Want to sell something online? Simple. But if you’re selling a car, there are a few more hoops to jump through than dropping some Dunks on DePop or shifting an Xbox on eBay.
Some states require a bill of sale and others require that the auto title is notarized to transfer ownership. Glazing over? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Let’s break down everything you need to know to sell your car online. We’re sure you can handle it (and if you’re still confused, just get in touch with our customer service A-team).
This varies by state, so take a quick look at our handy title guide to confirm whether you need to sign your title before handing it over.
Some states require car owners to also deliver a bill of sale, which you can usually download and print for free from your state’s DMV website. The states that have this requirement as of June 2023 are:
If someone has borrowed money to buy a car, and there is an outstanding debt, then the lender will place a lien on the vehicle.
