What is curbstoning? Curbstoning or curbsiding is the act of selling vehicles without actually complying with dealer regulations. Curbstoning usually take place on curb, side of the road or on private property (that actually may appear abandoned or unused). Vehicles that are usually involved in curbstoning are either; stolen, salvage repaired, reconstructed, water damaged, odometer tampered, etc.
A curbstoner may or may not have proper license. For example, a dealer that appears legit may have a license and an actual dealership, but may take part in curbstoning-by selling vehicles off the road, away from his property or at another location. The vehicles that the crooked dealer is selling are usually in poor condition (visible or invisible; there may be red-flagged vehicle issues, etc. and he knows that if he sold them on his lot, that he would face criminal charges and lose his dealers license. Please be advised that state motor vehicle dealer boards, have laws in place that prohibits anyone from selling more than the "cut-off" (depending on the state), amount of vehicles within an allotted time-frame. In this situation, selling more vehicles than the state allows and over the allotted time, requires one to obtain a dealer license. In essence, failure to comply with this regulation makes curbstoning an illegal practice.
