I'm leaving France and need to get rid of my car, a 1997 Renault Megane with 171000 km.Unfortunately, just yesterday, a problem developed, and the car barely moves when going uphill.I'll take what I can get, but since it will be hard just to find a buyer, can someone recommend a garage or even a junk yard that would buy it?Thanks for your help.Sorry for the double post, but it's urgent.
Hi were finally moving this weekend into the 6th District and are looking for places to keep our two cars. Ive just been on this website where an unlimited ticket costs around €150. Does anyone use this service and is this price for a year as it sounds pretty reasonable for Lyon. Thanks for any help.
Hi we are taking my parents on a summer holiday this year to the Alps and as there will be 7 of us we need to hire either a 7 seater or an extra car. Does anyone know a cheap place to rent one? I think i can remember there was an initiative for the residents of Lyon to rent cars but i can't find details anywhere on the net. Perhaps someone can help me out? Thanks
Can anyone help? I have a UK registered Mini which I am not planning on re-registering in France - the car is back and forewards to the UK. The MOT has expired on the car and I need to have a controle technique done. I have done this here in the past and it has been no problem whatsoever. However this time I have been asked for a certificat de conformite and I'm really not sure why I need this now, can anyone explain and confirm that it is definitely necessary? Thank you in advance!
Hello, I would like to find the cost of registering a Citreon Picasso here in France (dept 07) at the Prefecture, you can find the cost online if you have the right info. If anyone has a diesel Picasso (around 2004 / 05) can you tell me the fiscal cv rating that is stated under section 'P6' of the Carte Gris so that I can find the cost to register, I believe this will be a single digit number. Our 1.9 diesel Renault Scenic has a value of 6 so maybe a 1.9 diesel Picasso will be the same ? many thanks,
I bought a used car about a month ago. I was told I have thirty days to file the registration paperwork, so I'm nervous. What happens if I miss the deadline? Is there a fine for filing late? Also, I'm not really sure of the process. Do I have to go somewhere in person? where? Or can I just mail it or do it online? A friend of mine (French) bought a used car and never filed for registration. He never got pulled over, so it wasn't a problem. He got hit by another car and his vehicle was totalled, so the insurance company just took the wreck and paid him for it, apparently without any problem. What about selling an unregistered vehicle to another person? Is that possible? I have the cancelled and signed carte grise from the previous owner and the paperwork we filled out when he sold it to me. Sorry for being so scatterbrained, I know I asked a ton of questions. Thanks.
We went to the Prefecture two months ago to register a car we bought off a friend and still haven't received the Carte grise. I haven't yet got the new plates for it (as we've been away) and I was wondering if this is holding it up somehow. Is it normal for it to take so long? The money came out of my bank weeks ago...
Hi, Sort of odd situation - we're finding that my partner is spending almost half the year in the UK, due to travel, family and business obligations. As such we would like to keep our UK car insurance but are nervous about it being deemed void if we need to claim on it while in France (by that I mean an occurrence happening IN France). Does anyone use an insurance company that is UK-based that is sympathetic towards these sorts of situations?
