Oregon has state-specific rules for selling a used car. This guide will help make the process easy.
Step 1 - Gather Documents
Certificate of Title
Complete the title transfer section on the back of the title.
- Buyer name and address.
- Selling price.
- Date of sale.
- Odometer reading.
- Buyer’s signature.
- Your signature.
You can’t sell a car in Oregon if there’s a lien on the title. Pay off any loan before you sell.
Bill of Sale
Oregon doesn’t require a bill of sale. It’s still a good idea to give one to the buyer and keep a copy. It could help if any tax or legal issues come up.
When you sell with PrivateAuto, you get an electronic bill of sale and state-specific documents you need. You can fill them out and sign right in the app.
Vehicle History Report
Show your customer that you’re a trustworthy seller. A vehicle history report can show your car’s true value. PrivateAuto recommends AutoCheck, the best value for the money.
Step 2 - Arrange a Test Drive
Skip the eternal back-and-forth texts and phone calls when planning a test drive. Use PrivateAuto’s test drive scheduler.
Just choose a place to meet your buyer and select days and times you’re available.
Step 3 - Complete the Sale
Remove the license plates before concluding the sale.
Use The Oregon DMV2U website to report the sale within 10 days. The buyer will need to apply for a new title and register the car.
