Lastly, there is nothing wrong with dreaming big but in today’s economy you must be cautious. If you are a start-up company, don’t over extend yourself right out the gates. Find a used limo for sale that fits your budget and doesn’t put added pressure on your bank account.
ALWAYS INSPECT YOUR VEHICLE
It is imperative to properly inspect any used limousine for sale. Never rely on pictures from the internet to tell you the tale. Ask the seller to provide you with recent photos. These photos should include pictures of the speedometer, door jams, trunk, engine, driver’s compartment, passenger’s compartment and under carriage. A motivated seller will have these pictures readily available and should send immediately. If you like what you see, your next step should be to arrange a meeting with the seller to inspect the vehicle.
TITLE CHECK AND HISTORY
The internet makes life easy when it comes to simple back ground checks. Be sure to run a car fax on the limo you are considering. Always request a copy of the title and ask the seller regarding any liens the vehicle may have. It is common for a bank or leasing company to hold the title for 1-2 weeks before releasing their collateral. Nowadays, fraud is something to cautious of.
GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING
Always be sure to get your agreements in writing. Be sure all warranties, VIN numbers, details and final sale prices are listed on the Bill-of-sale. A limo for sale is a big purchase and should be treated as such. Never leave a deposit or final payment without something signed.
BE A GOOD SELLER
If you are trying to sell a used limo, be prepared for lots of questions and tire kickers. It’s common and should be expected. Treat all inquiries as if they are important potential buyers. Take as many photos as you can and keep them readily available to send out as a moments notice. If you have a limo for sale, be sure to fix all of its imperfections before you list it. Even though it’s a used limo, take the time required to make it presentable.
