Regarding Licensing:  Stokes Auction, as an automobile dealer will charge the buyer of each vehicle the appropriate filing fees required by the State of Washington.  These fees include the cost of plates and tabs.  New plates AND a full 12 months registration will be issued at cost to the buyer and Stokes Auction will issue a temporary 45-day paper plate for each vehicle sold. The average “filing fee” for a passenger vehicle is $224.25 and goes up from there depending on scale weight and if you live in an RTA or TBD zone. Buyer's may opt to not purchase license plates and tabs and pay for "title purposes only" or "TPO." The cost of "TPO" is $42.00, however, the vehicle will not come with license or tabs and no 45 day permit, as such, the buyer will need to provide or purchase a 3-day move permit at the cost of $33 or trailer the vehicle from our property.


ALL vehicle buyer’s will be required to show their valid driver’s license


Out-of-state buyer

Be prepared to provide two forms of ID showing your name and matching out of state address. You will be required to provide either a legal license plate for transport, a trailer or a three day move permit. (We may have these on hand for purchase, they cost $33). Also, it is the out-of-state buyer's responsibility to verify the vehicle they are buying is legal in their state and that the title work, or releases will be sufficient.
Do be aware that a Washington release of interest (ROL) will not be sufficient to use outside this state. Any vehicle sold with a ROL to an out-of-state buyer must be processed within Washington, this means sales tax and filing fees will be collected.
