You can buy a new, used or refurbished ATV online through eBay, Craigslist, ATV.com and ATVTrader.com. You can also buy an ATV through a local ATV dealership, which often offer buy-back programs, financing and other incentives to subsidize the purchase of an ATV.
While eBay, ATV.com and ATVTrader.com all offer a wide selection of certified pre-owned and new vehicles, Craigslist does not offer certified pre-owned vehicles and offers a very small selection of new vehicles. Craigslist.com also does not offer any form of buyer protection in the case of fraud or other issues during the course of a purchase. In contrast, eBay.com, ATV.com and ATVTrader.com all offer some form of buyer protection, along with a grace period in which buyers are allowed to return their purchases if they are not completely satisfied. Despite this, buyers on Craigslist do have access to local ATV listings that don't necessarily appear on larger automotive websites.
For people who want to perform a local purchase but require a full guarantee of product quality and the option of a refund, ATV.com offers users access to a nationwide selection of local classified listings and even moderates all sales through their listings. This helps ensure a hassle-free buying experience and provides greater security than a sale through a website such as Craigslist.
