In Pennsylvania you have 30 days to transfer tags from one vehicle to another, so keep your old tags for the new one. Check Alabama, this may give you a little more time.

And is it 20 days from pickup or when you cross Alabama state line? Then, what if any penalty might appply? I wouldn't want to limit my trip solely based on DMV rules.

We just bought a used vehicle in the Lower Mainland a few months ago. The Toyota dealer took a few thousand on credit card and the remainder of the payment by personal cheque. Like a previous poster mentioned they have your DL number, the VIN number and the vehicle has been registered in your name on site so they can recover the asset if needed. I guess it becomes a business decision comparing the payment default risk versus the ease of completing the financial transaction for the customer.

We use Interac e-Transfer all the time and it is great. The only draw back is that it is limited to your bank card daily transaction limits. We keep our withdrawal limits low because we rarely use cash. We would be forced to make transactions over multiple days to transfer a larger sum of money.

If taking cash (that's not directly from the bank), be sure to use one of those counterfeiting detection pens on it. Granted, they won't work if the fake money was make with real money. You can get these pens at Office Depot and similar places. I've never had to use them on Canadian money, though. We used them all the time at a store I worked at for any larger bills.

The OP said he couldn't tell a real from a fake $100 bill (or words to that effect). Go to a bank and I'm sure they'd be willing to show you all the things to look for. Especially if you're withdrawing that $100 bill!

Good luck!

Hi: NW Cat Owner... With US dollar bills of any denomination the ink never dries. Smudge them on a clean white sheet of paper to test them!!! Alf

I've sold quite a few valuable items... and i really do prefer cash, handed by the buyer to the bank teller, at MY BANK, and it gets deposited, and we are done.

least risk.

revised plan:

if buyer sees Casita and wants it, then I say OK meet me at my bank in 30 minutes and I'll be inside. Casita parked outside.

pay me, and then we hook up to you. then you drive off.

if they wanted i could even be unhooked, with my big secure yellow Trimax wheel clamp lock on, and hand him the wheel lock key as he or she pays the teller.

PayPal leads to considerable fees.
