Safety Tips

Iko Gari is a safe and secure platform for buying and selling cars, but there are still some safety tips you should follow to protect yourself:

When buying a car:

  • Do your research. Before you start looking at cars, do some research to learn about the different makes and models. This will help you narrow down your search and make an informed decision.
  • Meet the seller in person. Always meet the seller in person before you buy a car. This will give you a chance to inspect the car and ask the seller any questions you have.
  • Take the car for a test drive. This is your chance to see how the car drives and make sure it’s in good condition.
  • Get the car inspected by a mechanic. A mechanic can give you an independent opinion of the car’s condition.
  • Pay with a secure payment method. You should never pay for a car with cash or a personal check. Use a secure payment method, such as a credit card or wire transfer.

When selling a car:

  • Be honest about the car’s condition. Don’t try to hide any problems with the car. If you’re honest, you’ll be more likely to find a buyer who is happy with the car.
  • Provide clear photos and descriptions of the car. This will help buyers get a good idea of what the car looks like and what its condition is.
  • Set a fair price. Do some research to see what similar cars are selling for. This will help you set a fair price for your car.
  • Meet the buyer in person. This will give you a chance to hand over the car and collect the payment.

By following these safety tips, you can help protect yourself when buying and selling cars on Iko Gari.

Here are some additional safety tips:

  • Be aware of scams. There are scammers who operate on Iko Gari and other online car marketplaces. Be aware of common scams, such as fake listings and overpayment scams.
  • Use common sense. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t be afraid to walk away from a deal if you’re not comfortable with it.
