Q:Where do I sign the Title?
A:On the back of the Title please sign where it reads “Signature of Seller(s)” and next to that “Printed names of Seller(s).”.
Q:I paid off my car but there is still a lienholder listed?
The lienholder should have provided a Lien Release or completed the Lien Release section on Title when it was paid off. If a Lien Release is required please contact your financial institution. We will request one if necessary directly from the bank or other financial institution on your behalf but may need a written authorization and copy of your driver’s license.
Q:What do I put down for the Buyer?
A:We prefer it be left blank along with the odometer reading as the processing partner will record the exact reading at time of processing and handle the buyer and dealer license information.
Information that is provided by the processing partner may be put in the buyer section.
Q:Can I still donate if I can’t find my Title?
A:We will still attempt to process your donation without the title, though the process may be a bit more complicated.
Duplicate Title Form:
Q:I’m donating the vehicle on behalf of Deceased loved one, what do I need to provide?
A:If the Title is Jointly Titled then the surviving spouse will sign the Title, and provide a copy of the Death Certificate.
If the Title is a Single Owner Title then we would need a copy of the Death Certificate and a copy of the Will (if available) stating who has rights to vehicle.
If there is no Will – then we would need an Affidavit of Heir Form 79-014-00 to be submitted to us.
Q:How do I release the liability and what do I do with my plates?
A:If the vehicle is registered in Mississippi, license plates are not required to be removed from vehicles but it is recommended. If license plates are removed; they should be destroyed or returned to the Department of Revenue in Mississippi.
Q:Will you take a vehicle that has mechanical problems?
A:Vehicles are reviewed and sent to a processing partner, however if we are unable to find a buyer for the vehicle, we will have to unfortunately decline the donation.
