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

Are you buying 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.

If you are a buyer, please download our Buyer's Documents to set up an account. We suggest that Buyers point Sellers to this webpage or send Sellers the "Seller Documents" below in order to introduce them to the service we provide.

Are you a seller wondering how to make a safe, risk-free transaction? Sure, you want to trust the guy on the telephone who tells you the check is in the mail, but fraud is so prevalent. If you are a seller and you wish to make a smooth, smart and safe transaction please see the FAQs below and download our Seller's Documents to get prepared for the transaction using our proven method!

Our exchange service is very reasonably priced. We make the transaction a safe and satisfying experience by exchanging money for title.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why should I use Classic Car Guy's Exchange services?
A. Classic Car Guy provides a low cost, easy to use, form of "insurance" 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.

Q. How Much Does It Cost and Who pays the service fee to Classic Car Guy?
A. The fee for our service is $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 check or credit card charge sent to Classic Car Guy along with the funds sent to Classic Car Guy by the buyer to pay for the Vehicle.

Q. So, can you tell me basically how it works?
A. Sure. The Buyer Documents gives us the basic information about the account. What the commodity is (typically an automobile), contact info for buyer and seller, the price of the commodity, etc. The Buyer is instructed to send Classic Car Guy money (by wiring money to our account, or by virtue of sending a check made out to the seller) for the purchase of the commodity.

The Seller Documents gather information from the Seller which should collaborate with the information Buyer has provided. The Seller instructs us how he/she wishes to be paid (by wire, by check). The Seller is instructed to send signed Bill of Sale and Title for safe holding. 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.
