Maybe you’ve dreamed about owning a luxury car your whole life or maybe you’re moving from
the UK to South Africa and simply can’t part with your beloved car. Whatever the reason, you’ll
need to hire a Car Export Company to assist you with the process.
But how do you know that the company you hire isn’t a fraud that will steal your hard earned
money? Before you sign on the dotted line, there are some things to consider.
Do they have an online presence?
In recent years it has become a little bit of a trend to import used and luxury cars from the UK
and many car exporters have secured their place in the market. However, the higher demand
has also developed a platform for fraudsters to scam innocent people wanting to import
If the vehicle exporter has an online presence, it makes it easier to distinguish the scammers
from the real companies. A quick google search will also give you a good idea if the company
you’re hiring has a bad reputation. Make sure you do thorough research before you sign any
contract, ask for references and make contact with them.
How to stay safe from scammers.
Keep your eyes and ears open and thoroughly investigate the vehicle export company. Never
make payments via any other means than direct bank transfers into the company’s bank
If a deal is too good to be true, it probably isn’t true. You might get excited about unbelievable
prices and deals but be careful that it isn’t a trap.
