Vermont Vehicle Donation Title Questions and Helpful Information
Q:Where do I sign the Title?
A:On the back of the Title please sign in section named Assignment of Ownership in the Seller portion where it reads “Seller’s Signature” and where it reads “Printed Name.”
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:Ownership by Joint Tenant – Surviving spouse signs title. Death Certificate required.
Other Situations – Death Certificate and probate papers are required when one or more people are deceased. Signed title or PoA from person appointed on probate paperwork is also required.
Q:How do I release the liability and what do I do with my plates?
A:There is no release of liability form for the state of Vermont, and because of this the donor should remove their license plates and registration stickers from the vehicle to protect his or herself from future liability issues.
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.
