SELL a US car in Peru to a foreigner

Postby verolm » Fri Jan 19, 2018 9:14 am

Hi! We need to sell an US licence car in Peru. It is a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500.
We have been told that it can´t be imported to Peru so our only chance would be to sell it to a foreigner travelling out of Peru right? Does anyone know how this works?
Thank you very much!!
Veronica

you cannot import a car older than 5 yrs to Peru. When the car is in US why not sell it in US?! Just put it onto the local car sales page.

So it is imported to Peru? It has ingreso temporal? Or is it waiting in some customs warehouse to be cleared?

Then you either have to bribe the customs to somehow get it out, or you must bring the car back to US or bring it to another country. I doubt a foreigner will buy a car in this situation. If someone goes back to US he will rather buy a car in US, it will be cheaper and less trouble than buying a car in unclear situation in Peru. Why buy a trouble?

Those cars use to much gas and road tax will be too high.

You neither will get a lot of money for a 19 year old banger.
The easiest way to get rid of it is too bring it too someone who buys scrap metal.
They buy metal per kg.

Why are y'all calling it a car?
It's a truck.
Maybe someone with a hauling business or a farmer could use it.

In any case if you do not clear it from customs, you will see a customs official driving your car here in Lima after a while... they will find a way for themselves believe me.
