Thanks all for the timely responses.
I've done a little research on my own also and it appears the onus of responsibility (and trust) is on the prospective buyer. In other words- I'm planning on having him wire the money to my account, wait an appropriate amount of time until I feel comfortable that it's legit (or withdraw the money) and then let him proceed with shipping plans.
That's another of my concerns- does the shipping broker pick the car up from my house or would the seller (me) assist with transporting the car to a port? I wouldn't mind taking the car to the shipper if it is one of the ports within reasonable distance ( Toledo, Detroit or Cleveland).
I am hoping to hear from a member who has gone through this process to hear how their transaction went.
when you give banking info (international routing number <available from your banking institution>, local account number, etc.) that this is FOR DEPOSIT ONLY, and is not authorized for any withdrawal
. Your local banking institution will be able to give you an international routing number that is good only for deposit or wire transfer of INCOMING funds
If done via international wire transfer, the funds should clear in 3-5 business days. Then and only then
should you release the vehicle title and proceed with driving it to a local courier. The buyer should be able to arrange for transport from his end, especially with current internet capabilities and shipping zip codes.
