Almeria car dealers complain over illegal street sales.

THE Almeria Province Business Confederation (Asempal) is demanding that the authorities put a stop to cars being sold on the streets throughout the province.

It is not rare to see second-hand cars parked on the streets with a ‘for sale’ sign in the windscreen, although it is illegal, but the Provincial Association of Car Distributors and Vehicle Repair Garages in Almeria has complained that they take up parking spaces as well as being unfair competition for proper car showrooms.

This way of selling cars is illegal because the sellers are avoiding paying taxes and most of the time, although the cars appear to be sold by private sellers, there is a business behind this cover.

The association has written to Almeria’s mayors to point out that the sellers have no authorization, and that buyers could be in danger as they have no guarantees.
