It is possible to successfully purchase a Rolls Royce, or any other vehicle, without seeing it in person if the purchaser can obtain information, such as numerous detailed photos of the car and a full vehicle history. While these help improve the odds of avoiding issues, they are not guarantees.
The Internet allows many people to easily purchase vehicles without ever being able to see them in person, thanks to online marketplaces, such as eBay. These types of websites are frequently used to sell both standard and collectible cars to dealers and interested parties. When buying a car sight unseen, the first thing to do is investigate the person or entity selling the vehicle.
For example, eBay allows users to rate their experiences with a seller and include any feedback on positive or negative occurrences. If a seller has a poor rating or numerous complaints about fraudulent or dishonest claims it is inadvisable to purchase a car from him. These sites also allow sellers to post pictures and videos of the items being sold. If someone is selling a Rolls Royce and posts numerous detailed pictures, it helps to gain an accurate sense of the quality and condition of the car.
