Default Re: Selling your motorcycle -- Checklist for a seller

OK here's another horror story,

- One of my friend sold his vehicle (4 wheeler) to a second hand car dealer. The vehicle was not transferred as it was given to a dealer (common but big mistake)

- The dealer sold the vehicle to person X.

- Smart person X did not transfer the vehicle and the dealer did not bother to intervene.

- The vehicle had a huge accident after 4 months killing the opp vehicle's driver. The family of the driver claims / files accident in court.

- The court sends the notice to original owner (my friend the seller) named in the RC book.

- My friend has to attend the court proceedings on every hearing since 2012 even though he had the delivery note (but it was not stamped and signed in front of a notary hence the court is giving them a hard time, the signed forms 28/29/30 and the delivery note is the only savior but the hassles of going to court is too much stressful)

- Insurance company denying the third party claim on account of sale but no transfer hence void basis

- Person X agrees to do out of court settlement with the deceased's family, after much deliberation and unjust fights with my friend. The harassment what my friend has gone through is too much of a dreadful story.

Moral of the story - Get the delivery note on a stamped paper in front of a notary (hardly it costs a couple of hundred rupees and 30 mins of time)

I am planing to sell off my bike as it is not getting used at all now a days.

Any reputed dealer whom I can trust with regarding the paper works? I wont mind selling it off with 5K lesser amount, but piece of mind is what I want.

Do market places like Droom or Credr helps in paper works too? Any recommendation of any secondhand 2 wheeler dealer in Pune?

I am planning to sell my bike to TVS dealer (its a TVS bike) but he is only giving original RTO delivery note signed and putting dealer seal. I am not sure if this is enough ? how should I proceed here ?

IIRC, I also had received only the original RTO delivery note with dealer stamp and sign when I exchanged my Wego for an Apache in 2013.

However, what I did additionally was take photo copies of all RTO forms that I had to sign and got the dealer's stamp and sign on them too (with a brief text on them, something like "Received from Mr.XXXX YYYY on dd.mm.yyyy").

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Vikram

Thanks for sharing!

I also check whether the transfer of the vehicle has been completed by sending a text 'VAHAN GJ01AA000X' (where GJ01AA000X is registration number) to 7738299899. It will send back the owner details of the vehicle.

Thanks Vikram, but is that sufficient (technically) ?

Sorry, no idea at all. It was just something I did on the spur of the moment, as an additional step to CMA (cover my ***).

Cheers,
