Any good contracts for purchase of a used rig that must be shipped?
Posted 05 January 2013 - 01:06 AM
I might have the opportunity to buy a used big rig that's in another state so it must be shipped. Does anyone have a good template for a sales contract to protect us both and make sure legally that shipment will be initiated when payment is received?
Thanks in advance!

Great news man! GO CLASS OF ’10!
Call me paranoid but when I bought my 2nd hand rig, I travelled from Istanbul to New Orleans in order to inspect it with my own eyes – the seller already have sent the rig to the manufacturer and got a “in good condition report” for it – and to bring it to my home myself.
It’s a huge investment financially and mentally to buy your first big rig. I wouldn’t leave it to chance any aspect of the acquiring process. I don’t mean the seller will have bad intentions –it’s an unknown- but just be sure everything involving packaging and shipping will be done according to YOUR standards.
And you cannot beat drinking a couple of beers and exchanging war stories with a fellow operator after you finalized the deal.
But also, even getting there in person, you should prepare a good sales contract for both parties.

It's just another state not another country buy yourself a plane ticket or drive
Check it out, hand the guy a certified check, get a bill of sale and have a few beers then fly
Home w it as extra baggage (same as fed ex)
(Have it insured before u leave by talking to insurance co before u leave)

If you're doing all the manufacturer stuff do it first then hand check and go home w rig
No seller wants more work and worry after they have their money
Besides how do u get ure money back if the manufacturer says something bad?
