PayPal

You might be able to do the entire transaction via Paypal. You could have them send the deposit via paypal and then do another PayPal transaction for the remainder when they come to pick it up...all you need is internet access...

What Kevin said.

You can pay however you want but the trailer is only going behind the one with the Benjamin's!

YIKES!!!!

Dear sir or madam
I have an issue in that my dog is sick/my wife has the flu/my son is graduating/my daughter is getting married/I am working on a cruise ship/I am recovering from a disease so terrible it doesn't even have a name/I am in hiding from the mob/my abusive husband/wife

I will therefore make payment through paypal and my agent will be there tomorrow to pick up your trailer/car/boat/airplane/diamond ring/ whatever it was we were talking about and it will be be shipped to me via international shippers.

I trust you do not mind if I have paypal remit double your asking price so that you can pay for the shipping and then return the balance to me at my Nigerian address..

Yours very very very sincerely and truthfully and honestly

King Midas the 28th of California

I am going to do the same thing. Cold hard cash. It's the only way in my opinion. There are just too many dork's trying to scam everyone one way or another these days.

I was actually suggesting that you (the seller) would be with the buyer when they do the final PayPal transfer and then check your own account to see that the money is there before you turn over the title and keys. It is an immediate transfer and you can verify it before turning anything over. It is only an option if carrying thousands of dollars of cash is not feasible....

RE: PayPal
Actually I think that PayPal currently suggests using their service for deposits only and discourages/prohibits using their service for total payments, at least for vehicles anyway.

Some years ago I accepted American Express travelers checks for a classic motorcycle I was selling. I checked with my bank ahead of time, and they said it would work fine and was safe.
At the time, I was not worried about it, because I was actually holding the bike and title for 2 weeks before the buyer could come to get it.

I wonder if travelers checks would still be a workable solution ??

What a great site!! in 24 hours I have 21 responses all of which are either useful or fun.

I am still deciding on selling but when and if I do, it will involve cash down and full payment before title transfer.

Thanks Egg People!!

RE: Travellers Checks?
To quote the G' kids: "Soooo 20th Century"
I wouldn't know how to tell a fake travellers check from a real one, Ben Franklins are risky enough, but never a Travellers check.
Since the advent of ATM's, most businesses in Europe no longer accept them either.

So - to recap:
No Paypal
No Travellers Checks (Cheques in Canada)
No Cheques (Checks)
No Certified/Cashiers Checks ("Czechs"?)
No Credit Card transactions (unless you are already a credit card-accepting merchant)

Looks a lot like cash is KING!
