Tips for selling your car without getting scammed, robbed – or worse.
If you’re hoping to turn your used car into cash, but want to avoid becoming a victim of fraud, there are ways to work around this.
You can stay safe while selling your car by using common sense and taking the right preventive measures. Here are 11 tips for a smooth transaction:
Create a dedicated email address 
Set up a new email address to use in your online or print ads. Pick a name such as “Mustang2002” or “Toyota_Corolla_2011.” This will protect your privacy and serve as a distinctive point of contact for shoppers.

Vet Callers
You will want to separate serious potential buyers from tire kickers, not to mention crooks, so try to engage shoppers in a phone conversation. You’ll get a better feel for them that way than in an extended email thread or exchange of text messages.

Listen carefully to the questions people ask. Legitimate buyers will want to know a lot about your vehicle before wasting their time coming to see it. Scammers may be quicker to set up a meeting.
Arrange to meet in public

Criminals like to operate where they’re less likely to be seen, so foil them by setting up a meeting in a store parking lot or another location with a lot of traffic, ideally during daylight hours.
If you’re particularly wary, the parking lot of a police station or city hall might not be out of the question. For obvious reasons, it’s best not to give strangers your home address and invite them to see the car where you live.
Tell others about your meeting 
Give a friend or family member a heads-up about your meeting, including the location, time and your expected time of return. And it wouldn’t hurt to give that person a call when the meeting is over.

Don’t go alone

Trust your gut

It’s likely that you’ve gotten a good impression of the buyer on the phone or you wouldn’t have set up a meeting. Still, size up the person and the situation before you get out of your car and trust your instincts.

Ensure safe test drive

f you want to sell your car, you’ll probably need to let potential buyers take it for a drive. But how to keep it from being stolen? Some sources advise that you go along on the ride, but it’s really not a good idea to be in a vehicle with a car thief.

The best strategy is to make sure your insurance covers other drivers, remove valuables from the car, and set a time limit for the test. If possible, use your smartphone to take a photo of the would-be buyer’s driver’s license, or at least write down the name and address. And make sure the photo on the license matches the person at the meeting.

Arrange secure payment location

Even if you’re physically safe, you still could fall victim to a scam. For example, it’s not common practice to make payment at the first meeting. So if the buyer suggests an immediate exchange of cash for the car, that could be a red flag.

One safe way to handle the transaction is to meet a second time at your bank or the buyer’s bank. That way, you can more quickly verify whatever payment method is used.

WATCH: New scheme targeting new car sellers

Get paid before signing over title

Before completing the transaction, be sure you’ve really been paid. Payment by cash or a cashier’s check will help guard against fraud, although there’s no absolute guarantee against a bad check or counterfeiting. Even banks sometimes miss these ploys. And unless the buyer is a relative or close friend, don’t agree to a payment plan.

Clean out car

Remove all your personal property from the vehicle before turning it over to the buyer. You don’t want to lose your phone because you left it plugged into the charging port in the centre console. And you definitely don’t want to be the victim of identity theft because you forgot to remove papers containing personal information.

Be cautious, but not paranoid

Keep in mind that potential buyers are likely to be as wary of you as you are of them. Maintain a professional and non-confrontational demeanour throughout the transaction. Remember that millions of people sell their used cars without any serious problems and incidents of fraud and personal injury are relatively rare.

Purchasing a used car ? In London Ontario . Tips that can help !! Or call Ricky Ratchets Auto Repair . 519-455-5351 

It’s Sunday morning and you’re scrolling through the online classifieds looking for a car. You find a private sale that sparks your interest—“for sale by owner.” What do you do next? Before looking at a car, get educated. Do your research to protect yourself. Here are some tips for buying a car privately in Ontario.
UVIP Report

Carefully Review the Used Vehicle Information Package (UVIP)

When selling a vehicle privately, the seller must provide a Used Vehicle Information Package (UVIP) to the purchaser. This package will contain:

Ontario registration history; current registered owner and vehicle ownership history

Lien information

Past odometer readings

Estimated fair market value of the vehicle

Take A Thorough Test Drive

It is important to take the vehicle on a thorough test drive—don’t just take it around the block, take it on the highway to establish if there are any issues when driving at higher speeds.

Car History ReportObtain A History Report

History reports are a great tool. They often contain vital information including:

Disclosed accident repairs

Lien information (dependent on report)

Previous registration information; if the vehicle has been registered in another jurisdiction (a province or state outside of Ontario)

Carfax and Carproof are the two history reports available to consumers and both reports are available online. Recently CTV Consumer Alert’s Pat Foran aired a story outlining the valuable information these reports provide. Click here to watch.

Inspect Vehicle

Get A Mechanical Inspection

A mechanical inspection can help to identify problems or issues that the seller hasn’t disclosed, or may not even know about. So, take the vehicle to get inspected as the results could influence your decision to buy or lead to a re-negotiation of the price.

Avoid Curbsiders

Curbsiders are illegal, unlicensed dealers who pose as private sellers and cause a serious threat to consumers – so when purchasing a vehicle privately, be certain that you turn on your Creepometer.

Remember, consumer protection laws only apply if you purchase a car from an OMVIC-Registered Dealer. If something goes wrong with your private purchase, you’re on your own with little recourse (other than to sue civilly). So, if you choose to buy privately be informed and do your research.
