The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles does not offers a standard bill of sale form that you can fill out.

If you decide to write your own bill of sale, make sure to include the following information:

  • Date of sale
  • Cost of vehicle purchase
  • Your full name and address
  • Buyer's full name and address
  • Vehicle's year, make, model, identification number and mileage
  • Acknowledgement of any liens held on the vehicle

After you and the buyer sign the bill of sale, you should make a copy for yourself and hand the buyer the original.

You can also download this generic bill of same from Digital Federal Credit Union.

If you need to sell a vehicle and you are out of state, you may give someone a limited power of attorney just for the purpose of the vehicle sale. 

When you've purchased a vehicle, make sure you have all the information needed to get your car registration and title. The Massachusetts RMV provides this checklist.
