I need to send a pdf to a potential buyer and your website won't let me. Why?

5 Answers

You don't know what a pdf is? It's a document format. Lots of people use them. Yikes.


I know what it is. Are you trying to send a CarFax? Send the link CF gives you! Yikes!


I also needed to send a 25 page .pdf document (of the last 2.5 years of maintenance records with personal information redacted) to a potential buyer. Instead of emailing it to the person, which possibly contravenes cargurus terms, I hosted the document on dropbox and then shared a link through the cargurus app. Try this for additional help: https://knowledgebase.constantcontact.com/articles/KnowledgeBase/5601-link-files-to-my-campaign-emails?lang=en_US

Also, if the CarGurus platform blocks your link--which it sometimes likes to do--you can always add the link to your listing. That might not be ideal, but it is probably better than sharing your personal info. Cheers!
