Buy or sell a musical instrument
So, you want to buy or sell a musical instrument?
Let's be clear about having a proper musical instrument bill of sale.
If you want to safeguard the deal you need a musical bill of sale to clearly state the details of the instrument that you are buying or selling.
If you do want to re-sell the instrument, your bill of sale from the person you bought it from will instill the confidence in the buyer that it was not stolen.
Get a Bill of Sale
A musical instrument bill of sale should mention year, make, model, color etc.
Don't get a cheesy sales slip receipt that says "Sold - One trumpet" - that is useless.
If you do business on Craig's List or through a local newspaper or trader magazine for an example you are most likely dealing with someone you never met before.
Get good paperwork. Also give good paper work.
If you are selling to a stranger it will give them more confidence to do business with you if they see that they are going to get a solid "Bill Of Sale".
The form you will print from this file is a really nice and crisp version with places for proper details.
