How To Sell My Car In Mississippi

Here are some helpful tips for selling your car in Mississippi.

Step 1 - Collect the Documents

Certificate of Title

Complete the Assignment of Title section on the back of the title.

  • Car model.
  • Selling Price.
  • Date.
  • Odometer disclosure.
  • Your signature and buyer’s signature.

A car sale isn’t valid without a title. If the title is lost or damaged, you can apply for a duplicate title with the Mississippi Department of Revenue (DOR).

If there’s no room for the odometer reading on the title, submit Form 78-105 Odometer Disclosure Statement.

Bill of Sale

You only need a bill of sale in Mississippi if there’s no room for the selling price on the title.

You should consider completing a bill of sale even when it’s not required. It can protect you if the buyer fails to apply for a new title.

Vehicle History Report

You can reassure your buyer of the quality of the car with a vehicle history report.

The report reveals possible thefts, accidents, damage from storms or fire, and other important events. The car’s maintenance records are often part of the report as well.

PrivateAuto now partners with AutoCheck, the best value in a vehicle history report.

When you sell with PrivateAuto Premium, the AutoCheck report is included.

Step 2 - Arrange a Test Drive

You can use the PrivateAuto test drive scheduler to set up a test drive.

Choose where you want to meet prospects, and select times you’re available.

Step 3 - Finalize the Sale

Remove the license plates before you complete the sale. You can’t transfer them to another vehicle. Return them to your county’s tax collector office.

You can securely transfer payment with the PrivateAuto Premium platform.
