Auto brokers act as a middle man. Don't know the cost.

That's known as an open title. Pretty common.Say I buy a bike from Joe Smith, and he fills out the title but leaves the buyers name blank. I decide not to keep the bike, and sell it to Bob Jones. It looks like it was sold directly from Joe Smith to Bob Jones. The alternative is I title it in my name, pay tax and title fee, wait for it to come back, sell it to you. Just an extra step and more $$$ for the DMV.One thing to consider is where you are buying it from. When I bought my Ural, it came from Washington state. When i went to the NC DMV, the gestapo there got excited because the papers weren't notarized. Until it was pointed out to them that Washington is not a notary state. So if it is coming from a notary state, the seller will have to somehow get it notarized.Of greater concern is why is it an open title. Did the seller buy it to resell? Was it in an accident and the seller fixed it up, etc.?When I registered my RE, it was an open title. I filled in my name and took it to the DMV, in a small town. I had a printed photo of the vin #, and had the bike in the trailer. I disarmed the Nazi behind the counter my telling her what a nice looking necklace she had, and how I never saw one like that before. I guess no one compliments these people, because she warmed right up. I was going to ask her if it was the gold medal for the shotput, 1964 Olympics, but restrained myself.The morons were so confused by the Enfield because it wasn't in their books, and wanted me to take it to the DMV headquarters to get an inspector to check it. That's when I produced the printed photo of the vin # and pointed to the trailer out front. I correctly figured that fatty would refrain from lifting her leg that high to get on the trailer, and wasn't comfortable on any trailer that didn't have hay on the floor, so she accepted it as is.Unfortunately, the title and registration shows it as a 2008 ROEN, but I don't care.

I think AO is concerned about sending hard earned cash to a stranger and not receiving said RE. The same would go for me if someone purchased my RE from out of state and wanted me to crate and ship my MC. I would want some guarantees (cash) up front before I shipped my MC off.A third party broker should be able to handle that. Other wise you would have to trust the person over the phone and though the mail.
I gotta change my name on the site quick! From now on, I shall be known as Geoff Baker.
And from now on, I will always use the alias Rick Sperko when applying for title to the DMV, filing paperwork, robbing banks, that kind of thing.
My Dad's name is Rick Sperko too, so when robbing banks, they will be able to narrow it down to the three of us, but no one will be surprised.-Rick
