What is an ATV Bill of Sale

An ATV bill of sale is a legal document that is used to formalize the sale of an all-terrain vehicle between a buyer and a seller. It creates a record of the vehicle being sold, the price it was sold for, and from whom and to whom the ownership will pass.

ATV bills of sale are essential forms when purchasing this type of vehicle, especially when doing so from a private seller. It is often necessary when registering the ATV or transferring its title at your local DMV to prove that it is indeed legally yours.

These types of bills of sale also prove practical if a dispute occurs over the ownership of the ATV between the buyer and seller. The document clearly lays out the terms of their agreement, a description of the all-terrain vehicle at the time of sale, and the signatures of both parties to avoid ambiguity.

UTV Bill of Sale

Used during the sale or purchase of a Utility Task Vehicle (UTV), it outlines the details of the transaction between the buyer and the seller, including the purchase price, vehicle description, and the date of sale. 

A UTV Bill of Sale is vital for registration and taxation purposes and includes a disclosure statement from the seller about the current condition of the UTV. 

This form also serves as crucial protection for both buyer and seller. For the buyer, it acts as a confirmation of their ownership, vital for registration or if the UTV is stolen. For the seller, it releases them from future liability associated with the UTV.

Take a look at the following table to understand the differences between ATVs (All-Terrain Vehicles) and UTVs (Utility Task Vehicles):
