There are three main types of property a bill of sale is used for: vehicles, vessels, and firearms. For everything else, you can check all the variants we offer or use a generic template that can be customized to any private deal conducted in Florida.
A Florida vehicle bill of sale is a template used specifically for recording vehicle ownership transfer. It is advised to indicate the title number along with the vehicle’s VIN when filling out the form. The ownership transfer is complete only once the buyer applies for and gets a new title for the vehicle.

A generic template would be useful if you’re selling or buying small-scale personal property and when there is no special form available just for that property. It would require a bit more effort to fill it out properly, but it still includes all the boilerplate clauses such a document should have.

You’re required to document the vehicle within ten days of the sale or from the time of moving to Florida. Your insurance for injuries for each individual will have to be a minimum of $10,000, and up to a total of $20,000 in coverage for all persons per accident.
Florida does not have a specific law that demands firearm registration. Due to the absence of a firearms state registry, you also don’t need to record the possession transfer. Documenting guns you’re taking with you while moving to the state is not required either. Also, it is prohibited for individuals to open carry handguns in the state of Florida.
