Texas has its own rules for selling a used car. This guide will help make it simple.
Step 1 - Gather Documents
Certificate of Title
Complete the Assignment of Title section on the back of the certificate.
- Buyer name and address.
- Date of sale.
- Odometer disclosure.
- Buyer’s signature.
- Your signature.
Bill of Sale
Texas doesn’t require a bill of sale. You should still provide one as proof of the transaction.
Keep a copy for yourself. It can help with any legal issues later on.
Your PrivateAuto listing includes an electronic bill of sale form and state-specific documents. You can fill them out and sign straight from the app.
Vehicle History Report
With a history report, you can show that you’re a trustworthy seller. PrivateAuto trusted partner AutoCheck offers the best value for the money.
Step 2 - Arrange a Test Drive
Setting up a test drive can be a nightmare. It often leads to never-ending calls, emails, and texts. Use PrivateAuto’s test drive scheduler instead.
Just choose a place to meet and select days and times you’re available.
Step 3 - Complete the Sale
Remove the license plates before finalizing the sale. You can transfer them to another vehicle through your local tax assessor-collector.
You will need to submit a notice of transfer. This will release you from liability in case the new owner…
- Uses the car in a crime.
- Is in an accident.
- Abandons the car.
