Get a vehicle history report to present to potential buyers; this provides credibility and builds trust. Reports from Carfax are available on; other services are available online as well. If you have detailed inspection records, prepare itemized copies (with service receipts) for prospective buyers. This shows you've kept up with maintenance and suggests you're selling a reliable vehicle. Make a copy of your vehicle title in preparation for the sale. If you don't have the title, call your lending institution and request they send it to you with a lien release. If you paid off the loan years ago and the lending institution no longer exists, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (888-206-4662) can help you obtain your title. Ownership-transfer legalities vary from state to state, so get the details from your local DMV. It's a good idea to fill out a bill of sale, even though it doesn't legally transfer ownership. Some states make this a requirement. A bill of sale lists the car's vehicle identification number, a description of the car, the date of sale, the purchase price, and the names and signatures of both parties in the transaction.
