Hey guys I have a question pertaining to selling one of my cars. I'm here in NY and I'm selling a car to a guy in Maryland. I want to get this all figured out before he flies up here to pick it up so hopefully members from Maryland can help out. Is there any way he can get a temporary registration/ interstate in-transit permit through the Maryland department of vehicles so he can drive the car home from New York? (or whatever the equivalent of the NYS DMV is)
I have all the paperwork set for us to head over to the DMV here but if he can possibly get it in Maryland that would be better. I say this because he would be coming in on a Saturday and our local DMV is only open until 1PM on Saturdays and I can see it now where his flight gets delayed or something and we won't be able to get to the DMV for him to hand in his insurance paperwork for get a NYS in-transit permit. That or there is something either me or him forget and we can't get a in-transit sticker. My last option is to let him drive with my plates and have him mail them back but I'm kind of sketched out doing that because the weather/snow he might be driving through could be real bad at times (lake effect snow) and I don't want him wrecking the car while it's still under my name.
Him being able to bring his own paperwork/tags would make things that much easier and less stressful. If anyone has any other suggestions that would be awesome because I've only sold cars to other New Yorkers so I'm a newb when it comes to this. Hopefully someone from Maryland, that has bought a car through private sale from a different state, can help out with this. Thanks!
