  • The core mission of certified.org is to expand the “certified revolution.”  Last year, over 40 million used vehicles were sold in the United States, and fewer than two million of these were certified by factory-sponsored programs.  Yet two-thirds of used car-buyers today begin their search looking for a certified vehicle.  This “certification gap” exists in the market for many reasons, including the fact that consumers and automotive retailers have not had access to an independent certification standard.  Put simply, certified.org is that standard.

    Our products are used by automotive dealers and private for-sale by owner sellers.  For dealers, they can sign up for a certified.org account and begin certifying their vehicles immediately.  Our dealer product includes several key components:



    > A 125-point inspection, using the certified.org national inspection checklist.

    > Access to 3, 6, and 12-month limited warranties from an “A” rated underwriter.

    > A 3-day, 300-mile exchange guarantee.

    > Vehicle History Report and supporting point of sale merchandising for the vehicle, including a customized window sticker and CPO Report.

    > Access to extended service plans for your customers.



    If you are a dealer and are interested in beginning to certify your vehicles, which can be up to 15 years old and have less than 150,000 miles, click here to register for an account.

    For private sellers, certified.org offers a innovative way to market and sell your vehicle as certified, through a simple three-step process.  By selling with certified.org, your vehicle will stand out in a crowded marketplace and generate significant buyer interest.  You will get the following:

    > Your vehicle will be marketing as certified and come with a 3-month / 3,000-mile limited warranty, which is provided by an “A” rated insurance underwriter.  Your buyer will activate this coverage at time of sale.

    > Your vehicle comes with a Vehicle History Report, ensuring to your buyer that your vehicle has a clean title and a clean history.

    > You will be given custom marketing images and detailed instructions on how to market your certified vehicle on Craig’s List, the leading vehicle marketplace.

    > You will be advertised on 10 leading automotive websites across the Internet, and you will receive top Google search ranking for your vehicle.

    > You can add $500 to $1,000 to the sales price of your vehicle because it’s certified and comes with a limited warranty and verified clean title.
