Safety Advice - Buying & Selling Cars using the PMW Platform

Safety when selling a vehicle

Never leave a potential buyer alone with your vehicle.

Do not give them the keys to your car or let them borrow any of your documentation. If you have a keyless fob for your car, we advise you keep hold of it and not to hand it over to anyone until the sale transaction has been completed. This includes on a test drive.

Always accompany potential buyers if you let them have a test drive and ensure that you supervise any inspection they make of your vehicle.

It is good practice to ask any potential buyers to bring their driving licence along with them, especially if they want to test drive your car.

If you allow anyone to test drive your car and they are not licenced to drive you are also comitting an offence.

Precautions when buying a vehicle

Never send money to someone for a vehicle that you have not seen.
