• BUYING AND SELLING FAQS

CO Buying & Selling

Buying and selling a vehicle in Colorado is going to bring forth different requirements, which must be followed through for the proper transfer of a vehicle from one owner to another. That is not all though, as there are several other things that should be coursing through your mind, whether you are the seller or the buyer. Understand the difference between buying a new car and a used car, past the visual and obvious differences. Understand what you will be responsible to do as you sell your Colorado vehicle, which paperwork you will need to submit and which should be given to the buyer. Understand what the Bill of Sale in Colorado is used for, and how to get a vehicle history report to either prove to buyers that your vehicle is what you say, or to ensure that a seller isn't putting one over on you.

There are several key details that you must know if you are interested in buying or selling a vehicle in Colorado, as there will be:

  • a title
  • a registration
  • tag transfer

That must be done according to the Colorado state guidelines, and not those of another state. If you are already searching the market for a new or pre-owned vehicle, be sure that you are getting something that you really want, something that is going to be reliable, and something that isn't going to have you going back and forth to the shop and wondering whether the Lemon Law applies to you.

Colorado Bill of Sale

Vehicle History Reports and Your Warranty

  • Is there a vehicle warranty covering your vehicle's repairs? If not, can you get one? If you are buying a used vehicle a vehicle history report is likely going to be your only defense against a clunker that is going to cost more money than you think, as most pre-owned vehicles don't come with a warranty. However, find out about what type of warranties are offered in Colorado, if you can transfer a warranty in a private sale, or if there is an extended warranty offered for your vehicle.
