Whether it’s chasing twisters or sightseeing in small town America, Arkansas certainly has plenty to offer those that just want a glimpse of a slower pace of life.

Are you Registering Late?

The required number of days to get your car registered is 30, so make sure you get it done within the time limit. If you were unable to get your car legally recorded at the stipulated time, you will be asked to pay:

  • A fee for registering late: you will have to pay $30 for each 10 days of not completing your registration.
  • And for sales taxes paid late, you will have to pay ten percent of the owed cash.

Did you not use your car, after registering it within the compulsory 30 days? If so, you will not be asked to pay a late registration fee.

You should make sure a legal document signifying your vehicle was not used is presented. This will guarantee you an exemption from late payment.     

To transfer a vehicle: The price you will have to pay to transfer the registration of the old vehicle to your new one is $1. However, a fee difference will be applied if it is transferred to a car that has more weight. For a transfer from a car that is heavier than the one being transferred to, there is no refund.

Procedures for Automobile Recordings for the Armed forces

Below are details for military personnel, both for residents in Arkansas and Non-resident.

For armed forces personnel staying in AR: The same procedure that has been explained previously applies to U.S armed forces personnel residing in Arkansas. However, if you want to have the vehicle registered and stationed out of Arkansas, then contact the Motor vehicle office AR.

You are not a resident, but posted in Arkansas? There are two options if you are part of the armed forces personnel stationed in AR, but you do not reside in Arkansas:

  • Keep the registration of your former residence.
  • Register the car or truck in Arkansas. There is an exemption for non-resident personnel from the various property or taxes of assessment that are levied on car owners who want to register.
    • For further help, please visit the revenue office of the OMV in your area, with a statement of your earnings and leave. The report helps verify your record relating to your home. Then, undergo the same procedure of registering, without the need for personal or assessment taxes.

For those seeking to register their automobile outside of Arkansas, having a car registered outside Arkansas is impossible. You are only allowed to title the automobile by sending a mail, but to have an authentic certificate of registration, which would enable you to get your vehicle titled, contact the office of Motor Vehicles by dialing their number.        

For a vehicle that is a salvaged designate, it is essential to have an accurate identification number of your vehicle VIM inspection before registering. To do this, visit the office of any law enforcement agency, and ask them for a vehicle identification number inspection. This inspection can be performed by certified local law enforcement personnel.

Working with his mentor Tony Taylor, Joe Webster has learned the ins and outs of this industry which is largely misunderstood.

Reviews from Customers in Arkansas

  • I called Joe a couple times, but he did not answer. 15 minutes later he returned my call apologizing and explaining he was speaking to another client. I asked him a few questions and requested a quote. While waiting for it, I called 2 more companies, so I’d have more options.

    The quote arrived by email a short time afterwards with a lot of details which convinced me we were speaking the same language. Because of this, I choose them to ship my Honda to Arkansas. Although one of the other quotes was $100 cheaper, the company seemed less reliable, and I didn’t want to risk it.

    A1 Auto Transport did a flawless job moving my baby, and from beginning to end, I had no complaints. It arrived a few hours earlier than promised in the exact condition I left it.

    - Peter W.
  • I don’t normally write reviews for practically anything, but I feel like I have to make an exception for A1 Auto Transport. I couldn’t recommend this company enough for such a job well done.

    My son and I run a small auto repair business, and we needed a client’s car moved to Arkansas in less than 2 days. We were so pressed for time that we even considered just going for the same transport people we worked with last spring, who weren’t so hot on the service and communications part of the deal.

    After many hours going through hundreds of calls and emails from all these companies offering ridiculous rates (not to mention somewhat suspicious reviews), we were about ready to give up.

    Finally, I got a call from one of the A1 staff named Joe. Virtually every person you speak with from this company is very polite, professional, and straightforward. They have a way of assuring you the process is not as complicated as you thought.

    Joe gave us a reasonable quote that he promised will not “mysteriously” change after the whole transaction is completed. He made sure to update us all the way to Arkansas. Talk about a job well done at a competitive price tag, plain and simple. Tell you the truth, that’s all you’d ever need to succeed in any kind of work. I’m definitely staying with A1 Auto Transport, no doubt about it.
