Talking Florida to Pennsylvania

My seller is not into driving to the notary to sign over title to me so I contacted a mobile notary. My plan is to send to the notary a certified check made out to th seller. The mobile notary can collect the signed and notarized title, give the seller the certified check and mail the title to me. Would I then get a plate here and send it down to be put on the trailer before towing?

Any guidance appreciated.
Barry

I could be that you have a certain number of days before you have to get a plate? here in Alabama, I believe it's around 20 days for a car, and your dated bill of sale acts as proof?

just curious, but what type of seller wouldn't even go and visit a notary in an effort to close the deal? I guess everyone is somewhat suspicious these days with all of the 'money order' scams and false ebay postings and such...

are you traveling up to retrieve the airstream or having it delivered?

I think the best are the bogus credit card pages trying to get you to log in to conduct some security check on your account or something. They are so perfectly done except they miss the browser window.

I am doing the AS purchase cautiously and one step at a time. The vintage tactor hauler page is pretty helpful too. That eliminates concerns with running gear.

Regarding types of sellers, in 1969 I bought a Saab 96 v-4 and the salesman delivered it to my house. No doubt I paid too much for it...as in sticker.

Thumbs down do you smell a scam

I would not send a check or any money if he does not want to go to a notery.where did you get the mobile notery from ? hope not from the seller.this deal smells a little strange.If it was me I'd drive down and see this TT then give him the check.

Florida Notarization of Title?

Is notarization required for title transfer in Florida?

I have learned from taking vehicles from Florida to Pennsylvania that if you wait till you get to PA to transfer the title, you will need a notarized bill of sale for Pennsylvania. It would be easier to go to Florida and transfer the paperwork here.

Terry, thank you for your input. I am going to check with my registration place tomorrow and find out exactly what will suffice. But it doesn't seem easier to go to Florida (unless one is going fishing there or to pick up the trailer in person anyway) than just getting the notarized bill of sale. I realize now that the answer begins with the PA DOT.

We did not have to have our title notorized in Florida. The PO signed it and I took it to the DMV the next day and transferred.

The girl I spoke with a week or so ago said I would need a signed Title and a Bill of Sale. This is a fancy office that does lots of title work. Today I went in with those items and I am told I need a tracing also! So this is still on-going and I can not be conclusive about securing title on a vintage trailer from FL to PA.

Hi Barry, Too bad all the hoops you have to jump through.

I've never heard that term before....what's a tracing?

In Ohio I could get a 90 temp tag (plate) with just a bill of sale.

Best of luck geting your baby home,

Steve

Certification by a Mechanic

To make a tracing you would hold a piece of thin paper over the stamped/embossed VIN and scribble across the paper with a pencil and voila the the number on the tracing paper. The same technique is used by people researching grave stones. I offered the girl a hi res image of the ID plate but she refused it but did say a "mechanic" could certify the VIN. Wonder if a PA tranny shop owner would do? Barry Sommers Transmissions Or does it have to be a Florida mechanic?

Again, where in Florida is this trailer?

Okay, does Pensy currently want certified mech, or shop with state MVR number?

The first choice and probably the one I will use is the tracing. The certified mechanic option is if the vin is not tracable. Is Cape Fear a nick name for Cape Canaveral or Cape Kennedy? Guess I am a little outof touch.

Starting in the late 1980's, the spot for the notary was eliminated. So, no matter what year it is, if the trailer has had its title transferred since then it will have the newer title, with no spot for a notary.

I have the plate for the trailer and the temporary regisration in my hand. This time I went to my local friendly notary/plate and title issuer. She was only intersted in the Certificate of Title from Florida signed but of course not notarized. There was no mention of a tracing perhaps because she knows me and trusts that there is such a trailer in existance. So as far as a plate is concerned she is good to go. Axle issue over on the axle area of this forum may not go so easily.
