Need Conforming Certificate of Origin

ARGH!!!! I hate the MVA! Apparently the certificate of origin supplied by ETI is not on the correct paper for me to register the trailer. I need it on some special paper so that it "conforms" to some standard. Anyone else have this problem How do I fix it??

Are you the only Escape owner in Maryland? If not, maybe you can contact ETI for assistance, as they may have dealt with this before. What did they mean by conforming? Did they tell you exactly what is needed? Good luck.

They showed me a form with fancy script at the top, said it had special security features in the paper and said I needed one.

How do vehicle dealers within, or manufactures outside the state get the paper? Maybe, if I am not being overly optimistic they can send their "special paper" to ETI to generate one. Good luck in finding someone that has the authority and capacity to do this.

My suggestion is to go to a different DMV office. I don't know how things work in MA, but in OR, no two DMVs have the same level of knowledge. If I get a NO at one, I go to a different one and often get a YES.

That is probably the best and easiest idea, and probably true in California as well.

I had similar problem last year registering my 19' in Virginia. I went to a different DMV office and they processed it without question with the paperwork provided by ETI.

FBG,

Here's MD MVA's webpage for titling and registering a new vehicle. It may help.
Maryland Vehicle Title and Registration Information

Glen,
Thanks. I have been on that site several times and called MVA. Still not sure I have a fix. Did you have trouble with you registration?

Kris,

Our egg doesn't hatch until the end of the month. So we'll need to go through this (so I've got a vested interest in seeing you through this
:-)).

According to the MD MVA website, you need to present four (4) documents to title/register a new vehicle. They are: (1) form VR-005, (2) a Certificate of Origin (produced by the manufacturer), (3) a bill of sale, and (4) an odometer disclosure statement.


The COO is probably what they expecting to see something fancy. A simple explanation that what you have is what the manufacturer provided should be, and often is, good enough. If not, a simple query as to the underlying basis for requiring a particular kind of COO may be sufficient to unfreeze things.


PM me if you want to discuss offline.


Glenn
