How To Sell My Car In Indiana

The staff at PrivateAuto has put together this guide to selling your car in Indiana.

Documents You Need To Sell Your Car In Indiana

Certificate of Title

Complete 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.

Odometer Statement

Complete the odometer disclosure on the back of the title. Cars that are more than 10 years old are exempt.

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

Bill of Sale

Indiana requires you to provide the buyer with a bill of sale.

Be sure to include:

  • Buyer’s name.
  • Vehicle description.
  • Make
  • Model
  • Year
  • Color
  • Vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • Sales price
  • Date of sale
  • Your signature

Keep a copy of the title and the Bill of Sale for your records

PrivateAuto includes a bill of sale with your car listing.

Vehicle History Report

It’s the buyer’s responsibility to research the car’s history. However, if you aren’t the first owner of the car, a history report can reveal useful info.

Also, when you provide a history report to the buyer, you present yourself as a trustworthy seller.

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

Test Drive

The buyer will want to test drive the car to see if it’s what he or she wants. You’ll need to set up a location and time to meet.

This can lead to endless back-and-forth texts and phone calls. But when you list your car with PrivateAuto, you can use the free Test Drive scheduling tool.

Indiana License Plates

Indiana requires you to remove the license plates from a sold automobile. You can transfer them to another car you own through the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).
