Realtors usually take 6% to sell your house.

What are they going to do for $299? Did you try Google? Did you check the archives here and on HAMB? (I checked and there was nothing)

Had a great experience with Michael at WeBeAutos.com They handled tons of advertising, qualifying the buyer, all the paperwork and walked me through the fund transfer. All for 5% of the selling price.
It took awhile for the right buyer to come along but from serious offer to car paid for and picked up by the sellers hauler was 5 days. Can't say enough good things about their professional, comforting operation. Chap

Yeah, I got a call, I think, from those guys. He had "at least 10 people" ready to buy my car and said I should raise my asking price by $2,000. I said GREAT, sell my car and I'll give you $300 after the sale when the cash is in my hand. He told me it didn't work that way. I told him that's the ONLY way it would work for me. Bye!

Good for you... Tell him to have the buyer call you and they can pay him the $300 for finding the car for them. "I ain't got no deal with you, they do." Chap

So he takes his commission after the sale?! ...that's fair. I'm trying to sell an O/T car - would you recommend them?

Thanks,

The buyer works through WeBeAutos. Mike receives the payment from the buyer, advises seller who then sends Mike a copy of the title. Mike then deducts the 5% and wires the rest of the funds to the seller. The seller sends the signed title overnight mail to the buyer, and a copy of the postal receipt to Mike.
With my sale I had my funds in my bank and the hauler showed up the day my title was suppose to be delivered to the buyer.
Like I say it took awhile to find the right buyer, but the no-hassle sale was worth it.
You can send all your photos to Mike and a narrative about the car. Mike will help fine tune it, contact you for approval of the ad and post it on, I believe 80 sites. 5% is cheaper than placing a few decent ads, and someone else filtering buyers and handling the transaction is priceless. Chap

I see they are out of NY. Not sure about trusting a New Yorker, but...

Thanks for this info - think I'll contact him.
