Required Documents to Transfer a Vehicle in Pennsylvania

Either buying or selling a vehicle can be a stressful experience. Buyers have the following thoughts: Is this the right one for me? How will I know if it has been maintained properly? Will it last for at least a couple years?

Sellers also have concerns, such as: Will the buyer show up? How long should I wait for my car to return from a test drive before panicking? Should I take a check from this guy?

Here at ASC Title & Tags, we can't help you with any of those questions, so good luck with all the voices in your head. What we can do is help you execute a transfer. While there are many variables, these are the most common situations. Call to get clarification and additional information. Here are some of the different instances and what you need to bring.
