Maybe just hang signs that read, NOT FOR COMMERCIAL USE-TRANSPORTING.derm said:Good point! Might rattlecan the logos, as I'll be going thru the whole truck after I return, and that'll convey that I'm not a 'commercial' truck.
The tag should be your state of domicile (also to match your state driver's license).Does the tag need to come from the state it's leaving (NJ) or the state it will be registered next in (CO)? Any idea?
The paper (not binder) has to be specific to the VIN and carried with the truck.I'll contact DMV here tomorrow, although the nearest office is over an hour away.
I'll also call my insurance agent & ensure I get this vehicle covered and some type of certification of such.
Not only illegal but makes the seller responsible for anything that happens with the truck until the tags are turned in. Bad idea for a seller.derm said:Also asked the seller if I could 'ride' his tags home & mail 'em back to him, just to keep it simple...
Roger that. Guess I've been in the backwoods ( & known all the local cops) too long.KULTULZ said:Not only illegal but makes the seller responsible for anything that happens with the truck until the tags are turned in. Bad idea for a seller.
If you had bought a car or a pickup you could drive it home without a problem with just the signed title and some form of proof of insurance. But you have bought a truck which brings you into a whole new world of regulations. I cannot drive the truck in me avatar out of the state of Iowa without buying a trip permit in the state I enter or having papers of apportionment. Decorated or not you probably are not going to make it past the first weigh station you come to without the proper permits. Even if you license it in Colorado first or run on the other guy's plates you will have to by permits for every state you cross if you do not have papers of apportionment. Save yourself some time and hassle and check with your department of transportation before you go to pick up the truck. I'm sure they offer a permit for just this occasion, I know Iowa has a permit you can buy to drive home a truck that is purchased out of stateKULTULZ said:That size truck (especially decorated) just might attract the attention of individual state DOT that you cross. I would contact CO immediately to see if they offer a TEMP or TRANSPORT tag and that you have insurance papers specific to the truck's VIN along with a CERTIFIED BILL of SALE. It may also require a DOT Inspection if it is registered over 10,000#.
Either that or go around scales and move it on the weekend.
MD offers a ten day temp but it is only good for getting the vehicle to an inspection station and cannot be operated out of state.
Originally, I did. But being such a big rig (27', 10k lbs) was prohibitive. In addition, I'm picking up a press in PA & a '67 Cougar in IN for my shop. So, that's out. I'll save more transporting these 2 items myself than I'll spend on Jersey temp tags, so I guess it'll work. Lesser of 2 evils.KULTULZ said:ain:
Have you priced having it transported to CO? Maybe just the state line?
