We advice that you do as much research about both the Parts you are buying and also the Seller before deciding to buy. We have online user reviews as well as products reviews which can be used as a guide. Check out what other customers are saying and review the comments from other buyers; this will go a long way to ensuring you make a safe purchase. Possibly, call the seller to make sure the pictures on the advert are exactly what you will be getting. If unsure about anything, do not second guess, contact the seller to clarify.

We take no responsibility for any issues or loss which may arise between you and the seller. Make sure you check and ask as much information as possible from the seller before committing to a payment. If possible arrange a visit with the seller to see and check the Parts or Vehicle and if necessary, check the documents before handing over any money.
We recommend you contact the seller or buyer through our messaging and contact number available on the AutoScrap Market website and App platforms.
