Washington has its own rules for selling a used car. This handy guide will make selling easier.
Step 1 - Gather Documents
Certificate of Title
Complete the Assignment by Registered Owner section on the title. It’s at the bottom of the front side of the certificate.
- Odometer reading without tenths.
- Transfer date.
- Your name, signature, and address.
- Buyer’s name, signature, and address.
Bill of Sale
State law requires you to provide a completed Vehicle/Vessel Bill of Sale form TD-420-065. Keep a copy for your records.
Your PrivateAuto listing includes an electronic form TD-420-065 and other state-specific documents. Complete and sign right in the app.
Vehicle History Report
It’s the buyer’s responsibility to research the car’s history.
But you can earn the buyer’s trust by providing a vehicle history report. AutoCheck, PrivateAuto’s trusted partner, delivers the best value for the money.
Step 2 - Arrange a Test Drive
There’s no need to have strangers come to your house for a test drive. The PrivateAuto test drive scheduler will suggest a place to meet.
And you can skip the endless back-and-forth texts, calls, and emails.
You only need to choose the location and times that you’re available.
Step 3 - Complete the Sale
Remove the license plates before completing the sale. You can transfer them to another vehicle that you own.
You’ll need to file a report of sale with the Department of Licensing within 5 days. This protects you from any liabilities the new owner incurs. You’ll need to pay a fee of $13.50.
