A Massachusetts bill of sale is used to document the private sale and transfer of personal property from a seller to a buyer. The completed form includes a description of the item being sold, the purchase price, the date of sale, and both parties’ signatures. When selling a used motor vehicle or vessel, the seller should always provide a bill of sale for the buyer to use as proof of purchase and ownership. The new owner can then use the bill of sale to register the newly acquired vessel or vehicle with the appropriate state authority.
