How to Sell a Vehicle in Missouri?

There are several steps you need to take when selling a car or selling a boat in Missouri:

  1. Make necessary repairs to the vehicle - there may be issues that will prevent the sale. Determine the reasonable price of the car or boat. Clean your vehicle and advertise it. Also, it is essential to find a good venue to present the vehicle to potential new owners;
  2. Establish which documents are needed to make the sale legitimate. Under the law, you need to sign a bill of sale or a notice of sale, provide a certificate of title to the vehicle buyer, and have safety and emissions inspection papers not more than 60 days old in your possession. Sometimes, there are additional documents - a Manufacturer's Statement of Origin, a court order, or an out-of-state registration card;
  3. Complete and sign the bill of sale. Each party needs to have a copy of the document as a proof the transaction took place;
  4. Give all the vehicle documentation to the buyer.

When the vehicle is purchased, the new owner becomes liable for registering the vehicle with the Missouri Department of Revenue within thirty days from the date of purchase. It is required to pay the appropriate fee and obtain insurance.

Form 5049, Notice of Sale or Transfer is a related document that may be used instead of a bill of sale when you need to:

  1. Obtain a subsequent vehicle tax credit or a 180-day replacement;
  2. Obtain a temporary permit;
  3. Substantiate the purchase price of the item.

The Missouri Vehicle Bill of Sale contains the following information:

  1. The full names and addresses of the parties;
  2. Description of the motor vehicle, boat, trailer, or outboard motor. Write down its make, year, title number, sale date, price, and identification number;
  3. Description of the unit or vehicle traded for if the transaction involves trade;
  4. Signatures of the seller and the purchaser;
  5. Notary seal. The document must be notarized when you demonstrate proof of ownership of major component parts of a rebuilt vehicle or when it is specifically requested by the Department of Revenue.
