I have recently had the very pleasant experience of purchasing a late model used car through the virtual service offered by Russ at WheelsCR.
I whole-heartedly endorse and recommend the use of his services, if you are in the market for a vehicle here in Costa Rica, and not immediately familiar with:
- How to access the vehicle market
- How to go about purchasing a vehicle.
- How does the ownership transfer work
- And how to receive the vehicle
We live in Guanacaste, did not find it easy to travel to the San Jose area where a far greater number of vehicles are on the market. We provided Russ our parameters (vehicle features (4WD/AWD, preferably 7-pax SUV, diesel-powered), age-range, price range, and delivery to us in Guanacaste.
We did not specify a particular vehicle or model, but instead invited his service to locate candidate vehicles for our consideration. Within 2-days, Russ provided us with seven candidate vehicles, ranging in manufacturers, models, mileages, prices, and sent multiple photographs and extensive descriptions of each of the vehicles.
We found a vehicle in that group that perfectly met our aspirations, and made arrangements with him to purchase the vehicle, sight unseen, to be delivered to us. Less than one week later a superior vehicle arrived at our address in Guanacaste!
The transfer of ownership was fully redacted, and is being processed in the National Registry. For us, this was a highly seamless, stress-free transaction. We probably have the language and knowledge skills to have done this ourselves, but, based on our experience, I would elect do this again with Russ and his company WheelsCR. I have NO hesitation or reluctance to recommend the use of WheelsCR if you are in the market for a vehicle here in Costa Rica!
