There are two steps to a successful used car sale in Texas:
- Getting a great sale price, and
- Legally protecting yourself.
Step one is built on competitive pricing, great advertising, and firm negotiation. Step two is built on a great Texas vehicle bill of sale.
A top-notch bill of sale does much more than give you a sale receipt. It protects you in case the vehicle breaks down after the sale. It ensures safe payment. And it helps you and the buyer with all the requirements of the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
You know you’ll make more money selling your car yourself, rather than trading it in at a car dealer. Make one of these mistakes, and you risk losing that money:
#1: Not Using a Bill of Sale
Thinking about selling your car with a simple handshake? Don’t do it.
Here’s why. First, without a bill of sale you may not comply with Texas’s statute of frauds. Second, you’ll have little protection against a lawsuit if your vehicle breaks down after the sale.
#2: Using a Free Texas Bill of Sale
Some sellers use a free bill of sale from the Web. Yes, it’s better than nothing. But it’s still a bad idea.
Most free bills of sale are generic and not written for selling a car in Texas. They’re also written poorly and use outdated, confusing words. Experts agree that legal documents should be written in normal words that you understand. Otherwise you may end up with a misunderstanding or worse, a lawsuit.
That’s not all. Free bills of sale also fail to cover Texas DMV requirements, such as filing a Vehicle Transfer Notification. Forget to file that form, and you may be on the hook for the buyer’s traffic violations, parking tickets, and even accidents.
An Easy Solution
You now know you need a great bill of sale. Where to find one? Two options:
- Hire a lawyer, or
- Buy an affordable, professionally written bill of sale.
The first option is okay, but be prepared to spend time looking for an attorney and paying him or her at least $250.
The second option is where we come in. Our attorneys researched Texas laws. We spoke with the DMV and reviewed their forms. And we know how to write legal contracts, like bills of sale, in easy-to-understand English.
The result is a great Texas vehicle bill of sale that you can download immediately for the low cost of $14.95.
Protect Yourself Legally
It’s a fact. Used cars have mechanical problems. That’s why the #1 risk of a seller is being sued by a buyer, unhappy because the vehicle broke down.
Luckily, you can protect yourself under Texas law, and our bill of sale does just that:
That means you won’t be responsible for any repairs after the sale. And because our bill of sale is a legal contract, you’ll be legally protected under Texas law.
Our bill of sale also protects you by allowing you to pick a safe method of payment (e.g., a cashier’s check) and delivery location (e.g., the seller’s bank).
Get Help with Texas DMV Requirements
To sell a used car in Texas, you need to follow all the requirements of the DMV.
Worried you’ll miss something important? Don’t be. Our bill of sale tells you, as well as the buyer, exactly what to do.
For example, it tells you how to transfer ownership to the buyer. It tells the buyer, in turn, what DMV form to complete and by when. It also covers license plates, and who is responsible for fees, taxes, and insurance. We guarantee that no other bill of sale does this. Or you get a full refund, no questions asked.
