What Do I Need When Trying to Sell My Car?

While selling your car is as easy as 1-2-3 with carsforcashstore.com, there are some important things you need to do when you are trying to sell your car. Whether you want to try selling your car privately or sell it through or to a dealer, you will need to know about federal and state requirements before you can say goodbye to your trusty old ride.

Before you try to sell your car, you will need to go to your local DMV office to find out or fill out the required documents. Depending on your state, you may need any or all of the following: a title transfer, smog certification, a release of liability or a notice of sale, and a bill of sale.

While a smog certification is not required by Florida law, it does require that you provide a completed vehicle title and title transfer in order for your car to be legally transferred out of your name and into the buyer’s. When you complete the vehicle title, make sure that all information is correctly filled out and matches – including the odometer reading and vehicle identification number (VIN). In addition to this, you must submit an accurate odometer reading. This means that you will have to fill out and submit a separate form along with your title transfer.

If you are trying to sell your car in Florida you will need to visit your DMV in order to obtain and fill-out a notice of sale. This form (which may also serve as a bill of sale) is a document that informs the DMV that you have sold your vehicle and free you from liability (therefore you won’t need a release of liability). You must submit this form within 30 days of the sale and it is especially important for the period of time between you selling the car and the buyer titling it, so the sooner you do it the better.

A bill of sale is a legal document that acts as a receipt of the transaction between the buyer and seller of a used car. In the state of Florida it is not necessary to have a bill of sale although it is highly recommended. It is also recommended that if you do get a bill of sale that it be notarized to further legitimize the signatures and the sale.

Another thing that you should consider getting when you want to sell your car is a maintenance record or vehicle history report. These days a lot of buyers won’t consider a car unless the seller can provide them with one of these. It details previous ownerships, accidents, and major work done on the car

If you would like specific information about what needs to be included in these forms and what forms you will need for your particular sale, go down to your local DMV and let them know that you are trying to sell your car. Once you have all the required documents and forms correctly filled out you can contact carsforcashstore.com and say goodbye to your car and hello to cash in your pocket!
