Processing titles and registrations for all types of boats can be a challenge. There are many variables such as living in one state and buying a boat in a different state and knowing which boats require registration and which ones don’t. Then, there’s navigating the various laws regarding boat titles across all 50 states. Thankfully, Consolidated Automotive Services of Indiana can handle all of these matters and many more.

Understand Boat Registration Laws

When it comes to boat registration laws, they’re as varied as the snowflakes that fall each winter. That may be a slight exaggeration, but all things considered, boat registration laws can be quite complex. Each state has its own set of rules and regulations regarding boat title and registration, that depend on several factors, including the following:

  • Type of boat — non-motorized, engine-powered, or sailboat
  • Type of engine — outboard or inboard
  • Engine horsepower
  • Length of the vessel
  • Boating location
  • Other factors

Conduct Lien Searches

As a commercial boat dealer, you may have already done your due diligence and double-checked each title to make sure there are no current liens. If you sell hundreds of boats each year, allow Consolidated Automotive Services of Indiana to handle this step, making boat sales even easier on your staff and customers. We’ll find out each boat’s lien history, if a lien has been perfected, or if the title is lost or missing. We can even discover any missing information that needs to be added to a new replacement title.
