I buy a used car without scams

Before venturing into research, it is important to know the strong trends of the market: the city car is an expanding car at the moment, just like the SUV, very in vogue and whose sales figures do not cease increasing. On the other hand, there is a continued decline in interest in "notchback" sedans, assimilated to taxis or VTCs, and whose demand is slowing. Diesel remains the main fuel and powerplant in the market, due to very strong sales for many years, while new car sales are now dominated by gasoline and hybrids. Finally in France, it is often the French vehicles are privileged, thanks to their quality and to the enthusiasm for the models of the French manufacturers (Renault, Peugeot, Citroën, DS) these last years…

The market of the second-hand car is now split into several categories of sellers: individuals, professionals, and the new trusted intermediaries in used cars, which have been very popular for some time: they simplify the connection between individuals, while bringing security and serenity to both parties, without adding to the bill during the purchase, nor reducing the profit during the sale. The profit is total for each party and the risk of scams soars!

I perform the administrative procedures

This is the '' all the documents to be collected during the purchase and the documents to be completed. During the sale, the seller gives the buyer the essential papers for future administrative procedures:

The registration certificate (ex-gray card): crossed out and signed, specifying the date and time of the sale, which acts as a gray card while waiting for the news. It is mandatory to have it for the sale. The transfer certificate: which is the sales contract: one copy for the buyer, the seller keeping two. Each of these Cerfas is signed by the seller and the buyer, with the same date as the one on the registration card. It is mandatory to have them for sale.The certificate of non-pledge: this is a document that shows that there is no credit or fine on the car. It is compulsory to have it for sale. The technical control dated less than 6 months if the car is more than 4 years old. Ideally, it should be blank, or at least without any obligation to check-in. If there is a follow-up, the sale can still be done, as long as the buyer is aware of it. It is mandatory to have it for the sale.

In addition to these essential and mandatory documents, certain documents and parts must be given to the buyer at the time of the sale. They allow you to sell your car better, to reassure the buyer, but also to sell at a better price.

The maintenance booklet with the maintenance invoices: this is not mandatory for sale under the law, but extremely recommended. Duplicate keys: it is not compulsory for sale under the law, but extremely recommended. The owner's manual of the car: for proper maintenance and proper use of the vehicle. It is not compulsory for the sale according to the law, but extremely recommended.

After the purchase of the used vehicle, it is necessary to establish a file for the registration certificate in the month following the sale . The essential documents are the old registration certificate, the transfer certificate, the technical inspection, proof of identity and proof of address.
