I want to purchase a car from a different state.
Is it possible to purchase a car via CarGurus by cash and
have it delivered? What are my assurances that I won't
get ripped off? It seems some of the better pricing for the
vehicle I want are out of my state. Is there a standard
shipping rate or does it varies by dealers?
I would never purchase a vehicle without inspecting it and driving it. How do you propose you pay cash and then have it delivered? I wouldn't send cash in the mail. Here's what I would do. Contact the dealer before you travel, make sure they have it first and the cost. Then fly or drive out to test drive it and or have a mechanic look at it. Negotiate based on what you find and purchase and drive back to your home state. Then you can get it registered by your local DMV or notary and pay the applicable state sales tax.
