It was a breeze. It was easier than buying a car in person.

Be patient. It takes time to get the transactions processed. Do not expect to have your car in 2 weeks. Do your research, stay in contact with TCV they will take care of you. I love my new ride They did a good job making sure I got it. The auction sheet was spot on for the car. Got a great deal on a dream ride. Highly recommend working with TCV to get a great deal on a Japanese import. Thank you
