I went through the motions of trying to sell my car with a local “we buy any car.com” company. I know, I get less money, but in theory, they take care of all the paperwork and make it easy, right?
Hmm. It turns out I’m missing *1* piece of paper, which is not really required, as without it, I could not get the other papers I have, but they insist. Why? Because that’s what it says on their forms. And then I got so annoyed with them insisting on this, and telling to go to the traffic ministry to get it, that I told them to cancel the sale.
Upon which they said they can’t, of course. Well, I can.
I also took the motorhome I had my eye on for a test drive. It’s a lot noisier than my car! But that’s to be expected. It’s a nice drive, but I’m concerned about the van’s age and plenty of signs of rust on the exhaust, undercarriage and supporting legs. I’m not sure now about this van.
Also, I need to consider if I’m putting this in my brother’s name, or transfering my local NIE registration to a friend’s address (as I won’t technically have an address) and all that jazz.
So yes, June is looming but now that I’ve made the decision to not rush into the motorhome, and pushing my car for a quick sale, I feel much better. With the help of my friend Ruben here in Castelldefels we’re going to list the car online and I’ve also contacted a UK company that specialises in buying Spanish cars. At the very least I’ll get a couple of grand extra, which can go towards the motorhome costs.
Two steps forward, one step back!
