How do I register a car under my business’s name?

My landscaping company is growing, and I need to add more vehicles to our fleet. However, I’m not sure where to start. How do I register a car under a business name?

Congrats on your growing business! I’m happy to say that registering your vehicle under a business is an easy process and begins by taking a trip to the DMV. Here’s what to do:
  • Head to the DMV and request a title transfer form
  • For new owner, list the full name of the LLC that you’re registering the vehicle under
  • Sign the title request
  • Notarize the document to become the authorized signer for the private vehicle and the LLC
If you are registering your vehicle under a business, you will also need to utilize a commercial car insurance policy. The average cost of a commercial policy is $142 dollars a year; however, shopping around on car insurance quotes will help you find the best rates.
If you want to compare rates easily, check out the Jerry app. We’ll get you customized quotes from top-of-the-line providers, so that all you need to do is choose the plan that works best for you. And once you’ve chosen, we’ll even help you switch!
Congrats again, and hope your business continues to expand!
