Floating Transfer Bike Sale- Any Experience with This Method?

Discussion in 'General Discussion / News / Information' started by Billy Baht, Aug 19, 2013.

  1. Has any poster had experience with changing bike registration with the "Floating Transfer" การโอนลอย (Gan on loy) method?

    I've googled it and it seems that I must go to the DLT and apply to have the bike "Ready to transfer" then any new buyer can put it in his name. But, I'm thinking what if the guy doesn't show? Or shows up with several of his buddies (Wants me to deliver the bike to BKK)

    I told the guy we can do it with Transfer and Power of Attorney forms but he seems reluctant. Supposedly only has Sunday off, when the DLT offices are closed.

    I think I'm passing on this prospective buyer but maybe I'm thinking too much.

    Any thoughts?
  2. Hi
    I think the smart thing to do is to walk away and wait for a "proper" buyer..
  3. Simply let him transfer the full amount of the money to your bank account.
    Then AFTER receiving the money send the bike Bangkok by mail.
    Then send separately the paper-work.
  4. Turned out to be a moot point- another fellow showed up with the cash and we just completed the exchange at Pattaya DLT :)
