To register a vessel under your LLC, we will need the original title or certificate of origin along with the other documents from the seller (i.e. odometer statement, reassignments, lien releases, repo certificates, etc). Anything the seller gave you, please send to our office. After registration, we will send back registration, Montana sticker, and any documents we did not need. In addition to the seller documents, please send the attached vehicle information form. This helps expedite the registration process. (Some states do not title boats. We double check this information in our manual, but if no title is issued, we will need the original registration plus a bill of sale from that registered owner to the LLC.)
Verify that ALL documents show the LLC as the purchaser. Anything with your personal name listed as purchaser won’t be accepted by the DMV. The only time your personal name should appear is when you sign it on behalf of the company. Your signature should appear as follows: John Doe, member of
XYZ, LLC. You must sign your paperwork. Our power of attorney covers the application for title and filings with the Secretary of State, not specific dealership documents.
If your personal name is listed as purchaser, please fill out the attached bill of sale form, have it notarized, and include it with the title work. Montana will not register a vehicle in your personal name if you are not a resident of Montana.
The address to use is your business address: 415 N Benton Ave, Helena, MT 59601.
The total fee is $495 registration will be obtained in 1-3 days then forwarded to you via Priority Mail to the address we have on file (unless you specify an alternative). You can remit payment via check or credit card (see attached form).
When mailing in your title work, please send it using a tracking number (FedEx, UPS, or certified mail through USPS).
Please let us know if you have any questions.
