Quick Title Service Coming to Thurston County May 5
Thurston County Auditor's licensing division first to offer same-day title service in South Sound

Starting Monday, May 5, residents in Thurston County will be able to get same-day vehicle and vessel title service at the Thurston County Auditor's Office in Olympia.

"We're always looking for ways to improve our customer service, and adding Quick Title to the services we offer was an obvious choice for us," said Thurston County Auditor Mary Hall. "This same-day title service will help anyone who is trying to complete a private sale and needs the title to do it. We're really pleased to offer this new convenient option for our residents."

With a typical title transaction, customers must wait four to six weeks for the title to arrive in the mail from the state Department of Licensing after they have filed the paperwork and paid all of the necessary fees. The new Quick Title service will now allow customers to walk in to the Auditor's Office and walk out the same day with the title for a $50 fee in addition to all other necessary fees.

Since each vehicle and vessel title transaction is unique, the county's licensing staff members encourage customers to bring all of their relevant documents with them to the Auditor's Office. Quick Title service is not available online.

For more information, including "Quick Title Q&A," go to the Thurston County Auditor's Licensing Division webpages at www.co.thurston.wa.us/auditor and click on the "Licensing" tab. For Quick Title transactions and other vehicle and vessel licensing transactions, visit the Thurston County Auditor's Office in Building One at the County Courthouse complex at 2000 Lakeridge Drive in Olympia.
