Services Offered on Website
Car Buying Assistance
FindwithEd.com offers services to clients who contact Edward via the website or directly for the purchase of new or used vehicles, the modifications of a car they own already, or any other mechanic services including the Riteve (annual vehicle safety inspection). The specific service is described in detail on the relevant page of the website and/or via email. The general terms of the services are as follows:
Service Description and Features
My service is full assistance for the purchase of buying a used or new vehicle in Costa Rica. The service includes, but is not limited to the following aspects: preliminary consultation and guidance by email or phone regarding budget and vehicle information, guidance regarding legal procedures in Costa Rica, guidance regarding insurance in Costa Rica, vehicle documentation in Costa Rica, financial advice, and forms of payment, translation/communication services, driving and transportation services, guidance and assistance through the process of completing the purchase of a particular vehicle. It specifically does not include legal fees or advice, or mechanical inspection fees or advice.
My service can be provided in a single day or can be spread over several days that may not be contiguous. The car buying assistance service is designed to help simplify the process of buying a car in Costa Rica. My objective is to provide superior service at a fair price, and my service is 100% guaranteed within the aspects listed in the description. If the cars selected for vehicle purchase were not confidence-inspiring or the customer decides not to purchase any of the cars for any other reason, FindWithEd.com will retain the 50% of the service fee already paid at the beginning. If the service was incomplete due to logistical reasons (mechanical transportation failure, social unrest, natural disasters, man-made disasters, other reasons beyond our control, force majeure), no fee will be charged.
The service fee is quoted in US dollars and paid in cash or by bank transfer. 50% is due at the first appointment, but can also be paid in advance. The balance is due at the closing of the purchase.
FindWithEd.com, its owner, and its employees or consultants shall be liable only to the extent of the Service Fee (excluding IVA) for issues relating solely to the provision of the service itself, as defined in the description and features.
The vehicle warranty is provided by the seller. In the case of vehicles purchased from private individual sellers, there is no formal warranty required by Costa Rican law.
If the vehicle, whether new or used, is acquired from a car dealer, the Law of Effective Consumer Protection applies. In the sale of used vehicles, it is important to know that the minimum warranty period is 30 business days, and not 1 month as most indicate. Some used car dealers provide a warranty document stating that it only covers the “engine and gearbox”, which is illegal as the warranty covers all parts of the vehicle for 30 business days.
The warranty on a new vehicle includes the free repair of any defect or problem that the vehicle may present, except for any damages or unauthorized modifications made by the buyer. However, such repairs are understood as occasional defects or problems, considering that the vehicle must meet a standard of performance and quality.
The warranty and any service to address issues overall in the vehicle is the responsibility of the dealer who sells the car. FindWithEd.com does not provide any warranty on the vehicle selected by the client, or in addition to the warranty or other service provided by the dealer. Any issue within the 30-day period after purchase must be brought to the dealer’s attention, and the vehicle must be returned to its place of business or designated location in order to diagnose the issue. The dealer will inform the purchaser of the results and whether the issue is covered under warranty. In many cases, the issues are not under the warranty required by law, but the dealer will be able to address the issue at no charge. In other cases, they may provide free labor if the purchaser pays for the parts, or in some cases, they will only provide references for reliable specialists to perform the work. FindWithEd.com may provide translation or assistance with communication.
