How to buy a car out of state?
I'm looking at an M across the country. I plan to buy sight unseen. I will have a PPI done, the car is still under warranty, etc. The buyer I trust, and everything checks out.
Here's the issue.
He has a lien on the car, so does not have the title in hand. I plan to pay to have the car shipped. I'm paying cash.
So how do I pay off the car, get the title sent to me, and have the car show up with no risk?
If this isnt possible, I'll keep looking.
I was thinking maybe I can have the local dealer where he bought the car handle the transaction? I "trust" the dealer. Maybe I would even fly in to drive the car, check it out, and do the transaction in person.
