Selling a Vehicle

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) shown on the title must match the VIN on the titled asset, FULL VIN (17 Digits) is required on these types of vehicles.
Trailers must have at least the last 6 digits to verify the VIN to allow it to be sold. If the VIN plate or sticker has degraded and fallen off, the last 6 digits can sometimes be found on the tongue either stamped or welded, if it has less than 6 digits, please call the office and speak to Heather.
Trailers under 9,000 GVW in Nebraska don’t normally require a title but they should have a registration ID number and you will need to provide the current registration.
Classic Cars (Cars Manufactured prior to the 17 Digit VIN)
Classic Cars VIN locations can vary, the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) shown on the title must match the VIN on the titled asset, FULL VIN is required on these types of vehicles. If you are unsure of the VIN location on your classic car, there are car clubs registered with the Nebraska DMV that may be able to help.
Titles are legal documents; when signing your title – DO NOT scratch out or make any erasures, this will void the title and will result in you needing to obtain and pay for a duplicate title!
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO SIGN THE TITLE, PLEASE call our office and speak with Heather BEFORE you sign anything.
We recommend that titles are brought to our office in Fremont and we can direct you on how to sign the titles correctly.
All owners that appear on the face of the title must sign where indicated on the title. All signatories also must sign the title exactly as their name(s) appear on the front of the title (ie. Joseph C. Smith MUST be signed as Joseph C. Smith, NOT Joe Smith, JC Smith, etc.). Additionally, if the title is in an LLC or Corporation name, an authorized representative for the LLC/Corporation MUST execute the title. The LLC/Corporation name must be signed first and then the authorized representative must sign their name with their respective title as well.
All license plates will be removed prior to the auction. If you want to retain the license plates, you need to remove them yourself. The auction will dispose of all license plates they remove.
Buying a Vehicle
On auction day once payment is made, you will be asked to sign ‘Title Paperwork’, this paperwork will be your proof of purchase and will need to remain in the vehicle until it is titled and registered in your name. The paperwork will include In-Transits which are good for 30 days.
Once payment is made, please email firstname.lastname@example.org on how you would like your ‘Title Paperwork’ to filled out, this will be how the title is made out under Buyer section. The paperwork will be sent via email for your signatures.
Titles are mailed by USPS certified mail 3 weeks after the auction regardless of payment type. The mailing address can be different than what appears on the title, we do not mail titles a second time if they are returned to us because they weren’t picked up at the post office.
