Massachusetts Bill of Sale

In the state of Massachusetts, it is advisable that a bill of sale be completed when selling or buying a motor vehicle. While you can transfer the car to another by presenting the vehicle's certificate of origin, using a Massachusetts bill of sale will probably save you some time. The Massachusetts Division of Driver Licensing provides a standard bill of sale form, which you should include: the date the car was sold, the amount for which it was purchased, the names and addresses of both the buyer and the seller, the vehicle's make, model and year, its vehicle identification number (VIN) and any liens associated with the ownership of the vehicle.
