  4. Ensure the point of meeting is an open space

What to look out for when test driving

  1. Listen for noises, rattles or grinding sounds. If you hear rattling in the quarter panels, the car may have been in a wreck.
  2. See if the car shifts smoothly.
  3. Check the heater and the A/C.
  4. Listen for grinding noises when the A/C kicks in which can mean the bearings in the compressor are worn.
  5. Check the dashboard for strange light
  6. Drive with the radio on and off.
  7. Test the speakers to see if they are cracked.
  8. Make sure the CD player works.
  9. Take the car on a highway, main streets, and side streets, see if the car loses alignment, or bears to the left or right.
  10. See how the brakes are.
  11. Make sure all the seat belts work, that power seats work.
  12. Look for missing or burned out bulbs inside and out.

Check all the Faults

  1. Check under the hood to see how clean the engine is.
  2. Check the transmission fluid and make sure it’s not black.
  3. Check the air pressure in the tires and check for uneven wear on the tread.
  4. Ask the seller when the tires were last replaced.
  5. Ask question about the car’s past. At this point
  6. Hinges like high mileage, bad tires, cracked dash, faded paint, rust, seat stains, missing mats and torn ceiling will greatly reduce the value of the car. You must use that to your advantage in negotiating (used) car prices down.

Other Safety Tips

  1. Meet Sellers in Person

Check out item’s quality and make sure it  meets your expectations before you make payment

  1. Prepayments are strictly prohibited on Tushride

Buyers – never pay before purchase. You can discuss the cost of delivery, but you can pay for the product only after delivery is done

Sellers – don’t ask for any prepayment before delivery

  1. Vehicle Inspection

Do not go to the remote or unfamiliar places for inspection. Also, check the vehicle documents to verify compliance with the law, and that the seller has the right (title) to sell.

  1. Use Common Sense

Avoid anything that appears too good to be true, such as unrealistically low prices and promises of quick money

  1. Never give out your financial information

Including bank account details, including BVN, card details, passwords, and any other information that could be misused.

  1. Fake fee Requests

Avoid anyone who ask for extra fees to buy or sell an item or services. Tushride.com never requests payment for its basic services and does not allow items that are not located in Nigeria, so import and breakage fees should never be required

  1. Request to use money transfer services

Certain money transfer services are not meant for transactions between strangers and many scams are run through them, avoid such requests. Shine your eyes.
