How to Safely Buy / Sell a Car - Anywhere in the world

a car from far away? Are you a little nervous about sending a wad
of money to a seller? Do you wonder if the seller will come through
and send you a title, or do you picture him on vacation with your
money somewhere in the Caribbean?
There is a different
way to buy a car without sticking your neck out. We offer a third
party document exchange service for buyers and sellers performing
automobile transactions throughout the nation. Due to the Internet and the rise of national publications like Hemmings
Motor News and Trader Publications, there has never been a time in history where cars are
bought and sold from long distances apart with such regularity. Therefore, buyers and
sellers need protection more than ever before.

Q. Why should I use Classic Car Guy's

to make your transaction with other people safe and easy. It takes
the trust issue out of any transaction (not just automobiles) and helps prevent fraudulent
sales. In addition, ClassicCarGuy.com is an ACCREDITED member of the BBB with an A+ rating since starting the Business in 1999!
Q. How Much Does It Cost and Who pays the service fee to Classic
A. The fee for our service is just $200.00. The seller and buyer can agree on who pays the service fee, although
the buyer typically pays it. The service fee is a separate charge sent to Classic Car Guy along with the
funds to buy the Vehicle.
Q. So, can you tell me basically how it works?
A. Sure. Once we receive the Buyer Documents, we have the basic information about the buyer and What is to be purchased,
the price of the commodity (in this case a Vehicle), etc. and we set up the account accordingly.
The Seller Documents gather information from the Seller which should collaborate with the information the Buyer has provided.
The Seller instructs us how he/she wishes to be paid (by wire, by check).
The Seller is instructed to send a signed Bill of Sale and Title
for safe holding to CCG. Meanwhile, the Buyer is instructed to send Classic Car Guy payment for the Vehicle.
This may be done by wiring money to our account, or by sending a check made out to the Seller if that is Seller's preference.
Once funds are in the account and title and Bill of Sale are received, we send money to the Seller and Title and BOS to Buyer.

A. Yes, anyone can use Classic Car Guy services. Any vehicle(s)purchased from any classified ads, etc. are eligible.
