How do you sell your car in Iowa?

I’ve finally decided to sell my second car. How do I sell a car in Iowa?

Answer
I’m sure it’ll be nice to get some extra cash in your pocket! When you sell a car in Iowa, you need to give the buyer the correct information and documents. You can find most of the forms on the Iowa Department of Transportation website.
  • An odometer statement form
  • Bill of sale
  • The title
  • Damage disclosure statement form
  • Checklist and Buyer’s Acknowledgment form
  • Notice of Sale of Vehicle and Delivery of Title form
If you aren’t planning on buying another car within the next 30 days, you’ll also need to return your plates to your county’s treasurer.
Beyond Iowa specific requirements, you should also make sure you remove your second car from your car insurance once the sale is complete. Leaving insurance on your car means you could be liable for any damage that the new owner causes.
Since you’re removing your second car from your insurance, take the time to review your policy and shop around. Anytime you make changes to your policy, it’s always good to explore your options.
