What is a Trailer Bill of Sale?

A Trailer Bill of Sale is a legal document that allows a buyer or seller to set terms for the sale or purchase of a trailer. It typically includes important information about the transaction, such as the names of the buyer and seller, contact information, trailer description, sale price, payment methods, and warranty details. If you are selling a trailer, you can use this document to record the details of the purchase for your accounting records. On the other hand, if you are buying a trailer from a private seller, this Bill of Sale serves as a proof of purchase and record of the trailer's expected condition. It is important that this document contain the exact make, model, color, and VIN number of the trailer being sold, so that everyone is on the same page about the purchase in question.

When to use a Trailer Bill of Sale:

  • You own a trailer that you would like to sell, and you want to record the details of the purchase for your accounting records.
  • You plan to buy a trailer from a private seller and you want to have proof of purchase and a record of the agreement in writing.
