Under $100 – 10 Most Romantic Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Car Lover

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 29, 2020

I read somewhere that women really aren’t interested in Valentine’s Day gifts that are selected from a store’s automotive isle. Really? I don’t know why the writer (female) would have even thought that, much less published it. As an owner of a turbo 6-shift, I can tell you emphatically that I would love it and don’t really appreciate her “selling me short” and on top of it underestimating women. So we’re offering up gifts for her and him. Here’s our list of suggested most romantic gifts for your car enthusiast lady, and they’re even perfect for that special guy in your life. If you’re strapped for cash and “sell my car” has been rattling around in your head for a while, we buy cars fast, safe, and easy. You can see how it works and get your high instant cash offer in as little as 20-seconds right now. Then you can sell your car quick; or your truck, van, or SUV in just a few days.

Gifts For Her and Him

Diagnostic Scan Tool

I cannot stress enough how valuable this would have been to me as a single mom over the years. Questioning mechanic friends, then thankfully Google was my go-to for “what is wrong with my; 1991 Chevy S-10, 1986 Chevy Z24, 1994 Saturn, 2008 Ford Escape, beat up Toyota Corolla (year?), 2001 Pontiac Bonneville, 1996 Saturn SL, 2003 Cadillac something or another”, and the list goes on. My point is, there are a ton of single moms and dads out there struggling day-to-day and living paycheck-to-paycheck doing the same thing I did driving down the road, “I need another car, and that one will do.” I didn’t have the luxury of being picky and looked for “it’ll do cars”. Except for that Z24. I found it at a used car lot and when the test drive turned into burning a little rubber pulling out onto the road, it turned into sold. That’s because I’m a fast car chick. My point is, a diagnostic scan tool would be an AWESOME gift.

Mechanics Tool Set

This is another great Valentine’s Day gift. Give a man a set of tools and he’s probably going to be a happy camper; but give a set to a woman who never has the right tool for her car, score big points. Just don’t forget she’s probably going to want something sweet too.

Car Wash Kit

This is a perfect gift for her and him! The reason is obvious. Car gals and guys want the vehicles to sparkle.

Headlight Restoration Kit

Who’s with me on this one? It’s a no brainer. She’ll love it and so will he, and you can pick one up at Walmart, Target, Auto Zone, NAPA, and plenty of other stores. A.K.A. easy to find. (Disclosure: we are not affiliated with the mentioned stores.)

Jump Starter

I have one of these and I love it! You never know when the battery is going to drain and leave you stranded. I just replaced my 4-year old 6-year warranty battery and I was extremely happy I had my jump starter.

Backup Camera

This? I want one. Accident-free is the goal and a backup camera can help prevent one.

Portable Vacuum

Saves a trip to the local carwash or dragging the house vacuum outside; we’ve all gotten mad at that house vacuum. It’s not user friendly for a car.

Just a reminder… we buy cars in every Continental U.S. state. See how it works and get your instant cash offer now in time for that Valentine’s Day gift.

Car Detailing

Give your sweetheart a gift card or certificate to get their baby pampered. It’ll feel like new to them!

Car Cover

Whether it’s a collector, sport, luxury, or the everyday car, truck, van, of SUV, this is a great gift if your car enthusiast wants to keep their vehicle free from elements in the air.

Radar Detector

I’ve had the opportunity to tell a few friendly cops – joking around of course… not really – “If you see this car go by, just wave.”

Though when I hit the highway heading up to upstate NY, down to Savannah, up to Ohio or Myrtle Beach, this little puppy would come in handy. I still don’t understand why I’ve never been pulled over. It’s a sporty car and the state troopers were gunning every time. “Knock. On. Wood.” It’s on my shopping list and will be in the car before the middle of March.

Give the Utmost, Ultimate, Over the Top Racing Thrill with a Racecar School or an Exotic Car Experience Oh boy. Want a new BFF? I keep saying I’m going to hit one of the tracks and do this. This is a thrilling thought. If she drives fast. If he drives fast. Or, they want to.

Fantastic gift.

Big points for you on this unique out of the box gift. And, the memories! Score!

Wrapping the Valentine’s Day Gift Guide Up

Do you see that pun? I’m so happy I ran across that woman’s article in my research for cool and unique Valentine’s Day gifts. Otherwise, this may have been all about what men want. There’s nothing wrong with that, but I almost fell into the same old traditional way of thinking if I hadn’t and I would have missed the mark. Shame on me; I know better. I’m a cool woman. Not an arrogant thing; it’s a confidence thing. Big difference. So, I hope Car Buyer USA has jumpstarted (I’m on a roll with the puns today!) your brain’s logical spot. Our gift guide with suggested most romantic gifts for your car enthusiast lady and that special guy in your life has great ideas. And, like I said above, if you’re strapped for cash and “sell my car” has been rattling around in your head for a while – or a light bulb just went off in your head – we buy cars fast, safe, and easy every day in every Continental U.S. state. You can see how it works and get your high instant cash offer right now. Then, ask us if we can come to you for the inspection and put money in your hands before you sign over the title. What are you waiting for? Sell your car quick today.

How to Locate and Process an Estate Car Title After a Death

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Even in the simplest of content, nearly every estate involves a car, truck, van, or SUV. Many times an estate includes a vehicle that is paid off and a beneficiary is named in the will. When this happens additional documentation is required for the person named to claim the asset. Prior to deciding to sell, keep, or donate an estate vehicle, the first thing a person needs is the car title to legally transfer ownership. How to locate and process an estate car title after death can be a headache, or if lucky, a simple one. If you want to wait and you are interested in finding out the value of your inherited vehicle, get started with an instant cash offer now.

The Title

Once the legal owner is deceased, not having a valid car title results in a stall and you cannot register the vehicle, sell your car, or drive the car. A valid car, truck, van, or SUV – or any automobile – title must be presented to the local Department of Motor Vehicles along with other documentation, such as the death certificate and paperwork showing the new owner has a legal claim, to transfer ownership.

    “No one should drive a deceased person's vehicle until the Probate Court issues an order transferring the vehicle to that individual and the vehicle is then titled and insured to that individual. The estate and driver are both potentially liable and will be sued if an accident takes place. You may also be liable to the estate for a diminution in value claim if the vehicle is worth less due to your driving it and you eventually do not receive the vehicle as part of your distributive share.” ~estate planning attorney

Locating the title

If the title is not in the vehicle’s console or glove compartment – which hopefully it is not because the car title should never be stored inside the vehicle in case it is stolen – starts with searching all properties of the deceased owner. If you would like to sell your car quick and get help through the process of an estate vehicle, we buy cars and help you sell yours. Get a high instant cash offer in as little as 20-seconds now.


  • First, check all obvious places.
  • Leave no stone unturned in the vehicle.
  • Expand your search.
  • Check every place, area, location, and every nook and cranny,

Has the title been processed?

When you sell your car from an estate, a relatively easy process can get complicated if the title has not been processed; especially if it is a collector car. During World War II and the Great Depression, most times cars were purchased most times with cash, so depending on if the deceased had titled and registered it, there may not be a title for the estate vehicle. If this is the case, or if you are not sure if there is a legal title exists, contact the local Department of Motor Vehicles to inquire on what needs to be done. If you have the VIN number you can possibly run the number on DMV’s website, or run a CarFax report.

When There Is No Title – What To Do

If you are unsuccessful in locating a legal title, you will need to contact the local DMV to find out what needs to be done and what documentation is required to acquire one and legally register the estate vehicle transferring ownership over.

  • If you do not have a registration card for the vehicle, write down the VIN to take with you to DMV.
  • You will need a notarized copy of the will or the court-issued document showing you are the vehicle’s legal heir.
  • Death verification document or a death certificate must be presented to DMV.
  • A valid government issued photo I.D.
  • Credit card or cash for the fees.

Transfer Deceased Ownership Over to a New Owner after a Death

It is pretty much the same as mentioned above. What you will need:

  • Title
  • Death verification document or a death certificate must be presented to DMV.
  • A valid government issued photo I.D.
  • You will need a notarized copy of the will or the court-issued document showing you are the vehicle’s legal heir.
  • Credit card or cash for the fees.

Like we mentioned above, even in the simplest of content, nearly every estate involves a car, truck, van, or SUV. Many times an estate includes a vehicle that is paid off and a beneficiary is named in the will. When this happens, additional documentation will definitely be required by the beneficiary to claim the asset. To avoid issues, it is a good idea to be proactive and secure all paperwork needed prior to selling, keeping, or when donating an estate vehicle. The new owner must apply for a new title to legally transfer ownership. How to locate and process an estate car title after death can be a headache and take some time. If you need any help and you want to sell your car quick you inherited, give us a call. We buy cars fast, safe, and easy in every Continental U.S. state 24/7. You can get a high instant cash offer in as little as 20-seconds; when we agree on a quote there can be cash in your bank in a few days or less. If the vehicle is a classic, give us a call to let us prove we give you the highest offer you will find.

Can I Sell My Car If the Title Is Not In My Name?

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 14, 2020

Your mom buys you a 2010 Honda CR-V LX for graduating high school to send you off to college with and you love it! You’ve gotten your Master’s Degree and you’re now working at your dream job. You pull into your law office’s parking garage and suddenly you notice all the luxury cars surrounding you. You pat “old dependable” on the steering wheel and say, “You know I love you, and we’ve been good together; but it’s time for us to part sweetheart.” Then it dawns on you that your mom is still paying the insurance on the car and legally owns it. Your next thought? “Can I sell my car quick if the title is not in my name?”

How Do You Buy a Used Car from a Deceased Person's Estate?

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 10, 2020

How do you buy a car that belonged to a deceased person? Are the “rules” that may differ from a traditional used car ownership transfer? Purchasing a vehicle from a deceased person’s estate sale does not differ much from buying any other used car. Conveniently, for the purchaser most of the work lies with the executor of the estate whose job it is to ensure the sale and transfer of ownership is legal. The same laws apply in an estate transaction as it does when you buy a vehicle from any private seller, or a used car dealership. The buyer is required to pay sales tax, if applicable according to your state laws – check with your local Department of Motor Vehicles on your specific requirements. A sales receipt may be required along with any other paperwork found at DMV.

What Should the Buyer Do When Purchasing a Car from a Deceased Person’s Estate Sale?

Inspect the Car

When a car sits for an extended period of time, as can happen with an estate sale, it can develop mechanical problems requiring repairs. Not only should the buyer take the time to inspect the vehicle, but they should also consider taking an automotive specialist along or request to take the car to one for inspection. On the surface the purchaser may be able to see any obvious damages, but without the knowledge of an experienced mechanic, internal issues may be missed by a non-mechanical buyer. If mechanical issues are present, it may be possible to negotiate the asking price down.

Has the Vehicle Been Cleared By Probate Court - Is the Sale Is Legal?

If probate court has approved the vehicle to be sold prior to it clearing the estate, the executor will be able to present documentation as “right to sale proof “. It is imperative to confirm the seller is authorized to sell the car. Ask to see proof he/she can legally sell items from the estate. The documentation should include:

  • Probate Court Order
  • Death Certificate
  • Personal Identification

It is also recommended the buyer inquire with the probate court the documentation is legitimate and the executor has the court’s approval to sell assets from an estate sale.

NOTE: Be sure to keep a copy of the death certificate to present to DMV when transferring the title to new ownership.

Find out how it works and get a high instant cash offer in as little as 20-seconds. We will buy your vehicle and get cash in your bank in about two days.


Examine and Compare the Title with Existing Paperwork

Prior to a final purchase:

  • Confirm the vehicle was legally owned by the decedent.
  • Verify the car’s VIN (vehicle identification number) located in the lower portion of the windshield on the driver’s side matches the VIN present on the vehicle title.
  • Compare the name and address matches on both the death certificate and the title of registration.
  • Check the same information matches on all other documentation (if applicable).
  • If any information does not match contact the police or a lawyer before proceeding with a purchase.

Title Transfer

Once everything has been reviewed and verified the last steps are easy.

  • The executor signature and the sale date go the back of the title – be sure it is in the correct boxes and all other information required by the seller is properly entered.
  • Give the executor the money for the vehicle.
  • Take the title to the local Department of Motor Vehicles or the local tax assessor’s office – confirm with proper procedures with DMV.
  • Confirm if insurance coverage is required prior to obtaining the title in the seller’s name.
  • Inquire if other requirements exist by the local DMV or tax assessor’s office.
  • Confirm all fees required with the local DMV or tax assessor’s office.
