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 a generic bill of sale 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.
