Here’s a handy guide to selling your car in Vermont from the team at PrivateAuto.
Step 1 - Gather Documents
Certificate of Title
Complete the Reassignment of Ownership section on the back of the certificate.
- Buyer name and address.
- Selling price.
- Date of sale.
- Odometer disclosure.
- Buyer’s signature.
- Your signature.
Bill of Sale
Vermont requires you to provide a Bill of Sale and Odometer Disclosure (form VT-005).
Keep a copy for yourself. It can help with any tax or legal issues later on.
When you sell with PrivateAuto, you get an electronic bill of sale form and state-specific documents you need. You can fill them out and sign right in the app.
Vehicle History Report
It’s up to the buyer to research the car’s history. You could show yourself a trustworthy seller by providing the report for them. We recommend AutoCheck, the best value for the money.
Step 2 - Arrange a Test Drive
Setting up a test drive can lead to endless phone calls and texts. Use PrivateAuto’s test drive scheduler instead.
Just choose a place to meet your buyer and select days and times you’re available.
Step 3 - Complete the Sale
Remove the license plates before finalizing the sale.
The buyer will need to:
- Pay the purchase and use tax.
- Pay transfer fees and apply for a new title.
