Depending on sale channel, announced conditions, or sale price, other arbitration policies may apply. Please see:

Updated: January 4, 2021

Effective January 4, 2021, in addition to the vehicle arbitration rules set forth in Manheim Terms and Conditions, this Addendum to the 2017 NAAA Arbitration Policy applies for digital sales transacted through OVE.com and Manheim Express (“Addendum”). In the event of a conflict between the vehicle arbitration rules set forth in the Manheim Terms and Conditions and those set forth in this Addendum, this Addendum will control.  

The 2017 NAAA Arbitration Policy, as set forth in the Manheim Marketplace Policies (the “Manheim Arbitration Policy”), serves as the baseline for OVE.com and Manheim Express arbitrations except as detailed below.  In the event of a conflict between the Manheim Arbitration Policy and those set forth in this Addendum, this Addendum will control.

Special Arbitration Procedures for OVE

  1. Sale Light System OVE does not operate with a sale light system. All Vehicles are considered to be “Ride and Drive” unless specifically noted as “As-Is”. Vehicles selling “As-Is” will only qualify for arbitration under the rules outlined in the Arbitration Guidelines section of Manheim Arbitration Policy. Any Vehicle that sells for $3000 or under is considered As-Is and can only be arbitrated for conditions outlined in the NAAA policy and Appendix I.A to this Addendum.
  2. Seller Responsibilities
    1. The Seller understands that the online listing and disclosures are a binding arbitration representation of Vehicle condition by Seller. Seller is therefore responsible for ensuring that their Vehicles are listed accurately regardless of disclosure requirements in NAAA policy and Appendix I.A.
    2. Seller is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of all representations and descriptions as outlined by the NAAA policy.  In addition, the seller is responsible for the disclosure of additional items detailed in this document.  Disclosures made only in “seller comments” without notation in the appropriate field do not exempt the Vehicle from arbitration.
    3. If announced as Title Present, Seller must provide title within 3 business days of the sale unless state law specifies a different time period. If announced as Title Attached/Title Unavailable/Title Absent, Seller must provide title within 30 calendar days unless state law specifies a different time period. In all cases, Sale day is Day 1.
