARINA BAY SHORE DEPOT FOR BUYERS:

1. KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT

By purchasing vehicles directly from the vehicle’s owner, you avoid paying traditional middlemen markups and receive true private party values. We’ll help you understand the value you receive by showing you the same market data that we use to help sellers price their vehicles. We want you to feel good about buying a great vehicle at a fair price.

Our standard 7-Day Money Back Guarantee available for all vehicles, the 63-Point-System-Check and the Delivery Inspection, give Buyers the peace of mind they need when buying a used vehicle online. If a Buyer decides to return a vehicle, the Seller will be fully responsible for the shipping costs associated with the process of returning the vehicle.

When a vehicle is listed for sale, we compare the original sellers description and pictures with the actual vehicle's state and condition. Sellers also have the possibility of using their own photos, if they are recent, of high-quality and of the actual vehicle being sold. Stock photos are not allowed.

2. FREE SERVICE

Buyers at Marina Bay Shore Depot will only pay DMV license, registration fees and taxes that are passed directly through to the relevant authorities. Any other transaction fees earned by Marina Bay Shore Depot are paid solely by the Seller. There are no hidden fees.

3. FLEXIBILITY

With Marina Bay Shore Depot, vehicles can be purchased for less than the asking price, if the Seller accepts your offer. Offers must be made directly to the Seller and it is entirely up to the Seller to accept or decline your offer. Marina Bay Shore Depot will not negotiate the price on Seller's behalf.

MARINA BAY SHORE DEPOT FOR SELLERS:

1. NO SALE - NO CHARGE

We offer a No-Sale-No-Charge approach to selling cars, boats, trailers, RV's and other vehicles. We take an up front fee of $199, which covers the work we do to prepare and market your vehicle for sale, including a thorough 63-Point-System-Check inspection, state safety inspection, basic interior and exterior cleaning, a vehicle history report, professional photographs, ad copy-writing, and various Internet listings. If your vehicle needs a full detail, we can take care of that for you for an additional $100 for sedans and $120 for trucks and SUVs. Boats, RV's and other vehicles can cost considerably more, depending on the service needed.

After we successfully sell your vehicle, we take a success fee directly from the sales proceeds. Our incentives are completely aligned: If we don’t sell it, we don’t get paid a success fee.

We find this gives online Sellers peace of mind their vehicle or Item is safe while in our custody. It also makes us work harder!

Secondly our Sellers pay no marketing or administrative costs.

2. SAFE RV, BOAT & VEHICLE STORAGE.

While waiting to be sold, we are proud to offer our customers with a variety of  storage solutions for their recreational vehicles, motorcycles, cars, trailers and personal watercraft. Our facilities are complete with many upgrades and conveniences to ensure your vehicles are protected from the elements in a nearby and safe location, until they are shipped to the Buyer.  We are here to provide safe solutions to make your life easier.

3. SELL SAFE & COMFORTABLE

Marina Bay Shore Depot takes on the time consuming challenge of selling your vehicle on your own, and offers a service that helps sellers get more money for their cars without the traditional hassles and risk of transacting in the private market.

When you list your vehicle with Marina Bay Shore Depot, you will receive all of the features and benefits of a best-in-class dealership working on your behalf to sell your car quickly and professionally. Our team will educate you on market conditions to help you price your car competitively, clean and prepare your car for sale to maximize its appeal, advertise and display your car effectively to maximize coverage, manage buyer inquiries and test drives, and provide you continuous updates to keep you informed. Once you are matched with a buyer, we will arrange any document processing on your behalf.

WHAT DO I NEED TO LIST MY VEHICLE WITH MARINA BAY SHORE DEPOT?

To get started, we will need a copy of your driver’s license, current registration, proof of insurance, title (or lienholder information, if applicable), any available service records, and a full tank of gas.

Our goal is to get you the highest possible price for what you sell! We work to present your vehicle in the best possible way in our listings. Here are some tips:

DOCUMENTATION

Original, manuals, instructions, receipts, appraisals, accessories -- anything at all that you still have that came with the vehicle -- is almost always helpful in bringing up the final price. This is especially important for vehicles. Before you sell your vehicle with us, take a few minutes to find all the related materials you can.

FLAWS & DEFECTS

Most of the vehicles sold on eBay, Craigslist or Kijiji are used, and Buyers expect them to have some flaws and defects; but they must be disclosed in the listing! In fact, many Buyers are wary of purchasing “perfect” vehicles which are not new. If you know of any flaw or defect of your vehicle, tell us at the time of your registration. If you don't, chances are the Buyer will return the vehicle and you will be responsible for any additional costs of reversing the shipping process.

MAKE IT SHINE!

A picture is worth a thousand words, and that is certainly true on eBay, Craigslist or Kijiji. While we are more than happy to wipe off a little dust or a few smudges, often Sellers choose to use their own photos. If you choose to do so, take lots of pictures of your vehicle for marketing purposes. Make sure to get exterior shots of all corners and sides, pictures of wheels and tires, close-ups of any special features (Navigation screen, sunroof, DVD players, satellite radio buttons, power seat buttons), and all the interior seats in their various configurations (i.e. take a shot of your SUV with the back seats up and down, etc.)  The best time from a lighting perspective to take pictures of your vehicle is in the late afternoon.
