Buying a Vehicle in Panama

When you first arrive in Panama, one of the first things you may want to do is locate a vehicle. We assist new residents of Panama in purchasing a used automobile. People seeking a used car with a budget of $10,000 or more are our target market.

The process of finding a reputable dealer, making sure the car is not a write-off rebuild, ensuring no problem with the title, getting the title transferred to your name, getting a current plate, and getting the proper insurance you need is also very important.

We typically purchase all of our vehicles in Panama City, as with 50% of the population of the country living there, there are the most options there. Oscar (our car guru) has a mechanic background, and over the last 8 years has built many relationships with many reputable dealers in Panama City, and has access to a great selection of preowned vehicles. In the last year alone, we have purchased over $250,000 of vehicles for our clients.

The steps are as follows: You hire us for the service and provide us a list of vehicles you like, as well as your demands. Send us links to automobiles for sale from any car sites so that we may view them. Make a note of your preferred color, features, year, maximum mileage; be thorough.

Oscar will go through all of his contacts and prepare a list for you to evaluate, after which you’ll cut it down to a shortlist. Oscar will travel to Panama City and use photographs and live video with you to narrow things down even more.

Your final selections will be test-driven, mechanically inspected, title and tax checked, and price negotiated. Upon your payment directly to the seller, Oscar will get the title transferred, insurance purchased, and drive the vehicle back to you.
