Selling a car in Switzerland

Hi there, we are selling our car and the buyer said he will get a werkstattnummer. Does anyone know why the buyer needs this before we make the sale? Also, we are selling through AutoScout and accidentally kept the box ticked for Cash Sentinel. I looked it up and it seems ok as a licensed agency providing escrow management. But has anyone had any experiences good or bad with Cash Sentinel when buying or selling a car in Switzerland or is there anything we should be aware of? Many thanks

Send the buyer a copy of the grey card, he will need this for insurance.
Just accept cash, like everybody else in CH.

Maybe he is going to get it tested by the garage before he buys it.

I used CashSentinel to buy my car this summer and it was pretty straightforward. The transfer of money to the seller on our mobile phones went smoothly. They even called me after the transaction to see if everything went OK. Hope that helps.
