Selling car, help needed

Travel Forums Africa and The Middle East Selling car, help needed

Hello there,

I am planning a cartrip next summer from the Netherlands heading south, direction atleast Marocco. I want to sell my car wherever I arrive after five weeks (hopefully Marocco and southward direction Western-sahara, Mauritania, etc.). I am not very experienced with celling cars, in fact I know nothing. I have three questions:

1. What is the best way of celling a car as fast as possible somewhere outside your homecountry, is it in the first place possible?

2. How does it work with formalities like carpapers and registration? I don't want to pay for fines someone brings up with my car somewhere in Africa.

3. Is it possible to not registrate my car in my own country when I immidiately leave the country?

Any reply and information regarding this (difficult) issue is very much appreciated. Thanks

Have a look at this site

There is lots of information about driving yourself to Western African countries.

Cheers, Michael.

Hey Michael, bedankt kerel;). Very useful website of a few guys who did several trips through west Africa from Europe by car. They must be able to give me the right info. Thanks again.
Cheers. Wouter.

Graag gedaan Wouter;)
By the way, a nice book to read before you leave is 'Mijn mercedes is (niet) te koop' van Jeroen Bergeijk.
Cheers, Michael.
