How To Sell My Car In Arizona

Here are some guidelines for selling your car in Arizona

Documents Needed To Sell Your Car In Arizona

Certificate of Title

Complete the following on the reverse side of the title:

  • Buyer name and address.
  • Buyer signature.
  • Your signature.
  • Odometer disclosure if the car is less than 10 years old.
  • Rebuilt from salvage disclosure if needed.

Arizona requires you to have your signature notarized.

Odometer Statement

You and the buyer must complete the Conforming Odometer Statement on the back of the title. Automobiles older than 10 years are exempt.

If there’s no room on the title, you and the buyer must complete the Federal Odometer Disclosure Statement.

Sold Notice

Completing a sold notice releases you from liability if the car is:

  • Used in a crime.
  • In an accident.
  • Abandoned.
  • Ticketed.

Bill of Sale

Arizona does not require a bill of sale. The buyer, however, may have trouble getting registration and insurance without it.

PrivateAuto includes a bill of sale with a vehicle listing.

How To Replace a Lost Title in Arizona

You can get a duplicate title on the Arizona Motor Vehicles Division website.

Vehicle History Report

By offering to provide a vehicle history report, you present yourself as a trustworthy seller.

When you sell your car with PrivateAuto, you get a vehicle history report at no extra cost.

How To Register a Car To a New Owner in Arizona

Arizona requires you to remove the license plate when the car is sold.

You can register the plate to another vehicle you own or request a plate refund.

The buyer can visit an MVD office or affiliate for registration. A temporary 3-day permit allows him or her to drive the car to complete the transaction.
