Tips for Sellers

Tips for Sellers:

Prepare your rig for sale.  Clean it, take photos, locate all the paperwork and set a price.  AIR is not an auction site (like e-bay) but rather a more traditional, fixed price sales venue.  When you post your ad have a clear idea of the price you want.  If you are selling your item through an auction elsewhere, please do not list it in our classifieds.  Your ad should describe all the features and condition of your rig accurately.

Check your messages.  Prospective buyer can contact you in a variety of ways. AIR ads have an option for comments and you will need to log in and check these often.  You may also receive e-mail inquiries through our forum. Your e-mail address is kept private during this initial contact but if you respond to that e-mail the prospective buyer will then be able to see your e-mail address.

Complete the sale. Have a proper bill of sale ready.  Understand your own States laws regarding the transfer of a vehicle to another State if that is involved. Do not give possession of your rig to the buyer until you have secured funds or cash in hand. Bank Wire Transfers, Cashiers Checks are both common ways to exchange funds for goods. If you take a personal check, you should allow it to clear the banking system and have verification from your bank that the funds are actually in your account, before you give the buyer possession. If the seller is arranging financing, make sure that that is done on a provisional basis before he travels to see you rig. Do not be talked into letting him return to his home state with your rig, until you really have the money. Make sure your buyer knows that s/he must pay before getting the the rig.

Avoid fraud.  Be aware that there are unscrupulous folks out there. Avoid any interaction that seems odd to you or ‘feels’ wrong.  Inquiries from oversees buyers, buyers ‘agents’ and other non-traditional approaches should be treated with extreme caution.
