Terms & conditions

The Carfair does not take responsibility or accept liability for any transactions, terms & conditions, terms of purchase, deposit and payment arrangements, WOF and registration issues.

All dealings are between the buyer and seller. It is "Buyer Beware". Furthermore Buyers should be aware that from time to time some sellers advertising through any medium including the Car Fair, may present themselves under false pretences.

While the Car Fair aims to minimise any risk of this it cannot guarantee to eliminate it. Therefore it is important to understand that all transactions entered into are completely at your own risk and The Car Fair does not take any responsibility or give any warranties.

The Car Fair also recommends you avail yourselves of services to conduct the relevant checks on vehicles. These are normally provided on site on Sundays or via links on our website.
