If you choose a Basic listing, for vehicles listed for $10,000 or less, we charge a $9 fee upfront to publish your listing. For vehicles listed for more than $10,000, we charge a $19 publish fee. This covers our cost of the TRED Kit we will mail to you, and the registration and lien checks we will conduct with your state DMV. 

If you choose a Plus listing, for vehicles listed for $10,000 or less, we charge a $29 fee upfront to publish your listing. For vehicles listed for more than $10,000, we charge a $39 publish fee. In addition to the costs mentioned above, this covers our cost associated with handling more photographs (up to 15) for your listing and reimbursing you for car wash expenses (up to $20).

If you choose a Premium listing, for vehicles listed for $10,000 or less, we charge a $59 fee upfront to publish your listing. For vehicles listed for more than $10,000, we charge a $69 publish fee. In addition to the costs mentioned above, this covers our cost associated with handling even more photographs (up to 30) for your listing and reimbursing you even more for car wash expenses (up to $50). 

Selling Fee Paid at Sale - Seller
When your vehicle sells, we charge a sale fee of the greater of $99 or 0.99% of your selling price. 

Restocking Fee Paid at Deactivation - Seller
If your vehicle doesn't sell through TRED, and you connected with a TRED-sourced buyer, then after your vehicle is deactivated we charge a restocking fee of $99. This partially covers our costs incurred marketing your vehicle. 

Documentation Fee - Buyer
We charge a documentation fee that varies by state and that partially covers our costs of insuring your transaction, keeping you out of the DMV, processing tax, title and registration monies, as well as providing temporary permitting that will allow you to drive your vehicle legally until your permanent plates or tabs arrive by mail.
