Tell me guys - how do you handle payment, etc. on ebay? Escrow? PayPal? How about vehicle transport...

WW
I would have them either leave a non refundable deposit on paypal with the balance paid by certified check or wire transfer or show up in person within 10 days of the auction ending with the cash. I like the second transaction best:eyebrow: As far as shipping the car, I would leave that in the hands of the buyer. When you setup an auction always include these terms within the desciption, so the bidder/buyer is fully aware of the terms he/she is about to agree to. good luck WW and any other questions just ask:thumbsup:

Thanks, BBC (British?). I appreciate your insight.

WW
British? No No No... Actually Italian & Portuguese....
If you were seriously wondering, the bigblockcaddy screen name is b/c my, recently sold on Ebay, camaro had a big block engine with a supercharger and now I only have my CTS left.

Also I told my younger brother about your V for $30k, and he wish he knew before he bought his 03 ZO6 Vette. He had that look in his eyes, but I told him he needs to start keeping his cars for more than 2-3 years each. This is his third Vette and he had an 04 GTO. It's good to be young......

dont those nigerian scan things use forged certified checks?

You never let the car leave your garage until your bank manager confirms and the check clears. I agree CASH is always the best way

Cash is king...I totally agree...

No one will give you 30,000 green bills(cash). Even it could be counterfeit.
For the Vadermobile I received a Chase Money Order for $1,000 deposit. He showed up to get the car. In Ohio you have to sign over the title in front a Notary. I think all Banks have Notaries. So I took hime down the road to my Bank to sign it over and deposit the $22,500 balance in that Bank. I was using the Bank to certify the money orders. The guy had a Yukon and a trailer to haul it back to NY. All went well. eBay worked fine for me WW:thumbsup:

Alright, I had to keep spamming everyone with this, but the V goes on ebay next week if not sold by then. My local asking price is $35K with some interest - so this $30K deal to forum members and enthusiasts is a steal.

This is my last post on this subject on this forum.

Enjoy.

I used a wire transfer. My bank supplies all the common bank functions like traveler's checks, cashier's checks, and wire transfers for free.

Thanks for the tips, ladies.

BTW - you might be surprised that some people actually do pay in green bills. Most I've ever seen were 500 identical portraits, and we're not talking pocket change. I was astounded, to say the least, and they were from another printer, so a bit suspicious, but all was well.

Different strokes for different folks I suppose.
