how to sell a car privately

Have any of you sold a car privately? Meaning to another buyer instead of a dealership? What processes do you have to go thru to make it all legal? What forms do I need??

Re: how to sell a car privately

you just sign a thing on the title saying that the other person is now the owner of the car, and they take it to the DMV to have it put in their name. I always make up a bill of sale also, just to be on the safe side. All this is for a paid off car though, I have never done it with a car that still had payments on it.

Selling a car without a lein on it, simply fill out a bill of sale including the vin number, miles, your signature, the buyer's signature, and usually 2 witnesses. Then, sign over the title to them, and they'll take care of the rest.
If the car has a lein on it, do a bill of sale the same way as above. The seller pays off the lein and tells the bank where to send the title. And hopefully the bank sends it to the right place in a timely manner lol.

Re: how to sell a car privately

its not hard really. You have to get the title to them, your bank can help you though the process no problem (unless they are a A-hole bank and charge you or something stupid like that)

$23k and it's yours. Already with 375whp and 400wtq. :thumbs2:


It doesn't sound that hard then. I still owe $14k on it, so I guess I would just get a check for the remainder of the money and he would pay off the lein? I went thru Chase when I financed, so I guess we could just do this at the local Chase bank?

couple reasons:
- I feel like something is about to breat now that I'm at 400hp.
- I wouldn't go much further with it anyway, and this project car is done
- The car is worth ~7k more than I owe and that would get me out of debt with a little extra. (most important)

I really want to get out of debt and by selling this and buying somthing for say.. $15k, I could get out of debt and make some money to pay off my credit cards. I would be ahead financially by doing that.

Win, win situation




UPDATE: I posted on the evo forum and one guy offered me 21k. I asked him if he could do 23k and he said he would have to talk to his uncle, unless I want to trade for a 98 TT supra 6spd:arg: :worship:

youre gonna say yes right? though there must be something ****ed up with the supra if theyd want to trade it for a evo. dont get me wrong, evos kick ***(mainly cause of the 4g63), but supras are flat out insane, especially when done right, 1000hp on stock internals and endless freeway fun.

and i still had a loan on the eclipse when i sold it. i went to the bank, and got the "payoff amount", which is how much i would pay if i paid it off that week. then the buyer went to his credit union, told him i was selling the car for 9k, and i went there and we all met, i gave them the form with the payoff amount, they then paid off the car, and gave me a check for the difference between the loan and what i wanted, which was 3k(i owed 6, sold it for 9), i signed the title over, and was done.

though if theyre not getting a loan and are using cash, both parties will have to meet at the bank that owns the car, and that bank should handle everything.

I forgot to mention, the Supra has 200k miles on it. So no, I'm not saying yes. It would be an amazing car and would be so much fun, but I would need to spend $20k in the car to have it running like that. (new engine, clutch, turbo, etc) I am trying to do this so I can get out of debt, not $20k more in debt

Re: how to sell a car privately

use autotrader... start at a rediculously high price (like 26k or so) just so you have some bargaining power. Trust me, youll get tons of calls... I sold my white car in no time using autotrader.
