Collect Information

Before completing a bill of sale, it is a good idea to collect some basic information, such as the name and address of the buyer and seller, the price, and any identifying details for the goods being sold. For example, if you are selling a car, you will need the make, model, year, body type, odometer, and vehicle identification number (VIN).
