Another important function of the vehicle purchase contract is its use with respect to the sale bill of the vehicle. As mentioned above, the contract will reveal the full terms of the sale by the previous owner to the current one: the names (seller/buyer) in the transaction, the information of the car, the amount for which it was purchased, the rights and responsibilities transferred as a result of the sale contract. Remember that your car purchase contract is a binding contract. It is important that you check it carefully before signing. According to Consumer Reports, these are some things you need to pay attention to: if you buy a used vehicle from a private seller, the seller may ask you to sign a sales contract which is a very simplified form of car purchase contract. Sellers need to have proof that vehicles are no longer in their possession when vehicles are to be abandoned or involved in rear-end collisions. It also serves as a “pink brief” for buyers until the paperwork is complete. As a general rule, it is customary to provide buyer and seller information at the beginning of the purchase document. The information in this document contains the name of the designated distributor and your buyer; information about the vehicle: the manufacturer, the factory, the model, the model year, the VIN, the mileage. All this data needs to be checked in detail to ensure that everything matches the information of the vehicle you are buying.
Traders always use a sales contract to close a sale, and this is an agreement between the buyer and the seller. However, if you are buying a vehicle from an individual, you must sign a sales invoice which is a simplified form of sales contract. This is necessary for the individual to prove that he is effectively no longer in possession of the vehicle if the vehicle is involved in a car accident or when it has been abandoned. The sales slip can also be used as a “pink briefs” for the buyer until the papers for the new property are ready.
