Process your vehicle(s) to send to auction:
- Complete a DPS-29 for each vehicle
- Verify the VIN on the DPS-29 with the VIN on the actual vehicle, make sure the MILEAGE is correct**, fill in the CODING section as well, in case we sell your vehicle to another agency, and sign the DPS-29.
- **If mileage is incorrect on your DPS-29 and it results in a title being produced with incorrect mileage, a corrected title will need to be requested. This greatly delays the sale of the vehicle.
- Locate your original Certificate of Origin, Title or court documents if it is a seized vehicle or asset forfeiture (if it is a seized vehicle or asset forfeiture, please be specific as to which). If you do not have an original Certificate of Origin or Title, you will need to obtain and complete a Motor Vehicle Q-1 form (Opens in a new window) from the DMV, along with a Lost CO Letter. A Q-1 form (Opens in a new window) is needed for asset forfeiture/seized property vehicles, but a letter is not.
- Sign your Certificate of Origin/Title as the seller. Leave the mileage and the buyer/sold to areas blank on this form.
- Email Kristin Wright at the Property Room your DPS-29. She will enter it in the vendor data system and send you a manifest. Have the tow truck driver sign this manifest at pickup and keep it for your records.
- Make a copy of the DPS-29 for the tow company and give that copy to them when they pick up the vehicle and keys.
- Mail completed originals to:
State of CT DAS State Surplus, 450 Columbus Blvd, Suite 1202, Hartford, CT 06103.
