Thinking about selling your Car, Motorhome or Boat? Your assets can be at risk!
Selling vs Donating
Sell a Vehicle:
Many people ask themselves the same question every day. “What is the best way to get rid off of my old vehicle” Let’s look at both ways.
First of all you make the decision that you are ready to get rid of your old car, boat, RV, motorhome or aircraft. Once you have done that, you’re ready to begin. But we want to warn you, be careful, there are serious dangers and pitfalls if you decide to sell your vehicle.
The first step is deciding value, the way most sellers do it is to look at valuation sites which are rarely accurate to your item. Then you start the sales process, that should include preparing the item for sale, that generally means an investment in cosmetic and mechanical preparations and repair, please note a significant problem can occur during this portion of the process since there is a no true as-is disclosure in this highly litigious environment, undisclosed defects that you have or may have not had prior knowledge of can and mostly likely lead to litigation.
Before beginning the sales process, you must make sure your title and supporting documents are in ready for sale order, this is one of the most difficult areas to navigate as one mistake can cause extensive liability back to the seller and the seller can be sued for an accident or other events simply because the proper documents were not executed. Most sellers simply sign off on the title and give the buyer the signed title and a bill of sale, remember most titles has a lot of personal information including your name and home address which can lead to potential identity theft.
Consider this, over the years you have built extensive assets and now you want to get rid of your old vehicle and the documents were not properly executed and your new buyer caused an accident with injuries which you may be held liable since you are technically still on the documents this will risk your years of hard work.
The next frustrating step is to advertise the item, there are many sales channels to dispose of your unwanted or no longer needed vehicle. Most sellers prefer an internet-based option which can expose your item to larger group of potential buyers and equally expose you and your family to sophisticated scammers who use false payment documents which appear to be valid. Another cause of concern is where and when do you meet the potential buyers, my best suggestion is to meet them in populated well light public area although this does not guarantee your safety, it will help somewhat, your safety should be your number one priority.
Recent security data indicates there have been an estimated 100 murders associated with online transactions, many where related to vehicle sales.
