Be careful not all post offices (or banks) carry that much cash in the front office. Ended up doing this, but had to find a main city branch (vs. local) to get the cash - CS in this case.

Alternatively, if you know you are going to need the cash, you can call the local post office to tell them you will be needing it and they will have it standing by. But that means know which branch you can/will be going to.
Talk to the seller.... he may well be as uncomfortable at carrying 40K cash as you are. If you both go to the post, and he sees the Transfer stamped then it is just a question of waiting until the post execution of the fund Transfer.


Alternately, go together to your bank and arrange to Transfer the funds to his account. Most Banks will preform the Transfer that day if you initiate it before 11:00.

If the OP is not comfortable with a 40k cash transaction he should buy a cheaper car.
