Skip the Hassles of Processing Car Documents

Planning to sell your old car to upgrade to a new one? You should be ready to deal with a mountain of paperwork before you can get it off your hands. 

If you’re not a fan of processing documents and visiting the DMV, you might be shocked at the amount of legwork you need to do. Here are just some of the papers you need to process and prepare for your buyer.

  • Car title

You have to follow the procedures for transferring the title of your car to its prospective buyer. States differ on the requirements for retitling vehicles, so you need to find out the specific requirements in your state. A couple of requirements you may have to do is to sign the title as the seller and provide the buyer with a document showing your vehicle’s odometer reading. If you’ve lost the original copy of your title, you may have to visit your local DMV to request a duplicate copy of the title.

  • Bill of sale

Even though a bill of sale isn’t legally needed as one of the paperwork you need to sell an automobile, you should still offer one. The document sets the date of sale. This legally ensures that you are released from liability and that your buyer assumes responsibility for the vehicle’s as-is condition.

  • Warranty

You must have your warranty documents ready when selling your car if the warranty is transferrable. The warranty should increase the value of your auto. 

  • Service history

Documentation of maintenance work, such as oil changes, brake services, fluid top-offs, and other larger repairs and upgrades, is helpful since a prospective purchaser would want to see that the vehicle that they are buying has been well taken care of.

Our donation experts will take care of all the stressful paperwork on your behalf — from the transfer of vehicle ownership to the issuance of your tax-deductible receipt. We can even make the necessary arrangements to help you obtain a replacement title in case you misplaced yours.

What’s more, you can take this as an opportunity to extend a helping hand to the struggling disadvantaged veterans in your local community. We’ll use your donation to improve their living conditions.

Our team will sell your car through an auction and use the proceeds to support the life improvement programs of our veteran-focused charity partners. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are dedicated to helping our former service members who are suffering from homelessness, inability to find jobs, service-connected disabilities, and serious illnesses, including mental health conditions.

Our charity partners use the funding we give them to provide their beneficiaries with housing and financial assistance, employment and livelihood opportunities, family support, free quality health care and medical treatment, psychotherapy services, and many other services meant to uplift their lives.

As a donor, you get to enjoy valuable perks, one of which is getting entitled to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season. You also don’t need to pay for our pickup and

towing service. We offer them for free to our donors in all parts of the United States
