Have you ever listed your vehicle and all of a sudden you start receiving bogus texts and calls? Yeah, we hate that too. We’ve all seen the scams. “Will you accept a wire transfer?” “Will you ship the vehicle overseas?” Maybe they offer you well above the asking price without ever seeing the vehicle or you get the non-serious buyer who is just trying to see how low you’ll go on the price. We have heard it all.
You finally manage to filter through all the static and find a serious buyer but now what? Can you trust that this person is legit? When and where should we meet for a test drive? What paperwork do we need to sign for a legal and smooth transfer of ownership? How are you going to get paid? When will you actually see the funds in your account?
The list of questions could go on and on... Don’t worry, you’re not alone! We've experienced this old-school, clunky, awkward driveway sale and thought “There HAS to be a better way!” This is exactly what motivated us to create PrivateAuto.
