Rat Rods For Sale - Tips For Buying A Car At Ebay Motors

Feb 13, 2008
For some of us, there is no better remedy than buying ourselves a hot rod, rat rod or classic car as a way to resolve a mid-life crisis. You may find some real bargains out there if you look long enough. Remember, "one man trash is another mans treasure". In my opinion, the best place for true bargain hot rod or rat rod for sale is at eBay Motors. However, like any automobile purchase, you need to do a little extra homework before placing that winning bid on your new hot rod or rat rod.

Therefore, to help you make a wise purchase decision, and put you in the seat of the hot rod of your dreams, I offer up these tips:

Read The Auction Listing

This seems obvious, but, all too often, it is easy to get excited about a listing and then miss the fine print in a listing which may disclose additional terms or mechanical defects. A vehicle history report can uncover title problems, odometer tampering, and prior damage to the vehicle. Also, don't be shy about contacting the seller and asking him/her questions regarding the history and condition of the vehicle. If the seller seems unwilling to give you straight-up answers, find another seller.

Call Your Insurance Agent

Sometimes insurance companies have special premium provisions for some classic cars or hot rods. So it's best to find out how much your rat rod will cost to ensure before you spend your hard-earned money. Also, there are a number of insurance companies which specialize in insuring vehicles considered classic cars or hot rods. Since most of these types of vehicles are secondary transportation and not used as a commuting vehicle, they are classified as having lower risk, and thus, can carry a far lower insurance premium.

Taking Delivery

For instance, you found this dealer with a number of terrific hot rods for sale in Texas. However, you live in Florida. To take delivery, you'll have to travel to Texas pick up the car yourself. Better yet, you can make arrangements with a car transport company to deliver the car to you. Just be sure and get a number of quotes before signing a delivery contract.

As I stated previously, there are some real good bargains to be had on eBay Motors. Just make sure you have done your homework so you may enjoy your new hot rod or rat rod for many years to come.
