Buying Vehicles Online

10 Things You Should Know When Buying a Vehicle Online

Although there are many legitimate online deals, however when buying vehicles online, there are some things you need to know to assure a successful transaction.


Must have original title — NO EXCEPTIONS!

If there is a lien on the title, you must have a stamped or seal lien release.

If purchasing from a dealer, you must ALWAYS have a Bill of Sale.

Get VIN number prior to purchase if possible, to obtain a vehicle history report, such as Carfax.

Always conduct transactions in a public area during daylight hours for safety precautions.


Seller must sign the title as the seller, and if coming from the dealer, must have the proper reassignment assigning the vehicle to the buyer.

If vehicle is 7 years old or less, and purchasing from a private seller, must have a notarized Bill of Sale.

If title has salvage, rebuilt or reconstruction notated, vehicle has damage history.

Verify dealer information such as name of company, phone number, and address.

For questions or concerns for any of these matters, contact our offices.
