What exactly is a title transfer about?

You finally found the perfect vehicle or someone found yours, now what?

Well, the first thing you need to do is document the change of vehicle ownership that the DMV can update their records. This is called a certificate of title transfer.

If this is your first vehicle purchase or the first time you’ve sold a car, we will be happy to assist you step-by-step. We aim to make this process quick and unproblematic for you.

When buying or selling a vehicle, someone will have to handle the title transfer paperwork. This is required to officially change the vehicle owner in the DMV system.


A California certificate of title transfer is also used when a vehicle is purchased on credit or paid off and the lien holder needs to be added or removed, a family member inherits a vehicle, or a co-owner’s name needs to be added or removed for other reasons.

Don’t forget to file your transfer.

You must make sure that all of the proper paperwork is processed when being involved in the vehicle ownership change. You definitely don’t want to put yourself at risk of being held liable for problems by not doing the right paperwork. Failing to file the proper forms will leave the seller liable if the new owner crashes or runs into other trouble while their name is still on the title. It also puts the new owner at risk since the seller could later claim vehicle theft.


The price of our hassle-free, convenient transfer service is $45, and we will give you all the assistance you need to make sure the transfer goes through without any errors. If you need to request a duplicate title or out-of-state transfer, additional fees will apply.
