Anyone sell their car to the US and ship it? Got questions.

Someone from New Jersey wants to buy my car. I obviously have my concerns about doing this, since there's so many things that can go wrong. To add to this I know nothing about the purchaser (no forum history or anything). I have 3 main questions;

1) Whats the best way to receive payment so I dont get screwed in case he tries to scam me (claiming he didnt receive the car or something). I know PayPal has a certain type of insurance, but the 3% rate might kill the deal since it will be fairly high on $10k. What about a service like MoneyGram? I use that to send money to family in Europe, but is it safe with this type of transaction?

2) I told the buyer that he's responsible for finding a shipping company and any accompanying insurance coverage, that I'd just drive it to the site and drop it off. Am I at all responsible for how the car is shipped (in case it gets damaged during shipping)? Is there anything in particular I should do to cover myself? Take pictures? Fill out any particular paperwork?

3) Anyone have successfully done this? What company did you use that you can recommend? Any company I should stay away from?

...any further insight into this would be greatly appreciated!! I'm getting ridiculously low offers locally (not surprisingly lol), so I'm forced to consider this option.

Well, the "risk" is what I'm trying to avoid by covering my basis, so I can ensure its a risk-free transaction.

I see it being done on forums all the time, just wanted some advise from someone who has actually done it.

3% on paypal is $300. Hardly a deal breaker for a safe transaction.

Yea thats definitely true..

I just came up with another question. The car is originally a US car (it was imported into Canada a few years ago). Do I have to re-import it back to the US?
I have a feeling I dont need to worry about any of that, can I just drive it there on temporary plates and have it shipped?

paypal as a seller is the worst. make him wire it to you or money gram/western union. there's no 'insurance' from paypal. Paypal now gives 6 months for the buyer to complain and do a reversal (on my Canadian account anyways).
