I’m becoming increasingly interested in a car being offered in Ohio by a private party. Only problem is, I’m in New Jersey.

Have any of you dealt with something like this? I’m trying to understand how this would work without multiple trips out there.

Acquiring the car: get a PPI, send a check or wire, and have him send the title somehow? Escrow?

Getting the car back: shipping? Take a plane?

I can’t go get the title in person without a dedicated trip for that, because I’d need the title in NJ to get plates...

Basically, is there a way to do it that makes any sense?
