How many days is the vehicle protected?

Dealers have up to 21 days to submit a claim to return the vehicle to an ADESA auction. A return must be initiated before the end of the 21st calendar day after the purchase date, with the purchase date being day zero.

If you use CarsArrive Network for transport of an ADESA Assurance vehicle, we'll increase your guarantee to 30 days. If the vehicle is returned, we'll refund your transportation cost up to $250. ADESA Assurance and CarsArrive Network must both be selected at the time of purchase to qualify.

Can a vehicle be returned for any reason? if so, how much is the return?

Yes, a vehicle can be returned for any reason within the mileage allotment and in like condition. You will be reimbursed the purchase price, plus the buy fee.*

What happens if I already receive an automatic PSI?

If you don’t want a PSI automatically generated on your purchased vehicles, please inform ADESA when you set up your subscription. You can then manually request or select PSI at the time of purchases.

What paperwork do I need to return a vehicle?

A vehicle return form must accompany the vehicle for check in and inspection purposes. A negotiable title must accompany the vehicle to the returning ADESA auction location agreed to at time of claim submission.

What if I want to return a vehicle that would have been covered under arbitration?

To comply with NAAA guidelines and protect the ADESA Assurance guarantee, we recommend—if you have a valid arbitration—to follow the arbitration process at the ADESA auction purchasing location before returning the vehicle through ADESA Assurance.
