What to Do Before You Pay for This Car

All these 300k tokunbo vehicles are what a lot of people are buying now since car prices have skyrocketed. However, there are some important things every buyer should know before you make payment.

1. The seller should have an ID

If the seller does not have an identity, don’t buy from them, even if your friend introduced you to the person. That’ll be buying from a random person, and you won’t have anyone to hold responsible if something goes wrong. For example, if it’s a stolen vehicle, you don’t have someone to hold for your money back.

2. Use a good mechanic for pre-purchase inspection of the car

Maybe you have owned cars in the past, and think your knowledge about cars is enough. Don’t try that, especially for a car that you are buying with just 300,000 naira. Get a mechanic—should be someone you trust. Don’t use the seller’s mechanic because they won’t say, “It’s bad, don’t buy.” A mechanic will know where to look, including checking for rust under the vehicle or inspecting the paint to know if there are any fillers used.

3. Inspect the vehicle papers

You are going to ask the seller to give you the custom papers, and all documents should be intact. As for the title, if it does not show the name of the seller, don’t buy. Tell the seller to bring the original owner who will sign over the title, else, you won’t be able to register it.

You’re going to check the VIN/chassis number written or inscribed on the windshield. It can also be under the engine hood and side of the door. If the information from the VIN does not match the information on the title or what the seller claims, don’t buy the car.

4. Don’t just buy without trying to negotiate

It’s a 300k car but that doesn’t mean the price can’t be reduced, especially if the car is not looking very clean.

You can also negotiate the cost of processing your change of ownership and registration fees alongside the cost of the car. Changing ownership, including the price of number plates are expensive now, so you have to include this in your bargain.

5. Register this car in your name

After you pay for this car, you’ll sign an agreement with the seller and get a purchase receipt to show that you legally acquired this car. But note that this car is not yet your own until you have registered it in your state. You’ll also need this receipt during the registration.

If you’re in Lagos, for example, you’ll contact the MVAA (Motor Vehicle Administration Agency) for your vehicle registration.
