What Do I Need To Sell My Car In Tampa?

Selling your car in the greater Tampa area is simple. This is all you need to complete the sale:

  • A valid title for your vehicle in your name

  • The keys to your car

Getting a Bill of Sale as part of the process will be helpful for your records and for showing the DMV that you are no longer liable for the vehicle.

Additionally, you'll want to remember to remove your personal belongings. Don't forget to remove your license plates. Florida law mandates that plates stay with the seller, not with the vehicle!
