As a dealer, you know that a vital piece of buying or selling a car is the transfer of title. As DMV.org explains, if your customers are buying at the dealership, most of the required paperwork will be handled by the dealership. However, if individuals are selling their cars themselves, they will need to legally transfer the title to the buyer. You as a car dealer can play a role in this private-party transaction, and maybe even make a little green for your services.
Indeed, some local car dealers will actually help individuals do this for a small fee, which can be a good option, especially if those individuals might be concerned about safety when completing the transaction, or don’t have sufficient time to do it themselves.
