Rawhide Certified Guarantee

Seven-Day, Bumper-to-Bumper Buy-Back Guarantee!

We are continually striving to meet your needs as dealers, as well as benefit the youth of Rawhide. To do this, Rawhide has implemented a substantial inspection process beyond the standard auction requirements. What does this mean for you?

  1. Rawhide is taking out the guesswork and saving you time and money while at auction.
  2. You’ll know up-front the extent of repairs needed to get the car ready to go on your lot before you even make a bid.
  3. Blue ribbon vehicles that sell for $3,000 or more qualify for our Rawhide Certified Guarantee

Our Promise to You with the Rawhide Certified Guarantee

Customer satisfaction guaranteed. We thoroughly inspect each and every vehicle for you (see inspected areas below). Blue Ribbon cars do not need any mechanical repairs. Red Ribbon sold as is.

Either way you can make an informed decision without having to worry about unexpected costs. Within the first seven days of your purchase (including the purchase date) if you find something we missed and it is $400 or more to repair, we will either make the repair or buy it back.

Blue Ribbon – No Repairs Needed to Meet Wisconsin Legal Requirements

Purchases are guaranteed against major undisclosed defects (repairs of $400 or more) for a period of seven (7) consecutive days, including day of purchase.

The guarantee is to the original wholesale buyer, is not transferable, and is void upon resale. Seller retains the right to repair or refund disputed purchases.
