Answers from the Automotive Experts

Barbra Einsohn , Customer Relations Manager  at David McDavid Honda of Irving Tillie, Thank you for your inquiry. You are very wise not to give out your personal information and I commend you for thinking ahead and protecting yourself. My recommendation is to use your cell number only. If you have your name and number on your cell recorded message, make sure to have your first name only. Don

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Tillie, You don*t really need to disclose any personal contact information up front. You just need a way for folks to who are interested in purchasing your car be able to get in touch with you. A work number, or a phone number for them to leave you a message with their contact information would suffice. Once you sell the vehicle, you will have to give the new owner a bill of sale and sign over the title, which will require your name name and address.

Susan Givens, Publisher at Auto Success Magazine - System Publishing , Inc. Hi Tillie, You are not the only one that does not want to share their personal info. A lot of sites will send a potential buyer to you. They type in their contact information and you contact them. Good luck! Susan
