Whether you are in the business of trading in goods and services, or you merely want to make a private sale more official, having the right Bill of Sale Forms is important. This goes especially for vehicle sales. It is common law in most places for vehicles to have a bill of sale before car titles can be transferred or a vehicle can be registered.

A bill of sale – basically the receipt of the sales transaction – will legally transfer the ownership rights and interests of the vehicle from seller to buyer for an agreed price.

How to Use These Samples

We have included here the most usable, generic bill templates for unspecified vehicles (in case what you are selling is more than just a car).

  • The unbranded samples are great templates that you can download, print, and use for official, private transactions right away.
    • These can be used for any vehicle that can be registered – car, truck, van, trailer, boat, motorbike, helicopter, you name it. If it can be registered, it can be billed.
  • The branded forms can be used as good references for official sales receipts used in actual organizations dealing in motor vehicles, most famously the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles), which exists in several US states.
    • (You might also be interested in other Sample DMV Bill of Sale Forms.)
    • Note: If you own a scrapyard or are holding a garage sale, selling parts of vehicles would also merit a bill of sale. See the third free sample from the DMV for reference.

How to Write a Vehicle Bill of Sale

If you are using these samples as guidelines in drafting your own bill of sale, make sure you have these DMV-approved details in your form:

  • Type of vehicle, whether it is a motor vehicle, a motorcycle, a boat, or any other vehicle type
  • Information of the vehicle, such as the make and model, year, odomoter reading, and the VIN or vehicle identification number
  • Buyer’s and seller’s personal information, such as their names, addresses, and signatures
  • Transaction date or purchase date
  • Final price for purchase

These are the basic details you will find in many other Sample General Bill of Sale Forms.
