If you’re to sell or purchase motor vehicles in Arizona, you can use an official form provided by the state DMV. In Arizona, a bill of sale form is usually required when a person registers a car or goes through a title change process. A purchaser has to have an original bill of sale. It is advisable to prepare a duplicated form to sign during the deal so that both parties will have an original document.
Here is a simple guide to help you correctly fill out Form 48-2004.
Step 1: Enter the vehicle information
In the first part, write down valid information about the vehicle being sold:
Step 2: Define the sale amount
Specify the sale date and the purchase price issued for the vehicle. In the official form of the Arizona bill of sale, you must provide the total amount the seller receives upon a purchase.
Step 3: Specify the buyer’s details
In the next section, you need to enter the information regarding the buyer:
Step 4: Specify the sellers’s details
Similarly to the previous step, you need to write down contact details about the seller:
Verify if all the information is accurate and correct. Only after that, the seller can sign the document. The signature from a purchaser is not mandatory.
Step 5: Ensure you have a notary or MVD agent signature
Arizona’s official bill of sale form must be signed in the presence of a legal representative. They type in the date, county, and state where the document is conducted. There is also a commission expiration date at the end of the document.
Keep in mind that you need to register the newly acquired vehicle within 15 days after its purchase at the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). The vehicle’s seller has to conduct the following activities:
Those who conduct any transfer of vehicle ownership should notify the local MVD by issuing a public “sold” notice. This is done to prevent any criminal activities such as vehicle theft, avoidance of ticketing, abandoning of a car (which is subject to a $500 penalty in Arizona), and concealing an accident.
Once the sale is complete, the seller should keep in mind that the registration document for that vehicle automatically becomes invalid. Thus, they need to visit the local MVD or contact an authorized motor vehicle registration provider for legalizing the transfer of title and the vehicle’s registration with the new owner. Documents needed for the registration of purchase in the state of Arizona include:
Vehicle buyers should keep in mind that vehicle registration can’t be performed online or by mail in Arizona. They will have to appear in the Arizona’s motor vehicle division office personally to present the documents mentioned above and sign the official registration form.
If the vehicle is sold in another state and needs to be transported by road, the buyer should request a Restricted Use Three-Day Permit from the ADOT (if it’s a private sale) or a temporary registration plate (for vehicles bought from official dealers). With these temporary features, the new owner can transit the vehicle to the place of permanent use, registering it there in line with local procedures.
