Used ATVs can be purchased through online ATV and vehicle dealers, such as Quad Hunter and Deals on Wheels, as well as through the classifieds section of ATV.com. Online auction websites, such as eBay, also frequently sell used ATVs from private sellers and smaller dealers.
The classifieds section of ATV.com allows users to browse all current listings based on brand or to search the entire database for listings that meet specific criteria such as make, model and location of the seller. Listings contain details about the vehicle's condition and features and a symbol to denote if the seller is a dealer or private individual. The site is also partnered with Escrow.com to reduce the risk of fraud by acting as an intermediary between buyers and sellers that holds and verifies funds to ensure that neither party is cheated.
ATVs sold on eBay are listed with one of several pricing options. Most items sold through eBay are done so under the auction model, in which the seller lists a starting price and auction duration, during which time buyers place bids to purchase the item. However, some items feature a Buy It Now price that allows buyers to immediately purchase the item without placing any bids.
