How Curated.Bid Works


We are a marketplace with Hand-Selected Adventure-Ready 4x4s, Overlanders, and Adventure Vans for sale. We are not a dealer and, as a marketplace, are equally interested in making sure that the buyer and seller are equally satisfied with the transaction.


Buyers pay a 5% commission, capped at $7,500, to Curated Bid upon the purchase of a Make Offer transaction.

Buyers pay the seller directly for the sale price of the vehicle. Any additional taxes, license fees, etc. are paid by the buyer. 


Sellers list for free and receive 100% of the agreed upon sales price. Curated.Bid reaches 10’s of thousands of enthusiasts per month.

Sellers submit vehicles to sell on the platform, and we scour the U.S. market to find only the best Adventure-Ready Vehicles for sale.

make offer format:

No set time limit, buyers can submit an offer to the sellers at anytime. Buyers can indicate any contingencies to their offer.

vehicle information:

We want to position the vehicles in the best light possible for both the buyers and the sellers. In an ideal world, every vehicle on the platform would have high-quality detailed pictures, and documented information about their builds and modifications. We encourage questions and comments on the platform.

seller / buyer transaction:

We encourage the buyer and seller to engage with one another, have a pre-purchase inspection, and conduct the final transaction between the buyer and seller through a platform that helps ensures trust between the parties like our partner KeySavvy. Shipping can be arranged through our partner RunBuggy.
