How to Sell Your Car in Pennsylvania
When it comes to selling your car in Pennsylvania, you will need to take several critical steps. You may need to:
Make sure you have all relevant documentation for the vehicle, including the title, in hand. You may need to show proof of ownership before you can sell your car. If you have a certificate of salvage or a court order assigning ownership—which might occur in a divorce case for instance—you may also need to gather that documentation.
Allow the potential buyer to have the vehicle inspected, if needed. Often, a private buyer will need to have the car checked out by a garage or mechanic before buying.
Prepare a Bill of Sale, if needed. While Pennsylvania does not legally require a Bill of Sale, some buyers will want to have one to show proof of ownership.
Transfer the title. Under Pennsylvania law, you are required to have the Pennsylvania Certificate of Title transferred by an agent, tag service, or motor vehicle dealer. You will need to print and sign your legal name on the tag, provide proof of ID, and have the signature notarized.
WhipFlip can make the process of selling your car in Pennsylvania much easier.
